Just wait until black Americans sit out and don’t vote, Obama will blame them, instead of his record, for his loss. Under Obama, all the numbers in the black community have gotten worse. Black unemployment, long-term black unemployment, poverty, childhood poverty and food stamp use are at record highs.
I guess Obama is taking a page out of Morgan Freeman’s playbook by claiming he’s not president of black America. Must be due to very white momma?
How do you respond to criticism that your administration hasn’t done enough to support black businesses?
My general view has been consistent throughout, which is that I want all businesses to succeed. I want all Americans to have opportunity. I’m not the president of black America. I’m the president of the United States of America, but the programs that we have put in place have been directed at those folks who are least able to get financing through conventional means, who have been in the past locked out of opportunities that were available to everybody. So, I’ll put my track record up against anybody in terms of us putting in place broad-based programs that ultimately had a huge benefit for African American businesses.
