    Like i always said... You can't be Obama without being willing to do what it takes to become Obama...and that means biting your tongue to rise to the top.

    Frankly anyone disagreeing with how he handles things wont ever get to a position to make that decision, precisely because they would be filtered out by the system. Its the prime reason i can't criticize him.

    Obama claims reparations are 'justified' but explains it was a 'nonstarter' during his presidency | Daily Mail Online





    Yvette and Tone are misconstruing his words, but the sentiment is true and frankly honest. Props to obama.

    Anyone with common sense knew. White people literally got angry when Obama would loosely allude to the word 'Black'.

    Common sense ain't common. The mouth breathers are about to run up in this thread, angry because they can't comprehend their own stupidity.

    The epitome of spinelessness.

    Your support (this goes for anyone not just Obama) for Reparations should not be conditioned on the feelings of white people.

    If you support something then you support it. If you don't say you don't.
    If Reparations are owed for past wrongdoings then they are owed. END OF STORY.
    STAND ON IT.

    Stop adding bullshyt conditions on our justice claim.

    Well duh, a mans money is where his heart lies.

    cacs will tattoo BLM on their ass and rename every street Martin Luther king drive before they give their wealth away. Literally no group of people in power have willingly given up that power and wealth.

    it’s only gonna get worse as the cac population decreases and the wealth concentration increases.

    Hell why stop at reparations, anything that can help black people in any tangible way will inspire said backlash. So where does that leave us?

    We need to unite and give it to ourselves.

    I'm not waiting for white ppl to all of a sudden grow a conscience and give me something. Nah just stay the hell out of my way and don't try to stop my progress. Any progress that I make, I'm trying to build an institution for our ppl. And I know many other black ppl that feel the same exact way.

    It makes sense in his first term but after reelection when its obvious no matter what you support the GOP is going to fight it and you had no future political aspirations I don't see why not bring it to the national stage :patrice:

    There is only one way to attain power and status. That is through money and ergo, paid influence over politicians. In addition, you need to be able to coherently use your clout and wealth to motivate your group enough to as Tariq would say, "stay on code".

    The reality is the black community will never achieve this with the following issues: black folks killing other black folks and having more disdain for fellow black folks than even non-black people. Black men and women of wealth deciding to spend their wealth on friviously keeping up with the Jones consumerism, marrying outside of the race when rich, and supreme selfishness and not giving back to the community they are from. Finally, too many black people lack a feeling of community with other black people. When shyt goes down, there is a feeling of "its not my business" but it is sometimes even if you're not directly impacted. If some dude in your neighborhood is robbing, killing, and hurting people even if he doesn't hurt you, his existence destroys social cohesion if it continues unchallenged. Community trust is hurt by it.

    Until these are fixed, it's a matter of when not if the black community is going to be attacked in an existential way far beyond what we deal with now.

    Well, there is the issue that the tweet is literally fake news. The credit card leaked like 2 or 3 years ago because one of her friends posted it. The image of him fukking a black chick is not maliah and if you're black it should be obvious why because the hair texture is off. The picture of her in a bikini is from some paparazzi shoot, not from his laptop.

    So, you cant discuss shyt when folks lie about the basic facts before discussion even begins.

    Folks got to stop blindly believing shyt on social media...

    There were several topics on the forum BTW.
