    Yes, despite all the hate from Blacks and Whites, and despite the press's incessant attempts at bringing him down, Obama continues to carry on, whittling away at the mess left by Bush.

    But what has he done for Black people? you ask. The same thing he has done for all people. Read and see.Why can't we see what he has done for us? The press and the White Wing can see it, that's why they hate him so much. It is so plain to them that they called him "tar baby." This man has so much tenacity and integrity that he pays them no mind but works for the people, all people who aren't billionaires, despite tremendous obstacles and opposition. Isn't that what Black men and women have always done?

    Exactly River, this is what we've always done. And the pressures he's incurring is millions times greater. Tenacity, Integrity,
    Character....these traits that are so much ours as a race. He is showing to the World.

    As I said some time ago, Obama's greatest contribution to Black people is that he is a Black man who does not think he has to have a White woman on his arm to be successful.

    Thank you for this,and i agree with you 100%. But Obama could cure cancer and you would still have some of us claiming he has done nothing for blacks. No one that is against him recolonizes efforts like this.

    Now this is something that directly effects us,but does he get any credit for it? No.

    Peace!

    Peace!
