This was an excellent segment from Friday’s Democracy Now. Michael Eric Dyson is the Obama apologist on the show. Many of the charges he has no answer for. Pretty much anything that Barry and Holder punted on, he excuses by that they were already facing a shitstorm (from reactionaries and racists) as the first black officials in their positions. We should be happy with what they have done, says Dyson because look at how much small-mindedness and racism they have faced allegedly because of it.

It’s my position that no matter what Obama did, he’d face virtually the same from the groups that he’s gotten shit from. Those groups have won, by him being a total corporate/Wall Street/corporatocracy puppet! I thought the idea of electing a black president is that he can do the same job as someone of any other race? Michael Eric Dyson says no.
