Barack Obama has released a new book reflecting upon his two terms as President of the United States. In it, he lauds many accomplishments and critiques some issues that fell short.
With a Joe Biden presidency on the horizon, pundits are sounding alarms that America needs to awaken to recapture the spirit of the Obama era.
Obama’s #APromisedLand shows how he got there & left most of his people behind. It shatters any lingering illusions of him being a fighting Joshua & shows his captivity to Wall Street greed, Pentagon militarism & refusal to confront massive black social misery & U.S. poverty! https://t.co/aV6njYZSll
