Scott Pelley, CBS "Evening News" anchor: How do you create jobs in this country?
Robert Johnson, founder of BET: Unfortunately now, I don't think we have the leadership either in the White House or the Congress to end what I call a zero-sum game mentality towards the U.S. economy. And until both parties agree that the goal is to rebuild the American economy to reflect the 21st century on a global environment - we're going to be stuck. And it's a little bit frightening from the standpoint of a business person and particularly an African-American business person.
Pelley: What do you mean frightening?
Johnson: The facts are African-American unemployment is 16.7 percent, almost double the national average and probably higher than that when you factor in those people who've given up or those people who can't find real jobs. And studies continue to show that African-Americans are falling behind by every indices that you can imagine - home ownership, economic opportunity, access to capital. And that to me, creates a prescription that could lead to two societies, separate and unequal, but also to a lot of social unrest.

Pass the popcorn.
IOW, Obamugabe is in deep kimchee....
I am not a great fan of Robert Johnson, because as a successful businessman of color, he knew in his heart of hearts that Barack Hussein Obama should have never, ever been considered POTUS material!!! But......he backed Obama for all the known and obvious reasons!!! However, I agree with his assessment relating to failed POTUS Obama. He gets gets it. And.....so do many other American Black folk!!! The economic plight of the Black community will get worse, if Blacks hang in with Obama. The smartest move for Black folks is to broom Obama and the Democrat Party for failing them on every front. If they stay with Obama, they sink on two fronts, one internally, remaining as economic slaves to Obama and the Democrat Party and, more importantly isolating themselves from the general American society for many years to come. Mr. Johnson sees this!!! They best heed his advice and direction!!! Staying on top of an Obama horse that doesn’t run, is no way to go through life for themselves, their children and children yet to come!!!
I’m seeing more and more criticisms Of O’loser being displayed, and discussed, on the MSM. Are they getting ready to dump O’loser? I think they know he’s politically cooked and they’re hoping the Hildabeast opposes him. Even Bubba came out in public and said his economic plan won’t work.
Guys, listen. The left in this country and in the media are PISSED. ONLY because Obama is not LEFT enough. They want a frikkin’ DICTATOR!!!!!!!!! I can’t stress this enough.

You’re exactly right.
The left is vile.
Too bad these fools didn’t vet Mr. HopeyChangy back in ‘08.
Exactly. They’ll all be voting for Dumbo in the next election.
| Jackwagon Obama is trying to addict the country to the drug called 'government.'
Countdown until Zer0 leaves Office: 479 days as of September 28, 2011.
Exactly. This is all a ruse. DO NOT TRUST THIS!!!!!
I have been reading posts by MANY African-American people on issues on the web. THEY WILL ALWAYS VOTE “D”!!!!! They are NOT going to change this election cycle. PERIOD.
"As you adequately put, the problem is choice. But we already know what you're going to do, don't we? Already I can see the chain reaction, the chemical precursors that signal the onset of emotion, designed specifically to overwhelm logic, and reason. An emotion that is already blinding you from the simple, and obvious truth:..."
Great food coupon!!! The name of the program, once Food Stamps, now SNAP, needs to be changed to OH SNAP!!!
I'm with you - what the left wants is someone who will make Obama look like Sarah Palin...
” Staying on top of an Obama horse that doesnt run, is no way to go through life for themselves, their children and children yet to come!!!”
Calls to mind Animal House’s Dean Wormer: Son, fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life.
After entering this into my left wing liberal loon translation software this is what I got:
"If these damn conservatives take Congress and the country dumps this moron because he is a marxist and we can no longer fool them, then our free ride is over.
We must stick to the new utopia of a one world government creating the 21st century economy dedicated totally to saving the planet because we are all stupid Gore worshipers that make even Sciencetoligist look sane!"
By this time in the trilogy I was half asleep and could have sworn that was Obi Wan talking to Anikan about the Force.
I think that this interview is appropriately relevant-
Mister BET (Black Entertainment Television) Johnson can complain all he wants about the Marxist in the White House, but he and 95% of the Blacks will vote for Barry based mostly on race in 2012. It is a racial thing no matter how much media spins it.
