Tell me, Black Americans, what is it you like about President Barack Obama other than the color of his skin? I ask this question because this humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in can see no reason that over 90% of black voters voted for Mr. Obama the second time. (The first time is understandable.) Everything this man has done since being in office has been done for one reason and one reason only. And that has been to promote a bigger role for government and a lessor role for the individual Americans, including black Americans. If that sounds a bit like Marxism, that’s because that is who Barack Obama is. The only thing that I can see that our first black president has done for black Americans is to feed them a constant stream of convenient lies so that the grossly under educated black Americans can blame someone other than themselves for their lot in life.
President Obama’s Marxist leanings were evident in his recent Martin Luther King Day discourse. Her is an excerpt from a Washington Examiner article on Mr. Obama’s MLK day speech:
Too many blacks and minorities in America are having trouble entering the middle class, [Obama] said, and he blamed Wall Street greed and the country’s economic policies for limiting their opportunities.
Calling increased access to economic opportunity a second goal of original March on Washington, Obama said securing the gains the country has made on racial injustice requires “vigilance, not complacency.”
“For what does it profit a man, Dr. King would ask, to sit at an integrated lunch counter if he can’t afford the meal? Obama said.
And Moonbattery translates the above quote for us:
Scrape off the euphemisms, doubletalk, and adolescent demagoguery about “Wall Street greed” and what is left can be translated into this: Blacks should have as much money as whites, regardless of whether they earn it. Since freedom results in differing rewards for differing performances, only a rigidly coercive application of oligarchical collectivism — i.e., communism — can ensure “racial injustice.”
That really is what the President was saying, isn’t it? For him, it is always about redistributing the wealth, From each according their ability and to each according to their need. Of course it is the State that decides what one’s abilities should be and what their needs are.
Once elections are over, a president is supposed to be the president of all the people. How many of you believe Barack Obama has made any effort to be president to all Americans? Not surprisingly, black Americans had gret expectations for America’s first black President. They expected to see some real improvements in”racial justice”. How has that worked out for you, black America? Let’s take a look, shall we?
Mona Charen of Real Clear Politics asks: Is Obama Good fo Black Americans. She has some statistics that should be a concern for all Americans and especially black Americans:
Buried in a New York Times story about the economy was this arresting statistic: Median family income for black Americans has declined a whopping 10.9 percent during the Obama administration. It has declined for other groups as well — 3.6 percent for non-Hispanic whites and 4.5 percent for Hispanics – but the figure for blacks is huge. This decline does not include losses suffered during the financial crisis and the recession that followed, but it instead measures declines since June 2009, when the recession officially ended.
That’s not the only bad news for African-Americans. The poverty rate for blacks is now 25.8 percent. The black labor force participation rate, which rose throughout the 1980s and 1990s, has declined for the past decade and quite sharply under Obama to 61.4 percent. The black unemployment rate, according to Pew Research, stands at 13.4 percent. Among black, male, high school dropouts, PBS’ Paul Salmon reports, the unemployment rate is a staggering 95 percent.
There are much better role models for black Americans than Barack Obama, or Al Sharpton, or Jessie Jackson, or Ophra Wenfry or Woopy Goldberg or any of the other race baiters. There are people like Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell and Allen West and Ben Carson and many, many more who are lessor known. It seems to me that, for black politicians like Barack Obama, the only thing that interest them about black Americans is getting their votes.
If Martin Luther King were alive today, I think he would be disgusted with our first balck predident, Barack Obama.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
