    As a community activist then senator,
    the message of Barack Obama's succes first as a Black senator,
    should make all of us realize that we must be asute, aware, and awake
    about poltics, the political process,
    and acutely aware of our local politics;
    from PTA meetings,
    community board meetings,
    voter registration drives,
    civic education seminars and rallies.

    His presidency should make us aware of the strategy of funding politicians, via our stategizng and colective effort, across, city, state or nation

    But it is his message to the black community, his actual simple statement
    "GET FOCUSED AND INVOLVED IN BUILDING UP THE BLACK COMMUNITY AND COMMUNITY ACTIVISM"

    that some do not like, in fact many of us do not like to focus or discuss
    that, or get inolved in our communities.

    Folks desire to praise him in name but not in action and seek to neglect his message,
    and in all honesty, what kind of praise is that realy?

    "How many times in the last year has this city lost a child at the hands of another child? How many times have our hearts stopped in the middle of the night with the sound of a gunshot or a siren? How many teenagers have we seen hanging around on street corners when they should be sitting in a classroom? How many are sitting in prison when they should be working, or at least looking for a job? How many in this generation are we willing to lose to poverty or violence or addiction? How many?"

    President Barrack Hussein Obama

    Wouldn't focus need to be on how to acquire (or produce) stuff say food in concurrence with political participation?

    And all of this is Obama's fault? I'm sure that when he became president that all of this would go away. You all need to stop...really.

    That's a nice story.
    You could just as easily have asked me not to interject my perspective into your thread or threads.
    I'll take the liberty to infer from your story that you feel I detract from the message or point you are seeking to make? Would this be correct?

    "And what I’ve realized is that life doesn’t count for much unless you’re willing to do your small part to leave our children — all of our children — a better world. Even if it’s difficult. Even if the work seems great. Even if we don’t get very far in our lifetime."

    President Barrack Obama

    it is not my job to teach any one here how to read the english language, and though it is not our original language it is the only mode of communication we have,
    neither is it my job to teach people in a discussion board to follow a flow of conversation by reading the beginning of a thread to understand what the thread is about and focused on!!!!!!!!!!!

    As a community activist then senator,
    the message of Barack Obama's succes first as a Black senator,

    So brother Enki, the brother in the White House has conveyed the message that all of the "cheerleaders"
    and pabnengyrists need to get up off of their hinderparts,
    and do something to try to alleviate the condition mentioned,so what are doing to alleviate this in your area?Or do you praise Obama with effections, but refuse to do what he has asked all of us to do?????Because I have been for over 27 years

    and will continue to
