Black Americans voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama. Somehow they thought that having a Black President* would benefit them. In reality, it is a President’s policies that help or hurt people, not the color of their skin. Too bad many people do not understand this simple concept. Nor do they seem to understand what policies help or hurt them. If they did, they would not continue to vote for Liberals.
Since Barack Obama took office in 2009 race relations have gotten worse, not because whites have become more racist under Barack Obama, but because he , Eric Holder and other Democrats have fanned the flames of disaffection in Black communities across America. Adding to that disaffection is a sluggish economy. In fact we have had the slowest economic recovery since WWII under Barack Obama, which is, in part, BECAUSE of this President’s anti-business policies.
How has the Barack Obama Presidency helped Black people in America? Contrary to the “Hope” Barack Obama held out for them, they have not fared well. We need to look no further than a comparison of the latest unemployment rate between White-Americans, African-Americans, and Asian-Americans. According to the Barack Obama’s own Federal Bureau of Labor, the unemployment rate in January 2016 for Whites was 4.7%, for Asians it was 3.7%, but for Blacks it was 9.1%.

Now we hear foolish things coming from supporters of Hillary Clinton like, “There’s a special place in hell” for women who don’t vote for Hillary. How is it that Hillary’s gender will somehow translate into a benefit for all women if she is elected? It is the same anti-intellectual thought process that has disappointed so many Black people who thought Barack Obama would be their savior.
It is the Liberal-progressive politicians’ policies, their obsession with race, their anti-business attitudes and their cronyism that hurts the majority of Americans. While the rest of us suffer, they benefit in power and money. Just look at how much money Hillary and Bill Clinton have reaped in speaking fees from the big Wall Street banks. It may be legal, but it stinks like a dead fish and reveals clearly that Hillary is in the pocket of those banks. Contrary to her promises, she will not be looking out for the little people if she becomes President. She is a snake – forked tongue and dangerous.
*Actually Mr. Obama is half Black, half White.
