I don't think race has much to do with it...
I hate Obama and would gladly have voted for Powell
I think almost all Black politicians that have run have been from the socialist, life's unfair ultra liberal side of life... I don't like what many
Black political leaders including Obama would do to the Black community
Far from racist, I think he will be exceptionally bad for Black America, that socialist policies will hold more Black Americans down than ever lift
I think the guy type casts Black people as..Poor, challenged and incapable by the kind of programs he wishes to enact...
I think the guy has already done more to divide race in America than we have been at anytie in the last 40 years by opening up old wounds from when he
was a child and continuing to paint regular Good Black people as some special interest group that needs some kind of help... all the guy does is
affirm feelings of oppresion and racial strife where really most people no longer have very many true race issues
his playing of the race card through this is perhaps alienating white people, but maybe for good reason, he is opening up a can of worms America has
made great strides in closing just to get elected and creating a divide.
It's all change and US vs THEM from this guy and it's bad for America
and his tax plan and etc...will help poor Black Americans a tiny little bit...a few hundred bucks a year... while Black Americans who made it out of
the hood and do well...are going to be kicked back down or find that "escape velocity" is alot harder to reach
I'm sorry, the rich float the countries funds.. and there are lots opf Well to do Black Americans who if they vote for this guy may find themselves
back where they started and I believe in rewarding success not failure
The biggest joke of Obama is that... as a person he is basically a Rich White Conservative to judge by his own life and behavior but he has Black
By playing the race card, like he has anything in common with them anymore or has thier best interests at heart
He is an elitist in his own way and he wil use the poor to be elected and dump them like any other politician.
Not one of his policies says anything about how his "community" goes from Poor... to upowardly mobile...
It's all the crap people in the ghetto want to here... bs lies , savings of a few hundred bucks at national expenses, better schools lol..as if the
govt will change a society where kids parents don't educate them...
He offers the Black community nothing and frankly I'd just be happier with a president that aids upwardly mobile Black Americans that set an example
as oppossed to offering the ghetto more govt cheese...
He practicesw typical..."keep the poor in thier place" politics... and offers nothing that will actually alter thier lives in any meaningful way
