To the Editor:
A lot has been said about the failures of our president, from the poor economy to a weak foreign policy. While these may be valid issues, there is one failure that is inexcusable.
In 2008, Barack Obama ran as a uniter, someone who sought to end racial divides, or at the very least, lessen them. He failed to recognize his real potential significance in history by deepening those divides ever wider. He could have stood at the presidential podium and repeated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words ... “One day ... little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.”
