#WeekendDiscussion: How could Obama have helped improve race relations in America?

My question WAS going to be “has Obama helped improve race relations in America” but we all know he hasn’t, and I didn’t want the question to be rhetorical anyway, so the weekend discussion (a new feature I am going to try and keep going here) is on how you think he could have helped race relations for America – and do you really think he wanted to?

Many, even some on our own side, had some degree of hope that Obama – supposedly a “post-racial President” who wanted to move beyond the “blame the white guy” meme – would have a positive impact on the state of race relations in America, but he has been a miserable failure in this department.

What do you think he could have/should have done differently? Serious discussion.
