President Obama, What Have You Done For Me Lately?

Many feel the president has neglected the African American community, but should he be black first, and president second?

 

Last week, BET began running an anti-Obama ad sponsored by Pivot Point, a conservative PAC. In the ad, two young African Americans ask, as Janet Jackson famously put it, “What have you done for me lately?” They criticize the president for cutting aid to black colleges, and say, “His support of gay marriage is a slap in the face for people of faith.”

Wayne Perryman, an African American, Washington-state-based pastor, worked with the PAC to create the ad.

Perryman feels that African Americans are blindly supporting Barack Obama, simply because he is black, and that they should not support the president in his bid for reelection because he has done little to address the specific needs of African Americans during his four years in office.

“Our communities are in deplorable condition. Sometimes I watch TV and weep,” says Perryman. “African Americans are so loyal to a party and a black man that they ignore the condition of their people. Everyone had hope that with this first black president our issues would be addressed, but [Obama] blatantly turned against specific things that blacks had requested.”

    Not a fucking thing for anybody. The whole point of liberalism is to be served by others, and have the “rich” pay for it. I (Mr. Obama) am living high on the hog, if you can’t figure out how to mooch, talk to Michelle.

    Go ahead and “eat your own”.
    I have nothing to add; Obama’s preacher says I’m going to hell solely because of the color of my skin, so I don’t have time to worry about your ‘authenticity’ issues and why you can’t get more welfare.
    No-longer my problem.
    Now be “free”!

    Outside of the racist, whitey-hating “trinity united church of Christ”, and his ‘job’ as a ‘community organizer’, in what way has the Won ever associated himself with blacks?

    He’s a fraud, you dumb bastards!
    He doesn’t want to associate himself with average black working stiffs. He’s ABOVE YOU!
    Wake up and smell the caviar!

    “African Americans are so loyal to a party and a black man that they ignore the condition of their people…”

    Well the phrase “their people” is what the problem is.

    I don’t help my neighbors because they are white, I do it because I should excpect it of myself, because I was raised that way.

    Perryman wants the black community and a black president to help them for the sole reason BECAUSE they are black.

    Show me a successful black person,
    and I’ll show you a person that has been accused of being an Uncle Tom.

    Wayne Perrman tells it like it is.
    Eminem knows more about the black community than Barack Obama.
    Obama wouldn’t even qualify for reparations, any slave blood he may have came from his momma’s side.
