This book is the first in-depth examination of the 25 million Americans with the most intense hatred of President Obama—arguably the most Republican-friendly of recent Democratic presidents—and what the mindsets of these "Obama Haters" teach us about race and ethnicity in America today. • Offers a critique of Obama from the left on his health insurance reform, judicial and political appointments, civil liberties policies, educational reforms, and strategy for dealing with African American concerns • Presents hard data showing that Obama Haters are so extreme in their conservatism and in their anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim, and anti-black attitudes that in comparison, Tea Party supporters appear to be moderate • Boldly identifies strategies for dealing with white racial anxiety about a diversifying America • Provides empirically derived estimates of the percentage of the American public with strong anti-black, anti-Latino, anti-immigrant, and anti-Muslim attitudes

In this collection, academics from both sides of the Atlantic analyze the confluence of a politician, a process, and a problem - Barack Obama, the 2008 US presidential election, and the 'problem' of race in contemporary America. The special focus falls upon Barack Obama himself, who appears in many guises: as an individual from biracial and transnational backgrounds; a skilled, urban African-American organizer and then politician; and as intellectual and author of a bestselling autobiographical exploration. There is a certain representative quality about Obama that makes him a convenient way into the labyrinth of American race relations, national and regional politics (including the South and Hawaii), and past history (particularly from the 1960s to the present). Contributors also explore the role Michelle Obama has played in this process, both separately from and together with her husband, while one theme running through many chapters concerns the myriad ways that the American left, right and centre differ on the nature and future of race in a country that daily becomes more mixed in ethnic and racial terms. Race is everywhere; race is nowhere. The essays are grouped by their approach to the topic of Obama and race: via historical analysis, cultural studies, political science and sociology, as well as pedagogy. The result is an exciting mix of perspectives on one of the most fascinating phenomena of our time. This book was originally published as a special issue of the journal Patterns of Prejudice.

Mit Barack Obama sollte die amerikanische Gesellschaft ihren jahrhundertealten Rassismus überwinden. Am Ende seiner Amtszeit zerschlugen sich die Reste dieser Hoffnung mit der Machtübernahme Donald Trumps, den Ta-Nehisi Coates als "Amerikas ersten weißen Präsidenten" bezeichnet: ein Mann, dessen politische Existenz in der Abgrenzung zu Obama besteht. Coates zeichnet ein bestechend kluges und leidenschaftliches Porträt der Obama-Ära und ihres Vermächtnisses – ein essenzielles Werk zum Verständnis der Vergangenheit, Gegenwart und Zukunft der USA, von einem Autor, dessen eigene Geschichte jener acht Jahre von einem Arbeitsamt in Harlem bis ins Oval Office führte, wo er den Präsidenten interviewte.

In the Arab nation of Libya, black migrant workers were targeted, killed, maimed, and raped in a pogrom that ensured in the aftermath of the NATOaided revolution. The nation of Mauritania stripped the black population of their citizenship. The State of Israel rounded up sub-Saharan blacks and deported them as illegal immigrants. Black football players in Ukraine had banana thrown at them by racist fans. In Italy, a black footballer protested being called a monkey. Black pupils like Damilola Taylor in Britain are often targeted and hacked with knives. Argentine black populations have disappeared in history. In 1988, in Hohai University, China, a riot broke out against black people because they are dating Chinese girls with Chinese students shouting kill the black devils. Black students in India risk life in a denied culture of racism. In the United States, from Rosa Parks to Trayvon Martins, a racist-free society, is still a dream. This book investigates and reveals the art, the culture, the politics, the science, the sociology, the psychology, and the hypocrisy of the resentment against black people in a world that is said to be civilized. Why are black people so hated? What are the scientifi c, cultural, and historical factors that informed such negative perception and despicable mentality? The book navigates the mind-set of those who think to be black is to be cursed whether as individuals, a state, institutions, or an organization. Despite all the enormous achievements and advancements in all fi elds of human endeavors recorded by man, despite all the universal and natural values of freedom, fundamental rights and democracy as proclaimed by man, people of black colour are still despised, disrespected, and perceived differently. This book tries to exclusively dig out the truth and present it bare.

The writer takes a not politically correct view of the racial strife facing America today. He presents a factual history of the plight of black people back to their enslavement. The main purpose of the book is to point out the cowardice of white and black people to put all issues on the table for discussion. The white guilt aspect limits the ability to confront obvious truths and the opportunity for thoughtful dialogue. This book points out the failure of black people to recognize the three most obvious impediments to economic improvement: negative cultural music and media, horrific educational opportunities in every major city and a totally unacceptable out of wedlock birth rate. The most positive black Americans in the civil rights struggle have no meaningful impact on racial discussions in our time while the black and white charlatans continue to divide and prosper. Our African American President has brought racial tensions to an all-time high after his promise to be a unifying force.

In 1970, a working-class, Jewish man from New York City married an African American woman from rural, segregated North Carolina. From their union, Michael Wenger has three children, four grandchildren, and one great grandchild. Years later, Mr. Wenger served as Deputy Director for Outreach and Program Development for President Clinton’s Initiative on Race, an opportunity that confirmed for him the conscious and unconscious bias that people of color confront daily in the United States. Both personally and professionally, Mr. Wenger has peered into a world far beyond the comprehension of most white people in our society. His book, deeply moving and tenderly written, shares the discoveries he’s made. He masterfully weaves his personal and professional journeys and helps readers of all races to become more aware of the pain that well-meaning white Americans inflict on people of color, often without knowing it, and to recognize the richness that awaits those with the courage to embrace our nation’s growing diversity. Mr. Wenger’s remarkable and inspirational story will, at times, move you to tears while occasionally triggering a knowing laugh as he recounts the struggles and triumphs of his journey. It will awaken you to the stark realities of life for some in America today, while fostering hope for and a commitment to a more racially equitable and harmonious future for all.
