resident Obama is launching a new initiative to help young men of color. Its called My Brothers Keeper.
The President told Charles Barkley in a television interview last night that he wants create special educational, mentorship and apprenticeship programs for a specific segment of the population.
Were going to pull together private philanthropies, foundations working with governors, mayors non-profits and were going to focus on young men of color and find ways in which to create more pathways to success for them, the president told Barkley.
He said he wants to expose young men of color to career options that could pay as much as $35 an hour.
Across the board from the time theyre young all the way to their first job, we want to help more young African-American men and Latino men succeed, he said.
I applaud the presidents initiative but what about the young, white man looking for a job?
Where are the special programs designed to help him get a leg up in the world? Where are the mentoring and interning opportunities for white kids from impoverished neighborhoods?
The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once had a dream that his children would one day live in a nation where they would not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
Lets hope in the future that President Obama applies that same standard when it comes time to helping young men find jobs no matter the color of their skin.
I dont need his fing help thank you
dem gimme-dats ain’t gonna work. Dey’s be wantin’ whitey to provide for ‘em

Hollow words; the teachers’ unions that own the Dem Party will never fix what ails “young men of color”. They are directly responsible for passing them through school while they never learn to read & write.
Forget it, kid! If you’re White, you are the enemy in the eyes of the occupant of the white hut. Anyhoo, like you said, Al, I don’t need, or want, his help either. My mother just passed away and I need to get back out in the work force, I found a job, doesn’t pay as much and it is for survival, but I did it on my own.
Too many whiteys can’t find work, and they’re entitled to the same freebies as people of color.
Being your brother’s keeper means clubbing to death those who you don’t consider your brother. Namely whitey.
This sounds a lot like affirmative action. Which is how we got our current president.
Give them all iPhones, so they can make better flash mobs.
Oh, sorry, I guess you’ve already done that.
I am guessing that the “pathways to success” that B0 is wanting to create don’t have much at all to do with “stay in school, work hard, work hard, work hard”. Probably something that puts the “young men of color” to the front of the line.
“...and were going to focus on young men of color and find ways in which to create more pathways to success for them,”
The one’s I’m thinking of need to be shipped off to the farm system where they can first be taught how to grow some brains.
as others have echoed here from their own experiences, they are told “these programs aren’t for white men, white men pay for these programs.”
Only this illegal Kenyan immigrant could further Balkinize the people of this great nation. His puppet handlers don’t know when to shut this puppet up.
What if you are ecru, taupe or bone?
Sure. Obamacare has one. Testing blood tranfusions.
He’s a racist. Why should White taxpayers sacrifice to see that their children get an education, develop moral character that keeps them out of trouble, and teach them the value of work and then have their children passed over for jobs because government bureaucrats want a minority member to have that job? Whites are getting fed up with paying for this discrimination against their sons.
“Eggshell”? That’s the color Dad always painted the ceilings. That ain’t white. You want white, think “Snow.” “Eggshell” is a descriptor of a “person of color.” “Snow” is the descriptor for a person of pallor.
I thought that’s what job corp. was about??
I am about as white as you can bet but I have been retired 6 years and do not want to go back to work. I have given myself a title of “Retirement Engineer”.
Reverse racism is still racism, and there is no redeeming social benefit in “affirmative action”. This is merely an attempt to formalize and extend an undeserved and inherently unfair form of favoritism.
White liberal guilt, and those who would play upon it, is ultimately among the most cowardly of appeasement tactics, responding to “political correctness”. The “Peter principle” is pushed way past its natural limit, in that the ultimate failure is normally only one level beyond his or her competence. This program being offered would push the ultimate failure many steps beyond the real level of competence.
We have already seen the effects of that, with the Current Regime now squatting in the White Hut.
Large numbers of ybms are not. A great many of them hate school , get in trouble with the law, and have an attitude that the world owes them. The solution: explain to these ybms who are having problems finding jobs that studying hard in school, obeying the law, and having a positive attitude towards life is the gateway to success in life. Sounds easy, doesn't it? (smirk)
I would suggest changing sports scholarships into academic scholarships. Maybe the college makes money on sports but the individual makes money on education.
If you follow his past agenda, I’d say he’d want white guys to have jobs, to pay taxes, and transfer that earned wealth to others so they won’t have to work.
But, he has his H8YT going on so strong that he would probably go against all reason and prevent them from being employed as well.
“It’s almost to the point where it’s time to quit working and live off the goober-mint like everyone else. Why bust my arse for someone else’s gain?”
That is the issue for the gubmint: if it can’t maintain a better standard of living for those that bother to get up and work every day, then soon nobody will be working. Happened to western Europe years ago, and it is happening here already; if working a job lands you in the same boat as somebody who doesn’t bother, then people are just going to drop off the payrolls and onto the welfare rolls. Urban America saw this first; low-skilled workers living across the hall from welfare deadbeats.
I seem to remember when the LIBS thought it a great idea for prisons to give College Credits to inmates at OUR expense.
I am a little ‘iffy’ on the College Credits but it may help a number of people to ‘get on path’.
The IDIOCY takes over when they start at 8th and 9th Grade Level and when we said “They, like all of us, were required by law to be in school until 16 years old, so we have already mostly paid for the 8th, 9th and 10th grade studies etc”, we were deemed racists and heartless.
Anyone surprised that the racist in chief only cares about brown skinned people?
It’s the only reason he was elected

Our ruling class will never be honest with our unassimilated urban minorities concerning their plight; they have no future, and are losing out to immigrants who land here with no English skills, little education, but a burning desire to succeed. At this point most high school diplomas, and a good number of college degrees, awarded to “preferred minorities” are worthless...
The senior executives would mentor women and minorities. . . .and receive extra pay for doing so.
They would NOT receive extra pay for mentoring white males, which meant the W/Ms never were "sponsored" and rarely received bonuses or invites to highly-visible events, thereby becoming invisible and "stuck" while the less able, less experienced would be rewarded with pay, special training programs and promotions.
And the company is wondering why they are hemorrhaging experienced W/Ms with all the experience. . .in favor of diversity hires.
A group of new hires would be paraded through on a tour. . .usually all engineers. Of this group there would be about 20% W/M and the rest were women and minorities. . . .but the percentage of women and minorities graduating with engineering degrees are no where near 80%.
We are killing our own industry and competitiveness.
If he did, then how come their unemployment is higher then any other? He just pretends to care about them, and they buy every word by him hook line and sinker
He can’t even help his own people get work! He has betrayed his own race—along with everyone else.
if anything obama is working to get white men out of jobs, so that those jobs will hire his desired friends of color.
he’s only half black, the other half is white.
he’s betrayed both races, if you want to talk about betrayal.
“He said he wants to expose young men of color..”
Some of the biggest criminals in the country are the academicians who allowed Black Studies and all the other worthless ethnic and gender-related “studies.”

Certainly; meaningless GPA boosters that promote victimhood and “explain” the failure that is sure to follow graduation. Because of these classes, employers want to know your GPA in classes related to your major; they know the game.
What makes Obama think they want jobs? Most are doing fine without them.
Not now. In the early '60s that was the idea, and the fathers present in most black families stressed it.
The d@mned liberals got rid of the Fathers in all too many families, and even Grandma can't get it through their heads that that is the ticket.
Oddly enough, the change came during the height of the 'Civil Rights Movement'. LBJ was right about the vote, though...
“I have given myself a title of Retirement Engineer.”
I am willing to be your assistant engineer without salary, all you need do is furnish a house for my wife and me, pay for our groceries, cable bill, utilities etc. We will even keep your lawn mowed.
