Former President Obama was asked whether he felt he told the story of race in America well enough during his time as the nation’s first Black president.

Glenn Beck Is Back On Fox News, This Time To Take Back His Apology To Barack Obama For Calling Him A Racist Over A Decade Ago
If you think Fox News is unhinged now, well, it wouldn’t have gotten there without Glenn Beck. In the late aughts and early teens, the talk radio stooge-turned-TV commentator had the most deranged show on the network. Where Bill O’Reilly would sit at a desk and rattle off his offensive theories, Beck would stand in front of a chalkboard, patiently laying out convoluted nonsense conspiracy theories. At the peak of his powers, he got compared to Network’s Harold Beale and inspired Jon Stewart to dedicate Daily Show episodes to epic impersonations. But even Beck was too bonkers for Fox News. The two parted ways after only two years. Beck lost his grip on the culture and, eventually, he even started apologizing for the way he’d once acted.
Former President Barack Obama feels optimistic about the future, despite calling out cancel culture as problematic — an opinion shared by his two, young daughters. Are we expected to be perfect? That is the question many Americans ask themselves every time they want to share a thought or voice an opinion, in an era where accountability seems to know no statute of limitations. In a recent sit-down interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, former President Barack Obama shared his thoughts on this generation’s recent lean in on the concept of cancel culture, and how he’s navigated conversations about the trend with his two daughters.

Former President Barack Obama said in an interview with CNN Monday that the Republican Party's positions have become "unrecognizable and unacceptable" since he left office.

The new generation of cancel culture has almost divided us on a social level, with half the world ready to demolish any and all entities that go against us reaching a PG-rated utopia and the other side wishing we could go back to the days of ’90s Jerry Springer where chants like, “Whore! Whore! Whore!” from the audience would get the show renewed for another three seasons as opposed to getting taken off the air.
