President Barack Obama gave a majestic speech in Dallas, one of the best of his presidency, at once a soaring tribute to slain police officers and an affirmation of peaceful protest.It was mostly silent and unacknowledged until the very fact of the Obama presidency cast it in stark and unforgiving light.Trump, you will recall, has been one of the most prominent "birther" voices seeking to deny Obama's legitimacy as president. He encourages those who cannot abide the thought of a black president to pretend the whole thing never really happened. Not all who support Trump, of course, are racists; and not all whites who blame Obama for heightening racial tension are Republicans. What is novel, though, is that the U.S. president is himself African-American.To win the White House, I once wrote, Obama had to be seen as the least aggrieved black man in America.When the next president is sworn in, Obama will leave office without having healed the nation's festering racial wounds.
