As pundits, journalists, historians, and the rest of us start to reflect on the accomplishments and failures of Mr. Obama during his tenure as president, surely one of the saddest of his failures has been his squandering of his unique opportunity to solidify the gains in the harmony between the races that have been accomplished over several difficult decades.

Perhaps we should have expected that from a man who spent many of his formative years under the tutelage of radicals, social agitators, and America-haters.
