Addressing the Congressional Black Caucus gala for the last time as president, Obama warned that while his name would not be on the ballot in November, all of the progress that the country has made over the last eight years was on the line.

"If I hear anybody saying their vote does not matter, that it doesn't matter who we elect -- read up on your history. It matters. We've got to get people to vote," Obama said. "I will consider it a personal insult -- an insult to my legacy -- if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election. You want to give me a good sendoff? Go vote."

The speech discussed above apparently happened almost concurrently with the speech discussed in the following article.


Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tied herself to President Barack Obama’s legacy, saying Republican Donald Trump was unfit to follow in the footsteps of the man she once ran a hard-fought campaign against.

Speaking to a predominantly black audience at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation gala in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, Mrs. Clinton said this year’s election “comes down to who will fight for the forgotten, who will invest in our children and who will really have your back in the White House.”

You can see how much Clinton is bending over backwards for the black vote with her use of the phrase, "have your back in the White House." That sounds like Ebonics lite to me. It brings a horrific image to my mind of Clinton stabbing me in the back. That's the only thing I can imagine her doing if she had my back.

My advice to Clinton is to take a page out of Obama's playbook...one word...Clintonphone.

It's nice that we don't have a president who judges people based on their skin color....

people who expect other people of certain colors to act a certain way,,what do we call those people, people like Obama....

Your external quote says that he said, "Go vote."
Did you miss pasting the part that said "for Hillary?" Maybe you want to include it, since, well, that's what your headline says that he said.

His legecy is an insult to the voters of this country who put him in a position he had no business being in .
His legacy is a being seen as a president who forced people to get insurance or get "taxed " widened the racial divide, made the middle east a bigger mess than it has ever been, had a crooked secretary of state with no oversight. And the list goes on. But he gave people cell phones so that will probably be his legacy.

Obama has already insulted the entire black race by breaking ALL of his promises to them. Turnabout isn't just fair play, it is warranted. Obama is an outcast and should be excommunicated by all blacks. (Whites too) (Chronic liar, low ethics, traitor etc.)

Add: He paid lip service to being against the War On Drugs (which IS systematic oppression of the black community), yet did every bit as much to embolden it as he did to undo it.

S&F

Race race race! He's a racist throwing the race card. They should burn his effigies for this.

The Democrat's don't care about anybody any more than the Republican's.

I loathe both parties BTW.

Victims of the war on drugs, or victims of drugs?

Before he was "elected" I was on record saying I was opposed to him because he was more or less a Bush 2.0 (who already vowed to pardon Bush for his crimes [which he did]).

But I was like hey at least the blacks should be a lot happier when all is said and done.

I was right about one thing; dead wrong about the other.

I'd say both.By the judicial system and the price paid by Heroin ODS in the ghettos.

I see a bunch of words. Gish galloping.
Not much data.

And, regarding the OP. I don't see where Obama said what the headline claims.

Dude to soon. Look at the world around you, it's only natural to bring up when you were screwed over by people's ancestors.


1. The war of Judaism against Germany.

2. Ongoing war of Native Americans, Japanese, Nicaraguans, Panamanian, add any if I missed against America.

3. America against Germany.

4. America against Japan.

5. America against Britain.


I apologize for my statement, I don't favor any sides. People do bad things no matter where they are from. But I hate the narrative as dependents we hold things against the dependents of our far kin.

What makes you think that's the first time I saw your thread?
But yeah, I'm a fast reader. Always have been.

The bummer is, I finish books too quick.

There is an African American lady I know who is driving with a spare (donut) tire, because she can't afford a new one. But she is a staunch Obama (and now Hillary) supporter. Doesn't make sense, but I don't discuss this obvious "disconnect" with her. If Stella feels that Obama and Hillary "has her back" while she drives around on a donut, there's nothing I could say to convince her otherwise.
