There's a common misconception (more of an ignorant exaggeration) among those who oppose former President Barack Obama, that he had single handily set back race relations by 50 years. That itself sounds ridiculous, but there's more to how he really didn't do such an action. Many claim this due to his support of Black Lives Matter, an organization that took rise in 2016 with the intention of standing up to what they believed was racial injustice, though the protestors did a horrible job of representing it which gave it a bad reputation. (Referring to Milwaukee, Charlotte, and Baltimore riots) A president can have an influence, but he himself cannot set back relations between select identities to a select number of years by supporting a movement for its respective intention, also considering Obama didn't support the violence or riots at all. It's essential to remember that BLM itself isn't bad, the protestors, which were composed of mostly angry individuals, a lot of which were from the inner cities, had done actions that gave it a bad name, but that doesn't mean the movement itself is bad. These individuals were barely influenced by the supporting president, rather they were influenced by their reaction towards recent events of cop killings, particularly black deaths by the hands of white cops. Also consider the rise of millennial social justice activists, (including those who make up a tiny percentage of BLM but apparently represent it politically) they weren't influenced by Obama or Democrats in general, but rather their perception of the world and how they intend to take radical acts to push their agenda of identity privilege, gender spectrum, censorship of offensive concepts, and other regressive ideals. It's astounding for so many individuals to let their hatred of Obama blind them, resulting to conspiracies such as this one, and worse ones such as the degrading concept of his wife Michelle, being a transsexual. This obviously being untrue, exists in the world of anti-Obama individuals, and similar to how ludicrous a lot of anti-Trump individuals are, this is just as disgusting. Yes, I support POTUS Donald Trump, and yes, I supported Barack Obama too.
