Racist America, Capitalistic America, Black America to include our alleged enlightened black thinkers alike, have continued to commit black on black attacks against our President from the comfort of their lazy boy loungers, their corporate/academia ivory towers, and from their corporate backed tv shows. What defines this campaign is two very different choices. The President who has kept his word on Iraq where every race of people have lost loved ones, by removing our troops. He has signed into law Healthcare which the republicans have lobbied to destroy and who have voted 37 times to repeal it. Hundreds of thousands of blacks will receive health insurance and will not die from disease of other issues that plague our community due to the clause in the law that makes the healthcare industry provide us with preventive care for free. He has created wall street reform that includes a consumer finance bureau which makes it very difficult for wall street to charge high interest rates on loans, credit cards and other financial instruments. Who has a high number of credit cards? The black community! Because they are so-called ballers! Well they can no longer raise interest rates on them arbitrarily. The credit card is considered late after not 1 minute after the due date, but in 30 days! Our community loves getting new cars which depreciate 20% in value after driving it off of the lot. But he still is making wall street conduct business in a fair and equitable manner. He is reforming the mortgage industry and has been prosecuting the banks for fraud with the attorneys general from NY-a white male and California-a black female. His Attorney General continues to overturn voters rights laws that target black, hispanic, the elderly, and students' basic right to vote. (interesting enough, there was no alleged fraud during Bush's 8 years in office) His Attorney General has continued to prosecute "hate crimes" in america at an unprecedented rate. He is planning on rewriting the drug laws to decriminalize many drug laws that incarcerate our blacks in record numbers! But he continues to be stamped with the crazy label of "not doing anything for the blacks." So I ask the blacks who attack him relentlessly to include Dr. West but not Dr. Dyson, Tavis but not Tom Joyner, and many other blacks who never critique but only attack. If you want to blame the President for an underachieving educational system, when was the last time you attended a PTA meeting? When was the last time you called your child's teacher or visited the school? Why did you buy your child Air Jordans instead of a computer? (Obama didn't do that) You want to blame the President for not enough jobs in the black community? Do have any marketable job skills? Do you have college degree? Do you have a technical degree? When was the last time you even looked for a job? Do you have a resume that is updated? Do you have any experience? What will last employer say about your work ethic? (Again, that is not Mr. Obama's fault) A message to the ivory tower. When was the last time that you visited the White House to propose your complaints to Mr. Obama in the form of "public policy" that addresses the problem that plagues our community? His door is always open to you. You say that he addresses the needs of every community but the black community. When was the last time the black community addressed the issues of the black community and actually agreed upon what those issues would be? One day you want america to call you african american, then you are black american, then you are afro americans, then you are just blacks! You attack and demonize gays and attck our President, but you never make that pedophile or whoremonger in your pulpits step down! (no cohesiveness) You attack the President on not addressing black issues, but you look past the congressional black caucus! (no cohesiveness) You attack civil rights leaders and talk about them based upon what Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, etc, says about them because you let other ethnicities define our leaders. But you call these same leaders when you are in trouble! (no cohesiveness) You want to spend money hand over fist buying cars instead of investing in these civil rights organizations but complain about the state of your community but do not vote! Attention: Every Other Community VOTES!!! Until you address the problems internally in our community, you will never be respected, revered, feared, or noticed.
Then you have Romney who hides his money, worships with a faith that demonizes blacks, who closed the eeo office in Mass. when he was Governor, made the blacks who wanted to file discrimination claims pay a tax to file, he refuses to release his tax returns when the President has released 12 years of returns, he earns money from america and hides his money offshore to tax evade. He owns a company that ships jobs off shore to maximize his income while laying people off and raising the unemployment rate. He has told blacks at the NAACP conference that he would erase all of the gains that civil rights groups and blacks have fought to attain! As Governor of Mass. he was at least 47 out of 50 in unemployment which including high rates for blacks. So since these GOP plants are on this site trying to attack my President, tell them to bring the facts with them next time because we can't have different facts. Different opinions but never different facts.
What defines this election is indicative of this letter from Elizabeth Warren, former head of the Consumer Finance Bureau:
When I first came up with the idea for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a lot of people told me, “Don’t do it.”
They said that the big banks and their army of lobbyists would spend whatever it takes to stop us – and their allies in Congress would fight like crazy to preserve the status quo.
But we got organized, and we won. Today is the one-year birthday of the consumer agency opening its doors, and it is already pushing toward mortgages and credit cards that are easier to understand and holding lenders that break the law accountable.
Now Republicans are pushing laws that would cut the legs out from underneath the consumer agency — or repeal it outright.
The fight to keep the new consumer agency shows just how important it is that we send advocates for the middle class to Washington – and that the Democrats control the U.S. Senate.
We can’t afford to lose in November. Please donate $5 to my campaign and to the DSCC to prevent the Senate from falling into Republican control.
I’ve seen for myself in the Senate race in Massachusetts that the Republicans will do and say anything to win in November. What’s more, they are raising unprecedented amounts of money to defeat Senate Democrats across the country.
We stood up to them before, and by building a powerful grassroots campaign all across the country, we can win again.
Thank you for being a part of this,
There are alternative party options.
I'm glad we still have good people who aren't followers of the pied piper. Where is the pied piper leading his followers to? The truth is we still didn't know who the obama's are. I never believed I would not vote for a great president who happen's to be part Black. The economy is shot. The state of Black America is in the hands of inexperienced fronting Black Elitist. Who are no different than the corrupt Black and/or White politicians we have always known. The president hasn't been a captain of industry, war hero, true civil rights leader, a proven lawyer ie (Cochran, Marshall and/or Houston). So why did we make this mistake? Because he's half Black and went to harvard law schools.
He was a junior senator and only half Black senator in the senate at the time. We, today don't have any Black senators? Has the president spoke about the lack of Black Jobs and/or Black senators? NO!
So we voted for the president because he's Half Black and hoping he and his wife would correct the injustice that affects US. What a mistake! So we should make this mistake again!
Fight all forms of governmental corruption ie: federal, state and local.

MR. RICARDO JONES, SR. is a veteran and the former Senior Federal Investigator for the new York District of the EEOC from 2001 to 2010. He describes how the EEOC is a cesspool of corruption and racism. Blacks working in the United States have any protection from racial discrimination, because the EEOC unfairly rejects almost 97% of all cases filed by Blacks. Sellout Blacks in the EEOC and racist white workers in the government agency accept bribes and do their jobs in a sexually charged environment where sexual availability and tolerance of racial injustice places folks on the fast track. Jones was fired for refusing to play ball and accept bribes. If you want to file an EEOC complaint please watch this film.

A recent poll conducted by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal came up with this startling result: Mitt Romney has absolutely no support among black voters.
I’m not saying that he had “little support” or “less support” than President Obama — who, I don’t think I need to remind you, is half-black.
Romney, the official Republican presidential candidate as of last week, polled absolutely no support.
Zero percent for Romney, 94 percent for Obama. (The rest, I presume, will be voting for me.)
I’ll assume the poll is accurate because of the quality of the news organizations involved. Accurate — and mind-boggling.
But not only for the reason you think.
My first thought is that at least a few black people called by pollsters must have said they liked Mitt. Sure, he’s whiter than white, but the guy’s not blazing red with horns.
And even if they don’t care for the candidate himself, a few black people must like his wife, Ann, or the fact that he has successfully supported his many kids and avoided getting arrested during his 63 years on Earth.
(I didn’t actually fact check for arrests but I assume the Republicans have.)
In the typical poll, people also say things they don’t really believe — “I like his name. Sure I’ll vote for him.” Surely a few people must have misspoke to the pollsters!
But there’s another, more important reason why this poll was so shocking: blacks have not done well financially during the Obama Administration.
I know, nobody has done well. But blacks have a legitimate gripe.
Yesterday was Labor Day (yes, that’s why you didn’t have to go to work) and the August employment report will be released this Friday. So I thought this would be a good time to revisit the job situation in this country.
And I’m going to start by chronicling the fact that black people love President Obama despite what the economy has done to them.
You can interpret the numbers I am going to give you in different ways.
One is that the president has an amazingly loyal following among blacks. The second interpretation is that blacks — because they have fared so poorly over the past four years — might be ripe for Mitt and his vice-presidential candidate, Paul Ryan, to pick off.
Here are some numbers.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 15 percent of all blacks were unemployed in July. That is down from 16.8 percent in July, 2011, but the figure is still much higher than the 8.3 percent total unemployment rate.
Overall, whites had an 8.2 percent jobless rate in July — a terrible number, of course, but not nearly as bad as the figure for blacks.
