Dr Carlton Robinson on Obama

In regard to the the first 100 days and racial policy I believe that we are a bit premature in assessing action/inaction. I feel strongly that we as a nation, and the president as our leader, are ill-equipped with an infrastructure capable of addressing racial policy as we understand it through a conflicted lens. My reasoning is that our country and specifically the African American community has too many social and cultural variations to address as a general community. From my perspective we need to change our approach from broad generalizations to focused levels of social and cultural accountability. I would like to see his policies move toward a measure of accountability rather than speeches and talks on race.
