President Obama _ Black America’s Best Friend or Worst Enemy?

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?

  1. Unfortunately blacks will always support blacks politicians and leaders. Sadly the entire black identity is based on being helpless, oppressed and racially aggrieved. If they lose that they lose their entire identity. Hence the hatred they feel towards successful, middle-class blacks. They have “betrayed” their race by adopting white values,

  2. I would contend the first black president hasn’t been good for anyone,much less blacks in America. I believe the facts should speak for themselves.

  3. You nailed it Jim! Barack Obama apparently believes that blacks cannot make it on their own and need government assistance. How offensive is that position? He is using the blacks to push his agenda and he really doesn’t give a damn about them, only about expanding the government.

    1. Wasn’t it Holder that recently said, during all the kerfuffle surrounding voter ID laws, that some minorities were too ignorant to get an ID and that those laws should be struck down?

    2. Steve, it is not only the Feds that are the problem. The states run by Democrats, especially, give out all the free stuff. The LINK card (food stamps) is a big fraud maker in my state of Illinois. It was supposed to be less demeaning for someone to use in place of the food stamps, one swipe and the food is paid for. At the beginning of the month, money is deposited on that card and it is so easy to use and to abuse. I don’t know how many times, when I am in line at the store, the person with that LINK card has more and better food than I am buying and I am PAYING for it. Where is the justice there? I would never begrudge anyone that actually needs the help, but there are generation after generation that go on the dole here in Illinois that are perfectly healthy and could get a job, however they get too many freebies and they make more by sitting home. All we get out of it is higher taxes and less of what we can buy for ourselves. Section 8 is an entirely different story, if your parents or parent have/has a Section 8 voucher, the kids when they come of age are eligible for the same free or almost free rent. They are so proud of getting out on their “own” at our expense. When I came of age, I was eligible to go out and get a job and pay for a place to stay…see an difference there? So, where is the incentive to work, ever???

  4. Of the many blacks whom I know personally, every one of the them — previously supporters of Alan Keyes — support Obama even now.

    Delusion runs skin deep and beyond — apparently according to skin color. **sigh**

  5. MLK would not approve of the directions civil rights has moved. Minorities are being re-enslaved to the state, by race baiting politicians who preach victimization and make their living convincing people they are weak. MLK was for strength. He knew that if people WERE judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin, everything would be fine because he believed deeply that blacks were strong, smart, and had character. There is nothing they can’t achieve. But the message quickly turned into something so vile that civil rights leaders say things like something as simple as showing identification is too much of a hurdle for African Americans and other minorities to cross in order to vote. They are not capable of handling the task of procuring ID… even if it’s free and people are there to help them.

    If I were black, I would be absolutely insulted by the way liberal democrats talk about race. I’m insulted on behalf of my black friends (a couple, by the way, in which the husband is a heart surgeon and the wife is a nurse). Someone forgot to tell them that they were part of a race so inept that test scores had to be lowered to accommodate them, and that they were probably incapable of getting ID in order to vote. Instead, they rose to the top of their respective fields. They listened to the message of MLK. The Dems want them to listen to the message of Al Sharpton.

  6. I think MLK would be disgusted, too.
    They (liberal progressives–all colors of rainbow) have to push class warfare and race warfare in order to push social programs as something one “deserves” in order to create dependence in order to create party loyalty for progressives who will “protect” social programs against all other parties who wish to “punish” the poor by making them work a few hours for what they had been getting for free.
    Quite simple, really.

  7. If there was a $100.00 bonus incentive to get one’s black ass down to Voter Registration Central the line there would be around the block with those in wheelchairs and on crutches pushed to the front of the line.
