I am sick and tired of this question being asked and always a round and round about what was done and not done, if it was enough, it was enough for some people but others want more, etc. The problem is the goalpost always moves on this convo. There is no benchmark that would satisfy everyone, so there will always be a gripe. One issue is we dont have a consensus of what we want done in general, so we cant focus on those issues to be taken care of and addressed.
To the question at hand, I still dont understand how people ask what HE himself did for black folk as if he makes all the laws by himself. The president is a figurehead (just like in most cities with all this violence going down, the police chief is Black, thats done on purpose to have people say we cant get anything done. Those police chiefs have no power and are put there as the scapegoat) and they still have to go through the House and Senate to have laws passed. Guess who are the people in the House/Senate? Mostly old/white men who arent gonna pass anything for Black people for us to prosper.
So the question is: if any bills that Obama put up for a vote got rejected in the Senate, what is/was he suppose to do? What were you looking for him to do then?
thats the same as any president....
with all he has to juggle do you REALLY think a sitting president is sitting in the oval office writing policy?
no he has a team that brings shyt to him.....sure he has an agenda...but the team makes it happen.....
exactly, Republicans did everything they could do to block him just because he was black and a democrat. And what he said was true a lot of thing he did trump undid or tried to undo. if you don't have a person with the same mindset as president for a long period of times it will always be back and forth.
as for why trump got away with so much shyt is because of white privilege and he played by his own rules. Look at how the election went he gives zero fukks
there is a reason why Obama and Michelle are loved all over the world.
No it didnt Are we in the same country?
Trump did more to opress folks than he did for his "chosen pp" aka cacs.
They still dint have a wall, his ppl even got arrested for finessing cacs.
Factories are still leaving America.
Coal mining still dying.
The wealth gap grew.
Opioids still running train through middle America.
When Rona hit, Trump lied to us and now middle America is currently being hit hard than most nations in the WORLD.
Cacs are worried now more than ever about a race war.
Cac birthrates are still dropping.
His Administration tried its damnest to take away Healthcare with no back up plan before the plague hit.
Bush flexed Presidential power more than Trump.
The only thing he did for cacs is allow them to cac in peace. Winning isnt a victory to these ppl, seeing others suffer is. Thats the only scenario where Trump did more for his ppl than Obama.
Well *with the fingers and long pause*. I still fukk with Obama fukk all yall nikkas
Are the pro Trumpsters in this thread cacs? Their vernacular is a giveaway.
nikka is it a fact or not Trump did ridiculous shyt and broke laws, passed almost whatever he felt and was not checked for it and if he was got away with it. how is that proping him up when that actually happened if anything shows that presidents can get away with a fukk ton of shyt if they base will back them no matter what
See?^^ simple negro logic. No ones scared of stepping on cac toes, but look at who he was surrounded by in office. How many influential black senators and other power players were around him that would’ve helped him push reparations? Dem or Repube, they’re all crackers in the end...they still don’t give a shyt about you. Something revolutionary will have to happen in order for reps to happen. Yous a new fool of you think a single mulatto was going to give you that..
I’m asking for specifics so I could see where they ended up and if they released any post-term information on how things were and how they could have done things differently.
While he was president, the GOP blocked at least 500 bills. Im sure a good amount of them were to help us black people, but if the white Senate wont pass anything, what is he suppose to do?
Obama: GOP blocked 500 bills
The Victory of ‘No’
This interview is proof positive why I could never bail blame him for coming up short on anything. He is fully aware of how white America thinks and yet still has to govern in a way that pulls something across the finish line. Remember this Charlemagne nor Envy could ever be elected and definitely not reelected
negged for common sense
Envy actually the one that asked
