Obama to Critics: ‘I Am Not the President of Black America’
President Barack Obama recently has been facing much criticizm that he hasn’t done enough for Black Americans, which had him responding that he isn’t the president of Black America. But in answer to the reply that he hasn’t done anything for Blacks, that isn’t exactly true, as he has created a racial situation when he signed an executive order, giving black students special treatment. This I will go into shortly.
“My general view has been consistent throughout, which is that I want all businesses to succeed,” Obama told Black Enterprise magazine in an interview in the Oval Office. “I want all Americans to have opportunity. I’m not the president of black
America. “I’m the president of the United States of America, but the programs that we have put in place have been directed at those folks who are least able to get financing through conventional means, who have been in the past locked out of opportunities that were available to everybody.
“So, I’ll put my track record up against anybody in terms of us putting in place broad-based programs that ultimately had a huge benefit for African-American businesses,” Obama said. Newsmax
Criticism of Obama’s commitment to African Americans has intensified in the past
year – most notably by author and Princeton University professor Cornel West, who once described the president as being a “black mascot of Wall Street oligarchs and a black puppet of corporate plutocrats.”
And just last month, the 1,300-member Coalition of African-American Pastors called on blacks to boycott Obama and sign petitions demanding that the administration withdraw its support for gay marriage. But now on to how he’s help black students, with his latest executive order concerning blacks, and education.
The Washington Post in 2010, published an article saying that in order to hold onto a Democratic Party majority in Congress, President Barack Obama was exacerbating racial tension by turning his attention to minorities to the exclusion of white voters. Obama was even quoted as saying: “It will be up to each of you to make sure that the young people, African-Americans, Latinos and women, who powered our victory in 2008, stand together once again.”
There is even more evidence in advance of the presidential election coming up in fewer than 100 days President Obama is playing that same card in the high-stakes game to keep his seat in the Oval Office. On July 26, Obama signed an executive order which he called the “White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans.” The initiative will be administered by the Department of Education.
In signing this order, he has turned education into racism, as he excluded, whites, hispanics, and other minorities. But the liberal media hasn’t covered this topic in the news. Instead we have a president talking out of both sides of his mouth. Meanwhile, Black clergy say they were once proud of Obama, but now their pride has turned to shame.
