The stupid has reached cartoon levels: Trump Admin wants "Space Force"

Unemployment rate is a bit of a deceptive statistic. It only counts people who are actively looking for jobs. Lots of people looked for jobs for years and couldn't find one, so they are no longer looking and not counted. For all we know, the unemployment rate could be higher than ever.

Exactly, what you want to look at is the labor participation rate, and we know there were actually 7 millions of men missing from the labor market, especially black men.  What we are seeing is a rising number of law wage shitty jobs taking in some people who've been on the side line, but many people who are underemployed and not working at all, just out the labor market due to lack of opportunity.

Problem is, he isn't Black Jesus. There's a Congress. There are checks and balances that limit what he can do, and moreover, anything he could have done would easily have been reversed by Trump.

You also don't seem to have considered that Obama had to be everyone's president, not just Black America. If he bent the entire system towards us, the backlash and Trumpism would be even more embedded. You wanted him to be militantly Black and socialist to boot. Well that was never going to happen. If he had been, he never would have been elected.

This is the heart of my beef with liberals: YOU'RE TOTALLY NAIVE AND UNREALISTIC. How long do you think a Black President, bending the entire government in favor of Blacks, would have lasted? Sure as hell not 2 terms. Also, he's not God. He can't control what every corporation does, or what the economy does. Allen mentioned the unemployment rate for Blacks. It's at a historic low. You think Trump did that? Hell no. He's riding Obama's coat tails.

I don't think that you or Byron Allen have a firm grip on the realities of that office. You can't just wave a magic wand and end discrimination.

Yes Shotgun, I want Obama to literally be God, that is exactly what I was thinking.

Now back to talking real politics.  I literally gave you a list of things Obama could have done (and the vast majority of them were WITHOUT congress) and your response is there is a congress that would stop him, there are checks and balances.   Rolleyes

Obama did not need congress to get more loans via the SBA which is not controlled by congress but him to black businesses.

Please tell me how congress made Obama use his powers to "  Obama abolished the 1% quota of federal contracts to go to black businesses in his FIRST term." using checks and balances?

Please tell me how congress could have used their powers to prevent Obama from " Obama could have issued thousands more pardons and commuted far more sentences than he did.  He could have literally issued tens of thousands of pardons to every non-violent drug offender in the nation. "

Further, please tell me how congress prevented Obama from "He should have settled the suit with Dr. Claud Anderson with the freedman indians treaty and adam and onis treaty issues".  When or where did Boehner or Ryan ever say Obama, you better not settle that suit?

"You also don't seem to have considered that Obama had to be everyone's president, not just Black America."

This old retired canard from Obama is the worse line he ever put out. We live in a system of representative democracy, if midgets come out and vote for you in 90% you go to Washington and represent midgets.  It wasn't whites, hispanics, latinos, gays, peglegs, humpbacks, midgets, who turned the Republican states blue so he could get elected with the largest wave of democrats since FDR, it was BLack America.  It was his job to be the president of Black America because that is who voted for him in the largest numbers.  You go look at the white women law makers, white male ones, hispanics, asians, jews etc, they are representing the communities that vote them into office in the large numbers of their own ethnic group.  Only black politicians represent everyone, every other ethnic group represent their own kind.  Luis Guiterrez doesn't go to Washington to represent everyone, he goes to represent hispanics and latinos.  I don't understand how some black people can be so stuck on stupid.

"If he bent the entire system towards us, the backlash and Trumpism would be even more embedded. You wanted him to be militantly Black and socialist to boot. Well that was never going to happen. If he had been, he never would have been elected. "

You already got a backlash and Trumpism and by your own admission he was for everybody, so how is that working out for you?  To be militantly black and socialist is a good thing, because to be militant means you are concerned, and when you look at the 50% unemployment for black youth in many of these communities, how can you be anything but concerned for fixing these problems.  And how the hell in a country where 96% of all the resources have been redistributed via slavery, jim crow, segregation, new jim crow and white racism into the hand of white people is a jobs guarantee and UBI "bending an entire system towards blacks" yet the native indians get $20,000 a year from the BIA every year for every Indian man woman and child is normal, jews and japs getting reparations is normal, illegals getting free education, healthcare, housing and legal status is normal but a black person wanting equal treatment is some militant shabouki socialist.  No more militant than when Dr. King said we are going to washington to collect our checks.  We live in a country where 50% of the white population was given free land for being white and lives off of stolen black capital.  WE cannot compete as a group without government intervention, we have nothing to compete with.  What we tried to build was stolen, almost all of the richest families are living off of what their parents and great grandparents built over a century ago.



YOU'RE TOTALLY NAIVE AND UNREALISTIC. How long do you think a Black President, bending the entire government in favor of Blacks, would have lasted? Sure as hell not 2 terms. Also, he's not God.

I'm not a liberal, I despise them for their clever closeted racism.  This was never my argument, but for the sake of it, I'll bite and pretend it was. Explain to me what bending an entire government in favor of blacks in the USA would even look like.  And so what if he wasn't re-elected, he is elected to get a job done, REPRESENT THOSE WHO PUT HIM THERE and get the most he can for them while here is there.  Whites had over 40 presidents of white America, maybe its time the blacks get one.  Who said he had to control what every corporation does?  He just had to use his executive orders, settle a few cases, use his power to license banks to stop them from discriminating.  

Trump sure as hell is the president of far right white America.  Funnily, I never hear anyone say "O he can't just be president of white [rich] America".  Being neutral in such an environment is tantamount to being a white supremacist because the alt-right trumpsters lie so much that neutral is to the far left, not in the middle.  Its like during the 1850s, neutral was not well we will have some slavery, with some laws to treat the slaves a little bit less savagely or no more importation of new ones.  No, neutral is banning it and giving blacks their rights, which I guess at that time seemed like a radical militant far left black position.

You need to understand whites would have elected Trump, no matter what Obama did, the guy was basically a right wing Republican, Obamacare came from the far right wing heritage foundation as the "free market" alternative to universal healthcare in the 1990s.  Obama didn't do shit for blacks, and if that is the kind of candidates who the Democrats are going to put out like that and Clinton, they can expect to lose big league in the future blacks are not going to carry water for all these other groups anymore.  If blacks don't get nothing monetary out of voting while every other race does, then fuck it, let trump win.

^^I get what you're saying but why use different types of fonts in your post? It looks like that you pick a random place to change your font.

It seems to happen when you break up a block of text and make a quote, I got tired of fixing it at this point.
