Skip to comments.Black voters look to leverage their loyalty [BWA HA HA HA! Good Luck with that!]

When black voters gave President Barack Obama 93 percent support on Election Day in defiance of predictions that they might sit it out this year, black leaders breathed a collective sigh of relief.
That encouraged those leaders to try to leverage more attention from both Obama and Congress. Although they waver over how much to demand from the president particularly in light of defeated GOP challenger Mitt Romney's assertion that Obama gave "gifts" to minorities in exchange for their votes they are delivering postelection wish lists to the president anyway.
"I think the president heard us loud and clear. The collective message was, 'Let's build on where we already are,'" the Rev. Al Sharpton told reporters after a White House meeting last week with a collection of advocates representing largely Democratic constituencies.

Slavery Reparations, baby!
I wants my 40 acres and a mule, homes!
>>I think the president heard us loud and clear. The collective message was, ‘Let’s build on where we already are
I think the president heard us loud and clear. The collective message was, ‘Give us more free stuff and tax someone else to pay for it’
Sorry people. You can take a seat in the back of the bus. The illegal alien and Latino lobby is growing faster and is far more sexy.
Good luck with that ..... Obama didn't do all that much for them when he needed their votes - now he doesn't need them at all. Obama trades on his 'black half' ancestry for immunity from anything and everything a 'white guy' president would be hounded with by the presstitutes. He grew up 'foreign', not within the civil rights movement - he has little in common with 'American blacks' and uses them shamelessly, but doesn't do much to improve their condition.
you are so right, obama has their vote he is employed for the next 4 years and they are so screwed. so are we for that matter just we know it.
“Beaten wife syndrome.”
Must be; the welfare reservations near me (especially Newark, NJ) are poorer and more violent than four years ago. Blacks in this country have nothing to cheer about; a lot that had started to make their way into the middle class just got shoved back onto the dependence plantation...
Yes they are!
Sharptongue doesn’t do anything for no reward.
He and Obama have one thing in common, they both have the ability to use blacks for their own advancement.
What person in their right mind would have believed a couple of years back that a cable news source would use Al Sharptongue as a journalist. Ludicruous
What person in their right mind would ever believe that an inexperienced racist Community Organiser would rise to be President. Even more ludicrous.
We're willing to be the racists we accuse everyone else of being if you'll just make Gubbmint my Baby Daddy.
We want more free ObamaPhones...and throw in some Olde English 800 too
Why would the morons think that gives them any leverage to ask for anything?
Hispanics will get pandered to now, the moron blacks will be pushed to the back of the short bus again.
The vast majority of them will be shoved back to the back of the bus by the Democrats.
The Democrats get exactly what they want from black voters. They get the votes and keep them in slavery. It’s been that way forever, why change things now?
Remember...Obama told Putin that he would be so much more "flexible," after the election.
Good luck with that.
Fools, he doesn’t need you anymore.
He didn’t give a crap about you when he KNEW he would need you. Why would he now when you no longer serve a purpose?
Proudly walking into brick walls since 1972
Just as Vigilante poster has said, the Hispanics/Latinos have way overpowered “African -Americans”, and the “African-Americans” have done , or said NOTHING to try to stop them. The Hispanics/Latinos don’t shoot and kill their brothers, and I would bet the abortions are miniscule too. So, African-Americans, take a back seat to the Hispanics/Latinos.
