Dr. Boyce: Al Sharpton, Ben Jealous Should No Longer Be Invited to the White House

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

Since President Obama was elected with 93% of the black vote, there is now a conversation regarding how to leverage unprecedented political support in order to receive the attention from the Obama Administration that such support deserves.  The Associated Press wrote about the matter this week, quoting Rev. Al Sharpton, NAACP President Ben Jealous and National Urban League President Marc Morial along the way.

“I think the president heard us loud and clear. The collective message was, ‘Let’s build on where we already are,’” said Rev. Al Sharpton.

Sharpton then continued to speak to the need to “help the black community” by fighting to support President Obama by averting the pending crisis on the fiscal cliff.

Ben Jealous was also quoted, saying the following:

“We need Republicans to think hard and to pull back from the cliff 98 percent of our families, who make up the bulk of this nation, from seeing our taxes being raised,” Jealous said.

Marc Morial took the conversation in a different direction.  Rather than simply repeating the agenda of the Obama Administration and pretending that it is the same as the black agenda, Morial actually spoke to the issues that affect the black community directly.  He spoke about a jobs plan for urban areas that have been hardest hit by the recession as part of the path to a full economic recovery.  While banks, corporations and white Americans have seen their economic condition improve a great deal over the last four years, due to direct capital injections from Washington, black Americans are facing unemployment rates that would be entirely unacceptable for any other group.

In the context of his request for a jobs program, Morial specifically stated that the programs should be implemented “with a special focus on those communities where unemployment is and remains stubbornly and persistently high.”

“We who represent the nation’s urban communities will demand a seat at the table in these discussions,” he also wrote in his letter.

Do you notice the difference in leadership here?  The first two men, Al Sharpton and Ben Jealous, sound like defacto employees of the Obama Administration, as if they are punching a time clock and picking up a check at the end of the day.  The easiest way to manipulate someone with a feeble mind is to give them your idea and make them think that it’s their own.  While Sharpton and Jealous are certainly intelligent men, their “special gifts” and validation from the White House have led them to dumb themselves down to the administration’s wishes, like an abused wife standing behind her man under any circumstances.  This is, quite honestly, just shameful and depletes both men of the credibility necessary to engage in legitimate leadership.

Morial, on the other hand, has served as nothing less than a textbook example of how to play the political game at the top.  Morial has preserved his access to the White House by not presenting himself as an adversary to a popular president.  At the same time, he’s never said anything to indicate that he is a water boy for the administration.  Morial has kept his agenda clear and non-partisan, reaching out to leaders from both major parties and all branches of government, with the expectation that the focus is going to remain on urban communities.  Morial doesn’t even force Barack to say the word “black” and has given him enough evasive language to allow him to help his most loyal constituents without worrying about what some bigot is going to think about it.

It saddens me to see our most powerful civil rights leaders bowing to a racist American power structure by giving Democratic leaders carte blanche to leave the black community in ruins.  It’s oddly ironic that nearly every word that comes out of the mouths of Sharpton and Jealous is in complete lockstep with whatever talking points they’ve received from Valerie Jarrett and the White House.   This is not leadership – this is followership, and Jealous has unfortunately tarnished the already fragile reputation of the NAACP by allowing his work for the president to override his interest in protecting African American people.

 I am not one to say that Sharpton and Jealous don’t deserve a seat at the table, but I can certainly say that they should not possess most of those seats.  These White House meetings with President Obama have as much credibility as a group of white, Republican managers gathering to plan Black History Month.  Their incentives are as polluted as the Hudson River, and the greatest victim of this high-level civil rights corruption is the African American community itself.  This is merely a replication of the kind of corruption that often occurs in some African countries, where well-paid dictators live a life of luxury by allowing large European corporations to extract resources from the people nearly free of charge.

When these meetings at the White House occur, they should include at least some of the following people:  Marc Morial, Rev. Jesse Jackson, Dr. Julianne Malveaux, Dr. Wilmer Leon and perhaps even Father Michael Pfleger.  Rev. Jackson’s 40 years of service cannot be erased by any president (black, white or bi-racial) and the White House decision to freeze out one of our most storied civil rights leaders is nothing short of the most blatant and disrespectful display of counter-productive cronyism.  The Obama Administration refuses to deal with Jesse Jackson because they don’t want to have to answer hard questions from a leader that wouldn’t so easily fit into their pockets.

Dr. Julianne Malveaux, as an MIT educated economist, has the expertise necessary to engage in serious conversations about black unemployment.   At least I speculate that she knows more about the topic than a preacher with no formal training in basic economics.  Dr. Wilmer Leon has taught classes on how the presidency works, and would therefore be able to make recommendations that are reasonable and fair to President Obama.  Father Michael Pfleger is a long-time friend of the Obama family, as well as Valerie Jarrett, and has shown a consistent commitment to solving problems that were previously deemed to be unsolvable (note that he single-handedly produced a significant reduction in gang violence by bringing the gangs together for a Peace Basketball Tournament in Chicago).

If the White House is going to gain any credibility in their alleged commitment to African American people, they have to take these cupcake meetings off the agenda and start doing things of real substantive value.  We tried the Sharpton-Jealous-Morial-Obama meetings over the last four years and black unemployment continued to grow to the crisis levels that they’ve reached today.  We’ve also seen no significant advances in the epidemics of mass incarceration or urban violence, proving beyond any reasonable doubt, that these meetings have been highly ineffective.  When one coaching staff can’t win games, you replace it with another.  We can’t afford to drag our feet while millions of families are suffering and children are dying in the streets.  It’s time for a civil rights mutiny.

The Obama Administration spent millions of dollars begging black people to stand in line and vote.  They asked us to have their backs and we put it on the line unlike any other demographic in America.  Now that we’ve shown the courage necessary to endure the political backlash of standing up for the White House to get another four years, it’s time for Obama and his team to return the favor.  The days of this one-sided relationship must come to an end and it’s time for this relationship to be one of mutual respect.  President Obama knows this himself, and I encourage him to do the right thing.

  1. Why is the central issue framed as invitations to White House meetings and invitations to inaugurations? I do not think people should care all that much about invitations to meetings/inaugurations and they don’t. Nothing is stopping any person or organization from meeting, formulating solutions and presenting these to the President and the nation. Share with us your suggestions for solving the problems you identify.

    • Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, then I’m just d**n stupid and deserve what I get. That’s what Obama thinks of foolish Blacks who voted him in a second time to give him another chance to FINISH THEM OFF.

      And let’s not forget the large number of rascist whites who voted him in, because they knew they could trust him to FINISH us off. It is the only reason they voted for him.

      Whites voting for Obama in large number should have been the biggest clue that he was no good for black people. Rednecks where I live would fight u for saying something bad about their boy and savior Obama.

      Obama claims he doesnt want to say the word “black) but needs rascist groups like the NAACP, and all the other special democratic funded black groups who do nothing bot get out the vote for democrats, and nothing for the people. Obama will never destroy the NAACP, Urban League, etc., because the democrats know that without them being available to deceive and lie to black voters they’d never get their candidates in office.

      The NAACP has been claiming for decades to be advancing black americans. If they were doing even a little bit of good for the masses, we’d have our poverty rates at the same level as whites by now.

      EVERYONE SHOULD STOP BUYING NAACP MEMBERSHIPS, OPERATION PUSH MEMBERSHIPS AND LET THEM GO OUT OF BUSINESS. THEY ONLY INCITE RASCISM AND LEAD BLACK VOTERS DOWN THE PATH OF DESTRUCTION. THAT IS THEIR ONLY REASON FOR EXISTENCE.

      Many blacks where I live are already getting a backlash by whites who didn’t support obama. Minorities are getting fired left and right. The white women and gays who elected Obama will not be touched because they know that Obama will come down hard on anyone who discriminates against their groups.

      Heaven help blacks who are forced out of their jobs, cant get another one because of discrimination, and cant get on welfare either, when the republicans put their foot down and say ‘THERE IS NO MONEY FOR FOOD STAMPS, SECTION 8, ETC.” The republicans will feel justified, and say that is what blacks voted for. I did my best to warn them that a holocaust would occur if obama got a second term. Dr. Boyce did his best. Foreign blacks might as well go home.

      • Sheila and Other Like-minded Posters–

        You are absolutely correct in addition to Dr. Watkins and several other fully awake African Americans regarding their comments though not including the nothingness noise of clueless big corporate business Verizon’ financial services mouthpiece, Ms. Christine Hartzog-Meekins. In fact, not only is the overall long term unemployment and economic status of African Americans much worse than what is being reported by white-owned mainstream media organizations, but African Americans with and without higher education are deliberately not being hired for available jobs having nothing to do with their skills or education, are deliberately being discriminated against by the vast majority of America’s employers who are white and are overwhelmingly first hiring other whites and non-African American native minorities (Latinos, Asians, etc…). The economic and social conditions in America for African Americans, for blacks in Africa, and poor people worldwide are going to get far, far worse than most can even begin to imagine and all are sitting ducks. Equally important is the fact of all white America’s highly useful black pawns including 1/2 white Barack Obama, 1/2 white Benjamin Jealous, high white-blooded Marc Morial, 1/2 white young turk master politician Newark, NJ Mayor wannabe Govenor Cory Booker, the 1/2 Lt. Govenor of MD, the former 1/2 white D.C. Mayor Fenty thank-God-blacks-got-rid-of-him-but-way-too-late, and also other 1/2 white/black and non-biracial black politicians in America nor the Congressional Black Caucus. None of them are going to do anything at all tangible to stop or reverse the fast upcoming onslaught of deliberately escalated out of upper-income, middle-income and working-class into huge new black poverty populations joining pre-existing black poverty in America rife with anger that will become deep depression, despair, fury, poor health, sickness, riots, and ultimately blood in the streets, death, and mass incarcerations. Why will the black politicians nationwide not do anything? Because they really can’t and if they actually seriously tried to do so, they and members of their families will be investigated, hounded, scandalized, bounced, unemployed, blacklisted, bombed, and every which banged six-feet into the ground and/or also into the upcoming sunami of massive black poverty. So, black politicians perform just enough believable lip service and window-dressing to appear as though they are working hard, can, and will achieve valuable tangible, if not priority results, for the people. Black politicians are not in charge. They know it, those who are in charge know it, and the only ones who do not realize it are way too many millions of black people in America and in Africa. All have no real idea of who is really running America and the world, what is really going on, where those people are, what they are doing and what is going to happen, how and when. Black people have no clue of what the long game plan really is nor understand that black politicians are going along to get along hoping to be allowed to do what little they can and that they and their families will be spared. Who runs the world and controls world commerce, affairs, and the leaders of all world nations? Principally supernatural powers of evil together with the human Bilderberg Group, The Vatican, U.S. Council of Foreign Relations, and Trilateral Commission followed by back-up from their boys/girls of USDOJ CIA/FBI,USDOD, NATO, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Federal Reserve Bank, Wall Street, largest American and international corporations worldwide, and the richest people in the world. There are two places in America of several that black people who can should visit and see to achieve if not full quick understanding of the long game plan in a nutshell certainly way more than a mere inkling of what it really is all about. The plan is and has always been widescale. Take a quick trip to visit, see, and thoroughly read “The Georgia Guidestones” in Elberton, Georgia. Next, go and visit the Denver Airport and spend time thoroughly viewing the massive wall art murals throughout and also see the symbols on the marble floors. Then, research and fully read about The Committee of 300, High Knights and Knights of Malta, Knights of Columbus, and Protocols of The Learned Elders of Zion. As for what African Americans can and ought to do, but millions likely will not is first to rapidly learn and live the Word of Almighty God in obedience and in daily pray to Him asking for His mercy, guidance, and protection, second to rapidly unite in active moral, spiritual, social and economic solidarity, and third to rapidly spread as much important knowledge and survival guidance and help if possible to as many other black people in America, Carribean, and in Africa as humanly possible. That’s it. Other than this, also know and understand as well that the only unbought, unbent, strongest, unafraid and morally worthy leader of black people in America period is Minister Louis Farrakhan.

        Peace!

        • Louis Farrakan you got to be one of his fool followers. Who else would vouch for that d**n charlatan who has been sitting idly by, watching his Southside Chicago neighborhood be over ran by drug lords and those who contribute to the delinquency of minors. He is one of the problems, along with Jesse jackson, and all the other old negro leaders who said nothing, and did nothing until the WHITE man Bill Oreilly exposed to the world the suffering of black children under 18, women and seniors.

          God doesn’t listen to fools who AGREED to vote for widespread homosexuality, baby killing and everything else they SOLD THEIR SOULS TO THE DEVIL, JUST TO HAVE A BLACK FACE IN THE WHITE HOUSE. Too d**n late. Decent whites dont want to hear their pleas either.

          Cowards in leadership have no d**n place. Ask Malcom, and Ask Dr. King. Cowards deserve to die a thousand deaths, with their selfish low life azzes. Real leaders are RISK TAKERS – NOT SELFISH COWARDS.

          Cori Booker is a RISK TAKER AND A LEADER WHO DESERVES ALL OF MY RESPECT.

          Anyone with even a little wealth just might survive this thing if they pick the corporations that will thrive under obama – like insurance companies. Wish I could identify another industry to invest in. It is going to be the only way to make money with low interest rates on Cd/savings.

      • @Shelia…you got all that mouth, why don’t you run for something and change the world? People like you always complaining but not doing anything to make positive change..justshutup…pleeeease!

        • I have my reasons. You dont have to run for an office to be a leader. Everyone can affect change right where they are in their work place, in their community, and in their churches. But paid fools with BIG MEDIA VOICES, CLOUD AND CONFUSE THE AVERAGE PERSON. Do I have the power to get them off the air? NO. BUT I CAN ADVISE EVERYONE WITHIN MY HEARING VOICE TO TURN OFF THE TV. I CAN DO THAT. YOU CAN DO THAT, AND IF EVERYONE DOES THAT, THEY WILL BE TAKEN OFF THE AIR.

The America government and big corporations have for a while been quitely and rapidly building more prisons in great anticipation of them being filled with hordes of angry and riotous new and pre-existing long term unemployed, revolutionary, radical and poor people. The USA is quitely readying long ago previously closed military bases and other locations. Why will black politicians nationwide not do anything? Because they really have no real power and can’t and if they actually seriously tried to do so, they and members of their families will be investigated, hounded, scandalized, bounced, unemployed, blacklisted, bombed, and nullified in every which way either banged six-feet into the ground or also fast into the upcoming deliberate sunami of escalated new and massively increased black poverty. So, black politicians perform just enough believable lip service and window-dressing to appear as though they are working hard, can, and will achieve valuable tangible, if not priority results, for the people.

The vast majority of black people in America and Africa are not paying any attention to the strategic tactics completely detrimental to their prosperity and basic survival long underway and much that is quite visible right in front of them. There are two places in America of several in America and Europe that black people who can should visit and see to achieve if not full quick understanding of the long game plan in a nutshell certainly way more than a mere inkling of what it really is all about. The plan for both continued and escalated elimination and subjugation of black people in America, Carribean, and Africa is now and always been widescale. Unfortunately, black people in America, Carribean, and Africa are easily oppressed because they believe whatever the overwhelmingly white-controlled USA government, politicians, education system, judicial system, banks, media organizations, television programs, movies, music, and advertisement industries want them to believe. Take a quick trip to visit, see, and thoroughly read “The Georgia Guidestones” in Elberton, Georgia. Next, go and visit the Denver Airport and spend time thoroughly viewing the massive wall art murals throughout and also see the symbols on the marble floors. Then, research and fully read about The Committee of 300, High Knights and Knights of Malta, Knights of Columbus, and Protocols of The Learned Elders of Zion. Also, understand that HIV/AIDs was in fact deliberately created by white American and European scientists and deliberately introduced by them into Africa and America specifically to genocidedly wipe out and reduce the Black Race population (Read Dr. Francis Cress Welsing’ book The Isis Papers), which I knew long before reading Dr. Welsing’ book. Also, understand that rich white American government and private sector leaders together with those in European countries and their huge corporations are again carving up and re-colonizing Africa following covert daily wiping out of millions of African people via HIV/AIDs coupled with U.S./NATO/Europe led deliberate destruction and destabilization of the African Union (uniting of all African state countries) movement by the leaders of 54 African countries to create a united Africa via U.S./NATO/Europe paid instigation of false civil uprising in and bombing of oil rich Libya specifically to take out and murder Qadaffi who strongly fully supported, participated in, and financially supported the African Union and via paid instigation of tribal civil war genocide in Rawada and Sudan, paid economic and civil destabilization, paid subversions, and paid false civil uprisings in Somolia, Congo, Mali, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Syria and so on, paid support and installations of certain politicians as leaders of key African countries and not for the benefit of the people of those countries, and the installation of AFRICOM (U.S. and European military bases) in Africa. The same goes on in Black America in numerous ways ranging from via white America’s daily delivery of white supremacy subliminal and overt psychological warfare indoctrination of white domination and superiority beginning with public school education of black children daily taught about white American and European history of leaders, conquorers, european domination of black people as slaves and up from slavery to white America’s financial and political control of the public school education system regarding curriculums, what subjects / levels of courses taught, and education materials available, control of available employment and hiring, control of military and genocidal science chemical, viral, and bacterial biological warfare programs, control of judicial system, law enforcement, banks, media organizations, entertainment industry, advertising, food/health/medicine industries, control of illegal drugs and alcohol, and control of the prison industrial complex in tight partnership Europe/Vatican/Bilderberg Group. Black children, youth, and teenagers are have since black people were first brought to America historically been taught in school all about the evolution and exploits of white America and Europe and nothing at all about Africa regarding any truth or thorough knowledge as if the huge continent of Africa and her accurate ancient history to which European knowledge and development across the board is directly tied is historically irrevelant and does not exist just as her black people have not massively contributed to the great knowledge and wealth of European, American, and world civilization. Lack of true and thorough historical knowledge of self and deliberate cover up and deceit about such of tremendous great importance is truly where the real problems of black children, adults, families, and lack of black unification really begins and from which all other negative, destructive psychological emotions, behaviors, actions flow. How can any black person on earth believe this is good or healthy for black children or the Black Race? It absolutely is not and is also long term psychologically damaging and by deliberate design. Any race of people not knowing their own true history or roots is a race of people easily indoctrinated, deceived, confused, self-hating, infiltrated, divided, diluted, forever largely overwhelmed, overtaken, and suspended in an idle twilight zone of ignorance to be easily daily conquored and destroyed en mass. As for what Black American and Black Africa ought to do, but far too many millions likely will not to save and reverse en mass troubles and decline of every kind is to first return to and rapidly learn and live the Word of Almighty God in obedience and in daily pray to Him asking for His mercy, guidance, and protection. Second, to rapidly unite together in active moral, spiritual, social and economic solidarity to actively plan survival and prosperity by any means necessary and acceptable to Almighty God. And third, to rapidly spread as much important knowledge and survival guidance and help if possible to as many other black people in America, Carribean, and in Africa as humanly possible. That’s it. Last, black people need to and should also know as well that the only unbought, unbent, strongest, unafraid, and worthy spiritual and moral leader of black people in America always speaking truth to change that more black people listen to and overwhelmingly support en mass is Minister Louis Farrakhan.

        Peace!

        • stop promoting your d**n charlatan farrakan who did nothing and said nothing and watched idly while drug lords took over chicago. sometimes i wonder if the negro leaders are profiting from all this murder, drugs and madness.

        • Even the minister was bought. How much money did he take from Kadafi. Even Kadafi`s own people did not want be bothered with him. I wonder why. I do not need leadership. If we do, it needs to be the young persons voices we need to listen too.

          • True Pat. True. And to think even Mommar Khadaffi didn’t want to be bothered with that caribbean born and bred c**n farrakhan, who stole the Honorable Elijah Muhammed Organization right from under the nose of his son.

        • By the way DAD, people of color have no one to blame but themselves. Europeans represents less than 20% of the world population and rule 100% of the people. Ask yourself why did people allow this to happen. Do not blame them; blame yourselves. As you could see in the last election, it proved that the 2% is not guarantee to always rule. Just ask Willard and his wife. 80% of the world have allowed these people to rule far too long and now the whole world is rebelling and that is a good thing.

          • If Blacks are such great rulers, why are all these d**n africans and caribbeans, and Asians dieing to get to rascist america or europe!!! WHY??? Why aren’t black americans going back to the rich african continent, instead of staying here to fight with the white man????

            Blacks need to stop lieing to themselves. Their actions say that the white man’s world is better than the yellow, red, and black worlds that men of color rule. at least white men aren’t cutting off our hands for stealing a candy bar? d**n!

          • WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD ANY WOMAN OF COLOR WANT TO LIVE UNDER BLACK/BROWN/RED OR YELLOW MAN RULE????

            DON’T WE ALL KNOW THAT THE WHITE MAN TREATS WOMEN WITH MORE RESPECT THAN ANY MAN ON THE PLANET????

            I DONT WANT TO BE COVERED FROM HEAD TO TOE
            I DONT WANT TO ANSWER TO A MAN FOR BUYING A BOTTLE OF NAILPOLISH
            I WANT TO BE FREE TO WORK IF I WANT

            WAKE UP COLORED WOMEN!!!!

    • SO TRUE… and I think that MORE Black leaders, community activists, etc. should seek to have meetings with Pres. Obama. WHY NOT? Other groups do. Whatever the problems are or the demands…take them to him. But I also think it is also UNFAIR to Pres. Obama to overlook the awful acts of obstruction that the Republicans have put up since the day he was elected.

      Pres. Obama has made many efforts to help the Black community…including his Educational Initiative, funds for Black colleges, and other actions. REPUBLICANS have fought him on everything.

      REPUBLICANS blocked almost every “jobs bill”…and other programs, services, and anything that might help Blacks, Latinos, etc. REPUBLICANS have shown and stated that they don’t want to offer anything at all to help people…the unemployed, children, the elderly…or even THE POST OFFICE. Republicans have attacked the Black members of the cabinet…Eric Holder and Susan Rice… for no reason. I am just saying… put the blame where it belongs.

      REPUBLICANS have ridiculed the problem of “global warming” — while it is the people in inner cities and developing countries who get the worst part of the weather disasters. Just remember HURRICANE KATRINA and the big monster SANDY.

      • Sorry but you’re dumber than a post.

        When a black college graduate has no promise of employment, a bunch of school debt he’ll never pay off, NO ONE WINS BUT THE WHITE TEACHER.

        republican mitt romney promised to be the president of 100% of america, went to the NAACP mtg, and said that he promises good jobs, you ignorant a-hole. stop your d**n lies.

        obama gave the STATE’S the right to cut off your d**n govt check as soon as he got in office. the republicans are the ones in your state who have let you keep your d**n check the last few years, but they’re hopping mad at your dumb azz now, and you will be cut off, and they’re not going to give u a job, and so u better prepare for homelessnes, because you told God that you’d sell your soul to the devil just to have a negro in the white house who promotes major sins like being gay, and killing babies. YOU VOTED FOR THAT BISH. DONT EXPECT GOD TO HEAR U. HE WON’T!

        Fool natural disasters have been occuring since the days of Noah’s Ark. Only a fool would let people starve today, because he BELIEVES that 100 years from now global warming might destroy the earth. Obama chose to give big shot white scientist high paying jobs on global warming, rather than give your po azz $30K job a year.

        • People go to college to be educated to take care of themselves not to get a job. That is what is wrong with AA. We have always used our creativity to survive. We have gotten lazy. MAKE YOU OWN LIVING. We will support your business. I can not even find a black owned answering service, or spreading company to service my business. Where are you?

          • duh??? just maybe when obama gave that $60 million to every minority business EXCEPT black american businesses, just maybe those same foreigners used that money to create a hostile business

            climate (blocking black american business owners storefronts with big trucks so that people cannot see it from the street, calling in false complaints to get black american businesses shut down by the city, harrassing customers of black american businesses, brainwashing old negroes to support them and abandoning their american stores with their WE BLACK too con).

            I have witnessed this with my own eyes, ears. The haters and devil worshippers took over, and sent humble black american business owners packing and some were even murdered. That’s how they move in and take over all the shopping district.

      • Umm…Obama had a democrat-led Senate and House for two years. He could have gotten anything through…oh wait…he did. He pushed the “Affordable Care Act” instead of dealing with unemployment. As for Republicans blocking things…that is the IDEA of a two party/two house system. Checks and balances.

      • ABOUT SUSAN RICE…She is NOT attacked for no reason

        by BAR executive editor Glen Ford

        Susan Rice is a woman of ghastly accomplishments: suppressor of the facts on genocide in Congo, and chief U.S. warmonger in Africa. Yet African American politicians rush to her defense, as a role model for young Blacks, especially women.

        The invasion of the Democratic Republic of Congo by U.S. allies Rwanda and Uganda, in 1996, set in motion a genocide that left six million Congolese dead. Another wave of mass killings now looms with this month’s capture of Goma, an eastern Congolese city of one million, by “rebels” under Rwandan and Ugandan control. “People need to be clear who we are fighting in the Congo,” said Kambale Musavuli [7], of Friends of Congo. “We are fighting western powers, the United States and the United Kingdom, who are arming, training and equipping the Rwandan and Ugandan militaries.” The main player in suppressing information on Congo’s neighbors’ role in the ongoing genocide, is U.S. ambassador to the UN Susan Rice.

        Rice has fought a two-front battle to protect Washington’s murderous clients, delaying publication of a UN Group of Experts report on Washington’s clients’ depredations in Congo, and at the same time subverting efforts within the State Department to rein in Uganda and Rwanda. Last week, Rice blocked [8] the UN Security Council from explicitly demanding that Rwanda immediately cease providing support to M23 rebels who vowed to march all the way to Kinshasa, the Congolese capital.

        Susan Rice has abetted the Congo genocide for much of her political career. Appointed to President Bill Clinton’s National Security Council in 1993, at age 28, she rose to assistant secretary of state for African affairs in 1997 as Rwanda and Uganda were swarming across the eastern Congo, seizing control of mineral resources amid a sea of blood. She is known to be personally close to Rwanda’s minority Tutsi leadership, including President Paul Kagame, a ruthless soldier trained at the U.S. Army’s Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, and mentored by Ugandan strongman (and Reagan administration favorite) Yoweri Museveni, who is believed to have pioneered the use of child soldiers in modern African conflicts.

        “Rice said not a word about ethnic cleansing and racial pogroms against black Libyans and sub-Saharan African migrant workers.”

        On the outside during the Bush years, Rice became a fierce advocate of “humanitarian” military intervention in Africa, urging air and sea attacks on Sudan and championing the U.S.-backed Ethiopian invasion of Somalia, in 2006. A senior foreign policy advisor on Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign team, Rice made it no secret she hoped to be named secretary of state. As UN ambassador, she is the administration’s top gun on Africa, the focus of her outsized aggressions. Rice is widely credited with convincing Obama to launch NATO’s bombing campaign for regime change in Libya. She parroted false media reports that Muammar Gaddafi’s troops were raping Libyan women with the aid of massive gulps of v****a, refusing to back down even when U.S. military and intelligence officials told NBC news “there is no evidence that Libyan military forces have been given v****a and engaging in systematic rape against women in rebel areas.” Yet, Rice said not a word about ethnic cleansing and racial pogroms against black Libyans and sub-Saharan African migrant workers, including the well-documented erasure of the black city of Tawergha [9].

        Susan Rice’s “humanitarian” instincts, like her boss’s, are highly selective – so much so, that a genocide equal to or greater than the n**i’s liquidation of European Jewry is invisible to her. More accurately, Rice labors mightily to render the genocide in Congo invisible to the world, suppressing release or discussion of reports on Rwanda and Uganda’s crimes.

        “Rice labors mightily to render the genocide in Congo invisible to the world.”

        The first document, a “Mapping Report,” described human rights violations in the Democratic Republic of Congo from 1993 through 2003. Finally published by the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in October of 2010, after long delays, the document specifically charges Rwandan troops with engaging in mass killings “that might be classified as crimes of genocide [10].” The more recent report by a UN Group of Experts concludes that M23, the Congolese “rebel” group that captured Goma, is actually “a Rwandan creation [11],” embedded with Rwandan soldiers that take their orders from Paul Kagame’s military. Uganda also supports M23.

        Susan Rice, as an energetic protector and facilitator of genocide, should be imprisoned for life (given that the death penalty is no longer internationally sanctioned). But of course, the same applies to her superiors, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. One would think that the Congressional Black Caucus would be concerned with the threat of a second wave of mass killings in Congo. Not so. A Google search fails to reveal a word of complaint from the Black lawmakers about genocide in Congo or suppression of documentation of genocide – or much of anything at all about Africa since the death of New Jersey Rep. Donald Payne, ranking member of the House Subcommittee on African Affairs, in March of this year.

        “One would think that the Congressional Black Caucus would be concerned with the threat of a second wave of mass killings in Congo. Not so.”

        Instead, incoming Congressional Black Caucus chair Marcia Fudge, of Cleveland, held a press conference with female Caucus members to defend Rice, “a person who has served this country with distinction,” from Republican criticism of her handling of the killing of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya. “We will not allow a brilliant public servant’s record to be mugged to cut off her consideration to be secretary of state,” said Fudge.

        In the Congressional Black Caucus’ estimation, Rice’s “record” as chief warmonger in Africa and principal suppressor of the facts on genocide in Congo makes her a role model for African Americans, especially young Black women.

        Her relationship to the women of Congo is more problematic. Said Kambale Musavuli, of Friends of Congo, which works tireless on behalf of victims of mass rape in eastern Congo: “Why should you want to help a Congolese woman who is raped, when your tax money is supporting the ones that are doing the raping? That’s a contradiction”

        In the Age of Obama, the Black American relationship to Africa is suffocating from such contradictions.

    • HIV is synthetic. It has been developed over a number of years and it has an affinity for people of color. What the science and medical evidence concludes is that the HIV enzyme seeks out a receptor site in the blood of the Black genome. The receptor site is the CCR5 Delta 32+ (positive) gene that all people of color have. In the same sense, on the other end of the spectrum, is the 15 percent Caucasian population of the world, which is CCR5 Delta 32-(negative) gene. That means that under no circumstances, whether HIV came through the air, intravenous drug usage or any form of s****l activity, would the virus be transferable in Caucasian sector of the world’s population, which is basically of northern European descent.

      It is speculated by some experts that, in a worse case scenario, 85 percent of the world’s population could potentially perish under these designer viruses and designer synthetic biological agents. What we’re looking at here—because of this identified gene of the Black genome, this CCR5 Delta32+ (positive)—we are potentially looking at the eradication of all people of color.The bible states “My people perish for lack of knowledge. The true devil doesn’t wear red tights, a cape with horns protruding from his forehead instead, the devil incarnate are diabolical Caucasian scientist (men and women) in white lab coats.

    • @Obed … of all these postings…some very negative. The nasty, foul, ugly comments are not going to improve our situation. I agree with you. People should get their ideas and proposals on paper and take them to the President. Define what the problems are…and any suggestions you have for solving them. If you are concerned about our public schools, offer suggestions for solving the problems. If you are upset over the PRISON SYSTEM…draw up some plans and proposals for changing it. Do like Frederick Douglass, Mary McCleod Bethune did…and many other leaders of the past — take it to the White House…and to your Senators, Reps, officials, etc.

  2. True. Look at all these clowns presenting the White House with “secession petitions” What is the “black agenda” anyway?

    • they want to secede from the union, so that they can independently retain their own tax base, to help their own white people to survive the destruction that is to come.

  3. …….right underneath this latest b#tchfest by Monsieur Boyce, there is an ad from Syracuse University playing the “pity violin”.
    lol

    Your hypocrisy and victimhood is mind boogling and with your constant race based b#tching, I onder how long until Syracuse cans you.

    A “preacher with a perm” isn’t qualified to talk about economics (agreed), but a “preacher whose also a philandering and stereotypical black baby daddy” is? Talk bout double standards. Anyway neither of them are qualified to talk about anything except jewsih fairy tales and the other people you mentioned would be hired by the administration if they had anything of susbstance to add.

    Always advocating for “job plans” but can’t create a job to save their lives. You “public intellectuals” are nothing but “public imbeciles”.

    • Sharpton has been in political circles for decades. He is definitely qualifited to be a consultant, if he is unbridled by the obama administration. His hair has nothing to do with anything. His hair looks better than most, especially them nasty dreadlocks.

      d**n near all of our intelligent black men know how to create jobs, but they are too d**n worried about offending other minority groups to save their own people. Before the arabs, mexicans, foreign blacks were given business lessons, and came in with their 3rd world ruthless takeover mentality, we have large numbers of black beauticians, barbers, BBQ restaurants, Soul Food restaurnts, nightclubs, Mom and Pop stores, small grocery stores, and child care centers, ALL RAN BY BLACk AMERICANS WELL. BILLIONS WERE CREATED BY THOSE BUSINESSES.

      Somewhere during the Bush administration, and with Obama giving $60 million in small business loans to 3rd world illegal aliens, we saw all of the black and white american businesses FLEE the 3rd world shopping districts created by the loans OBAMA GAVE THEM. ALL OF THEIR LICENSES SHOULD BE TAKEN BACK AND WHEN INVESTIGATIONS COMPLETED, ALL OF THEM SHOULD BE PUT OUT OF BUSINESS. We dont need that d**n tight azz african hair braiding breaking off our hair, spicy azz jerk chicken to hurt our stomachs, and most of the rest of the mess they sell.

      Deporting illegal aliens would free up millions of jobs. That’s how you create a job.

      And kicking all them d**n foreigners out of our cabs, and restoring our american drives is another way.

      I felt confident Romney was going to do that for the American people. Let’s see if Obama is man enough to do right by AMERICANS.

      • Shelia, you did not do your homework. This president has sent more illegal persons that any prez even. It is the legal high tech person who are taking our jobs.

        • Actually I do that. I know someone who works in immigration, but he needs to send a lot more packing. There are still HUGE numbers of them here. That is one thing I can give him credit for, so I have to apologize for that.

  4. lmao……….the poster William Easely sums up the absurd thought process behind this constant b#tching.
    To quote him…
    “Number one on the agenda is establishing an agenda. What exactly is it that we want?”

    lol, I am black but I d**n sure don’t consider myself part of the “WE”, because it seems “WE” consists of morons who can’t think their way out of a box and need civil rights advocates whose certification expired decades ago to speak form them.

    Number black agenda, get a freaking education and not some frivolous degree like “African American Studies” like “Dr” marc Lamont Hill…. another of those “public intellectuals….lol

    • If only it were that simple Martian. Politics plays a HUGE part in every facet of our lives. Tons of laws have been written and still being written to support the agenda of the moment. In my young days Education WAS THE KEY TO SUCCESS. In today’s political climate most WITH EDUCATION are being told, “YOU ARE OVERLY QUALIFIED.”

      All this talk about education today is to trap blacks into high student debt they will never pay off when they cant get jobs in their field of study, education keeps whites who own the schools rich in govt money, and education keeps white professors employed. Real Talk.

      The Black Agenda is no different from the White Agenda

      Decent Jobs
      Freedom from discriminatiion
      Police protection
      Good Schools
      A Good Child welfare system that protects children from abusive parents
      Help for our poor single mothers and children
      Adequate public transporation

      EVERYTHING THAT WE HAD AND TOOK FOR GRANTED BEFORE REPUBLICAN BUSH AND CLOSET REPUBLICAN OBAMA TOOK OFFICE – THAT’S ALL WE WANT

  5. Why are so call black leaders stating that we need to “help the black community” by averting this so call fiscal cliff. Double digit unemployment and mass incarceration has already push many blacks over the cliff a long time ago. Gays, white women, Latino are sticking to the issues of their prospective communities so should black leaders.

    • The “cliff” is when they cut the unemployed off of unemployment, do away with section 8, cut off welfare checks and food stamps. However, I cant see rich White folks wanting that to happen.

      RICH WHITE FOLKS MAKE BILLIONS ON THEIR DELAPIDATED RENTAL PROPERTIES WHEN THEY GET SECTION 8 MONEY.

      GROCERY STORES DEPEND ON FOOD STAMPS TO SURVIVE.

      WHITE OWNED MOTELS ARE HOUSING HOMELESS PEOPLE AND GETTING HUGE GOVT MONEY

      EVEN WHEN BLACKS DONT WORK, WHITE FOLKS GET RICH OFF OF THEM. ONLY THE WHITE FOOLS WITH NO MEANS TO MAKE MONEY OFF OF POOR BLACKS COMPLAIN ABOUT WELFARE

      • Shelia there is a cure, buy descent rental for section eight, get a trucking company to deliver food and maybe a grocery store too. You can take advantage of these programs just as other people do. Who is stopping you? On top of that, you can hire your our people. This will help lower our unemployment rate , so we are not begging for jobs.

        • Listen dirty ho. Could the answer be that local govts wont pass my house for inspection because of discrimination? Could it be that local govt wont grant me a license? AND MF COULD IT BE THAT THE DIRTY BLACK AZZ HEADED FEDERAL GOVT DEPT OF JUSTICE DOES NOTHING THESE DAYS TO ENFORCE MY CIVIL RIGHTS???

          COULD THAT BE HINDERING ME DIRTY DUMB BISH???

          TREYVON MARTIN IS DEAD BECAUSE OF HOUSING DISCRIMINAION. SOMETHING THAT LOCAL GOVTS DO NOTHING ABOUT, AND SINCE OBAMA GOT IN OFFICE, BLACKS GET NO HELP – NONE!!! KISS MY BLACK AZZ

    Dr Boyce “attack dog” I have no interest in your “carnival barking”. You have no leverage in the black community just idle chatter. I appreciate Ben Jealous, Mark Morial, and Rev Sharpton. At least they are at the WH table communicating to President Obama. Why don’t you focus your “carnival barking” on ways to alleviate some of the tragic problems in our community that lead so many of us to end up in the Prison Industrial Complex i.e. murder, illiteracy, alcoholism, robbery, drug addition, women abuse, child abuse, not taking care of our children….. Until you start addressing personal responsibilty within our community your just a “carnival barking” jokester!! Also although 93% of the black community supported President Obama, 97% of our women supported him. The black women get it, you don’t!!!!

    • I agree. Boyce attacks the President regularly and probably wants West and Smiley to represent the Black Agenda.

      • Thank you!! The truth is the light of the world.

        • The Black Agenda is no different from the White Agenda

      • You’re too dumb to know a hero when u see one. That is why black america is in shambles today.

  7. Sir, you show your color by mentioning bi-racial. Jesse Jackson does need to be in those talks either. If POTUS granted all of our agenda – you think it would be that easy? Black on Black crime? Our l**t for the American Dream? The abuse we heap on our children? No sir, we need to answer our agenda first.

    • u stupid. EVERY BLACK PERSON’S AGENDA SHOULD BE TO MAKE OBAMA REPRESENT US, OR STOP MAKING US PAY TAXES TO BE USED FOR EVERYONE BUT US.

  8. Now and not later is action. We don’t know who will be president when President Obama leaves. So we Blacks should not start whining on the side now. I am certain President Obama will accept meetings with Al Sharpton and Ben Jealous to address Black community problems. He has done so several times during his first term and I am sure he will do so during in his 2nd term. However, when they meet the President, they should have a clear list issues and recommendations how to address those issues. Michelle Obama is also on both sides. Michelle is ultimate adviser to President Obama. However, we should remember being President of US is not easy. President Obama has to deal with both domestic and foreign matters. While we know more about domestic issues, we cannot predict on foreign issues. They come sporadically. We didn’t predict Libya issue or the latest Israel and Hamas issue. Foreign issues easily disrupt any President focus on domestic problems. Of course the Black community problem is a priority as domestic issue to President Obama. But without giving him a list and recommendations of what we expect him to do will result with why Romney lost the elections. Romney did not have clear agenda how to improve the economy if elected. Of course he wanted to give more tax breaks to the richest and did not want to do anything with 47% of Americans – most of whom are African Americans. American people rejected Romney’s approaches in last elections. As a matter of urgency, the first thing Al Sharpton and Ben Jealous should do is to call a Black summit of bright African American economists, engineers, lawyers, highway constructions workers, teachers, religious leaders, chancellors and vocational collage administrators; old civil right leaders like Jesse Jackson, medical doctors; EEOC managers etc. discuss issues and make recommendations to President Obama. President Obama then can put those in Congress and Senate for action. He can also use his executive pen if Congress drags their a*s. There must be reasons why many of us Blacks are in prisons, have high incident to commit crimes – kill one another; high drop-out from schools; are fired at work; some of us lack self-esteem; denied housing or apartment; denied medical check-ups although now ACA is going to cure that; use drugs and are alcoholic; are sometimes denied justice, hate one another like what Herman Cain or Allen West was calling us etc. I recommend these incidents should stop in our community – not later but now. But how? Those are just some of issues I came up with. I will be happy to participate in discussion if invited. I am a paid NAACP member.

  9. I forgot to mention one issue. Our Black communities should recommend names of people to be appointed in key President Obama administration: Judges, regional directors; prosecutors; federal defense attorneys. Economic advisers, SBA directors etc. But we tend to envy whoever is holding big positions. Stop that.

  10. I work for a government contractor and I also work part time with substance abuse victims trying to kick the habit. They both have one thing in common…GOVT CONTRACTS AND GUARANTEED MONEY!!. Both are owned by majority white folks and if you ask me, they have always been the ones that feel they are entitled to anything!! I read some of these comments like from Christine saying ” we don’t need nuthin, we do for ourselves” AND THAT IS ASININE.ONE HAND WASHES THE OTHER! The world is a circle and If you don’t believe me, why you think Leon Panetta is being bombarded from all the military higher ups and defense contractors that love that GUARANTEED GOVERNMENT CONTRACTOR MONEY!! TAXPAYER MONEY!!! You all sound like you don’t even know how the game is played!!. My mayor gives out no show/no bid contracts all the time in closed door meetings to mostly white biznezzmen.They don’t have a problem LOBBYING FOR THAT GUARANTEED GOVT MONEY TO HELP THEIR FOLKS EAT, AND THEIR COMPANIES SURVIVE.DIDN’T WALL STREET GET A LARGE SUM OF GOVT MONEY? Get it right! We, I repeat, WE HAVE NEVER BEEN AT THE TABLE WHEN THE MONEY IS BEING DOLLED OUT AND WE WILL NEVER BE!! I have worked for govt contractors for years and they get theirs off the top!! I’m a professional and the work is never slow. And our pay goes up each year with the new allocation of funds from, guess who, the GOVERNMENT. THE WHITE CATS THAT OWN THESE COMPANIES ARE FAT a*s HOGS OFF, YOU GUESSED IT, GOVT MONEY, TAXPAYER MONEY!! GET IT STRAIGHT. I had an old teacher tell me once to always “follow the money and you can’t go wrong!!” Black folks need to get off of this “he don’t owe us nothing” because white biznezzmen work overtime in politricks, as bro D says to get, you guessed it GOVT MONEY!! You can keep being stupid if you want to and I’ll keep getting paid twice over from, you guessed it, GOVERNMENT MONEY, TAXPAYER MONEY. NOW WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT NOT WANTING ANYTHING FROM THE GOVERNMENT? Oh and lets not forget, the 200billion in aid that is dolled out EVERY YEAR to countries like China, Russia, Israel, Egypt, Libya, Japan, and many others and those folks are at the table making sure they get what they don’t even deserve in most cases. And what about all these cites that give rich sports owners big pretty stadiums that most of us can’t afford to go see a game in off, you guessed it GOVT MONEY, TAXPAYER MONEY? MOST OF THEM CAN AFFORD TO PAY FOR THEIR OWN STADIUMS, BUT THEY ARE IN CAHOOTS WITH THE POLITICIANS AND THEY PLAY GAMES WITH THE PUBLIC” WE WILL MOVE THE TEAM IF WE CANT GET A NEW STADIUM.” Be for real!! And y’all go for it!! What about that black, brown and even you white folks? MAAT…

    • @Imhotep: “You all sound like you don’t even know how the game is played!!”
      =========================================================

      This is the negroid’s problem, Brother Imhotep…they don’t know how to PLAY the game; they just know how to get PLAYED…BUY THE GOVERNMENT aka willie lynch, who continues to HANG them.

      MAAT!!!

    • Imhotep Black Americans were just allowed to vote about 40 years ago. When most of us were on the farm, before great migrations to northern cities, most never paid income taxes or understood why. Even when a small percentage of blacks made enough money to require preparing a tax return, many didn’t know how and what the money was to be used for because blacks were separate and unequal in everything they didn’t and many still dont know that paying taxes is a 2 way street – we pay the taxes and in return the govt provides for us.

    • Imhotep, that is where it is. Getting through that contracting maze is the key. The prez needs to hear from AA about that and he needs to let those persons in these agencies know this is a new day we giving out contract. I get e-mails forwarded from the white house for competitive bids. But we must have the capacity to execute the contract. So learn all you can while working for the contractor.

      • Just like your d**n Prez who tells dirty lies and gives excuses why blacks are not employed and given contracts, you really want blacks to believe that our millions of people with bachelor’s, master’s and Ph.D’s that are UNEMPLOYED are not qualified to do the job, while you award the contract to some redneck who barely graduated high school, while our educated sit idle.

        YOU AND HE ARE NO BETTER THAN THE d**n KKK YOU WORK FOR.

        I listend to rascist white folks tell their dirty lie in corporate america 35 years, while qualified black candidates were sitting right next to them in the board room.

        Dirty bish.

  11. I understand recession has taken toll us Blacks. But jobs are still available for anybody who wants to work. President Obama cannot force people to apply for jobs they don’t like. I understand frustration of us Blacks. We want cushion jobs and lots of money and dress like CEOs. Come to Madison and see how many Blacks really want to work. I have a temp agency and many jobs available now are assembly work, driving heavy equipment, shipping work, cleaning, X-Mas retail etc. These need people to work standing. Blacks work for a month or two and then quit – giving reasons such as standing is hard for their feet. Some people are too heavy to work while standing. So when you hear people complaining about lack of jobs it may be they don’t want certain jobs. They would prefer welfare checks, drugs and drinking. Some if they work, they want be paid same day and would accept pays $8 or more per hour. Mexicans accept minimum pay. We are lucky we re-elected President Obama. Republicans had vowed wipe out all programs such as food stamps, infant nutrition, unemployment benefits and job training programs. Republicans don’t care if all we Blacks die. At least President Obama listens to us. Obama has experienced the same frustrations and discrimination like most of us. Of course some us Black people are jealousy that Obama President. Some even argue that Obama is not Black. That’s silly. We Blacks should not be jealousy for positions we cannot all reach. Not all us can be Presidents. I thank you all for re-electing President Obama. That was actually my Thanksgiving. Have a wonderful day.

  12. @DAD good points, and add in the chamber of commerces at all levels. I hear black biznezzmen on my local black radio station complain all the time about being shut out on government contracts when state law says they must use minority contracts to some extent, and in all fields from construction to cutting the state house grass! ! Backdoor dealings are commonplace and unless u r BOULE’, u r a*s out! !! I just started a small company to office medical services and it took me 2 months to get my CMS NPI certification and I dare to finish the long bullshit form to become a CERTIFIED MINORITY CONTRACTOR! Look u the paperwork in ur state and see that bull! So ill just be a biznezz man! f**k the minority s**t! Its really deep what goes on! I see my black, independent deputy mayor all the time and he told me two years ago that it doesn’t make sense to give 90 plus percent our vote to a party and get nuthin in return. By the way, black folks don’t like him. Especially since our mayor just gave all his folks 15,000 raises! !! And my mayor is Republican and he got 30% of the black vote last election. !! Go figure!! Hotep

    • I know a brother, who was a ‘minority’ contractor [I hate that word], but he was just a p**n for the white boy’s business. Even though, he was a ‘minority’ contractor, he still was not allowed to be in on the business money deals!

      What most negroids don’t OVERstand is the use of the word ‘minority’, which only means, that negroids will only have a MINOR part of the business contract!!! Once these caucasoids used him to get tax write-offs because he was Black, they got rid of him. He lost his home, car, wife, and pride because he was used by these caucasoid contractors. He now lives in California working for somebody else.

      IF BLACKS DON’T “OWN” THEIR BUSINESSES, THEY ARE STILL PAWNS FOR THESE caucasoids, WHO ONLY USE THEM TO GET MINORity STATUS FOR TAX BREAKS!

      I’m not a minority! I’m part of the MAJORity culture. Black and brown people are 90% of the world population, while caucasoids are only 10%; therefore, who are the real minorities?

      Hotep

      • p**n = pa*wn (how come they didn’t let me spell this word out)? It is not a bad word!

      • Right Derrick. d**n near all the blacks at the phone company got ushered out when Bush got in office, and blacks at the top did the ushering. Politics determine everything.

        I thought electing obama that first time would get us ushered back in but, well you know, LOL he couldn’t even say the word “black” LOL

  13. Stop complaining and bickering!!The same way you stood in line to vote for the President is the same way you start a petition for all the things you want the President to do for Black people. I am certain that every Black,Hispanic,and all Minorities will sign.Stop trying to get into the White House and start with a Petition.Stop dividing and Conquering and acting like Crabs.You didn’t complain this much with Bush and Cheney.Oh, I forgot some of you are Republicans!!!

  14. To all of you negative no hope, don’t believe the hype, foolish black people you call those of us who HELP reelect President Obama as well as you Dr Boyce,talk about what he can do for the black community, jobs seems to be #1 on the list, education is somewhere in there I think I don’t see it mentioned much,and how he needs to meet with ??? who in the black community??. All of you have so very many demands on this PRESIDENT. did you have this many demands on the last 42 Presiedents, and do you all have any suggestions on how to fix our communities? not just jobs but how to create jobs, and are any of our people prepared for jobs, i.e education, skills. and most importantly the DESIRE to want to work. we seem to forget there are some folks who just don’t want to work. we have some in our communities who don’t want better for themselves, I am a product of the housing projects and I have seen first hand how many generations grow up in the projects (or we like to call them low income housing) and they are okay with that. and BLACKS are not the only ones who voted for the President many people of all races voted for him. I voted for him not because he is black but because I see the vision he has for ALL people, but espeially for BLACKS. CAn he stop the corporation from shipping their own companies overseas,can he make corporations hire people.If we want change we have to first start with ourselves, Don’t think for one moment our children aren’t watching US and the b*%*s#$t we are talking, but not walking.what they see is HATE, and NEGATIVITY and you all wonder why they don’t want anything, or to do anything with their lives. IF WE WANT CHANGE. LETS START WITH OURSELVES. COME TO THESE PAGES WITH SOLUTIONS ONLY.WAYS TO IMPROVE THE BLACK COMMUNITY.HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE GONE OUT TO OUR COMMUNITIES AND ASK WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

    • so your dumb azz wants us black people to pay taxes that put obammy in a mansion, limo, plane, made him a millionare, and now we’re supposed to do this negro job too???

      u r one dumb piece of sh8t not qualified to vote.

      • dianna, it sounds like you are the dumb azz. I agree with Sheila. It sounds like you are one of those on the gimme list. You did not make those demands on the previous Presidents. He is the Prez for all the people. Not just people of color because , people of color was not the only group to put him in office. you , Al Sharpton, Rev Jackson and Dr. Boyce and a host of others sounds as racist as the Tea party and the Republicans. Lets here something positive. Lets support our President and show him some respect. If you pay your taxes and stop waitng on a hand out then maybe it would be a start of paying down the deficit. By the way if, you did pay taxes, i don,t hear you complaining about the previous Prez living in a mansion, driving a limo, planes and making them millionaires. Which i doubt we are making him a millionaire, This man and his wife is quite intelligent. you are a typical crab trying to keep a great President down. Stop being a hater you and your klans DUMB AZZ!!!

    • Shelia, no he can not stop companies from shipping jobs out the country but we can stop buying their products. Now tell me who will be their consumer.

      • You stupid as h**l. People have NEEDs. People with LOW INCOME have to buy the cheapest product available. Why the h**l cant this negro Obama do his job, or resign. A decent human being wouldn’t even want a job that doesn’t give him the power to help the people. An unselfish person would do what is in the best interest of his COUNTRY and not his d**n SELFISH self. A REAL PRESIDENT PUTS HIS COUNTRY’S BEST INTEREST FIRST. HE NEEDS TO STEP DOWN. HE HAS NEVER CREATED A JOB IN HIS LIFE.

        PLEASE READ UP ON THE INTERNATIONAL FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS, TARIFFS, ETC. I’M NOT SPENDING ALL MY TIME EDUCATION YOU, BUT I WILL SAY EVERY ONE BENEFITED FROM THE FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS EXCEPT EUROPE AND THE U.S. ALL THE BLACK, YELLOW, BROWN NATIONS TOOK JOBS, STOLE OUR PATENTS, AND AND GAVE US NOTHING IN RETURN. THE PRESIDENT HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE THE LAWS.

  15. Let’s see. High unemployment, high crime rate, unable to get loans from banks, communities overrun with drugs(note: and when you try to rid them from your community the policeman and others who in a lot of instances have good intentions, but their hands are tied and after an arrest, the dealers on right back on the street), Katrina. Wall Street, banks, airlines and others gambled money away. Other mega-corporations cooked the books. Black unemployment reported 17% but most likely 45 to 50%(Remember these figures are based on those reported by the government to be looking for employment. What about most whose given up work and involved in the underground economy? Maybe that’s being somehow reported?

    Bush is out and President Obama in. Wall Street bailed out. Banks bailed out. Mega-Corporations bailed out. Gays get their agenda passed. Illegals get their agenda passed through creative political procedure. Jewish people and the state of Israel supported unconditionally. Bush tax cut to the wealthy extended. Medicare passed but single option missing in action.

    There is no Black America, etc but only the “United States of America”. Go tell those other groups that. They are not going to go for it. It may sound good and righteous but in practice it’s not true. With all the freebees other groups and countries receive from the government why should Blacks not get their fair share? And let’s be clear on this point. Blacks are not asking for a handout, “We Are Paying Taxes” not only on wages but for every-time you purchase an item. And yes I agree, Mr. Obama is the president of the United States and not just “Black America”. But he or at least he should be a president making a conscious effort to reach out and address the problems of “Black America” a community he received 93% of their votes and countless hours of community campaign man/woman hours.

    Many want to place the problem on Blacks. And yes, we certainly have our faults but remember the so-called Indians. Where, are they now and how did it happen? So yes, Mr. Obama is obligated to use his position as President to address the problems of Black folk and if he doesn’t it’s our fault. That doesn’t mean each of us are not responsible to do our part but the government debt to Black America cannot be overemphasized. Let’s be clear on another point. There are many Black groups and organizations working very hard to “Bring About Real Change”. It’s just not being reported and many times these efforts are deliberately thwarted by “Unseen Hands”.

    As a parting note: One would do well to read President Obama’s book, “Dreams From My Father”. And remember it’s ok to disagree with another persons point of view but don’t allow that to under-gird progress. Remember, the Master is still in charge but we can’t just pray and stand on the sidelines and expect change just like you can’t pray for a baby. You must do the creative works to bring it into fruition.

  16. If These Racist Pieces Of Trash And These Ignorant “n*****s” Don’t Stop Trying To Destroy President Obama And Our Race, Funeral Homes Are Going To Start Making Lots Of Money. I Am Sick And Tired Of These Racist Pieces Of Trash And Worthless “So-Call” African Americans That Are Nothing But Ignorant “n*****s.

    • YOU are the biggest nig*ger on this site!!! If you knew where this word ORIGINATED from, you wouldn’t even use this word. This is why I call colored people, like you, negroids!!! A negroid is a chocolate covered caucasoid, and the ORIGINAL nig*gers were/are caucasoids!

      Bye nig*ger!!!

  17. For some reason we love to talk about poor, unemployed, uneducated and jailed people. My question is how in the h**l did they get this way? With all these good Black Leaders and elected Black officials we have elected how did this come about? Where are the educated elites, the mind thinkers of our time? Was it not there job to guard against this type of abuse? I will tell you where they are: Eating from the trough of the oppressor. The Ivy League schools they teach, the Web site they have learned to use to their advantage, the daily talk shows and radio & television they have coopted. They have done what no other group in American has done; integrated. Have you been in the home or on the streets with the so called poor? They have flat screen TV’s, Car with wheels that cost more that the furniture in my home, X-boxes, the latest cell phones, the best clothes money can buy, the best hair do’s and nails, they spend more money than any other group but we call them poor because they do not have a job making more than the minimum wage. We have Black longshoremen on our ports that make more than $ 100,000.00 a year but at the end of the year cannot tell you where any of it is. Our country is getting ready to rebuild it infrastructure; roads, bridges, schools, dams, electric grids and nuclear power plants and here we are arguing who is saying what about nothing or who is getting invited to the White house, are we crazy? Let’s forget who handing us something and start to rebuild our communities ourselves. Then, when we stand strong with each other we can stand strong against others. Stop talking, get up off our behinds and get to work. Remember you are blessed of the Lord.

    • As intelligent as you are, you know that we can do nothing without the white man’s permission/LICENSE. Try to rebuild without getting their permission. Obama and good white folks gave foreigners $60 million dollars in small business contracts and they used the money to shut us down. Yes, the dirty foreign black did just that. That is how he repaid you for trying to embrace his black evil azz. He sold u into slavery wasnt that evidence enough?? So, now he comes to America AFTER he heard blacks have won some opportunities to steal, and so he is sitting his black azz

      in the cabs u used to feed your families with

      setting up his dirty african hair braiding shops that is breaking off your daughter’s hair, and putting our black beauticians out of work

      trying to take over black entertainment with no talents like rihanna nicki minaj

      and stealing your american child’s opportunities and birthrights – all under the guise of WE BLACK PEOPLE in this together, and yet he never gives anything back. only takes take takes, and calls u silly and dumb for embracing and trusting his black self

      • Dianna, did you take your medication? If you spent as much time being constructive instead of being vile and angry, you would be a persons of greatness.

        • Just like the Satan worshipper you are, you believe that you can belittle the TRUTH, by belittling the messenger. No one falling for your stupidity but you. People know the truth when they hear it fool.

    If there is no struggle,there is no progress. those who profess
    to favor freedom,and yet deprecate agitation,are men who wantcrops
    without plowing up the ground.they want rain without thunder and
    lighting.they want the ocean without the awful roar of its many
    waters.this struggle may be a moral one;or it may be both moral
    and physical;but it must be a struggle.power concedes nothing
    without a demand.

    • everyone knew that before Obama nation took over!!! if someone had told me 20 years ago, that blacks would be attacking each other for exercising their right to vote for the candidate of their choice, I wouldn’t have believed it.

      I know foreign blacks kill each other over voting. we did have millions of them invade black america the last 20 years. it is the only logical explanation for this lunacy. they added nothing of value to black american life, and they need to be deported.

    • God dont love you dumb azz. Stop talking about God when you voted for killing the unborn, the right for your son to be f8cked in his s****y azz and every low down thing on the planet. You need to bury your head in shame. God dont love evil, and he dont love people who vote for evil, and you will be punished and your black demon is going to be the one who delivers you to satan.

  24. The Black voter is the Democratic Party’s bottom ho, and they get treated accordingly.

    As soon as these two criminal gangs work out a deal on the budget millions of Afrikan American voters are going to realize they just got screwed again.

    • “…Afrikan American voters are going to realize they just got screwed again.”

      WITH NO GREASE!!!

      It’s ashame, how negroids let these caucasoids treat them, but then they run to their businesses like a runaway slave, to give them their money.

      I am beginning to think, that there is no hope for Black amerikkka!

      All this HATERISM [self-hate] is outta control, and negroids are so brainwashed with white/washed xtianity, they can’t see beyond their noses.

      I HAVE GIVEN UP ON NEGROIDS!!!

      • Dont give up. Speak your truths. Make sure your msg is sound, and factual. A mother never gives up on her child, and a soldier never tires of fighting for his people. Man up!

        Life is about struggle – constant struggle. You’re a strong person Derrick. Dont take it personally when everyone doesn’t recognize your truth, because if you reach at least one person, it is worth it, and when it is your time to go, you can say with confidence, “I DID MY BEST.” It is all that is required of you.

        Learn who your people are Derrick. Color is NOT THE TIE THAT BINDS. Inspite of what you have been told, IT IS NOT! Blood doesn’t even bind people – ask people who have been adopted by loving parents. What really binds is:

        shared history
        shared struggle
        shared love of homeland
        shared culture (food, dress, religion)
        shared values and morals

        If you really look closely at those things you will learn that black Americans are a distinct people that have no real connections to foreign blacks. THEY KNOW IT AND IT IS TIME WE KNOW IT, BECAUSE THEY ONLY SEEK TO USE, ABUSE, AND TAKE FROM US. Once africans sold us into slavery, they cut their ties with us, just as when a child is given up for adoption. And they didn’t look back at us, or welcome us back home, or invite us to come back home provided with housing, jobs, security and a life of peace free of discrimination.

        They did court our wealthy black americans and conned them into forsaking and reviling our american poor, and ask us to give to them. That is the mind of a sick and evil person/group, and they suck.

  25. All of our GREAT African American Leaders have long passed. I cannot even consider Rev. Jackson a leader because I believe that a leader leads by example and with the report of his adulteress affair ruined his reputation and credibility but I do respect him for what he has done in the cause. I don’t know why or when Rev. Sharpton became a so called African American Leader in my opinion he is simply a typical blood sucking LAWYER.

  26. Great article Dr. Watkins, Sharpton and Jealous have sold us out and they have forfeited their priveledge to represent and speak on our behalf. I disagree about letting messy Jeese Jackson represent us also. He is a sell out also(he played a major role in getting MLK murdered). I only would trust Dr. Cornell West, Dr Umar Johnson, The Honorable Min Farrakhan, Glen Ford, and Dr Jared Ball to represent on our behalf. They have been consistent and showed strong leadership especially in the past four years. I can’t see them selling us out for 30 pieces of silver like most of our other leaders have.

  27. I have stated long ago that it was imperative for President Obama to include us in decisions affecting us, and he should not limit such participatory approach to Rev. Al Sharpton, Benjamin Jealous, or Marc Morial. There are many other well-qualified African Americans, both men and women, who should have a seat at the table in identifying solutions. I strongly recommend President Obama consider individuals within the academia that have studied the issues and can offer substantive ideas and solutions, as well as other national professional Black organizational leaders and individuals with proven records. Rev. Al Sharpton, Benjamin Jealous and Marc Morial’s organizations have existed for decades, if they had the answers, there would be no need to meet with the President.

  28. Republicans Stop Sabotaging The American People

    Smiley and West will get their chance for “a seat at the table” when Hillary is elected in 2016. (maybe)

    • No self respecting women would vote for a women who does not respect herself. So how can you forgot about lying cheating Bill. It was Hilliary who brought out the tapes on Obama`s minister. It was Hilliary who wanted 3o thousand more troops in Afghanistan, It was Hilliary when the prez was in Brazilian who pushed for the US involvement in Libya. Don`t forget her husband who has almost sold out the Haitian people by bringing corporate american to just about take over.Lets ot forgot her husband NAFTA bill that started shipping jobs out of this country. Oh no, that is one women who certainly would not get my vote.

      • I know u r an ignorant redneck now, because that is the same STUPID reason they gave for not voting for Hillary, when the real reason is that Hillary is a woman who loves black people and encouraged her husband to put them in his cabinet, and socialized as equal and put welfare mothers in GOOD jobs.

        So we’re supposed to be mad at Hillary for telling the truth on Obama LMAO u crazy as h**l!

        So we’re supposed to be mad because Hillary recommended something, YOU SAY, and Obama being the commander in chief with free will to accept or reject her proposal, used his executive power to accept her proposal. Is he retarded? Is that why he shouldn’t be blamed.

        Haiti took american aid, and sat on their houses and did NOTHING for themselves. The fools thought they were american tax payers on welfare LOL and entitled to it for life

        And as far as NAFTA, the entire world, including Europe engaged in that, and it would have been a GREAT thing if dirty selfish china, india, africa, etc., had lived up to their end of the bargain. We all would have had jobs, and wealth.

  29. sat on their butts and did nothing

  30. Dear Dr. Watson:

    I a confused by your comment of you don’t know if Al Sharpton, and the Ben Jealouses of the country should be at the table, this is after you said and criticized them about selling out our community for the sake of the Obama administration and I agree with you about that. I just have a hard time understanding why would you them ask whether you think they should be invited to the table to talk to Obama about tour plight and the REAL solutions that should come from these meetings. If they are sellouts as they clearly are, and as you have stated numerous times in so many ways in your writing, then Why would you questions whether they should be invited at the table. Let me help you our because you seem to be either confused or too ready to compromise yourself with the so-called leaders in out community that don’t really have our community in mind. SELLOUTS SHOULD NEVER BE INVITED AT THE TABLE! PERIOD! Dr. Watson, please be more clear in you assessment of these so-called leaders, be cause sometimes you sounds like you are confused or are compromising yourself. You are confusing the people. Take care,

    Tony

  31. Rev. Sharpton and other African-American leaders were invited and met with the President about two weeks ago, where was Dr. Boyce? It was on the news, showing the leaders standing in the Rose Garden and they answered questions for the press. We don’t know what was discussed behind closed doors.

    Also, if we want to stop the school to prison pipeline we need to start in the home. Parents should look at themselves and what they are doing to encourage their young men. I can remember my dad talking to my brother telling his about the white trap “jail” and not to fall into that trap.

    As far as what the President has done for African-Americans and all Americans let me post this list again. It is time for African-Americans to stop bellyaching and take advantage of these laws.

    • Lowered taxes for 20 million African Americans through the payroll tax cut, putting $800 back in the pocket of the typical African-American working family.
    • Invested $3.4 billion in African American-owned businesses.
    • Passed the Affordable Care Act, ending insurance company abuses and expanding access to preventive care, which will reduce health disparities for 41 million African Americans.
    • Supported the early learning programs Head Start and Early Head Start, to reach an additional 64,000 children and their families.
    • Doubled funding for Pell Grants, increasing the number of recipients and putting a college education within reach for an additional 200,000 African-American students over the next decade.
    • Invested $2.55 billion in Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and other minority-serving institutions.

  32. What President Obama has done for the African-American community and all Americas.

    • Lowered taxes for 20 million African Americans through the payroll tax cut, putting $800 back in the pocket of the typical African-American working family.
    • Invested $3.4 billion in African American-owned businesses.
    • Passed the Affordable Care Act, ending insurance company abuses and expanding access to preventive care, which will reduce health disparities for 41 million African Americans.
    • Supported the early learning programs Head Start and Early Head Start, to reach an additional 64,000 children and their families.
    • Doubled funding for Pell Grants, increasing the number of recipients and putting a college education within reach for an additional 200,000 African-American students over the next decade.
    • Invested $2.55 billion in Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and other minority-serving institutions.

    • Obamacare in the long run will hurt the working poor, who dont need to be locked up or fined because they choose food over going to a doctor.

      Obamacare is making insurance companies super rich.

      Arabs, chinese, indians, and foreign blacks got all that $60 billion. For the first time in my life I see black beauticians not working for themselves or each other, but getting paid pennies to work in a foreign person’s shop.

      My local college said Pell grants will not be offered 2013. is that one of the temp gifts he gave just to get a vote?

      Tax cuts for PEOPLE ON WELFARE??? lol lol People on welfare dont pay taxes. duh???

  33. I would have to agree with brother Brian Keith and sister Jacqueline Davis-Norris go back and read what they had to say again,and of course Dr.Boyce was right on point.

  34. We as a people give our opinions as if it is going to do something special. Most of the time we NIT-PIC. We never come to a conclusion. While we are fighting for an opinion, we can not see that the world is fighting for what they want. All over ther world we are consittered as FOOLS. RETARTED PEOPLE. They put their opinions together and come out with a CONSCLUSION. They are moving on. BUT, we can not get pass our (opinion) Everyone trys to show that he/she is smarter than the other. Other people think long term. But we think Short term. (my opinion is better than yours. (WHERE IS THE SiLUTION) I respect your OPINION, But where is our unity. We are such fools. ( When are we going to see past your personal opions.

    • The people you are talking about are the same people who think that the White Mans ice is Colder that the Black Mans. Just Silly.

  35. We need help. Togetherness. And it has to start inside of us. Stop fighting US.

  36. When it comes to Black African Americans, we have no leadership. We have Black Faces in High Places, but no leadership. My new definition of leadership: They solve their people’s problems without excuses. Many of the responses have typical of Black Folks focused on their own selfish interested and not those of their people. Deep down subconscious self hatred. We must demand economic resources like President Obama gave to Solyndra Solar be invested in our entrepreneurs. We must create our own national empowerment agenda. We must Ignore all leadership that ignores our agenda. Ain’t no Messah coming to save us! We must develop new leadership, new economic strategies & new human develop programs for our own survival. As we all know, President Obama is a great politicians, but when it comes to helping Black Folks improve their conditions, he has no plan or agenda and will throw anyone under the bus who suggests that he address the suffering of Black Americans. Want proof: Company my African American Own Renewable Energy Company to Solynda Solar and A123 Solar who got stimulus funding through Pay-To-Play and AHEC http://www.ahecEnergy.com

    We can and must compete to improve the conditions of Black African Americans and the poor.

  37. Travis from Brooklyn

    Im a historian, a fan of the Civil War. Most of the responses remind me of some of the slave journals where some of the slaves were just happy to be free. While the rest of the country was getting money to rebuild the South. A good number of slaves were content to share crop and work their way out of a 400 year financial cliff. Wall Street got.paid, the Banks got paid, but “No Masa,we dont be needing nuthin” SMH

  38. Dr. Watkins, you don’t know what is being discussed in those meetings. You’re just making bunch of speculations based on your bias against President Obama.

    Black folks, if you all really, REALLY want to know about what the Obama Administration is doing for the black community, go here: http://www.whitehouse.gov/africanamericans

    See for your self and make your own judgements, not listen to someone with an ax to grind.

  39. It’s so sad that you really believe that the government can make a change in our community. Wake up we must do for self. Until we do it don’t matter who the president is. This is still amerikkka. 1
    .

  40. I hate to tell you yhis there is nothing new in this article. It have been this way for over 150 years since Slavery was supposed to have been abolished.Blacks have been eating CRUMBS, it is not going to change under president Obama. It’s the natural order of things. A community that is disorganised is a defeated community. We have no agenda, we talk and complain, but we have no other history other than complain. And when the man offer us a little crumbs for ourselves we forget the rest of the community. Now we see France and England invading Africa, with TANKS, AIRCRAFT, AND BOOTS ON THE GROUND. HOW MANT BLACK LEADERS SAID ONE WORD ABOUT IT?> A DEVIDED PEOPLE IS A CONQURED PEOPLE.UNTIL WE LIBERATE OURSELVES AND SPEAK WITH ONE VOICE, A UNITED FRONT WE ARE FOREVER CONTROLLED.LETS FACE WE ARE STILL IN SLAVERY AROUND THE WORLD, THE ONLY THING WE HAVE IS WHAT THEY GIVE US BECAUSE IT IS OF NO VALUE TO THEM.
    THE NEXT AGENDA OR THE NEW ECONOMY WILL BE BASED ON MENERAL DEPOSIT, AND WHERE DO THESE DEPOSITS EXIST, IN AFRICA, THE GROUND WAR IS ON ND BLACK FOLKS IS STILL ASLEEP.AND PROMOTING THE BIBLE.

  41. Bravo, Dr Watkins! Yet another sensible and well reasoned argument. I like the President, and I am hesitant to directly accuse him of lack of help for African Americans, but what you are saying is supported by shocking percentages, adn must be addressed. Good work.

  42. What is Black America’s plan for their survival. What proposals are being presented to the President for consideration that are critical needs for the Black community? Who among the “current black leaders” really represent the will of the Black community? If nothing is already to be floated across his desk tomorrown, why isn’t it ready? Answer these questions people. Planning should just be starting, the plan should have already been in place.
