Civility Watchdog: June 10, 2016, Stephen Moore

The greatest victims of Barack Obama’s litany of economic failures have been blacks and Hispanics. Obama’s no racist, but the impact of his policies is. Does it really matter that he means well?
-- Pundit Stephen Moore, June 10, 2016.

Comment: Moore is claiming that, although President Obama doesn't mean to harm minorities, his policies have that effect, and therefore he is hardly any better than a racist. Is that right? And is it true that Obama's policies hurt minorities? If it were discovered that Republican policies had that effect, would it be fair to accuse them of being little better than racists?
