Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Hated, mainly because he is Black, Pres. Obama says Race Relations are Better?

Obama: Racial tensions surfacing 'probably is healthy' - CNN.com

With racial issues and policing headlining the political conversation in America in the midst of nationwide protests and the murder http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/18/Barack_Obama_speaks_at_Camp_Lejeune_2-27-09_3.JPGof two police officers in New York, President Barack Obama said he believes the issue of race relations is surfacing "in a way that probably is healthy."

Obama welcomed the attention race relations and policing in minority communities have attracted recently and said he believes there will be "progress" on those issues in the next year as a result of the task force of police, community leaders and activists he assembled this year.

"I actually think that [the U.S. is] probably in its day-to-day interactions less racially divided," Obama said in an interview with NPR released Monday and recorded before his family vacation in Hawaii. "The issue of police and communities of color being mistrustful of each other is hardly new; that dates back a long time. It's just something that hasn't been talked about."

Obama: Race relations better despite police incidents

While police shootings and protests dominated the headlines this year, President Obama says race relations on the day-to-day level are better now than when he took office.

"I assure you, from the perspective of African Americans or Latinos in poor communities who have been dealing with this all their lives, they wouldn't suggest somehow that it's worse now than it was 10, 15 or 20 years ago," Obama said in an interview with NPR News.

Problems between police and communities of color are not new, Obama said, and are now being discussed in ways that are helpful.
