"There's only one thing different about Barack Obama when it comes to being a Democratic presidential candidate. He's half African-American," Nader told the paper in comments published Tuesday. "Whether that will make any difference, I don't know. I haven't heard him have a strong crackdown on economic exploitation in the ghettos. Payday loans, predatory lending, asbestos, lead. What's keeping him from doing that? Is it because he wants to talk white? He doesn't want to appear like Jesse Jackson? We'll see all that play out in the next few months and if he gets elected afterwards."


"I mean, first of all, the number one thing that a black American politician aspiring to the presidency should be is to candidly describe the plight of the poor, especially in the inner cities and the rural areas, and have a very detailed platform about how the poor is going to be defended by the law, is going to be protected by the law, and is going to be liberated by the law," he said. "Haven't heard a thing."

Nader also said Obama is making a concerted effort not to be "another politically threatening African-American politician."


"He wants to appeal to white guilt. You appeal to white guilt not by coming on as black is beautiful, black is powerful. Basically he's coming on as someone who is not going to threaten the white power structure, whether it's corporate or whether it's simply oligarchic. And they love it. Whites just eat it up."


"They are both enthralled to the corporate powers," he told CNN of both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. "They've completely ignored the presidential pattern of illegality and accountability, they've ignored the out of control waste-fruad military expenditures, they hardly ever mention the diversion of hundreds of billions of dollars to corporate subsidies, handouts, and giveaways, and they don't talk about a living wage."

Mr. Nader has run for President a few times i believe.

Has he ever spoke on the things that plague the Black community specifically, or is he only doing it now?

Sis Destee, I don't know Nader's motivations, however he said what many like myself have been saying from day one. Many whites, and their wannabe WHITE ACTING/SOUNDING/THINKING Negroes will find great offense at Nader's comments without actually acknowledging or addressing what was actually said.

His comments were right on, with the exception of his comment on white guilt. whites want to give the illusion they are not racists and can elect a person of color as commander-and-chief, but the reality is this is only possible when the candidate packages himself in the mold of the "BLACK SKINNED WHITE ETHIOPIAN" whites are so fond of saying existed in ancient times which of course is a complete and utter fallacy.

The truth is, Obama has never addressed black issues, nor has he followed in the tradition of even the man he tries so hard to sound like, Martin Luther King. Obama has paid no dues except to maintaining the WHITE supremacy infrastructure.

If I may I would like for everyone to purchase this book I recently read titled "Black Pain" by Terrie Williams. I wont give away details but I believe those who may read this book will discover why their symbolic, blind and unapologetic support for Obama resonates today.
