7. that is not what he said

he said it's not enough to scream about injustice, you must be willing to take the steps needed to get the issues addressed - it was an entirely reasonable assertion

9. Thanks Skittles.

I alerted for the post and no link, actually they make a habit of posting without links. Late and almost 45 minutes since I alerted, guess it is lost and gone forever. Whatever. Ef this place.

8. The struggle continues

There are all kinds of ways to push the country forward. Black folks have pushed, pulled, dragged the rest of the country into making small steps and sometimes it's 2 steps forward and 1step back. The resistance from our government and white people has been daunting but the civil rights movement and especially black activism has withstood murder and mayhem.
I believe Obama, as someone who choose the political route to push equality is urging some of these young folks to join the political system to effect change. It is not enough to protest you have to change the politics. There will be some who remain outside politics, like mlk or Malcolm but we also need people like McKesson who uses his experience in the movement to pivot to politics. He may not win but I hope he and the people on his campaign sharpen their political savvy. I think out of the blm movement, we will see some take the political route, in local races at least I hope so. Over the past couple of years I've been so impressed with some of the voices coming out of the movement. It is the struggle that continues. Never give up.

19. I hear you

But as far as Black people are concerned, President Obama has delivered nothing as far as I see.
President Obama has promised big ("Hope", "Change" and while he has delivered on some, on many more he has been M.I.A.
(We in the organized labor movement still have his "comfortable shoes" waiting for him)

I've always said that when he was running for office, he promised us nothing and he's delivered on his promise. If it had been a white politician who said those same things, we would be all over his/her back. Which puzzles me on Black America's lack of support for Bernie Sanders, whose service is documented and their support for Hillary Clinton, whose antipathy ALSO is well documented.

To me, President Obama has been the beneficiary of Black militancy and advocacy but has ditched it when it became no longer convenient for him; witness his treatment of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, whose fiery sermons were not only factually correct but also biblically sound. It was not enough for then Senator Obama to distance himself from his remarks but to characterize him as a "crazy uncle" was an unnecessary kick. It makes me wonder what would his reaction have been had he faced Dr. King and his "Beyond Vietnam" speech in 1967?

Black Americans have no more time for "respectability politics". Our rights are not being respected; our votes are not being respected and our lives are not being respected. He of ALL PEOPLE should know that more than anyone else with his dealings with Congress. The late Bartcop became frustrated with him trying to "negotiate with rabid dogs", but yet he seems to save lectures and platitudes for us; the ones who gave 97% of our vote to.
But we can't say we weren't warned: http://www.blackagendareport.com/content/why-barack-obama-more-effective-evil

President Obama's future is secure; his children's futures are secure. But I wonder how secure is the future of the all of those whose situation was like Obama's as a youth or those now who are at risk? How well will they fare? Something to ponder for the future even as the plans for the future Obama Presidential Library are being drawn. I hope they have a display of a Black child with an empty box to signify the promises made but never kept.

18. Ok

Try running your cursor over the link. It should turn blue. Right click. Then hit copy and then paste when you link to the page you are posting on. You need to link to your post by left clicking then hit paste.

Does this help?
