Exactly, and this is why it is smart he's not doing anything for just black America, but rather all of us Americans. Any educated person understands that if he does something to promote just his race using the presidency as that tool, then any future black, azn, mexican, indian, etc candidates will be that much more unlikely to be able to get elected. The seed of doubt will be in people's mind that they are not voting for a president, but rather for someone that will seek to advance their race.
