Obama's Black Detractors

Why Obama's black critics are wrong - CNN.com


First, it should not be at all surprising. Black America is ideologically diverse, just like other communities. Moreover, as I document in "Sellout: The Politics of Racial Betrayal," there exists in black America a special anxiety about the loyalties of high achievers, especially when their success is largely dependent on whites and others who are not black. Every prominent black in a predominantly white setting faces, at one time or another, claims from fellow blacks that he or she is "selling out."

Obama: America can't 'wait 14 months' Second, Obama's black detractors receive a degree of attention in the news media that is far greater than their representativeness of black America or their influence within it.

The great bulk of black American voters -- upward of 90% -- supported Obama in 2008 and do so today. They do so because of his party affiliation, his liberal policy preferences, his identification with the African-American community (the offspring of an interracial couple, he calls himself black and married a black woman), his personal attractiveness -- he is uncommonly articulate, handsome, knowledgeable and gracious -- and the fact that with all of the added burdens attendant to his blackness, he was still able to climb the Mount Everest of American politics.

Well Prince Richard and some of his fox minions always makes the point that black people voted for and will vote for obama because of race....but how about the bolded section in the article? I agree with the bolded section as to why black people will support Obama over the alternative.......still.

If he identified with "with the African-American community" then the National Black Caucus wouldn't complain about him.

I think he does share your vision....he just got slapped in the face by reality. For example for healthcare..i still think he believes in a single payer system...but reality won't allow it to be implemented at this time.

If you believe in something, you at least put it on the table.

im not talking about healthcare, i dont really care about that, homie walking on people civil rights, dropping bombs like petals, and still talking about stimulus like the first couple worked.
 
Obama neva do jack shit for Black people, they voted for him just based on race. If you check it out, Black people agree more with Republican moral policies like anti-homosexual, anti abortion and so forth. Most of what Obama stands for they oppose but they vote him in based on skin colour.

Some top level economists have said and continue to say that the stimulus wasn't nearly as big as it should have been.
