Not until a collective effort is made towards increasing our GDP and population.
We have 40 million people and over one trillion dollars buying power. That should be enough shouldn't it? I mean gays are not as numerous or rich as us but they get shyt done.

Buying power used to purchase products/services from other races while NOT creating our own for them to spend their money on ?

As a collective we are f*cked..... but that shouldn't stop sole individuals from going out and buying businesses/starting businesses

Why ? He's a president of a 70% white country and their needs come first


America will never give a fukk about us
Now we're having a start to an honest discussion..

Obama is a distraction.. That's why I want him gone so we can focus on healing and rebuilding what we had before desegregation

I think breh might be trying to pull a fast one. A lot of this information is disingenuous or outright nonfactual. Maybe some of you scholars could also check over some these claims as well!





The Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 only reduced the disparity to 18 to 1 (from 100-to-1). It didn't eliminate the disparity entirely. (Penalties for powder offenses are unchanged.) However the legislation did also eliminate a mandatory minimum sentence for simple possession -- a significant advance in and of itself.

"Some critics of the crack sentences have pushed for complete elimination of the disparities."

The U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division is the institution within the federal government responsible for enforcing federal statutes prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion, and national origin. The Division was established on December 9, 1957, by order of Attorney General William P. Rogers, after the Civil Rights Act of 1957 created the office of Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, who has since then headed the division.

Yes this definitely worthwhile legislation which Obama passed that was well overdue for the black farmers!
:obama:



O.K, this is somewhat a benefit, however this program is for all Americans & not a program to exclusively assist blacks primarily.



Again, this is another regulation which is designed to help all Americans, not principally blacks.




"HBCUs May Sue Obama Administration Over New Student Loan Rules

Historically black colleges and universities are not ruling out a lawsuit against the Obama administration over new federal financial aid policies that disproportionately affect their students, the Washington Times reports.

New underwriting standards enacted in October 2011 to PLUS loans made it tougher for parents with lackluster credit to borrow money from the federal government for their child's college expenses. Families of students at HBCUs were twice as likely to use the program, according to the Associated Press, but previous borrowers were not grandfathered in with the old standards.

The change meant borrowers who currently hold loans would have their credit evaluated retroactively to cover the previous five years, rather than the previous 90 days, Inside Higher Ed reports.


With the policies now in effect and forcing some students out of college, HBCUs are considering legal action over the new rules."

Obama via Congress didn't fund the entire amount for the Smithsonian National Museum of African-American History.
"The museum is expected to cost about $500 million, with half of the funds being raised by the museum and half of the funds provided by Congress."

"The Obama administration may be the most diverse White House in the U.S. history", however Bill Clinton had more blacks in powerful Cabinet positions than Obama while George W. Bush had the same amount of blacks appointed to his Cabinet as Obama does currently.

You hit the nail on the head. Most of these initiatives weren't directly intended for the betterment of the black community. So any benefit obtained by blacks from the aforementioned initiative are merely incidental. Moreover, as you've indicated, some of these initiatives have harmed blacks and black businesses. Those listed initiatives are all part of the liberal/Democratic party talking points used to divert any and all attention and scrutiny from the slow yet certain eradication of the black community in modern America.

At this point, the black community is overrun by zombies and those who are awake are unfortunately few and far between.

:salute: at scrutinize these initiatives and not talking this BS at face value.

Man I swear this old generation of black folk being appeased by words and negro sprituals and not action disgusts me:scust:


:camby: We need to get these old nikkas out of here and let the younger black people take control of this movement

The only problem is that an overwhelming number of younger blacks are #newblacks and are just as misguided and delusional about white supremacy as some of the established black leadership that sold us down the river.

It's too late for that... we have crumbs now and won't let go to take over the bakery
A good ole racist white wing Republican congress and president that will strip away all entitlements and safety nets would be a catalyst..

One of the few remaining major powers a POTUS has is directing national dialogue via bully pulpit and subsequently proposing legislation. People can say or think whatever they want about legislation going through or not due to R controlled congress but he had ample time in his first term and 2 years into his second term to get things through if he wanted to. Like a good deal of other presidents, his true success can only be determined years after he leaves office. With that said, he has been contradictory on multiple issues since 2008 which isnt outside of the norm for any politician. His election in and of itself is far more of a "GOAT moment in american history" than anything he has done while being in office, though that isnt necessarily a bad thing in the long run since having a minority/black president was well overdue and will be looked at as a landmark moment in American history for as long as America exists.

You would think... but I'm not so sure. Black's are a group of people that can take too much of an ass whooping.

That would not be a strong enough catalyst
