He doesn’t want to be the “Black President” which would account for his lousy track record for helping the African American community.
Did I say that?
For several months, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking…and I wonder if the question I asked in the opening is really a prophecy, given the mixed reviews of the president’s record.
Sure, he’s had some successes, but so many failures, in regards to perception of him.
In 2008, Black people were largely responsible for getting him elected, however, it clearly became evident that he was not interested in helping those African Americans who needed the most help. In fact, he went out of his way to distance himself from the African American community;particularly appeasing whites, many of whom had no hesitation to show their disdain for him, even suggesting that he wasn’t even American.
During speeches, many times, when a high visibility of African Americas were present, Obama often would seemingly “talk down to” or scold African Americans, as in the speech he gave at Morehouse. I was so outraged by his tone, I promptly sent him a letter, calling him out on what I felt was a spectacle for every racist white liberal who seems to feel that Black people are responsible for every negative thing in this country. However, many Black people kept silent, as to appear in solidarity in support for the nations fist African American president. Any criticism they had would be kept under tight vault.
Now however, some are speaking bluntly and many are not impressed at all. New Black Panther Party Chairman, Malik Zulu put it this way: “Black peoples are the whores and prostitutes of the Democratic Party, and mistreated mistress that is courted in the late of night, but left hanging when it is time for real change in the light of the post election day,” Shabazz wrote, following a dissertation on the need to “Vote for Revolution.
The black community is at large no better off that (sic) before he was in office. We are curious as to what his agenda is for Black people in America and if he even has one.
Mr. Obama’s policies have not corrected the economic troubles of America, they have gotten worse,” Kweli wrote. “The debt continues to expand [into the trillions], and the administration’s handling of international relations has hardened dialogue with foreign nations. Mr. Obama’s policies have been especially harsh to us the Black community. He [Obama] bailed out Wall Street and the auto makers but kept us at the top of the unemployment ladder.”
If this isn’t enough, just look at his appointments:
Back in 2013, Black Caucus Chairman, Marcia Fudge, took Obama to task for having a lack of Blacks in his cabinet. “A month after Fudge’s request, President Obama nominated Rep. Mel Watt (D-NC) to be the Director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Â Then, the President nominated former Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx to be the Secretary of Transportation. Â Today, Jeh Johnson, a Morehouse man whose dad was President of Fisk, was nominated by the President to be the next Secretary of Homeland Security. Â If Johnson is confirmed by the Senate, he will be the third African American member of Obama’s cabinet. – See more at: http://www.crewof42.com/cbc-2/watt-foxx-johnson-3-blacks-nominated-after-fudge-request/#sthash.PoDwmkvs.dpuf
Look at the racial hue. Hhhmmm…is this sending a message of how Obama really thinks?
If a picture is worth a thousand words… He tries to act like he’s one of us, but intrinsically, the man is as white as his late mother. Only “they” should be in charge–certainly not US. Is this the message?
In 2016, We will most definitely get our answer…won’t we?
