As a black man, I see an article like this as a wake up call. The African American community simply worships Obama and things have gotten worse with
him as President. This is not just a problem with Obama because the African American community are simply owned by the Democrat party. At the end of
the day greedy Politicians in both parties are worthless. So when you walk in lock step with the Democrats blindly, you will just be an after
Hispanics need to be weary because the Democrats are trying to turn them into the African American Community. Hispanics have some power now because
these Politicians only do something if their seat is threatened. So Obama jumps for Hispanics and when the Gay community threatened take support away
from him he got behind Gay marriage.
Blacks are seen as irrelevant because they're going to vote over 90% for the Democrat no matter what. As soon as Blacks start to complain, the
Democrats send out Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to black Churches to round up the Negroes. Here's more:
1. Black misery has been growing since 2009 under President Obama’s economic and job creation policies. Black folks participation in the labor
market has been steadily moving DOWNWARD during the Obama presidency – since 2009 when he was first inaugurated.
The rate of UNDER-employment for Hispanic Americans has DROPPED from 15% in 2009 to 12% at the end of 2012. This represents an improvement of about
The rate of UNDER-employment for White Americans has DROPPED from 10% in 2009 to 8% at the end of 2012. This represents an improvement of about
The rate of UNDER-employment for Asian Americans has DROPPED from 8% in 2009 to 6% at the end of 2012. This represents an improvement of about 25%.
But the picture for Black Americans is in the opposite direction. The rate of UNDER-employment for Blacks has INCREASED from 16% in 2009 to 20% at the
end of 2012. This represents a 25% WORSENING in the rate of Black underemployment during Obama’s first term in office from 2009 through
It's not so much that Obama has to DO something special for Blacks, it's that Obama's policies are hurting the middle class and poor and decimating
This is because Obama is about Redistribution of Wealth. HE TAKES FROM THE POOR AND MIDDLE CLASS AND GIVES IT TO THE WEALTHY.
All the talk about Obama punishing the rich is nonsense. Obama has made the rich richer and the poor, poorer.
Income inequality has increased under Obama. Corporate profits are at historic highs while middle incomes are dropping. The Fed under Obama is
flooding multi-nationals with cheap dollars that they invest in emerging markets overseas.
Importantly, all the other racial groups whose members have similar education levels as Blacks are still doing better from Obama’s policies.
Rather, the main the reason for this recent downward spiral in Black underemployment rates seems to be the lack of attention to employment in urban
and rural geographic areas where Blacks reside. At the same time, as reported by Think Progress, “Corporations have been the overwhelming
beneficiaries of Obama’s policies. Over 88% of all the dollars obtained between 2009 and 2011, 88% of national income growth, went to corporate
profits, while just 1% went to wages.”
There's many problems with Obama policies and here's 2. Education and illegal immigration.
Vouchers help black children who attend some of the worst schools in the Country.
A new report from the Brookings Institution finds that school vouchers have a significant impact on the college enrollment rates of African
Americans. The study tracked elementary school students who were offered tuition vouchers for private schools from the New York School Choice
Scholarships Foundation. Overall, the study found that students who were part of the voucher program did not go on to enroll in college at a greater
rate than students as whole. But the results showed that African American students who went to private or parochial schools under the voucher program
were 24 percent more likely to enroll in college. And Black students who benefited from vouchers were twice as likely as other students to enroll in
highly selective colleges and universities.
So overall, there wasn't much change but with blacks they were 24% more likely to enroll in College.
A 2009 study shows that illegal immigration hurts blacks.
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.
At the end of the day blacks should play both sides because both parties are corrupt. Go to the G.O.P. and get them to move on vouchers and more
border security and there will be a push for more votes for the G.O.P.
The BIG LIE that Democrats are helpful to blacks needs to stop. Clinton was great for the economy and I supported him but Obama is horrible for blacks
and the economy as a whole so I supported Romney. Blacks need to realize these crooked Politicians only understand a NO VOTE and it isn't good when
you walk in lock step with either side. Here's one last quote.
“An Obamapologist is someone who actively looks for every excuse under the sun to explain away questionable and harmful behavior that
president Barack Obama does.”
