Is Obama A Good Role Model?

It all depends on how one defines “success.”  Excellent, thoughful article.

Obama has deposited a shameful hat-trick on the bust of Dr. Martin Luther King that sits in his oval office.  He has put a technically black presidential face on each of what the democratic socialist King called “the triple evils that are interrelated”[iii] – economic exploitation (capitalism), racism (deeply understood as a many-sided institutional system with unequal racial outcomes beyond the relatively trivial question of whether some whites are ready to vote for a certain type of black candidate for mayor or president) and militarism – and on related evils as well, including eco-cide and the Big Brother police state.
