Will having a black president have a positive effect on the Black community?
I don't know.
Black politicians do not have a good track record in helping their communities.
Take a look at every Black community in every city in every state here in America.
The schools are always underfunded and overcrowded. The housing market is always at the bottom of the barrel compared to other communities. The health services are always sub-par. There are no jobs in the Black community. And do I have to mention the crime rate?
All of this is happening under Black politicians.
So why does the Black majority think that Obama will make a difference?
How is he any different from all the other disappointments we have seen over the decades?
All we get from Black politicians are sound bites and staged marches on anything and anybody when they feel that they need to stay visible in the public eye.
All we get are powerful speeches invoking Martin Luther King and God.
What have they done for our welfare as American citizens?
Why is it that a common working class Black Man can get shot 50 times by the police and all we get is march?
Why is it that a young black man can kill another young black man on the streets of a black community and all we get is a sermon?
Why is it that High Schools in any Black community have a drop out rate at damn near 50% and all we get are sound bites?
Why is it that all the jobs that used to be in the black community are gone and all we get is it is the Mexicans fault?
Why Why Why!
So what good are black politicians?
Do we even need them?
Or am I the only one that is sick and tired of being sick and tired?
