Obama urges black community to 'march with me' (Whites need not apply)
cnn ^ | September 24, 2011 | By Athena Jones

Posted on 09/25/2011 5:22:18 AM PDT by tobyhill

While acknowledging the hard-hit black community and budding criticisms in its ranks, President Barack Obama said in a speech Saturday night to the Congressional Black Caucus that he wouldn't give up -- and urged members of the black community to join him to jump-start the still-sluggish economy.

"I expect all of you to march with me, and press on," Obama said. "... Stop complaining, stop grumbling, stop crying. We are going to press on. We've got work to do."

The unemployment rate among African-Americans is 16.7%, nearly double the national average, while 40% of black children live in poverty. Such facts have made fiscal reforms a priority for caucus members, some of whom -- most of them Democrats -- have criticized Obama for not doing enough on the issue.

They include Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, who at a caucus "jobs' tour town hall" in Detroit this month described the unemployment rate among blacks "unconscionable." She said the strategy to fix it was unclear, adding that the caucus was "getting tired" of waiting for one.

She questioned the president's decision to focus on the Midwest during a three-day jobs bus tour in August, stating that the 3 million who live in Iowa -- and are mostly white -- are roughly equal in number to the African-Americans who are out of work. She suggested that Obama's administration seemed more keen to focus on that politically important state than on the black community.

"Are the unemployed in the African-American community, including almost 45% of its youth, as important as the people of Iowa?" she asked in the statement she released ahead of the president's speech before a joint session of Congress in which he announced his jobs plan.

We saw who he was early on. His mask has slipped off for most independents. The further he falls in the polls,the more desparate they will become. I think this is going to be ugly folks. As for me, I am going to work for the candidate who will judge people by the content of their character and not the color of their skin. Go CAIN!!

First they came for the Jews. Then they came for the gypses. Then they came for you. I wish our black brothers and sisters would see through all this. They are pawns in a chess game. There is no school choice. Why? This would have which gotten them out of the second slavery (welfare). Do they know who started planned parenthood (Sanger) and why? The original intent was to essentially reduce the black population. Do they know the dem majority voted AGAINST the civil rights act. My hero’s are Schindler Tubman Churchill. They all fought for freedom. I can only prayer for our country and that someday Jackson and sharpton and their ilk fade unto history and MLK’s words become a reality.

The biggest thing I heard was that fake ‘preachifying’ tone he gets to his speeches when he’s speaking to blacks.

But his WORST line was: “Take your bedroom slippers off”????????? How demeaning is that??? If a white candidate had used those words, there would be Hell to pay.

Yes, it was demeaning, but he is effectively trying to incite RIOTS. Just more of that civility he was preaching about after Gabby Giffords was shot.

The black community is already calling him an “Uncle Tom” but unlike Obama, he actually did create jobs. He also actually ran a business unlike Obama.

If Waters finds the black unemployment rate unconscionable she should first check her own conscience. I know mine is clear.

To me, my opposition to Obama has nothing to do with race. It has always been about his destructive policies and political ideology which I find repugnant.

However, this charlatan race-baiter, who fooled all the stupid white liberals, just like one of his most ardent supporters and fellow Rev. Wright congregation members, Oprah, and has successfully disguised his vile racism and self-hatred from people who wish to remain blissfully ignorant. It's truly sad how our President, who has been afforded all the advantages that his affluent white half of the family could bestow upon him, can now harbor such ill will towards the melanin-lacking component within him. A psychologist could make a handsome salary trying to resolve Obama's internal demons.

I agree with you.

We also shouldn’t have race divided groups in the police and firefighter departments in the larger cities.

The Congressional Black Caucus is truly a bunch of corrupt, racist, wedge dividing, tit suckling, nimrods and they ARE dangerous.

Calling a man an Uncle Tom is such an ugly, demeaning and racist thing. What it comes down to is that the man is educated, hardworking, decent and successful. It says that the qualities and behavior necessary for a happy, successful and prosperous life are white. Sounds like something the Klan would say

330,000 northern whites were instrumental in freeing the slaves and I have yet to hear or read a statement by any liberal Negro giving thanks for the sacrifices of these men, their families and decendents. The Negro community has had ample opportunity to do so during Black History Month, Martin Luther King Day, Emancipation Day OR just any day of the years since 1865! All I hear are call for Reparations from the Negro community...apparently recognition of the deaths, wounded and suffering for the white Union soldiers, their families and posterity, who had nothing to do with Negro Slave trade is not enough!
I refrain from commenting on the Confederate deaths and suffering.

He ignored the blacks up until now. He knows they are a secure voting block no matter how badly the democrats treat them. Unfortunately, some are considering leaving the democrat plantation for greener pastors. The left never, ever, can allow that to happen. Unless they keep the blacks poor, dumbed down, and trapped in inner city cages, they'll never win another election.

He is still trying to be the only successful thing he has ever done, community organizer. No clue on poverty; he was more than well off. No clue on being black; he was raised in a white household. No clue on being an average American; his mother was a radical, his father a radical from what I can gather, his stepfather wholly supportive of his early radical education, all his acquaintances from teen years forward were radicals, socialists, Marxists, America hatrers ( he identified them in his book). No clue about American exceptionalism; sees problem with a Constitution that limits government. No clue about Justice or Truth; he's a lawyer. No clue about business; he never started or ran one, successful or unsuccessful.

So there you have it. A totally clueless POTUS addressing a constituency of clueless parasites, scolding them like little children (”Stop complaining”). This tells me he is spineless to criticism.

They got what they wanted an Lo and behold, he has not given them their wants. Not their needs, mind you, but their wants. He did not write them all a big honking reparations check or make it where they could live for free in houses they never could pay for or be declared exempt from all responsibility for their own livelihoods. The truly, truly sad part is that the welfare mentality (once a badge of dishonor) was displayed on TV and not only developed into a way of existence but then became a magnet for illegal immigrants expecting the same free ride.

Until Thug-In-Chief Obama does something to create a business-friendly America, no one's situation in life here will improve. Blacks that still support this phony deserve to live in poverty on the Democrat plantation.

A psychologist could make a handsome salary trying to resolve Obama's internal demons.

Here's one who took a stab at it.....

Because Obama will not change. He will not learn from his mistakes. He will not grow and mature from on-the-job experience. In fact, over time, Obama will likely become a more ferocious version of who he is today.

Why? Because this is a damaged person. Obama's fate was sealed years ago growing up in his strange and poisonous family. Later on, his empty vessel was filled with the hateful bile of men like Rev. Wright and Bill Ayers.

Obama will not evolve; he will not rise to the occasion; he will not become the man he was meant to be. This is for one reason and one reason alone.

He is not capable of it.

In August, 2006 under a GOP President and Congress, black unemployment was 9.5 percent, and that was "its highest level since November 2005". So much for Democrat change.

Interesting. It seems that the Civil War had several purposes. Lincoln said many times it was to preserve the Union. Many in the South felt it was States Rights and econiomics. Slave trading was made illegal in the United States in 1808 and we were well on the way to abolishing it here. So there is no “single” reason in my mind. I feel the comment about the Confederate losses comes from a limited view of history. Or not.

Barrack Hussein Obama is a perfect example of what you get with an Affirmative Action hire.

Unqualified, incompetent,late for work (Always late at his speech’s) and all they want is more vacation time.

At the first sign of people complaining of their work they scream racism.

Racist liberals need to have certain facts shoved down their collective throats... 1) I didn’t vote for oblidiot because he is black, but because he is a socialist. 2) I support Herman Cain because he is a solid conservative, has real world experience and success, and the man can add 2+2 and come up with 4 instead of -14$ trillion. Liberals just do not get that stupid has no color and you can’t fix stupid any more than you can polish a t*rd. But you sure can affirmative action it to the top of the bowl... but its still a t*rd.

What he really needs to do is, start talking about dress code among the “community”. Sort of like what a lot of other “African-American” notables are now unafraid to talk about, i.e. for example “pull your pants up isn’t a metaphor anymore - PLEASE, can you pull your pants up and get ready for a job?” (not my quote) ...

The reasons for the Civil War is seperate but linked.
The South felt they had the right to have slaves. They also felt the fed government had no say in what states did.
Also the South felt they were getting the short end of the stick on Taxes.
The reasons for that Civil War can be seen today. This government is doing things to day that can cause another conflict.
The western states are seeing EPA and other arms of the FEDGOV attacking land rights.
North Carolina is being told that a company cant move there because NC is a right to work state.
And now we have the ultimate thug. Obama. This man is seriously demented. His hatred seems to part of his DNA. You can tell by his choice of friends and cabinet members. Even his mate is part of it.
Obama hates white Christians and conservative Jews. He also hates people who produce wealth. He thinks that hard work alone cannot create success.
And if the GOP picks another RINO.....we will be on the road to total destruction.
