Skip to comments.Obama To Launch ‘My Brother’s Keeper’ Initiative For Young Men Of Color
Posted on 02/12/2014 7:51:58 AM PST by Nachum
President Barack Obama (pictured) has been aggressively pushing an agenda that strengthens the core of the nation via education, job creation, and supporting middle class families. Now the administration will turn its aim to improve the lives of young men of color via an initiative titled My Brothers Keeper.
Although the President has shied away from race matters in the past, there has been an undeniable shift in focus from the White House regarding the plight of young people of color who have been disproportionately slammed by poverty, lack of opportunity, and unfair prison sentences.
According to a Washington Post report, the President will officially announce the launch of this new plan this Thursday, and it comes at a critical point in his second term. President Obama has endured heavy criticism from Black leaders and other minority groups for not tailoring his policies toward their needs.

He's the president and can do whatever he wants.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Anyone going to tell him this biblical reference comes from that nasty little Cain & Abel incident?
Another “I hate whitey” move.
So he's changing the job description of "Parole Officer" to "Brother Keeper"?
That mentoring is needed and can be a life transforming intervention is not disputed. I would not want the author of the poem ‘Pop’ touching it at any stage however.
“My Brother’s Keeper?” Really now? Doesn’t this guy”s real-life half brother live in a hut in Nairobi on less tha $100 per year?
True brotherhood would be all of us helping one another, not just black youth helping only black youth.
It’s always about the words and the slogan with this guy. Never the action.
I suppose this theme “my brother’s keeper” instead of, say, one to promote families made up of married, heterosexual spouses, allows him to continue to promote gay rights’ agendas.
Shied away?! That is all that guy’s about.
And only SIX YEARS after he was elected too!
Isn’t it racist to have a program for young men of color?
Liberals sometimes tell us it’s racist to talk about black gang members and such, as they tell us that there are white boys who get in trouble with the law.
So let’s hold the liberals to their criteria, and talk about programs for all troubled boys and young men, not just “young men of color”.
Did this author just seriously write that?
And yet he does nothing for his brother in Kenya who lives in a hut.
Oh wait! I forgot he can’t vote.
Soooooo government approved racism and discrimination....
Well, maybe the program is to keep blacks from killing blacks. But the looney left is going to turn on him big time if they think he's gone even a little biblical on them.
AN OVERSIGHT! the kenyan is only his HALF BROTHER.
the My Half Brothers Keeper Agenda will be released in early April...very near the FIrst of the month....
I’m glad you mention that Cain and Abel story.
Obama has said that he was attracted to Christianity by tenets such as our being our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper.
For Obama to completely misinterpret and mangle a Bible story shows how little he really understands Christianity. Yet he cites this as his reason for being a Christian.
Empowering his own kind with favoritism. I hought that went against the whole “We are the World” mantra pogressivism shoves down our throats... Unless he’s king and it’s “I do whatever I want” decree...
this is very “New Jack City”.
(for those in rio linda, it is a line in the movie)
Uh..... what particular color does one have to be ?
I thought Holder was out saying that prisons were brother keepers. I’m confused.
Besides, the Crips and Bloods already got that concession.
Didn’t O’Reilly challenge Obama to do something about young black men fathering children, but not staying around to raise and support their family during his Superbowl interview?
“And yet he does nothing for his brother in Kenya who lives in a hut.”
It’s gotten so bad that people in Kenya now are saying Obama’s 100 percent American.
He knows full well what 'brother's keeper' refers to, but the devil is in the details.
Don’t worry, you and I and all other White Folks will be paying for it.
After all it’s “White Folks” greed that leaves the world in need.
What do we want?
When do we want it?
Maybe a new college BA program. Black Male Studies. Hire thousands of teachers, raise tuition for everyone by 50% so black males can learn about themselves.
Oh yeah, and with the college degree required for jobs these days, they can take away jobs from skilled white middle 50’s applicants who lost their jobs due to other “studies” programs.
“”Isnt it racist to have a program for young men of color?””
This was one of the subjects that O’Reilly touched on in his interview - why hadn’t he put emphasis on problems in the black families? Guess it hadn’t dawned on him before that but now he’ll get busy. Of course, his answer to BOR was he’d already been doing that!!!
Sounds like that's what that pervert Missouri football player majored in.
“”Didnt OReilly challenge Obama to do something about young black men fathering children, but not staying around to raise and support their family during his Superbowl interview?””
You are correct. I hadn’t seen your post when I posted...
Shame the baby-daddy thugs. Push for it to be a societal no-no to abandon your kids.
Rap used to push this in the 90’s.
Good luck in getting them to sign up. Whenever I do volunteer fundraisers, blacks are almost non-existent.
Outstanding examples of progress will be given the “Mark of Cain.” /sarc
Obama has done absolutely NOTHING to help the middle class in this country. This article starts with a lie and stays with that course...
This has to be satire,or Jay Lenos last monologue
Good one Milton. My guess is this initiative was thought up by some guilty white liberal elites in Obama's Administration.... It has all the earmarks...
Thank you, ‘Thank You Rush’. (couldn’t resist that!)
Maybe Obama, Pelosi, et. al. do pay attention to FOX News, no matter how much they bash FOX.
This is nothing more than throwing money at black leaders who have been critical to shut them up and at donors as a kickback. The only "brothers" that are going to be "kept" in this program are going to be those administering the program and getting all the cash.
Good one Milton. My guess is this initiative was thought up by white liberal elites in Obama's Administration.... It has all the earmarks...
Elites in banana republics partner with the criminal class to keep down the middle class.
That's what this feels like. If Obama wanted to help the black community he would be seeking assistance for blacks who are LAWFUL and are attempting to work within the system in an honorable way. That would work as a powerful incentive for good within the black community.
This 'brother's keeper' program props up the criminal class... which helps keep white liberal elites in power... Bill Keller of the New York Times is a white liberal elite - and he'll LOVE this program.
... gotta have a program. Can’t live without a program.
Why is he concentrating on divisive policies just now? Perhaps the fact that Hispanics support is rapidly eroding even with the immigration push. His positive support with that group is down to 53% with only 14% strongly supporting and 38% opposition. It’s not just whites that can’t stand the stench coming from this administration. Plus, these numbers are from Gallup who trends left.
It's what liberals do. George Stepanopolous said it best back during the Klintoon administration, before he went to ABC:
To a liberal, saying something about a problem is THE SAME as doing something about a problem.
