PBS's Tavis Smiley made a comment Thursday that every African-American as well as liberal media member should sit up and take notice.
Appearing on Fox News's Hannity, Smiley said, "The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Tavis Smiley realizes what every other ethnic group in America realizes. We’re all going down under Obama.
well off the Odrama Plantation at any rate!
Im certain that hes not leaving the security of the demagog party
It’s because racist Republicans have prevented him from magically solving every problem we face because they are racist.
Don’t worry Tavis, whitey takin it up the butt too.
Tavis Smiley is now officially an Uncle Tom.
He has definitely gone of of Weight Watchers I had not seen him in years saw him on Hannity last night
When a nobody/wanabee like Tavis Smiley mocks you, it will leave a mark.
Gee!I wonder if Tavis Smiley will be voting Democrat the next time?Of Course he will.These LIBERAL people never learn.
It wont matter next time around they will still vote 94-96% for democrats.
hey Smiley, GFY, you supported him, you campaigned for him and you voted for him. Welcome to the table, here is your cr@p sandwich.
They have more food stamps, more medicaid, more Obamaphones, more TANF, more subsidized child care, and more Earned Income Credits.
By any progressive measure, the Baraqqi Regime is a major success for blacks.
Once they get reparations it will all be better.
Tavis, all people you racist mutt!
Frankly, so will every other “group” of Americans.
obama wanted the blacks to enter the social-economic class of the white suppressors. The only way he could do was to lower the standing of the white class, because the black class wasn’t (isn’t) educated enough to en masse join the white class.
what’s really sad is obama didn’t understand the depth of the chasm. Moreso, obama didn’t realize that his efforts to redistribute the wealth were going to fail, because he ended up creating a segment of society that simply lived off the largesse of the government, without creating goods and services that the money previously created. So now the econmy is dying a slow death, and there is no light at the end of the tunnel..
I doubt that. He probably wants reparations as the solutions.
Exactly! He needs to shut up and vote democrat.
Not quite. Travis does not give a crap about low income blacks, who’s
jobs are being taken by illegals. After all, Travis has got a good gig
He’s right. I live in a small Florida town with a steadily declining black population....because the fact that Obama killed small businesses and the construction industry (which hired laborers and semi-skilled tradesmen as well) and left a lot of these people without an income has made the younger ones simply leave. I’m not sure where they go.
Here’s the important thing to remember about Smiley: 340 days ago, he was stepping into a voting booth and casting a vote for Baraq Obama. The conclusion he is reaching here was just as valid 12 months ago.
