Poll Suggests That Obama Is Helping Race Relations — Agree?

Although President Obama is reluctant to discuss his personal role in the country's race narrative, Americans do feel differently about race since he took office. A new poll shows that two-thirds of Americans believe that relations among the races are generally good.

The percentage of blacks who have a positive view of race relations has doubled since July, indicating that Barack Obama's presidency has impacted perceptions.

One black woman surveyed explained that Americans seem to be working together. She said: "Before, there was more of a separation, blacks working for black goals and whites for white goals. Obama has helped change the perception of blacks in a positive way, but it’s also the times."

Do you think Obama has helped make people more open to people of different races?
