Blacks are now crying about illegal immigration and Obama. As a black man, this makes me laugh. People like Cornell West and Tavis Smiley have been
complaining about Obama and they're called Uncle Tom's by Democrat House Negroes like Al Sharpton and the shucking and jiving Steve Harvey.
No sooner did President Barack Obama and a group of senators separately outline proposals to revamp the nation’s immigration system than the
phone lines on several African-American-oriented talk radio shows heated up with callers blasting the plans.
“Amnesty,” complained Frankie from Maryland recently on the nationally syndicated “Keeping it Real with Al Sharpton.”
A political payback to Hispanic voters that does little or nothing for African-Americans, reasoned Sam from Milwaukee on Wisconsin’s 1290 WMCS
AM’s “Earl Ingram Show.”
“Our issues are not being highlighted and pushed, and things like gay marriage and (immigration) are being pushed to the forefront,” the caller
said. “Hispanics are effectively organized. For us not to be organized and for us not to hold our leadership accountable is
First I have to LAUGH that Al Sharpton has a radio show called Keeping it Real. Talk about an oxymoron.
OF COURSE Obama is pushing for Gay Marriage and Illegal Immigration Reform. This is because the Gay Community and the Hispanic Community have
political power. The Democrats are turning Hispanics into the black community and they look like their succeeding.
When the Gay community threatened to not support Obama, he became the first Gay President. The Hispanic community threatened to walk and they get
Personally, I think illegals need a pathway to citizenship but the Borders need to be controlled first. This highlights an important point though.
Obama is just a CHICAGO POLITICIAN.
He doesn't walk on water, he falls in and has to swim just like the rest of us.
BLACKS ARE SLAVES TO THE DEMOCRAT PARTY!
This sickens me because this means our community doesn't have any power. This is why Obama doesn't show up to the NAACP. There's no benefit for
Democrat Politicians doing anything for the black community. When they have 90% or more of our vote they don't have to use any political capital to
do anything for the community. What liberals have done is turn black communities into war zones with abortion, welfare and other government handouts.
So any time the black community gets upset, the democrats send out Sharpton or Jesse Jackson to go to black Churches and round up the Negroes.
Some angst over Obama addressing immigration and other issues so soon in his second term has boiled over into public criticism of the nation’s
first African-American president by many African-Americans, from the grassroots to the political levels.
Bernard Anderson, an Obama supporter and a former assistant labor secretary during Bill Clinton’s presidency, recently told an African-American
economic summit at Washington’s Howard University that African-Americans should no longer give Obama “a pass” on dealing with issues that
directly impact their community.
“He is not going to run again for anything. He does not deserve a pass anymore,” Anderson said. “Let him not only find his voice but summon his
courage and use his political capital to address racial inequality. He owes that to the African-American.”
Some members of the Congressional Black Caucus are quietly seething because Obama hasn’t met with the 42-member group since May 13, 2011. Rep. Alcee
Hastings, D-Fla., vented to the National Newspaper Publishers Association last month. He said the black caucus sent the White House the names of 61
potential candidates for positions in a second-term administration that already is coming under fire for being heavy on white males.
ARE YOU CRAZY?? WHY DO WE NEED TO DO ANYTHING WHEN YOU WALK IN LOCKSTEP BEHIND THE DEMOCRAT PARTY?
Again, Politicians only "care" if they have to earn your vote. If we were smart, we would vote Republican. Not because we agree with Republican but
because both sides are a facsimile of corruption. The Republicans would bend over backwards for 20-30% of the black vote. It's about removing
idealism when it comes to Politicians and living in the real world.
“I would say a bulk of my listenership is anti-immigration,” he said. “You have to understand that in the community in which I live the
percentage of African-Americans who are unemployed. They look at what’s going on with immigration as an affront to African-Americans who can’t pay
their mortgages because many of the immigrants come here, they are hired at less than minimum wage.”
The African-American unemployment rate is at 13.8 percent, according to recently released government figures, nearly twice the 7 percent jobless rate
for whites. The nation’s overall unemployment rate is 7.9 percent. For Hispanics, the rate is 9.7 percent.
A 2009 study by George Borjas of Harvard University, Jeffrey Grogger of the University of Chicago and George Hanson of the University of California,
San Diego, looked at 1960-2000 Census data and found that as immigrants disproportionately increased the supply of workers in a particular area, wages
of African-American workers in that area fell, the employment rate declined and the incarceration rate rose.
“Our analysis suggests that a 10 percent immigration-induced increase in the supply of a particular skill group reduced the black wage by 2.5
percent, lowered the employment rate of black men by 5.9 percentage points, and increased the incarceration rate of blacks by 1.3 percentage
points,” the professors wrote in the study.
This is about education and how the Democrats keep blacks locked into public schools where Teachers are more worried about their Pension rather than
teaching you basic skills. Blacks should support a strong Voucher system in poor black neighborhoods. Go to the Republicans and I guarantee blacks
will be in a New Conference with John Boehner faster than their head could spin.
Blacks have to be smart and we have to play both sides or we will just continue to complain for crumbs of the Democrats table.
