Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” President Barack Obama’s former Harvard Law School professor Charles J. Ogletree, Jr. agreed with the president’s greatest critics Dr. Ben Carson that race relations in America have gotten worst during the presidency of Barack Obama.
Ogletree said, “I hate to say this, but I think about what my father and grandfather told me about race relations way back when I was a young kid, how they were devastated with the idea of separation based on race. it is worse now. We think of people who don’t have jobs who can’t go to school, people who can’t get healthcare. We are in a situation right now that will create Ferguson over and over and over again.”
When asked Dr. Carson said, “I agree that things have definitely deteriorated. We look at a situation like Ferguson and people say, that’s causing more racial division. the fact of the matter is, ferguson is a manifestation of the racial division as we see it right now.”
