    Rep. Cleaver: White President Could Be Pushed More Than What We Would Push Obama To

    Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Missouri) on getting something done about high black unemployment: "A white president, frankly, could be pushed a great deal more than we would push President Obama because nobody would accuse him or her of having partiality towards African-Americans. So its a tough spot and it also mean we still have a long way to go in terms of race relations in this country and the President has, I think, moved through these troubled waters about as well as any African-American could become the first black president."

    Right... So a black man gets a pas a white man would not. I'd love to see some white Representative say "We're harder on Obama about white unemployment because it's obvious he doesn't care about whites then we would a white President"

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yeah! I mean nobody has ever accused Obama of being biased towards black people...

    Man listen to what he is saying for crying out loud.

    The black community can not pressure Obama on black issues because as soon as he show any signs of helping the black community, Faux news and majority of the republicans would demonize him for favoring us. I mean they are already calling him the food stamp president which is insulting already.

    Simply put, He can't show support to the black community like Clinton and Bush did because it is a double standard and you know it.

    Rep Cleaver is saying that applying pressure on President Obama would not work because he is in a situation politically where he can't be seen doing things for us because the right wing media and the vast majority of republicans will spin it as "Obama having partiality toward us considering he is the first black president". Now that same pressure can be applied to a white president because that accusation would not stick.

    Minorities don't get free passes. This quote probably says it best:

    Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, "She doesn't have what it takes." They will say, "Women don't have what it takes." ~Clare Boothe Luce

    WTH !!!! Nobody is asking for a free pass. I get tired of people always saying when we want something address in our community, we are asking for a free pass. It is a fact that unemployment hit the black community harder than any other race. We just want to start a conversation to what can be done dilute it. We are not asking for food stamps like most republicans would think. We are asking for solutions. Why is our request so much different from the rest of the country.

    How did Obama get into Harvard Law School? How did his wife? How did she get into Princeton despite having mediocre grades at a public school

    How did you manage to get through a Yale tax law class without understanding what a tax refund is?
