I totally disagree that blacks of today do not hold Obama in high regard. As someone who has worked with many blues collar blacks and shared social as well as work related events, I have yet to hear a single criticism off the great Obama. When confronted with questions of his accomplishments, they refused any dialogue even when confronted with his policies they privately with which vehemently disagree.
I work in similar circumstances, and there is an unspoken rule that they can’t publicly denounce him. They were so excited when he was elected, but as it became clear he wasn’t going to pay them any more mind than basic lip service, their enthusiasm cooled. Within a year of his election, every picture they’d hung up had come down, and they simply stopped talking about him. In my area in particular, foreigners were replacing blacks in the workplace rapidly; a blind person could see it, and so did the blacks.
Today you’d never know from observing them that Obama had ever existed. His last-minute appeals to support Hillary in PA went unheeded, and she lost states where black voters could have put her over the top (and therefore the election).
