Is Obama Good for Black Americans?



By Mona Charen - August 23, 2013

==================================================

quote:

Buried in a New York Times story about the economy was this arresting statistic: Median family income for black Americans has declined a whopping 10.9 percent during the Obama administration. It has declined for other groups as well -- 3.6 percent for non-Hispanic whites and 4.5 percent for Hispanics - but the figure for blacks is huge. This decline does not include losses suffered during the financial crisis and the recession that followed, but it instead measures declines since June 2009, when the recession officially ended.

That's not the only bad news for African-Americans. The poverty rate for blacks is now 25.8 percent. The black labor force participation rate, which rose throughout the 1980s and 1990s, has declined for the past decade and quite sharply under Obama to 61.4 percent. The black unemployment rate, according to Pew Research, stands at 13.4 percent. Among black, male, high school dropouts, PBS' Paul Salmon reports, the unemployment rate is a staggering 95 percent.

He is turrible for Black Americans. Just turrible.

Why couldn't we have got Mitt Romney dammit. Or John McCain.

shite

Then again, had he passed an EO forcing everyone to hand over their income to Black Americans, would you be interested in whether he was good for us?

The answer is no. Most probably don't care what he does in the White House. The fact that he looks like them is probably enough satisfaction.

Your obvious sarcasm does not address the facts. And while I had/have no confidence in McCain, Romney is a proven successful business man and I am confident that he was and still is more capable of improving the overall economy than Obama ever will be.

Instead of implementing measures that would encourage investment and job creation, Obama and the Dems have:
1. Used negative rhetoric against big business.
2. Divided our people with racist stances on issues that are best decided by our court system.
3. Illegal passage of Obamacare which has already had a huge negative impact on employment and business investment.
4. Focus on inefficient/not ready for prime time green energy investment through crony capitalism while marginalizing proven natural resources here at home.
5. Skyrocketing debt that forced the ratings agencies to lower the U.S. debt rating for the first time in history.
6. A disastrous foreign policy that seems to support Islamic radicals, has increased instability in the Middle East keeping oil prices high in spite of ample supplies.

The list goes on but basically Obama has been pretty much what I expected: a liberal President who has not been good for our economy or America in general.

Since Obama has made it so clear that he wants to advance Blacks in America it will be interesting at the end of his tenure to compare statistics for black people and see how he did.

Is Obama good for Americans is the real question......... and the answer is obviously no.

Pandering to mere 14% of the population is meaningless relative to the country.

Seriously. This board is starting to read like a Grisham novel set in Mississippi in the 50's.

Of course he has been horrible for Blacks and everybody else as well. The only real way to fight poverty and unemployment is to encourage job growth in the private sector. This administration has done the opposite.

He's very good for himself, his friends like Jackson, Holder, Sharpton and all his union buddies.
