From one of America's leading experts on race comes a hard look at the difficult truth behind the presidency of Barack Obama -- we are not a postracial society. In fact, race is more relevant and controversial than ever. When Barack Obama was elected the forty-fourth president of the United States, he upset a great deal of the standard thinking about race in America. Critics and pundits wondered whether, as the son of an African father and a white American mother, he was really ''black'' and just how hard he would work to improve the lives of black people in America. Far from heralding the new dawn of a postracial society, the biracial president, often despite his own efforts to play down racial tensions, brought America's question of race out into the light of day. With a unique opportunity to jump-start the national discussion on race, Obama has deferred, instead choosing to walk a tightrope to avoid stirring controversy from all sides. In Presidential Race, preeminent public intellectual Michael Eric Dyson explores the unprecedented promise that the election of Barack Obama brought. His research includes an Oval Office interview with the president where he takes on the issue with the commander-in-chief, one-on-one. Ultimately, Dyson finds President Obama lacking thus far in his ability to meet the promise of bringing America to a frank and honest discussion of the ways in which the legacy of race and, more pertinently, racism continue to affect our lives.
