Reflections on President Barack Obama
By: Dr. Ray C. Minor
About the Book
This compelling critique offers fresh and impartial commentary on former President Barack Obama and the politics surrounding him as the first president of color of the United States. It praises the President when warranted and scolds him and his political foes when appropriate. A critical comparison is made between Obama and Lincoln and Obama and Johnson. The essay questions the hope and change promised by candidate Obama, and also casts doubt on the new Trump administration.
