Barack Obama, Do Something For Black People
|English: Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth President of the United States. Latviešu: Abrahams Linkolns, sešpadsmitais ASV prezidents. Српски / Srpski: Абрахам Линколн, шеснаести председник Сједињених Америчких Држава. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)|
The black folks who ran as hard as they could from Barack Obama in 2007 were some of the loudest in 2009 and 2010 and 2011 in saying he was not hiring enough black folks in the top ranks, he was not doing enough for black folks. I said then that the best thing Barack Obama can do for black people is to do the very best he can as president. Just do a good job. Perform well. And he has achieved FDR heights. He has performed. He has delivered like a once in a half century president.
But now it is time to do something fundamental for the black people. I have no idea when this country might see another black president. It might not happen for a while. I don't see anyone on the horizon. So let's squeeze as much out of this final year as we possibly can. Let's do something for black people. Let's do something fundamental.
