6 thoughts on “Trump Completely Rips Obama for Lack of Action to Help the African-American Community— But Is He Right?

  1. Placing my dislike of Trump aside, he's correct. No other minority or Person of color in President Obama position would allow their group economically decline as President Obama has for American Black citizens . Contrary to the "he needs Congress" meme which is a lie, President Obama has not used the Presidential bully pulpit to speak about adult Black men (mainly) unemployed in massive numbers. It's not good for our race or our country. The President has no problem speaking about women issues, gays and illegal aliens but he remains silent about the issues facing Black Americans. I know some will say "we must help ourselves" but the same folks have not told folks if they entered America Legally they wouldn't be facing deportation either. As Malcolm X said :

    But it does make the black people in this country who are jobless and unemployed and standing in the welfare line very much discouraged to see a government that can't solve our problem, can't provide job opportunities for us, and at the some time not only Cubans but Hungarians and every other type of white refugee imaginable can come to this country and get everything this government has to offer."

    "Why Is the Black Unemployment Rate So High?

    "It's not just that a greater share of African Americans are out of work. It's also that they continue to seek jobs for longer than whites do."

    During President Obama's two terms in office all the sheets came off the bigots, racists and lets face it folks the LGBT community will not give black men a break either. I view it as a couple of things that held this President back from doing a better job for the black community, and one was a lack of courage to push back hard through executive order the hiring of minority contractors in Government Jobs, secondly there was just a flat out overt practice of discrimenation in hiring on all levels of the economy which is why the rate is up so high and President Obama did not have a good grip on this practice or lack thereof. Now look we as Black folk are going to have to take back our shit that has been taken away these past years by any means necessary. Maybe we should open carry at malls and shopping centers close to our communities and scare away all the white kids and managers that they brought in to serve our community and get those jobs back that were rightfullty ours to begin with. 3rd we need to stop praying and marching and hoping the white man will give something to us. Hell, we were marching and praying to God 50 years ago and a damn thing has not changed! Not one bit. And finally we need to start spending out money with our own businesses or ran by us and stop giving all that damn money to the church on Sunday becaue that money leaves the community and never comes back in form of jobs, loans, educational grants and here is one, if we are donating to the Churches to the tune of hundreds and millions of dollars we need to take that money and start bailing out of jail our incarcerated youth and men and get them on the road to rehabilitation so that they can give back to the communites that we all love and enjoy. Thank you for reading and I am not going to ask for a Amen or a repost of this, I just want you to share…goodnight my brothers and sisters.

    Here's another perspective: Just think how bad things might be had we not prayed.

    Don't knock prayer. Because of prayer, the world, not just this country, is on the prescipice of a New Age.

    Change is coming. Martin Luther King saw the change and called it the "Promised Land," which he said that blacks would attain, but not him.

    "Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead. But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop. And I don't mind. Like anybody, I would like to live – a long life; longevity has its place. But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will. And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the Promised Land. So I'm happy, tonight. I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord."
