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.

It’s because racist Republicans have prevented him from magically solving every problem we face because they are racist.

I disagree.

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.

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.

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
for himself.

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.
