Today, as our nation kicks off African American History Month, the campaign is launching African Americans for Obama.
When President Obama took the oath of office, our economy was hemorrhaging jobs at a record pace. President Obama inherited a system that allowed a shrinking number of people to get ahead while the rest of us fell behind. But he stopped the bleeding and went to work for our community and our nation. Despite serious challenges, since 2009 restoring our shared values has helped us achieve real progress.

I guess the president is saying it's OK to launch a White Americans for Romney campaign (WAR). The president by proxy is indeed a divider and certainly not a uniter. At least we know where we stand.
Yeah!!! More voter fraud and people calling in sick the weeks before the election. I guess our GDP will have a slight uptick that week :-)
The correct date is 02/01/2012.
I guess I should have posted with a “BARF ALERT” sorry:(
This obama is the most racist clown on the Planet.
You’d never know he’s 1/2 White, guess he’s too ashamed to admit it.
he does is for the wrong reasons..
You’re absolutely right. I hope I don’t get busted for this error!
Well, they’ll have plenty of time to vote for him since so few of them have any jobs left.
Perhaps Romney should launch a site: “African Americans against Obama.” No wait....that would be racist.
This has been a story for about a month now and the original angst has died down, Is it racism ? I can’t say I might get banned.
But the verbiage accompanying this,”he stopped the bleeding”,”Despite serious challenges, since 2009 restoring our shared values has helped us achieve real progress.”,”
speak loudly about his accomplishments “.
Pure unadulterated, concentrated,pasteurised, homogenised,
Grade A, Premium , Horse dung.
OH MY! THAT would certainly make the headlines in Lame Stream Media!
Yeah, you’re being nice.....those and more all bald faced LIES!
So now we have “Black” History month AND African American History month? Isn’t that redundant?
But wait, there are no white Americans and Afro Americans...there’s no red America or blue America. There’s only the United States of America...right, Barry?
The man who despises America
He forgot to mention, it's out of a catapult, into misery and despair.
I believe they are one and the same. However the trend is to expand the celebration as it started as Negro History Week.
Excerpt from Lisa Vox, former About.com Guide
The Origins of Black History Month
African Americans quickly took up Negro History Week, and by the 1960s, at the height of the Civil Rights Movement, American educators, both white and black, were observing Negro History Week. At the same time, mainstream historians had begun to expand the American historical narrative to include African Americans (as well as women and other previously ignored groups). In 1976, as the US was celebrating its bicentennial, the ASALH expanded the traditional week-long celebration of African-American history to a month, and Black History Month was born.
That same year, President Gerald Ford urged Americans to observe Black History Month, but it was President Carter who officially recognized Black History Month in 1978. With the federal government’s blessing, Black History Month became a regular event in American schools. By the opening decade of the 21st century, however, some were questioning whether Black History Month should be continued, especially after the election of the nation’s first African-American president, Barack Obama, in 2008. For instance, in a 2009 article, commentator Byron Williams suggested that Black History Month had become “trite, stale, and pedestrian rather than informative and thought provoking” and served only to relegate “ the achievements of African Americans to an adjunct status in American history.”
But others continue to argue that the need for Black History Month has not disappeared. Historian Matthew C. Whitaker observed in 2009, “Black History Month, therefore, will never be obsolete. It will always be in our best interest to pause and explore the meaning of freedom through the lived experiences of a people who forced America to be true to its creed and reaffirmed the American dream. Those who would eliminate Black History Month often miss the point.”
And the black sheep-le will line up and follow because of the color of his skin.
...and many non blacks will also follow for the same guilt ridden inspired reason.
It is sad when Americans cease to think for themselves and become complacent in their lives due to the rewards of living in America and for the most part never having to want.
Then follows the entitlement mentality and added fuel of class envy which leads the populace ever closer to the socialist abyss.
My grand-kids are gonna have a hell of a life.
nobama is such a racist puke.
Most of ‘m couldn’t find the African continent if you showed them a map of the world.
