We have come to the point where Obama is not woke enough for some people on the left.
In Chicago, immigration activists are objecting to naming a school for the former president, if you can believe it.
Is this proof that everyone on the left has lost their minds?

Activists protest renaming Chicago school after ‘oppressor’ Barack Obama
Immigration activists are objecting to renaming a Chicago school after Barack Obama.
“I will not be part of renaming a school after someone who did not and does not represent the undocumented community,” said District 60 school board member Edgar Castellanos, who says he came to the U.S. as an undocumented child, according to ABC 7 Chicago.
Waukegan’s Board of Education met Tuesday evening to debate renaming Thomas Jefferson Middle School and Daniel Webster Middle School, after it was decided the historical figures either owned slaves or supported slavery.
One of the top contenders for Thomas Jefferson Middle School’s new name is that of the first Black president, Barack Obama, and former First Lady Michelle. But that name is drawing the ire of immigration activists and some in the Latino community. Activists staged a protest outside the board meeting Tuesday.
“From the time Barack Obama became President until 2017 when he left, he today is still the highest-ranking president with deportations in our nation,” said Julie Contreras, who runs shelters for immigrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border. She said Obama failed to deliver on his promises on immigration.
“We feel that Barack Obama did disservice to us. He denied us, and he didn’t stop the deportations, the way he promised,” Contreras continued.
When even Obama is no longer good enough for the left, no one is.
They’re trying to cancel President Obama. No one’s safe. https://t.co/4BE9vtOomJ
