Not Enough.

I can't be the only one who had this song come to mind because of the ongoing mess in Ferguson.

Things have changed since the mid '60s.  But not enough.  Far from enough.

What makes you think they were ever any better because the USA has a black president?

I think that the election of Obama just gave whites an excuse to be openly racist to blacks, IMHO, and the shooting of Travyon Martin and the young man in Ferguson is the proof.

Oh, I'm well aware of the bullshit Obama's election has caused. And much of what is said about him is just old Red Scare stuff reworked for the 21st Century. The implications of much of the Birther movement ranting is that Obama is someone's catspaw, just like some though JFK would warp US policy at the behest of the Vatican.
