The election of President Barack Obama in 2008 offered the pithy campaign slogan “Hope and Change” as well as a real chance to heal some of the country’s racial wounds.
Podcast king Adam Carolla says the latter never materialized. In fact, he argues the country’s ongoing dialogue over race got more divisive since Obama’s election.
He shared his views on the subject during his weekly Monday commentary on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor.
Ten years ago, if I were to ask you, ‘we’re going to elect our first black president,’ do you think you would have said, ‘Well then, there’ll be more arguing about race, or less arguing about race?’ We have done 10 times more arguing about race since we’ve had a black president.
