It is really sad that such a golden opportunity to improve lives in the black community was wasted under Obama. Fact sheet below shows that employment in black community is dismal and poverty is rampant. Less than half of young black men are holding full time jobs and median family worth is only $18,000.
Do you think Obama made things better with opening the borders and giving amnesty to millions of illegals? Even less young black men will be working as a result of Obama’s actions. Today 92.5 million adult Americans are not in work force and large number of them are minorities.
First and for most we have to stop Obama’s reckless open border policies which rob Americans of their jobs and lower the wages. The only ones who benefit from this, are billionaires profiteering on an un-endless supply of docile, submissive cheap foreign labor.
Second of all we need a real leadership in the black community. If I was in Obama’s place, instead of going to play golf and sun bathe in Hawaii, I would be travelling to poor black communities in Missouri, New York, Mississippi, Louisiana, Illinois and elsewhere and holding town hall meetings and talking to young people. Obama and Holder have to talk to these young people and explain that the best way to avoid any action by police, is to obey the rule of law. Michael Brown would be alive today if he did not rob a store, if he did not punch the police officer in the face and did not wrestle for his gun. Antonio Martin, who has multiple arrests for armed robbery and assaults, would be alive today, if he did not pull a gun at the police officer. Obama, who claims to be a community organizer, did not do anything to organize black community and lower black on black violence, black on black murder and increase black employment.
Today 75% of children in the inner city black community are born out of wedlock without a father at home. Statistically, these children are several time more likely to drop out of school, be unemployed and be involved in crime and incarcerated. Obama and Holder could work with these young black men, urging them to turn their lives around, get jobs, pay taxes, stay married to mothers of their children, support their kids. Obama and Holder could work with young black men, teaching them to go to job interviews, to dress appropriately for the interviews, speak appropriately, drop gang attire, drop gang slang, enroll in vocational classes. They could do so much to really change the lives of these young black men. Instead, they are using these men to wage a race war. As a result, more of these men will get killed and incarcerated. Obama is using these black men and women as a voting base. Indigent women on welfare are a Democratic party voters. Angry black men are Democratic party voters. It seems it is more important for Obama to keep these men as a voting block, rather then improving their lives. So sad!
For this reason, looking forward, we need to vote for people not based on their ethnic background, hoping that they will improve lives in their ethnic communities, but rather we should vote for people with integrity and honesty who will speak up the truth to every community and who will change lives for the better for all communities!
