Our Times

When future historians look back at this passage in our nation’s history, I suspect they’ll conclude that this Obama-isn’t-American nuttiness refracted the insecurities and, in some cases, the hatred that a portion of conservative white America felt about having a black president and about the transformation of what many thought of as their white nation into a genuinely multiracial republic.

    Thank you for putting this quote front and center. I am confused as anyone about the temperament of the American public, or is it just mainstream media?, when it comes to charting sentiment around the performance of Obama. I think the general insecurity with the state of the U.S. is indeed being reflected here.
