When Barack Obama was running for president for the first time in 2008, his status as an African American convinced even long-time conservatives to vote Democrat. He was supposed to be the president that finally put race behind us, and let us move on as a more unified country.

Race relations in America are worse now than at any point in decades, and nearly everyone has given up on the president's ability to bring the country back together.
