Recently, Two members of the Congressional Black Congress spoke out Rep. Maxine Waters(D-CA) Went on a Rant against President Obama at a job fair in Detroit. From The Washington Examiner:
Rep. Maxine Waters said, members of the CBC are becoming increasingly tired and frustrated by Obama’s performance on the issue of jobs. Even as she expressed support for the president, Waters virtually invited the crowd to “unleash us” to pressure Obama for action.
“We don’t put pressure on the president,” Waters told the audience at Wayne County Community College. “Let me tell you why. We don’t put pressure on the president because ya’ll love the president. You love the president. You’re very proud to have a black man — first time in the history of the United States of America. If we go after the president too hard, you’re going after us.”
With African-American Unemployment over 16% Water express her frustration about the president:
“The Congressional Black Caucus loves the president too,” Waters said. “We’re supportive of the president, but we’re getting tired, y’all. We’re getting tired. And so, what we want to do is, we want to give the president every opportunity to show what he can do and what he’s prepared to lead on. We want to give him every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable. We don’t know what the strategy is. We don’t know why on this trip that he’s in the United States now, he’s not in any black community. We don’t know that.”
A few Days later in Inglewood,CA in her congressional district Waters went after the Tea Party. From the Daily Caller:
“I’m not afraid of anybody,” the California congresswoman told constituents in footage that appeared on ABC affiliate KABC in Los Angeles, not backing down from comments made about President Obama earlier in the week. “This is a tough game. You can’t be intimidated. You can’t be frightened. And as far as I’m concerned — the tea party can go straight to hell.”
A Day later Rep. Frederica Wilson(D-FL) went off at the Tea Party. Wilson blames racism for the high unemployment. From Real Clear Politics:
“When you look at African American males, 40% of them are unemployed, those under 30 years of age. I understand exactly the entire nation must be involved in this recovery but the black community is experiencing a great recession. That’s what we’re experiencing,” Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) told MSNBC.
“And all of the growth in the past 30 years, we see it slipping away. From home ownership, the middle class; it’s slipping away from our hands. And it has a lot to do with many issues. Racism, shipping jobs overseas, access — no access to technology. You know, the digital divide is there and many of the new jobs that’s what it requires. So, we have a problem.”
As a black man, It’s real easy to blame White Folks. For the last 30 years our community blamed racism starting with former President Ronald Reagan complaining about “Welfare Queens.” Some complain about government surplus cheese and food that was given out. I understand.
For Years, Black politicians get millions of dollars to improve the lives of its constitutes but it lead some on on welfare for generation. They get fund for job training programs but more often than the program is either limited in scope or size.
We as a people put race ahead of common sense. Today the Congressional Black Caucus said that They would march on the White House if the President was White. From The Hill:
Unhappy members of the Congressional Black Caucus “probably would be marching on the White House” if Obama were not president, according to CBC Chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.).
“If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House,” Cleaver told “The Miami Herald” in comments published Sunday. “There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president.”
The CBC which is representing the black community in Congress put racial pride over truth. This is disgraceful . It like was watching a ship sinking . Everyone is getting into the lifeboats except us. The black community is staying with President basically the captain going down with ship. Because he’s ours. We have to accept mediocrity from our leaders. That’s Bullshit!!!! Years ago the community would not stand by this. Now the black community is the hardest hit group in America; high unemployment in all categories. More Americans on Welfare than any time since 1993. From CNN Money.Com via Yahoo Finance:
Amid a still struggling economy, more people in America fell below the poverty line last year, according to new census data released Tuesday.
The nation’s poverty rate rose to 15.1% in 2010, its highest level since 1993. In 2009, 14.3% of people in America were living in poverty.
“The results are not surprising given the economy,” said Paul Osterman, author of “Good Jobs America,” and a labor economist at MIT. “You would expect with so many people unemployed, the poverty rate would go up. It’s just another sign of what a difficult time this is for so many people.”
About 46.2 million people are now considered in poverty, 2.6 million more than last year.
The government defines the poverty line as income of $22,314 a year for a family of four and $11,139 for an individual. The Office of Management and Budget updates the poverty line each year to account for inflation.
Middle-class wealth falls: For middle-class families, income fell in 2010. The median household income was $49,445, down slightly from $49,777 the year before.
The President wrote a check his ass can’t cash. We in the black community was looking to the Obama if he was Jesus. The bible said, “You shall no other god before me.” Were paying a price for this. His policies have failed. The man is Socialist the CBC is overwhelmingly Communist. Obama leveling of the playing field has hurt Black the most.
WAKE UP Black America if we continue on this path we’ll we will be the laughing-stock of the country . You can’t keep on blaming former President George W. Bush for Obama failures. When President was a lawyer for ACORN the corrupted Social justice group sued banks in mid 1990’s in Chicago the Country would not be in this mess. Trying to end red lining to blacks turned out be used a vehicle to demand more people in homes they could not afford. It was noble but unrealistic! The minority communities are the losers.
