Some African-Americans say Obama failing to help black community

After turning out in record numbers to help elect the first black president, some African-Americans have begun to criticize President Barack Obama for failing to develop economic and social policies targeting the black community, which has suffered disproportionately from the recession.

The debate over whether the president should address a "black agenda" has deeply divided African-Americans and created a rift between some civil rights activists who prefer to work behind the scenes with the president and prominent leaders who have chosen to voice their concerns publicly.

Even the most racist arch conservative presidents and canduidates made some promises to the Black community, each election since Johnson, even if it was just to a group of Boule's or "house negro type ministers.

The record is there

Here we go with this entitlement garbage.

How is Tavis Smiley going to criticize President Obama about "helping the black community" when he was touring the nation getting black folks trapped in sub-prime mortgages?

Why are we expecting the Pres. to do anything for us?

If we want something done, why can't we do it ourselves?

Oh, I forgot......white supremacy is holding us down!

Any criticism of Obama and his administration are unfounded. Those who criticize him have no idea of the obstacles he is up against and don't count those obstacles as part of the reason for his apparent 'failure.' He hasn't 'failed' anyone, including black people.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
