Nothing could be further from the lefts current vision, which is that the very concept of post-racial integration is an illusion designed to mask the reality of an eternal white supremacy. ... there is no recovery from the original sin, no possible redemption, and certainly no space for the concept of an individual citizenship that transcends race and can unite Americans. There is no freedom here. There is just oppression. The question is merely about who oppresses whom.
The idea that African-Americans have some responsibility for their own advancement, that absent fatherhood and a cultural association of studying with acting white are part of the problem ... is now almost a definition of racism itself. And the animating goal of progressive politics is unvarnished race and gender warfare. What matters before anything else is what race and gender you are, and therefore what side you are on. And in this neo-Marxist worldview, ...the very idea of America as a liberating experiment, dissolving tribal loyalties in a common journey toward individual opportunity, is anathema.
There is no arc of history here, just an eternal grinding of the racist and sexist wheel. What matters is that nonwhites fight and defeat white supremacy, that women unite and defeat oppressive masculinity.... What matters is equality of outcome, and it cannot be delayed. All the ideas that might complicate this meritocracy, for example, or a color-blind vision of justice, or equality of opportunity rather than outcome are to be mocked until they are dismantled. And the political goal is not a post-racial fusion,... but the rallying of the victims against the victimizers, animated by the core belief that a non-white and non-male majority will at some point come, after which the new hierarchies can be imposed by fiat.

Btw, I checked the "Copyright" posting list and I didn't see anything about "New York Magazine," so I excerpted to 300 words, just to be safe.
Not destroyed enough. Still a lot to destroy...
Obama and Co. were anti white racists
The Unity and post racial nonsense were just ploys to get naive, guilt ridden whites to fall for his communist bigotry
[We too easily forget that the biggest accomplishment of Trumps term in office so far a massive increase in debt in a time of robust economic growth is the inverse of Obamas studied sense of fiscal responsibility]
Wow. He wrote that with a straight face? He’s got a future in deadpan comedy.
The Obama presidency could easily be describes as the “Seinfeld Presidency”.
The Obama presidential library will be “Obama’s ‘Seinfeld’ Presidential Liebrary”.
In economic policy, Obamas slow winnowing of the deficit even in times of sluggish growth has been completely reversed. We too easily forget that the biggest accomplishment of Trumps term in office so far a massive increase in debt in a time of robust economic growth is the inverse of Obamas studied sense of fiscal responsibility.
President Obama? You mean the guy who ran up more debt than all the prior presidents combined?
The targeted Chicago neighborhood is now suing to block the Obama Library from being built.
The damage is done. The legacy is ironclad to the hardcore left.
This piece should have come with a double barf alert.
O.J. did it.
The Seinfeld Presidency would just like the TV show, about nothing.
‘Legasy’ as a concept is a neutral thing.
Hitler, Stalin Mao also had ‘Legasies’ which have taken decades and blood to destroy/counter by people who want freedom.
But then those kinds of legacies are worshiped by leftists.
Same goes for ‘change’ and Obama’s destructive leftist ‘changes’ are rejected and being undone.
I’m confused (not difficult)
Obama’s Legacy is being revealed.
He was and will always be, an American hating Kenyan twink coke head with a smoking habit.
Trump isn’t destroying Obama’s legacy, he’s just defining it.
Couldn’t get very far into that. Too many lies.
