If I were the first African-American president these are some things that I would do:
The cause of “healing” the black family would be high on my list, just below national security and securing the borders. Children need both fathers and mothers. Little boys without fathers usually don't thrive as well as those with two heterosexual parents. I would create a commission to learn about and when needed re-educate African-American families (My emphasis would be on improving the education of African-American boys). Then I would budget enough resources to implement their recommendations.
Second on my list would be securing the homeland from illegal immigration and extraditing illegals who create crime and absorb jobs that are needed by legal residents and citizens. Many of these jobs would otherwise have been taken by people of color who are legal residents or citizens.
I would initiate a monthly gathering of community and state leaders. I would go from one state to another to discuss racial concerns and find solutions. Laissez-faire attitudes aren’t productive in these kind of situations. I would have follow-up conversations with encouragement to stick with these improvements over time.
I would invite godly men and women to pray for and with me for wisdom to handle the complicated issues that are brought to my attention. I would attend prayer services or create them at the White House.
I would create work-related incentive programs to advance the self-sufficiency of my African-American community members.
These are the first things that I would have done had I had the opportunity.
