“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
- Alexander Hamilton. Spiritual father of #NeverTrump
The Private sector is improving, and more jobs becoming available for everyone. To simply blame the President for one ethnic not sharing that economic success. (That ironically shares a similar skin color) is erroneous, and at worst, dishonest.
This thread is funny... right wingers playing the race card to prove they are not racists and yet leave out rather critical information that actually goes a long way to prove that they do have a race problem.
Lets look at the states with the highest percentage black populations.
1. Mississippi.. GOP Governors since 2004.
2. Louisiana ... GOP Governors since 1996 with a 4 year break for a Democrat.
3. Georgia.. GOP Governors since 2003
4. Maryland.. Dem Governor since 2007, GOP before that.
5. South Carolina.. GOP Governor since 2003
6. Alabama.. GOP Governor since 2003
7. North Carolina.. Dem Governors
Point is that of the top 10, six of the states have had GOP governors at least the last half a decade, if not much longer. They also happen to be some of the poorest states with worst education standards and so on.
And yet the GOP blames Obama for the poor unemployment numbers among the black community... numbers that were also poor under Bush 2, Bush 1, and Reagan?.. but it is all Obamas fault.. because he is black or/and a Democrat?
Funny how when it comes to the economy, the GOP is all over that Texas and other red states have "great employment" creation because of their policies, and yet these same states in many cases have large black communities that are suffering high unemployment and yet that is Obamas fault, but the great job creation for white unemployed is not Obamas fault??
Then explain this... Texas has an unemployment number of 5.2% according to the numbers, where White unemployment is 3.9%.. but the black community in Texas is hurting with a 9.2% unemployment? Considering Texas has had a GOP governor for 2 decades plus, and the GOP has been calling it the "Texas miracle" and putting all the praise on themselves and their political leaders in Texas.. then why is the black unemployment in Texas almost 3 times the size of the white unemployment? That Obamas fault also?

Can't wait to see what the Black Community has to say should the President grant them all amnesty. My hope is they finally throw off the chains the liberal/progressive race baiting machine has had them shackled with for decades, and they seek their own future without them being told they can't have one.
Of course I could also throw in California, a single party state firmly in the hands of liberal/progressives for many many years. Highest poverty rate in the Nation, and unemployment in the Black communities in the double digits. I guess that would be your model?
Never Forget - Who you vote for counts. If you don't want a President who sees you as irredeemable and deplorable, the choice is clear.
The central problem for higher levels of unemployment and poverty in the inner city is kids having kids. This leads to absentee fathers, less education, higher crime, and just lower levels of opportunity in the community.
Yet the social conservatives, the ones right now complaining about Obama when it comes to high levels of black unemployment, have fought every attempt to reduce this:
Comprehensive Sex Education in school, they fight it, they only want Abstinence only Education.
Providing Contraceptives in Schools, they fight it with the absurd argument that kids won't have sex if you don't give them condoms.
Until you want to get with the program on actually reducing unplanned pregnancies and teen pregnancies in inner city communities, quite bitching about high levels of unemployment in those same communities.
