Many African-Americans
concerned about Obama’s
focus on immigrant rights

McClatchy Newspapers, by William Douglas and Franco Ordonez

WASHINGTON — No sooner did President Barack Obama and a group of senators separately outline proposals to revamp the nation’s immigration system than the phone lines on several African-American-oriented talk radio shows heated up with callers blasting the plans. “Amnesty,” complained Frankie from Maryland recently on the nationally syndicated “Keeping it Real with Al Sharpton.” (Snip) “Our issues are not being highlighted and pushed, and things like gay marriage and (immigration) are being pushed to the forefront,” the caller said. “Hispanics are effectively organized. For us not to be organized and for us not to hold our leadership accountable

Comments:
When you deal in special interest pandering politics, thisis what you get...with Al Sharpton et al stirring the pot.

The community is restless. He "owes" them:

FTA:

Bernard Anderson, an Obama supporter and a former assistant labor secretary during Bill Clinton’s presidency, recently told an African-American economic summit at Washington’s Howard University that African-Americans should no longer give Obama “a pass” on dealing with issues that directly impact their community.

“He is not going to run again for anything. He does not deserve a pass anymore,” Anderson said. “Let him not only find his voice but summon his courage and use his political capital to address racial inequality. He owes that to the African-American.”

Obama has the majority black support no matter what he does. He does not have to please them to get their vote. He must pander for the immigrant vote for the dem party. He must also make up phony womens´ issues to get the vote of uninformed, low information women voters.

Don´t worry minority voters, he got your vote and does not need you now. Shut up and get out of his way until the next election when the dems need your votes.

FTA: Some members of the Congressional Black Caucus are quietly seething because Obama hasn’t met with the 42-member group since May 13, 2011.

Why should he? An automatic 95% of the black vote means he doesn´t have to give you diddly-squat.

When a group can be relied upon to vote 95+% based solely on race or party, then don´t expect any favors. Votes are to be bought and the AA community has sold their votes as cheap as possible. However, the competition, Hispanics, have not reliably sold their votes. Thus, the Dems will sacrifice the AA community in order to buy Hispanic votes. It’s just good old fashion competition. If the AA community wants to now compete with illegals for the jobs available to them, then continue to sell the AA community votes for next to nothing. Oh, and playing the race card isn´t going to work on Illegals. They cdon´t care and feel tey are discriminated by AAs.

"Our issues"? One could puke.

"Immigrant rights"? One could puke.

"Address racial inequality"? Well, after I puke, I´ll ask Mr. Anderson a question or two. Explain where that "racial inequality" exists. If you refer to a racial group that often has higher unemployment and lower incomes than another racial group, maybe members of that first group too-frequently bring far fewer positives and far more negatives to employers? Maybe? Maybe some critical negatives are self-selected? Maybe another critical negative [let´s see... who´s on the right slope? who´s on the left slope?] cannot possibly be addressed by any gov´t policy? Maybe?

FTA: ...African-Americans who gave him 93 percent of their vote.... Some members of the Congressional Black Caucus are quietly seething because Obama hasn’t met with the 42-member group since May 13, 2011. Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-Fla. .... said the black caucus sent the White House the names of 61 potential candidates for positions in a second-term administration.... "Not one of that 61 was selected – not one"....

Let´s see -- a population segment acted stupidly, and is now unhappy about being treated as though stupid. I think that´s it. Alcee? H-e-l-l-o-o-o? [Alcee, stupid enough to get impeached and removed, is surprised he´s stupid enough to get fleeced. Heh, heh, heh.]

FTA - “Hispanics are effectively organized. For us not to be organized and for us not to hold our leadership accountable is disheartening.”

In other words, we want our piece of the pie. Division of the spoils of war. So that´s how it ends; a race to the bottom of the barrel for a country that was founded on a higher vision, that was once was a light to the world.

Obama is exotic, never raised in America, and has none of its values. So black, aka African Americans, can just get used to the fact that he does not give a d--- about you. Obama is interested in communism, climate change, immigration to perpetuate Obama power, and gay rights to legitimize his and Mooch´s marriage.

Blacks have insisted on following the victimology route courtesy of the sharptons, jacksons, and farrakhans. They consistently vote democrat, enabling the continuation of the eugenics program fostered by planned parenthood. They ensure their becoming a demographic of shrinking significance. Hispanics will dictate the future of this country. Blacks will not.

What´s an African American? Is that someone who used to live in Africa but is now a naturalized citizen? Also Africa is a continent and not a country and contains all different colors of people so how can this label apply only to black Americans and for that matter why are so many Americans buying into this fake deliberately racist divisive label?

So again I pose the question what is an African American? Can someone point out a prominent "African American" as an example?

As American citizens, black people should be highly ticked off, as illegal aliens are holding down millions of jobs in this country that black people could be doing when the black unemployment rate is the highest of any tribe in America, and Obama with his over the top pandering for Hispanic votes is facilitating all that.

Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. SOS. I have become thoroughly convinced Obama could line 500-1000 black children up and kill them in front of everyone; and he would still get 93+% of the black vote. It´s sick. It´s unfortunately what we are all up against.

And they can take their concern, blend it with a dollar and buy a cup of McDonald´s java. They voted in a monster and he does not give a scatological sample about their "concerns". Too bad (though hilarious) when LoInfo voters get the little bit of bad news they can understand about their voting selection.

Reply 23 is spot on. Blacks have been severely impacted by the illegal alien invasion. mexicans have taken jobs away from blacks. What´s more, the overwhelming supply of cheap laborers have driven down wages for unskilled and semi-skilled jobs which is demoralizing for blacks who can´t find work that pays a living wage. The descendants of slaves have paid the biggest price for our politicians corrupt open border policies. The concern expressed by African-Americans on this topic is 35 years too late.

And the Lord said "for all things give thanks..." Are the blacks aware what ´the war on poverty´ was all about? It was about trying to float the standard of living for blacks, to make them more equal by creating lower levels of achievement for them so they could ´more fairly´ compete. But have they? Trillions of dollars have been squandered on this ´war´ that cannot and will not be won because the objects of this fight want it all given to them with no effort on their part. Obama has continued helping by giving unemployment monies away for example, without anyone seeking employment...what a deal. Trillions spent with what results? Highest unemployment, highest illegitimate rate in the country with over 75% of ´fatherless´ babies and highest percentage rate of jailed felons. With nothing to crow about they support a black president with over 94% of their votes and can´t say or know why other than he is black. Now another ethnic group is getting rewarded for their votes with strong support and the black ´leadership´ wants to know ´where´s ours ?" How much more do you want? You are like used paper cups, no longer needed...you did your job now shut up and go away till you are needed again...feels good don´t it? By the way, where are the thanks for all you have already gotten?

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers. The bug forced emergency changes last week at major websites like Facebook (FB, Fortune 500), Google (GOOG, Fortune 500) and Yahoo (YHOO,

JACKSON, Wyo. – A slow-motion disaster continued unfolding in the Wyoming resort town of Jackson on Saturday, as a creeping landslide that split a hillside home threatened to swallow up more houses and businesses. The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last?

It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection with its look into tollway agency operations.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
