Obama Will Announce Initiative to Empower Young Black Men [Trayvon Martin Anniversary]
NY Times ^ | 2/27/14 | Michael D Shear

Posted on 02/27/2014 2:19:33 PM PST by SoFloFreeper

For much of Barack Obama’s presidency, he has sought to avoid being defined by his race or gender, often emphasizing that he is the leader of all Americans. On Thursday, Mr. Obama will use the power of his office to focus on helping young black men succeed.

Stymied by Congress on many of the economic policies he considers central to the lives of blacks, Mr. Obama is seeking to prod nonprofit foundations, business groups and civic leaders to provide more opportunities for a struggling part of the American family.

His new “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative is aimed at finding ways in which business and civic leaders can intervene at just the right moment to keep young black men and other men of color on a successful course.

...joining the [Clown] on Thursday will be business leaders, including Magic Johnson from Magic Johnson Enterprises, Glenn Hutchins of Silver Lake Partners, Adam Silver of the National Basketball Association and Thomas Tull of Legendary Entertainment. Gen. Colin Powell, Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago and former Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg of New York will also be there, officials said.

Colin Powell, eh? Huh. Imagine that.

Some clown from the NBA, eh? Isn't that something.

This is a tacit admission of Lopsided Black Violence against others. No doubt the media gloss over this.

The unemployment rate for young black men is over 50%, primarily because of the minimum wage. Obama wants to raise the minimum wage, which will make the situation even worse.

I have been avoiding business’s and charities that have anything to do with Mr. Neutral or his charming ball and chain period. So I do like it when they highlight the players in Mr. Nuetrals plans I just add them to my loooooooooooong list.
And why is only for black people?

Can't believe anyone other than those who think he is Jesus would believe a word of this statement. The Slimes used to be more subtle with its lies and misinformation.
