This is a very interesting and enlightening viewpoint from a successful businessman who knows a thing or two about hard work, failure and success.

His statement speaks for itself


Yesterday on Fox News Sunday, Black Entertainment Television Founder Robert Johnson made it clear he isn't pleased with President Obama's demagoguing of the rich and his efforts to attack successful people. Johnson isn't a republican or a tea party member, he's a life-long democrat.

"Attacking me is not going to convince me that I should take a bigger hit because I happen to be wealthy."

"I've tried poor and I've tried rich and I like rich better, doesn't mean I'm a bad guy."

"I didn't go into business to create a public policy success for either party, republican or democrat. I went into business to create jobs, to create opportunity, to create value for myself and my investors."

Obama does not understand this particular viewpoint at all because he has no corporate experience or any business experience whatsoever. He only knows hows how to instigate, poke, coax and provoke by means of his carefully crafted rhetoric.

Well good for him for speaking up. Unfortunately he's going to get lambasted by ATS and the main stream media because no one in their "right" mind would disagree with Obama.

He went into business to create jobs?
Just jobs, without getting more money out of them than he puts in?
Wow.... thats .... socialistic.
Good for him, and the Jobs he created, just for the heck of it, but if I was an investor I would talk to him about that ...

Yes, he wanted to create jobs for his fellow black entertainers and actors. Somewhere they could get a good start and make a jump into the business. Someplace to try new show ideas that probably wouldn't make it on the big 3 networks.

When did Obama ACTUALLY attack the rich?
I want some evidence of this, because all I've seen is extra money going to the rich via bailouts
and Obama signing off on one mega-corporate wish list after another.

So... how many people has he working for him, that don't generate more revenue than he pays them?

And what are his investors saying about that?

good for him what those schmucks who call for higher taxes

never realize and just cant seem to pound into their thick skulls it that taxation never ends up to them

what it does and has always done is put people out of work cutting their own throats and FYI when there are no more rich who do they think they are coming for next?

Them! talk the clueless leading the hopless.

Tis the hypocrisy of Obama. Better tell that to the Wall Street Protesters who are chanting for his reelection. You never know which side of his mouth Obama is going to speak from. Then his actions contradict his rhetoric. Over and Over again.

This is coming from a man who made millions profiting on the degeneration of culture, values,responsibility and social awareness of African American youth. This is coming from a man that would allow the most god awful nonsense to air on the channel and pawn it off as not only entertainment, but cultural identity.

I don't need to read a word of what that clown said. Devils come in all shapes, forms, and colors.

So it's an ultra wealthy guy defending the ultra wealthy. I don't understand what is so unusual about this. Is it significant because he's a black guy?

BINGO!

It's hip to pile on Obama right now - double if you're black.

How many people in this thread actually tune into BET regularly?

Actually, I'm just waiting to see who will be the first to call Johnson a racist. You know because Herman Cain has already been labeled a racist as well.

I haven't looked into this current craze about Herman's recent comments but... it wasn't that long ago that he publicly said he would "never hire a Muslim" so he's been a bit backward in my book for a while now.

As far as what they call Johnson, who cares? He's just a rich dude.

This would be a fantastic time to provide a specific and direct example of someone labeling Cain a racist due to his calling all African Americans "brainwashed".

Here is the deal on Cain being labeled a racist recently


GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain caused a firestorm last week for saying that African-American voters had been “brainwashed” into unfairly dismissing conservative views. Democratic political strategist Cornell Belcher, also an African-American, promptly blasted Cain’s remarks as “racist” but said that the incident was a “teachable moment.” I agree that the incident was a “teachable moment,” but my lesson plan would be vastly different from Belcher’s.

Here’s what Cain said: “African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view. I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it’s just brainwashing and people not being open minded, pure and simple.” Cain made his remarks to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer

Are you trying to say that its wrong for a business man to make a profit for himself and/or investors from the efforts of his companies employees?
