Give The Black President A Pass

Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Rep. Emmanuel Cleaver said Sunday:
"If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House. There is a less-volatile reaction in the CBC because nobody wants to do anything that would empower the people who hate the president."
So, because Obama is black, he gets a pass on policies that have been nothing short than disastrous to blacks in America.  Maxine Waters should divert some of the anger she feels toward the Tea Party to her own party leadership. 

The more I hear from black politicians, the more I am convinced that they are a bunch of stooges who are relentlessly exploited by the Democratic Party, which has become a party of Wall Street and Ivy League elites, much like the Republican Party, who have no interest in solving the problems that blacks face in this country.  Democrats like having blacks, other minorities, and the poor helpless and dependent on Democratic politicians.

I believe that the CBC would do well to realize that blacks are on their own, and act to bolster their fellows themselves.  The government handouts and hands-up are not coming anytime soon.
