USA is a tribal country, whites are a minority and Trump is their leader. Obama was leader of the other tribe, blacks. Iz de white man time now.
No, sir, Obama had fewer blacks in his cabinet than George W. Bush, and he did nothing for blacks for the very reason you mention - he did not want to be seen pandering to blacks.
I don’t think Obama was making that calculation. I think he was trying to be all of America’s president. He lost Blacks’ support because they thought he was not fully leaning their way.
