President Obama turns attention to minority males
The South Florida Times / The Associated Press ^ | March 6, 2014 | Mohamed Hamaludin

In one of the most significant steps of its kind taken by any Administration, President Barack Obama has unveiled a plan which he hopes will lift young minority men out of a persistent cycle of despair and hopelessness into productive lives.

Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative will be in the hands of a top-level task force, which the president has appointed “to develop a coordinated federal effort to improve significantly the expected life outcomes for boys and young men of color,” he wrote in a memo outlining his plan.

The program will cover not only young African-American men but also Hispanics and Native Americans and the “My Brother’s Keeper Task Force” has been directed to report on its progress regularly over the next year....

Aren’t these the same males that Obama is trying to keep unemployed at record levels?

Minimum Wages were originally designed and still work to keep the Black Man unemployed.

Okay my little men:

Can you say, “That’s racist?”

Can you say, “I didn’t get picked because I’m black?”

Can you say, “I didnt’ get in because I’m black?”

Can you say, “I didn’t get the job because I’m black?”

Okay! That’s great. It worked for me. It’ll work for you.

It would require a chnage in liberal philopshy to undo the damage it does on the black family.

What a load of BS, O’Reilly put the Zero on the spot and he had to do something. He despises all these ghetto kids because they have no education, and will never get one.

He’s probably telling these kids about the men he used to blow for blow in high school.

Sorry, but I think it’s “Obama turns his BACK on minority males.”

All of his projects are to help people make bad choices with no consequences.

If we parented the way he “helps people” we would give the keys to the car and a bottle of booze to our 16 year old son, and slap a $20 in his hand and tell him to buy condoms with it. “Have a good evening, son! Remember, your uncle is a crooked lawyer and can get you out of anything if you get into trouble. He’s got some great pictures of the district attorney coming out of a whorehouse, so have fun, kid!”

If you are talking about his Man Country and Chicago bathhouse days, they said he preferred older white males.

Hope he doesn’t want to help the black boys get “ahead” the way those men helped him.

I love the headline.
“_resident nobama turns his attention to minority males.”
Maybe he will finally come out of the closet. If the beard will let him.

I wish he’d resign.....and take his posse with him. It would do a lot for my hopelessness and despair.

In otherwords. Obama has just admitted that decades of democrat rule over the black citizen has utterly failed.

Uncle Scam has been giving taxpayers handouts and preferential treatment to minority males for fifty years. Minority males have cost us Trillions in direct and indirect costs without any appreciable improvement or positive effect. At what point do we declare its a lost cause?

From the article:

“Nothing is given to you,” he said. “The world is tough out there. There’s a lot of competition for jobs and college positions and everybody has to work hard. But I know you guys can succeed.”

Doesn’t sound to me like his desire is to keep young males on the “plantation”.

Lip service... he got everything he has for just showing up, and he acts like that’s too demanding half of the time.

Oh, I just saw your “born-on-date” here. Nevermind. BTW, do you guys still get free Pizza Uno on Fridays? What kind of latte do they serve in the employee lounge? Is it sustainably and ethically sourced?

He talks the talk but he never walks the walk.

Now if he and Michelle were to adopt one of these underprivileged lads and send him to the Sidwell School, Obama might be more credible.

Do these Einsteins realize that the first person who used the phrase, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” had murdered his brother?

Maybe that IS what they’re aiming at. That’s certainly what’s happening in the inner city right now, isn’t it?
