Obama: 'I'm not the president of black America'

Maybe slightly out of context, but maybe not either.

He made the statement during an interview with 'Black Enterprise magazine'

The question was:

How do you respond to criticism that your administration hasn’t done enough to support black businesses?

The Obama response:

My general view has been consistent throughout, which is that I want all businesses to succeed. I want all Americans to have opportunity. I’m not the president of black America. I’m the president of the United States of America, but the programs that we have put in place have been directed at those folks who are least able to get financing through conventional means, who have been in the past locked out of opportunities that were available to everybody. So, I’ll put my track record up against anybody in terms of us putting in place broad-based programs that ultimately had a huge benefit for African American businesses.



Obama continues....... link to the magazine's story.

His response was the right one. He is the president of all Americans not just Americans of one race.

Since this is doomed to die, due to being "case closed", what about those who insist on seeing him as he POTUS of only the blacks?

Yeah Mr. Obama, you did a fantastic job getting those "poor" people who couldn't get a loan conventionally......42% interest isn't helping people out......

Obama doesn't run the banks or the federal reserve so you can't blame interest rates on him. And please point out how he's destroying America from the ground up?
