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

McClatchy Newspapers, by William Douglas and Franco Ordonez

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/12/2013 9:26:29 AM

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.

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?

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance. Yet his fellow golfers do not sound relieved. They do not act as if reprieved.

A 33-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after her vehicle struck a Los Angeles Police Department motorcycle officer from behind at a red light, leaving him pinned between two vehicles Saturday, officials said. The officer was waiting for the traffic light at Saticoy Street and Lankershim Boulevard (map) about 5:30 p.m. when an SUV rear-ended him, according to the LAPD. The officer was pinned between the SUV and the vehicle in front of him.

IN A major development in the search for MH370, Angus Houston has confirmed the Ocean Shield has detected signals consistent with aircraft black boxes, describing the lead as the most promising yet. Air Chief Marshal Houston called the development significant, saying “this is the most promising lead, probably in the search so far, it’s probably the best information we’ve had”. The search coordinator told reporters more signals have been detected by a towed pinger locator deployed by the Australian vessel Ocean Shield. “Today, I can report some very encouraging information which has unfolded over the last 24 hours,” he told

THE missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 may have flown around Indonesian airspace on the night it disappeared, in what may have been a deliberate attempt to avoid radar detection. CNN reported a senior Malaysian government source saying that the missing jet made the detour after it had left the range of Malaysian military radar. The latest details emerged as new satellite calculations put the likely location of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 in the same spot where Chinese patrol vessel Haixun 01 detected sounds coming from about 4,500m underwater on two consecutive days.

Thanks to Samsung, the White House may be saying sayonara to the selfie. The photograph Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz took last week of himself with Barack Obama might have been the last ever presidential selfie, a White House aide said Sunday. Ortiz took the selfie with Obama Tuesday during the team’s visit to the White House. The pic appeared spontaneous at the moment, but it was revealed a day later that the act, taken with Ortiz’s Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone, was actually a public relations stunt orchestrated by the Korean telecom conglomerate. “Maybe this will be the end of all

An eye-catching A.P. story, published Thursday, revealed that, in 2010, the United States Agency for International Development (U.S.A.I.D.) covertly deployed a social-media program in Cuba in the hope of bringing about a Cuban Spring. The network, called ZunZuneo, was offered to Cubans via the country’s mobile-phone network as a free text service, and attracted forty thousand subscribers before mysteriously ending operations in 2012. The contractors who ran the program are said to have concealed its U.S.-government origins via an offshore system of front companies and foreign servers, and to have collected data on subscribers’ “political tendencies” and “receptiveness,” among other

Not when the topic is the CIA’s use of enhanced interrogation techniques _ widely regarded as torture _ against detainees who were suspected terrorists.(Snip) Republicans saw the report as largely an indictment of a Bush-era policy, he said, and because the program is now defunct, it became easier to make political points.

A Chinese ship searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 detected a "pulse signal" in the southern Indian Ocean Saturday, but there was no evidence yet that it was linked to the missing plane, state media said. The signal picked up by the vessel´s black box detector had a frequency of 37.5kHz per second, the official Xinhua news agency said -- identical to the beacon signal emitted by flight recorders.

EVERETT, Wash. — As medical examiners painstakingly piece together the identities and lives of the people killed when a mudslide wiped out a small Washington community, a mystery troubles them. One of the 30 bodies found does not fit with descriptions on the missing persons list, which, as of Thursday included 15 people, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff´s Office. The only clue to the man´s identity is his gold molars, said Heather Oie, operations manager at the Snohomish County Medical Examiner´s Office. He might have been someone who was on the highway or going for a hike.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen.

Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir of her time in the Obama Administration will be released on June 10, according to a website for the book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Shuster, will cover key moments during her time as Secretary of State, a position she held from 2009 to early 2013. Clinton also shares her thoughts on how to “navigate the challenges of the 21st century,”according to the website. It will be her second memoir after 2003´s Living History. The publisher has not yet released a title or a design of the book’s sleeve, though its contents are highly anticipated in the period leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.
