The Obama divide in the Black community.

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

(ThyBlackMan.com) Some people believe that President Barack Obama has done nothing for the African American community and that he just flat out ignores his own people. But the other side of the argument is that we as a people have become too dependent upon our commander in chief. Now before I begin both sides make a compelling argument and I agree with both sides which I will begin to explain.

Members of the Black community feel that President Barack Obama owes them more economic employment, a swift decision on gun violence and a larger investment in education. Some members of the Black community such as Tavis Smiley and Dr. Cornel West have been highly critical of President BarackObama-campaigning-in-the-Black-community Obama’s response to the staggering figures when it comes to the ridiculously high unemployment rate for Blacks.

For some part I can understand why African-Americans feel that our president is obligated to give us a helping hand. I mean if it wasn’t for our 96% of the African-American vote back in 2008 then Barrack Obama wouldn’t have become our first African-American president. Also if it wasn’t for our devotion and time to standing on those long and ridiculous lines waiting to vote as our voting rights were being attacked by republicans then President Obama would’ve became a one term president. So yes I can understand where some of you are coming from.

Now me personally I have an issue with the fact that gun violence has been going on in his home town of Chicago and he has yet to visit the countless families that have lost their children to senseless violence. But he has the quickness to call a press conference and cry for those kids in Sandy Hook who were murdered which could back on some of you who say Obama doesn’t care about Black people.

Now on the other hand you have people who say that President Obama is doing the best that he can and that we as a people have to do our part. Now I can definitely agree with this far too many times we expect people to just lead us to success rather than helping each other. We also need to pick our own slack, raise our own kids, support and create our own businesses and be passionate about black on black crime the same way we are about Trayvon Martin or Jordan Davis.

Also think about this for a moment President Obama doesn’t have the power to overthrow congress in other words congress can veto any bill that he presents which has happened since he stepped foot in office. Also so many people bring up problems but I never see anyone post up solutions. I feel that we should hold our president accountable to his promises but we should also hold ourselves accountable for our communities…..

    From The CBC to radio programs that indoctrinate our youth, Obama is shoved down our throat and we’re not expected to make any demands on the The White House while Obama advances his family”s best interests at the expense of our community, GTFOH!


    African Americans have given up on reading, and African American politicians dare to support a sitting black U.S. president out of fear of being called a ni@#er lover by white politicians.

    The New York Times refers to Barack Obama as the last black politician. White journalist asks each other out loud, “What’s going with progression, evolution and rehabilitation in the black community”?

    The reply is nothing happening in the black community. There is no movement of progression, evolution and rehabilitation in the black community.

    Unless a African American is speaking out loud complaining about the first black president then it is like Christmas Eve in the black community whereas….

    “all throughout the house, no creatures were stirring, not even a mouse. The black folks cowered on the plantation with despair hoping soon that the white people will be there.”

    By and by someone told the African Americans that reading books is the way to freedom, prosperity, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness but the African Americans replied from their actions that…

    .”If waiting for the white people to come is wrong then I don’t want to be right because ain’t no book gonna save me!”

    …And so the white people came

    White people came and joined the African Americans in their civil rights struggle. White people did not have to support the African American struggle but they had respect for blacks that had the courage to stand up for the ideals, symbolism and dignity of the Red, Green and Black flag.

    White people came to Africa to help with the black struggle. White people came into the inner city neighborhoods and schools to help teach African American children.

    The white people came and built housing to keep African Americans in their communities. The white people came and built banks so that African Americans can save money ………. but the African Americans will have none of it.

    Instead of civil rights, schools, Affordable housing, bank loans and libraries African Americans want President Obama to find or create for them a job or opportunity. African Americans want unlimited unemployment extensions and affordable housing only in white areas.

    African Americans want banks to make it easy and affordable through no interest charity loans to be able to shop in the white areas and eat in white restaurants.

    African Americas protest and keep their children out of African American schools because they want to raise and educate their children alongside white people’s children.

    It is not enough that the white people came into the African American inner city neighborhoods and areas bringing with them the avenues of opportunity for African Americans to do for self.

    Doing for self means supporting their own black businesses and reading how to books. African Americans treat reading books like weapons of mass destruction and supporting black business is a waste of time because African Americans don’t read enough to know the infinite benefits of supporting their own enterprises.

    …so the African Americans wait for the white people to come again.

    The white people came again but this time they showed up with high powered rifles to shoot and kill any black person trying to escape uptown during the Katrina hurricane.

    The white people came on cruise ships to Haiti during the earthquake to swim, have sex, sip wine, eat caviar and drink champagne from their lavish cruise ships as they watched, pointed and rejoiced at the black dead bodies laying crushed, decapitated, mangled and twisted in the streets of Haiti.

    The white people came back into the inner city neighborhoods and areas to shut down your schools, cut off your welfare and suspend private funding. The white people came and left taking with them their magnanimous gestures of African American opportunities and on the way out they let the Spanish players in.

    … and the Spanish players don’t take prisoners.

    The Spanish players as of this writing have the African Americans surrounded and engulfed as they cut off and deplete the African Americans residual resources of land, food and water.

    The African Americans sit idly by on the 21st century plantation watching their own destruction, demise, elimination, defeat and extinction hoping in their hearts that it will only happen to the other African American family and not them.

    When African Americans are asked about their condition and as long as African Americans refuse to open up and read a book then..….

    …It is all Barack Obama’s fault.

    I agree with you Terrence but I just feel that if we invest in someone we should get something back in return but on the other hand I feel as if we should depend on ourselves.

  4. I have a solution and it involves doing for ourselves and holding elected officials accountable. Just click on my name for more information.
