Don Lemon talks about wealthy businessman Rupert Murdoch‘s tweets that have sparked a heated debate that President Barack Obama hasn’t done enough for black people.
According to New York Magazine several activists spoke out about their concerns:
“Too often, he uses these occasions not to push for greater accountability within law enforcement but to push a narrative that black people should behave more responsibly.” Alicia Garza, co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter
“Obama has a famous swag. It’s a signal he sends with his walk that says, ‘I got this.’ He had it with trade, immigration, health care. But he doesn’t have it when he talks about race.” Paul Butler, Professor of Georgetown Law School
“I understood the tightrope from the beginning. He’s the president of all people. But sometimes it felt like he was president of everyone except black people.” Van Jones, Obama’s Former Adviser on Green Jobs.
