5 Things President Obama Can Do To Help Black People

Black VoteIn a recent radio interview on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, President Obama summed up our sentiments regarding the material interest and progress of black people in the United States.

“When it comes to the economy, when it comes to inequality, when it comes to wealth, when it comes to the challenges that inner cities experience, he (Martin Luther King Jr.) would say that we have not made as much progress as the civil and social progress that we’ve made, and that it’s not enough just to have a black President, it’s not enough just to have a black syndicated radio show host.” 

We couldn’t agree more with the president.

In light of this sobering observation we have put together a list of five things President Obama can do to help advance the interests of black America, just as he and past presidents have advanced the welfare of other groups of Americans.

In the spirit of journalistic objectivity, we thought it would be best to put forward recommendations from known scholars, leaders, journalists, political activists and Obama allies to make the point.

    No mention of the sky-high black youth unemployment rates?
    While professing to care about the plight of the poor, Obama continues to take actions that keep blacks impoverished, so he can use black grievances for partisan political gain. In his book "Dreams From My Father", Obama wrote disdainfully about blacks who complain about being poor, yet continue to vote for Democrats — like Obama — who keep them poor. On page 147 of his book, Obama described what he and his fellow Democrats do to poor blacks as "plantation politics" when he wrote: "A plantation. Black people in the worst jobs. The worst housing. Police brutality rampant. But when the so-called black committeemen came around election time, we'd all line up and vote the straight Democratic ticket. Sell our soul for a Christmas turkey."
