How much difference did it make for the country to have its first black president when it comes to race relations?
Zippo, says Missouri Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, a Kansas City Democrat who was asked by The Hill newspaper to talk about it.
“In terms of people feeling much better in regards to race — no, that's not happened, and I don't know any thoughtful people who think it has,” said Cleaver, the former head of the Congressional Black Caucus.
But he’s not placing the blame on the president.
Never miss a local story.
“Whether he addresses the issues or not is not going to change the reality of the era,” Cleaver said.
