Skip to comments.NAACP president: Black people worse off under Obama
Posted on 01/29/2013 4:30:43 PM PST by lowbridge
NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous said Sunday, perhaps unwittingly, that black Americans are doing far worse than when President Obama first took office.
The countrys back to pretty much where it was when this president started, Mr. Jealous told MSNBC host David Gregory on Meet the Press. White people in this country are doing a bit better. Black people are doing far worse.

You get what you vote for.
The Democrats have used them brutally. They've killed their babies; brought in Mexicans to do their jobs; consigned their youth to the streets; ......... ain't nothin' good coming their way from the Democrat politicians.
The Republicans have been redistricting to insure that black people can get elected to city councils, state legislatures and the US Congress. Democrats are actually fighting against such redistricting.
The data was there ~ the story line is simple ~ Romney and the Mittbots could have used it to great effect ........ but they didn't even start their campaign.
putting them back on the plantation?
Just blame the white half, bro.
Black people worst off under Democrats(period) - Detroit is a fine example!
Kool-Aide drinkin, phone hustled, SNAP bamboozled, section 8 lovin, obamabucks droolin morons.
Obama has done more to hurt blacks than Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and Charlie Rangel; combined!!
Captain Obvious, please report to the bridge.
One ting cleer: Oooobama has now to take the houses and businesses from crackers and givem to bros
equalization complete - nobody got notin’
Since Obama’s been in charge the demographics have changed to 65% Hispanic and 33% African american in the historically black neighborhood of Compton, CA.
It’s so bad that Hispanic gangs are harassing and attacking black families until theyre forced to leave.
I understand what you are saying Mr. Jealous, but until you stop voting for skin color, you are screwed.
It really isn’t about race at all. The ruling class just uses race and division to keep the body of Americans at each others throats so we do not unite and go after the real bad guys, the ruling class.
They know if that ever happens, they are dead meat! There is more of us than there are them!
But they get free phones, so we’re all good.
>>More evidence that it is time for black people to come home to the Republican party<<
Blacks would have voted for obozo even if he was bringing back literal slavery and put them back in chains.
Yes, their racism runs that deep.
Well, YOU ALL VOTED FOR HIM, YOU A-HOLES!
HE’S PRESIDENT BECAUSE OF YOU, DUMB*SSES!
Don’t look for any sympathy here, MORON.
Yep, you can’t fix stupid and Obama counted on them being low information voters. They sure didn’t disappoint.
Well, he didn’t give much to the messiah:
“Obama 2009 Inauguration Donors
Inauguration Donations (See Top Donors Only)
Funny... there are a whole lot of black men working at my company, and they’re hard-working, God-fearing, Republicans with degrees and years of job experience or military backgrounds. They’re proud of their work unlike the Facebook/Twitter generations who just “wanna get paid” so they can “get dat ass.”
The younger generation’s problem is that they can’t be taken seriously. Blacks already have a disadvantage walking into a professional interview. They even proved it with a study showing that blacks with oddball names are less likely to even get an interview.
The black men I call peers have good old fashioned Christian names like Richard, Patrick, Jerome, and Daniel. Not many Demetrius’ or Vontavius’ around my neck of the woods.
The mentality of too many people (not just Blacks) is that as long as they think they’ll get some kind (any kind) of occasional payout, they don’t really care if the world around them turns to absolute crap. Its kinds of like the Vegas gambler who is glued to the slot machine. It doesn’t matter that he’s losing his $$ one dollar at a time, he’ll keep pulling the lever as long as there’s the promise of a payday.
The family unit was a source of strength after slavery ended. It was decade after decade of progress. They planted all of the seeds of their greatest success in this centrury. When they were not allowed into sport leagues, they formed their own, played by the same rules, and showed they were as good or better than whites. Black participation and innovation in the arts and music were at a peak.
Then they went over to the democrats. While some progress continued, and most blacks today are middle class, they are suffering from a multitude of serious problems caused by adopting the ideology of white liberals. The family unit collapsed, drugs spread, and black culture collapsed and became poisonous to their own people, especially young black men. None of the serious problems in black culture today was given to them by republicans, it is entirely by adopting the welfare mentality of white liberals.
Very sad but it is hardly a secret that Obama essentially gets a free pass from black voters due to one-half of his skin color, even though he has made them worse off. The Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Cleaver admits much the same, that Obama is getting special treatment due to his race, “With 14% unemployment, if we had a white president we’d be marching around the White House. The president knows we are going to act in deference to him in a way we wouldn’t to someone white.” Maxine Waters of all people goes even further, explaining that her black constituents don’t want their leadership to criticize Obama, If we go after the president too hard, you’re going after us.Too bad that the millions of minorities who have disproportionately lost their jobs, homes and savings didn’t just stay home on Election day.
This guy grew up white in a white family in Hawaii. he had to go to school to learn to understand what black people were saying.
We should have run superior candidates against Obama but we ran our candidates who were most likely to fail.
Good grief. Pigs are flying somewhere in muslim-land! This guy actually is saying something truthful! Was it on purpose?
Absolutely ~ sure, he voted for Obama, but that’s most likely the last time he’ll ever vote for a black Democrat for President ~ it was historic. America’s first, last and only black President for how long ~ centuries ~ millenia?
You can file that, Mr Jealous, under “Shoulda Voted Republican”.
putting them back on the plantation?
The obumbo-crats have been doing that since the 1960s and LBJs institution of “welfare”.
If HUD were in charge of the navy the entire fleet would be on the bottom of the sea.
First Bill Maher, now Benjamin Jealous. Here’s what Maher said a few days ago:
“In 1968 it was 51 to 1, people on disability to people who worked. In 2001, it was 23 to 1. Now it’s 13 to 1. So, I mean, obviously there are some people who really do have disabilities. But 13 to 1? You know, it just seems like theres less people pulling the wagon and more people in the wagon, and at some point the wagon is going to break.”
Have someone slipped liberals a truth serum over the weekend or something?
But look at it this way, under Obama you will never be prosecuted for voter intimidation or fraud. Lucky you!
I don’t want to hear it. Blacks voted for Obama at over 95%,
Actually all of them has done more damage than the KKK did..
Black men cannot run Africa, where they have a homogeneity of blackness in culture and philosophy.....
how do they expect one to run America?
Almost every major city is run by Democrats and every one of those cities has large concentrations of poor blacks who proceed to deal in drugs, have children by several different men, and murder each other.
Well Mr. Jealous, the house Negroes always treat the plantation Negroes exactly as directed by their massahs.
Send the illegals to Detroit.... Let them re-build it..
FREE.. land, houses and citizenship..
They probably wouldn’t like all the Muzzies there....
The Cargo Cult of the Democratic Party.
Economy tanks ....women and minorities hardest hit. News at 11.
Well, plenty of white people are worse off under Obamao too, so I guess that means he’s not as much of a racist as I thought...
Shoulda brought that up during the election, Mr. NAACP preisent.
Wonder if NAACP will have a new President before long. Mr. Jealous obviously needs to spend more time on the plantation for even thinking this, let alone saying it.
Benjamin Jealous has to be the most accurately named person in America.
“are doing far worse than when President Obama first took office. “
And still the vast majority of black rubes voted for obammy!!
Hey Blacks,you think its Bad now? Wait until the 11 million Hispanics become Citizens and start competing for those 10 dollar an hour jobs,the jobs will then be 7 dollar an hour jobs,and there will be fewer of them.
Of course it will not be Obungos fault,it will be the WHITE mans fault.
Make note Naacp,its Obama who wants to make it EASIER for These ILLEGAL Hispanics to become citizens and get all those Jobs that Blacks uusally get.
What is mr. Jealous basing his opinion on that “white people are doing a bit better?” How the heck would he know? For the first time in 40 years I don’t have a job and haven’t had one for 2 months.
But he is right about his fellow blacks. Central Florida is heavily a minority community and I see it every day. Black people, mostly male, sitting on their front porch or just walking the neighborhood looking lost. They don’t have much hope and Obama does NOTHING for them except give them a paltry handout. Disgraceful.
