We had a black president because he was the face of change when people wanted it the most; that was his entire campaign position, his promise... and he failed as much as he could on that promise.

Don't confuse affirmative action with virtue signaling. While similar, one is forced on the weak, the other practiced by those in power. And those in power don't want to share their power with those outside their circles, believe me, this is a fact as old as mankind.

If it wasn't for affirmative action, obama's would never have gotten into harvard. if not for affirmative action, he would not have gotten into key positions in the legal field which put him in direct contact with soros. If not for affirmative action, we would never have had to deal with a cuck like obama who was "the face of change".

If you check Obama's career you will find that he is a brilliant man and as a politician he was, as said by others more knowledgeable about the subject: "a politician's politician".

Only a man that skillful could have done all the damage he did while escaping virtually all consequences and somehow even celebrated by some of them. Of course, he was the puppet of the establishment and that helped a lot.

However, to disregard him as just the result of causality of affirmative action is misguided and counterproductive. If you underestimate your adversaries, specially when they won't stop "winning" you are in for a spectacular defeat. Trump is the result of exactly that by the establishment.
