It shouldn’t come as a surprise that when a new president is elected, the country is divided along partisan lines. However, it’s somewhat novel to think that race relations under a black president are worse by the time he leaves office than when he was sworn in — especially when young African Americans are leveling this claim.
That’s how Antonia Okafor feels after eight years under President Barack Obama, who she voted for in 2008.
In an interview with the Daily Caller, Okafor, a correspondent for Independent Journal Review and vocal gun rights advocate, said she voted for the man and not on policy when it comes to Obama. The lifelong Democrat realized the errors of her ways and became a conservative much to the chagrin of her liberal friends.
“There are not many [black conservatives] out there because their side doesn’t want people like me to be out there.” Okafor told the Daily Caller. “[Liberals] know that if I say something, people are going to listen.”
When asked about the Chicago kidnapping of a young white man with special needs by four African Americans, Okafor was shocked and believes President Obama has created a culture in America that makes this type of behavior acceptable.
“Under Obama’s administration in the last few years has been almost this validation to say that ‘white people are bad,'” Okafor pointed out. “If you’re not white, then really you’re superior.”
