    Study: Black Americans Feel Less Empowered Under Obama Than They Once Did

    By Elizabeth Flock
    October 17, 2012

    Four years after Barack Obama was elected president, this is not exactly a "post-racial" America.

    A new study from Washington University in St. Louis finds that under Obama, many black Americans feel less free than whites when it comes to political participation.

    From 2005 to 2011, only 45 percent of blacks said they believed the government would allow them to make a public speech, while 67 percent of whites believed they could, the study found.

    The study found that while the election of Obama initially boosted feelings of political empowerment among black Americans, those sentiments significantly faded in the years that followed—especially among conservative and religious blacks.

    These two groups make up a large segment of the black population, with 56 percent of blacks identifying as "born again," and 39 percent of blacks as "somewhat conservative," according to the study.

    (CNN) – “Are you better off now than you were four years ago?" That commonly-asked question of modern presidential elections is being answered in the negative by some African-Americans.

    [:54] “The last four years for me, have been difficult. They’ve been hard.”

    Debate Shows Obama's an 'African' Stuck in the '70s

    By The Drive-By Pundit

    I was astonished. Not just me, but my son and his fiancée, who is fresh out of the 'hood. As if rehearsed, we all simultaneously leaped from our seats, hooting in total derision, loudly wondering what "hometown" he was talking about -- Nairobi?

    Get this: the first "black" president of the United States, the man who worked as a South Side community organizer in Chicago, really believes that "folks" in the ghetto are still running around in afros, dashikis, and platform shoes, ducking behind Buick Electra 225s while taking potshots at each other with zip guns and .22s, once commonly referred to as "Saturday Night Specials." Seriously?

    Obama couldn't be more mistaken if he added that black gangbangers also schedule nightly rumbles with straight razors and switchblades after the malt shop closes.

    AP poll: A slight majority of Americans are now expressing negative view of blacks

    By Associated Press, Oct 27, 2012 03:49 PM EDT

    WASHINGTON — Racial attitudes have not improved in the four years since the United States elected its first black president, an Associated Press poll finds, as a slight majority of Americans now express prejudice toward blacks whether they recognize those feelings or not.

    Those views could cost President Barack Obama votes as he tries for re-election, the survey found, though the effects are mitigated by some people’s more favorable views of blacks.

    Barack Obama’s Racist Campaign Ad To Black Voters


    by Ulsterman on June 13, 2012

    Why must a man whose mother was white feel the need to talk down to African American voters this way? Is it out of some self-perceived sense of superiority over those he claims to “have their back”? And what of the rest of America Mr. President?

    times were tough during Reagan and Bush Sr. and during Nixon, Ford and Carter. It's called a recession.
