Michael Eric Dyson: Obama ‘Owes’ It To White People ‘To Challenge Them’ On Race

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” Georgetown Professor Michael Eric Dyson said that on the issue of race, President Obama “owes that specifically to white people, to challenge them in the most loving and encouraging way possible.”

Dyson said Obama “is one of the greatest minds, when it comes to race. He wrote one of the greatest memoirs in history, ‘Dreams from My Father,’ that deals with the complexity, the nuance, the sophistication of race. We need that president, courageous, bold, articulate, and willing to endure whatever criticism he may have to endure, in order to lead this nation forward. He does not owe that simply to African-American people. He owes that specifically to white people, to challenge them in the most loving and encouraging way possible.”
