Yes, Obama, Black Parents Do Have a Responsibility, But What’s the Responsibility of Black Presidents?

Obama-hand-on-mouth

by Yvette Carnell

In 2010, my heart sunk as I can across the Business Insider headline, This Was the Worst Day of Obama’s Presidency. It was my first realization that the mainstream media had finally glimpsed the Obama that existed behind all the Madison Ave. “brand” marketing.

During one of his first real fights with Republicans, President Obama couldn’t muster the fortitude to manage the troops or the message, so Obama, a second string politician, brought in the big guns–Bill Clinton–to save the day.  “With Bernie Sanders speaking on the Senate floor about the tax deal, and then the incident where he got pushed out of the briefing room by Bill Clinton, Obama has never seemed smaller or less relevant,” wrote Business Insider’s Joe Weisenthal.


Weisenthal was wrong about one thing though, since he predicted that Obama had nowhere to go but up. Obama’s star hasn’t stopped falling, and for me, rock bottom came yesterday, as the President of the United States of America announced “My Brother’s Keeper”, a charity and non-compulsory initiative to aid black boys. We elected a president who promised transformation, but instead, we got a man who held an afternoon press event for the sole purpose of rendering black boys a national charity case.

In his article “What the Hell Is Obama’s Presidency For?”, Gary Younge observed that during his presidency, LBJ would “sign the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, launch the war on poverty and introduce Medicaid (medical assistance for low-income families) and Medicare (for seniors). That’s what his presidency was for.”

But Obama is no LBJ, and today, we saw Obama morph before our very eyes, transforming himself from Commander-In-Chief to Fundraiser-In-Chief. Watching a president who’d set the bar so high during his 2008 campaign relegating himself to the role of non-profit head, thereby admitting his own impotency as it relates to laying out a vision and persuading Congress to act, was difficult.

President Obama could have used his first 100 days to both lay out his vision and strongarm Congress to enact it, especially considering that this young president, with the hopes of America on his shoulders, had been blessed with a Democratic majority upon entering the White House. Instead, Obama meandered about for an entire year, fumbling all the while, then finally cobbling together a health care law that most Americans don’t understand and regard with lukewarm enthusiasm.

With that in mind, I was mesmerized as I watched a president with so few accomplishments under his belt again discussing the responsibility of black parents to rear their black boys. Yes, black mothers and fathers should parent their children, but what is the responsibility of the first black president? Is it his job to play daddy to all the black boys in America who don’t have men in their lives, or is the job of president something wholly different?

During his speech yesterday, in the midst of a flood of smiling black faces, including the parents of Trayvon Martin, President Obama eluded to the political obstacles that stand in the way of enacting legislation to address the plight of young black men, saying that there is no appetite for it in Congress. But there was no appetite for a young black upstart politician out of Chicago until Obama’s brand managers convinced a majority of American voters that they had the palate for it.

When has Obama ever attempted to mount an effort for legislative action as redress for the white supremacist policies that have historically and disproportionately impacted African-Americans?

But the hypocrisy didn’t end there. As if watching Obama, a man who has been wholly irresponsible at executing his agenda (what agenda?), call on black boys to be more responsible weren’t bad enough, we were forced to watch another incomprehensible train wreck of a spectacle. CNN’s Don Lemon, who went out of his way to cosign Fox News Bill O’Reilly’s pathologizing of black culture, and recently gave his blessing to the NYPD’s stop and frisk program, was front and center, choking up at President Obama having offered a helping hand to black boys. It was irksome to watch these two black men, Obama and Lemon, who’ve so vastly misunderstood how, with their finger wagging rhetoric, they’ve both been used as tools to thwart the forward momentum of any legislative action that could have actually provided a solid foundation for black youth.

So now black youth are left to be viewed by the world at large as one big charity case. Also happening now, as we head into the 2014 midterms, the Daddy of the Democratic Party, Bill Clinton,  is headed out again to the campaign trail, to do what Obama cannot— sway the faithful. Clinton has no choice but to help since Obama has no coattails and no influence over the very people who invested so much in him in 2008.

So we find ourselves back where we started, back to that article in 2010, which speculated that Obama had never seemed “smaller or less relevant.”  It was yesterday, not that day in the White House briefing room in 2010, that Obama was at his smallest and least relevant. Obama knows all too well the responsibility of black parents and boys, but what he’s not yet grappled with is the responsibility of black presidents.

Tonight on CNN, and on every Thursday night there is a new series called "Gangland Chicago". It is documenting the problems in the Inner City of Chicago, talking with the citizens who live there. One of the most alarming issue, is the closing of so many schools, the students have to travel thru Gang Controlled areas to access the schools that are left open. Their very lives are threatened everyday, and this includes children from the ages of 6 thru 18. Parents are extremely frustrated, and this series is a real eye opener to those who have no clue as to what is really going on in Chicago. This series is badly needed to address the real, ongoing problems of the Inner City families who live there.I hope this show gets high ratings, so the public can be informed of the FACTS. This is a documentary, and not a reality show.

THANKS for the clip of TERRY ANDERSON it was good to see him once again; I'M from SO. CEN. L/A and I remember his SUNDAY radio shows and he told us long ago what would happen to us if we went down this road and we didn't listen and now black people lost the most prosperous black communities in the country as a result of not being able to face the truth and live in the real world.


I don't know what's coming next but I do know that it will be painful because that's the only way we seem to learn.

WASHINGTON — President Obama spoke in unusually personal terms at the White House on Thursday about how he got high as a teenager and was at times indifferent to school as he deplored what he called America’s numbness to the plight of young black men.

Drawing on the power of his own racial identity in a way he seldom does as president, Mr. Obama sought to connect his personal narrative about growing up without a father to that of a generation of black youth in the United States who he said faced higher odds of failure than their peers.

“I didn’t have a dad in the house,” Mr. Obama said as he announced a $200 million, five-year initiative, My Brother’s Keeper, to help black youth. “And I was angry about it, even though I didn’t necessarily realize it at the time. I made bad choices. I got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. I didn’t always take school as seriously as I should have. I made excuses. Sometimes I sold myself short.”

Mr. Obama said the idea for My Brother’s Keeper occurred to him in the aftermath of the killing of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager whose death two years ago sparked a roiling national debate about race and class. He called the challenge of ensuring success for young men of color a “moral issue for our country” as he ticked off the statistics: black boys who are more likely to be suspended from school, less likely to be able to read, and almost certain to encounter the criminal justice system as either a perpetrator or a victim.

If a foreigner read some of these posts they would think that there has been a president at sometime in this countries history who fought for justice for Black people and we had an equal social and economical existence - but there hasn't been!!! and there hasn't been anyone who has been brave enough to go against the core except President Obama. But I suppose he would look like a bad leader because he's trying to help people who don't want to be helped and who only voted in the election of the presidency because they haven't educated themselves on voting for local government so this President congregates daily with many men who make no qualms about the fact that they hate him and will never embrace the fact that he is their superior - yet he stands his ground! And again, I applaud him!! If you're only brave in front of people who look like you, that doesn't make you brave, that only makes you comfortable in your environment.

This may be 'alarming' to u, Carol, but it's really old news to those of us who rely on black news media outlets to inform us. I've told my own sister, to no avail, to stop relying on news outlets like CNN to inform her about what's REALLY goin' on. CNN is a major mainstream media outlet and they serve the agenda of their corporate-controllers. Maybe u, and my sister, should start seeking out more BLACK-OWNED and CONTROLLED news media outlets instead of all those white ones. I mean, who cares whether CNN gets high ratings for this program, what we need to be askin' is why they've suddenly decided to cover this story?  School closings have been occurring at an increasing rate in damn near EVERY major city in this nation for years now, but CNN is just now deciding to do a documentary on it?   BIG DEAL.



Here's a few stories that may give u more insight into the issue of public school closings, and these come from a black-owned and operated news service that we should be supporting. I''ve made a donation to their site b4, but I'm gonna start donating regularly bcuz the info they provide is very valuable to me.

@MichaelLofton  Just so you KNOW, there is NOTHING WRONG with the President visiting his Irish relatives in Ireland. He has also visited his relatives in Kenya, and he travels the world as most Presidents do. So many of your videos have nothing to do with the subject at hand, and are in effect nothing but propaganda. 


I also notice whether it is accidental, or on purpose that many of your remarks are also stated by Sean Hannity, and Rush Limbaugh. Referring to Ted Cruz is a HUGE RED FLAG where your loyalities lie. You should give some sincere thought to hosting on Fake Fox Lies, as I am sure they would welcome you with open arms. And NO FACTS are allowed there, you would love it!

Like yourself I've been here, LA,  long enough to live through the major demographic shifts from Black to Hispanic, namely illegal alien.  Although I was only 11 years old at that time, I lived with other family members just east of Main Street, on 120th Street, during the '65 Watts Riot.  Fremont, Jefferson, Washington, Manual Arts, Locke, Compton, Jordan High Schools used to have a predominately Black student body, and many of the teachers were Black as well.  Not today though, now its damn near all Hispanic, many being illegal aliens.

I'm from Baltimore, MD.  Similar activity, as it pertains to US born Black men and women being displaced by foreign nationals is also taking place in Baltimore, Detroit, Atlanta, New Orleans, etc, etc.

I was listening to Hannity the other day as it concerns Spike Lee not wanting outside interests buying into Harlem, NY, for the similar reasons of developers pricing Blacks out of existence.  I agree with Spike Lee's quest to keep outside developers out of Harlem.  "He or she who bears the cross wears the crown"....meaning the actual individuals who take the risks, and make the investment control a community. 

It would be of more benefit to the Black community if the Black affluent, middle class, working class all work together to improve the quality of life for the entire Black community to keep outsiders from taking over the Black community.

@MichaelLofton... You've been ranting endlessly for the last couple months here, in an attempt to project your mindset and personal issues upon others. You've expounded upon your personal life, job situation or the lack there of, and the wrong done to your Mother. Its really sad that you're totally oblivious your (bipolar like) obsession.

You'll never have "A Hero" in your lifetime let alone a Black One... for all the obvious reasons.

Might I suggest with (no pun intended and) all sincerity that you seek professional help and become your own "Hero"... Save Yourself!

I'm not bashing you nor am I criticizing you... I'm just as much for helping our Black people as you are, and you too need realize (as so many others here have reading you know) that all your rage is within you... Its really sad that people like yourself are more times than not their own worst enemy, and haven't got a clue.

@Watchful @CarolParks  I find these very informing and a good news source. I don't get my main news from T.V. but rather reading different news sites online including News reports from other countries and around the world. I also receive military news reports, and po0litical reports from different sources.


While I believe these sites that you have put on here are very credible; like most they also have a bias. But, withstanding that they are certainly worth donations to keep them going. So thank-you, I now have another news source.  I also checked out the radio stations as many times I am traveling for long periods of time, and like to listen to something informative.

 First, and foremost I really like your sister! ;-D


Now, I am no expert on Chicago being that I am on the West Coast in S.F. But, yes I knew of the many school closings there and in other large cities. What I didn't know was how they had to travel thru such dangerous areas. I know, I'm a bit naive'. Just like most of the population who no doubt does not know this either. 


CNN has horrible ratings as of late, but still I am hopeful that a lot of people will see this. I don't care where the information comes from as long as it is factual, and helps spread information so people can make informed decisions when they vote, or make decisions that affect schools, and budgets. The word needs to get out to as many as possible what is happening to our children. There is way too much ignorance in this country on these vital subjects.


Now later tonight I will read all the sites that you were so kind to list for me here. I may also donate to them after reading and seeing what they stand for. I absolutely believe in supporting Black owned Business's for many reasons. And I do support them. I'm not a millionaire, but I do what I can. 


I will be watching the CNN show at 9pm my time, and I hope it turns out to be what they are presenting in their previews. Again, I have many causes but children are always at the top of my list. Thanks again for the links! I will enjoy reading them later tonight. Enjoy your evening!

@CarolParks

You are entitled your opinion no matter how misguided.   The videos are not propaganda to the inner-city residents who express them,.  These individuals know for a fact that Harvard educated Barack Obama does not  give a "rat's @ss" about improving the conditions in the "inner-city".  

I make use of invaluable information no matter where it comes from. 

There is nothing that you or your ObamaCrat supporters can say or do that can compete with the information that I have acquired from personal sources, the Tea Party movement, actual experience, listening to Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, Lou Dobbs, living in an inner-city environment, actually witnessing the sleaze and greed of Democratic Party affiliated Black leaders, etc., etc. 

Democratic Party liberal ideology has been rampant in the inner-city for decades, and what has it done but create and expand the dismal conditions that exist in Chicago, Illinois, Detroit, MI, South Los Angeles, Compton, CA, etc.

I don't accept advice from any liberal Caucasian, such as yourself, that will not improve my station in life. 

The Republican Party is not responsible for breaking up Black family structures for profit, playing games of deceit when petitioned for redress, promoting "Food Stamps/AFDC" benefits over gainful employment, using poverty pimps to keep the Black community down, etc.

The exception being no good Clarence Thomas, a Republican.  Rush Limbaugh/Hannity can give praise to Clarence Thomas, but I vehemently disagree with this assessment, because Clarence Thomas is as treasonous to innocent Black men and women violated by rogue police officers and unethical city prosecutors as being treasonous can be!

Here again, your President Barack Obama, and multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus....AKA....the Congressional Black Clueless have the influence to at least make a recommendation to Congress to impeach Clarence Thomas.  These individuals loyalty must be with the Democratic Party and not the Black community, because a responsible Black leader who truly served individuals like me, would definitely take action to impeach Clarence Thomas.

You bet BO belongs with his Irish relatives, illegal alien advocates, Planned Parenthood, etc., etc., because most inner-city Blacks, and other like minded Black men and women know that BO is not serving the Black community!

@MichaelLofton @CarolParks  You must KNOW that President Obama came into office after GW Bush, had just destroyed this country, & the economy. UNLIKE GW Bush who had a HUGE SURPLUS to work with after he came into office after Clinton. 


Because of our President, he stopped this country from going into the worst depression ever in the history of man. And he did it with a GOP CONGRESS after Nov. 2010. 


We also have not had a 911 or anything close to it since he has been President. He has kept us safe, even got Bin Laden. And UNLIKE the GOP, he saved The Auto Industry & the thousands of jobs in Detroit that were associated with it, and the jobs all across the country that were associated with the auto industry.


He also put in place a plan to save your home if you were being foreclosed. I personally know of a few people who took advantage of it and got a 2% rate. That was for everyone in this country. Now there is HARP, a Government program to help people stay in their homes.


He did a lot, including giving money back to a lot of middle income, & poor people on their taxes. Programs which gave you $8,000 towards a new car, $10,000 towards a first time buyers new home. And another $10,000 to help you open a business. 


And despite the lies from the GOP, the Healthcare Act is doing a great job for people who never had insurance and needed medical care.


I know you will hate him no matter what, but you really are in denial knowing what he has done and denying it. 


I notice you have not said one word about Darrell Issa, one of the most corrupt people in Congress. Or Dick Chenny, GW Bush who profitted over two Illegal Wars. And Thousands were killed and maimed. You have no problems with the real crooks in America. Check out the CROOK Darrell Issa,


The Strange Career of Darrell Issa



As you probably know, radical right-wing Republican U.S. Representative Darrell Issa has promised the fanatics and haters who make up the Republican "base" that if the Republicans win control of Congress this November, he will use his position to launch one investigation after another of President Obama and his White House staff. The objective will be simple: to destroy Obama and possibly set up the "grounds" for the impeachment of the President. In the twisted, sick world of the Radical Right, no Democrat has the right to govern--ever. Issa intends to see to it that Barack Obama does not get to govern our country, and he intends to send a message: this is what will happen to EVERY Democrat who has the temerity to win the Presidency. Therefore, I thought it might be good to turn my gaze on Issa's career, to see what kind of man we're up against. I think you'll be as appalled and disgusted as I am.

DARRELL THE CON MAN; DARRELL THE CAR THIEF?

In this article from the San Francisco Chronicle, we see the interesting story of Darrell and his brother, who set up a phony car theft and then sold the "stolen" car to a Mercedes-Benz dealer.

In the San Jose case, Issa, who at the time was a 27-year-old U.S. Army officer, and William Issa, 29, were arrested by San Jose police on a felony auto-theft charge in February 1980.

They were accused of a scheme in which Issa's brother allegedly sold Issa's cherry-red Mercedes 240 to Smythe European Motors in San Jose for $13,000 cash and three $1,000 traveler's checks. Within hours, Issa reported the car stolen from a lot at the Monterey airport, near his Army post at Fort Ord.

Issa and his brother pleaded not guilty. A judge ordered them to stand trial on felony charges, saying he had a "strong suspicion" that the men had committed the crime, according to the records.

The case was not prosecuted because the DA didn't think he had a strong enough case, even though strong suspicions still surrounded the Issa brothers. Darrell was also suspected in involvement with two other car thefts, but he blamed his brother William for both of them and denied any wrongdoing. At the time the Chronicle published this article, by the way, Issa was spearheading the movement to recall California Governor Gray Davis, a movement which eventually led to the disastrous governorship of Arnold Schwarzenegger. You will recall that this recall campaign aided and abetted Enron's looting of California via the phony "electricity crisis".

DARRELL THE TOOL OF BIG BUSINESS; DARRELL THE ARSONIST?

The Media Matters Action Network has assembled a synopsis of Issa's wretched, scandal-plagued political career right here. Among the interesting findings:

With or without my input reality speaks to the contrary, as this concerns Barack Obama being competent and actually using his influence as the 1st Black President to serve inner-city residents.

The contempt for Obama and other snake oil salesperson forked tongue sleazy Black elected leaders have every to do with BO's and/or other misfits contempt for "Oath of Office", treason for American citizens, and disdain for the Black community, and nothing to do with hatred.

Barack " the Magic Negro" Obama, should leave office.....tomorrow would not be too soon, so that he can spend more time visiting his "Irish" relatives.

I finished watchin' that first episode of the 'CHICAGOLAND' series last night and must i say, I don't see much good comin' outta that series. Sure, a few more ppl may be made aware of the situation, but will that lead to any real and meaningful changes? Will it stop the school closings? I think we both know the answers to those questions and they don't bode well for those students and parents in Chicago and other cities across the country. This is part of an agenda to close public schools in favor of charter schools that actually started back during the Clinton administration and it's been implemented at an increasing rate with each successive administration, including the current one. This is just a transfer of the public education system in the inner city over to for-profit private control, and frankly, I don't see it being stopped unless the masses of parents take a stand. Hell, even that may not be enough to stem the tide in the push for charter schools.

I asked you because you read a lot of different sources, and I thought you might know the answer. A friend of mine said she thought it might be that the Gangs are intimidating the younger kids to get them to join early. But, who really knows. In the middle of the documentary those group of young kids were scared to death to cross that field to go to school saying they were afraid because of getting jumped. I took it to mean Gangs. But, again who ever is in charge of all of this should have thought about bringing in school buses. 


I'm not optimistic either, seeing that the parents, students, and the teachers Union were all pushing back on Rahm Emanuel's closing of the schools. He got what he wanted and left only 3 schools open out of the 53.


I see what you are saying about closing the Public Schools and opening the Charter ones because of money. Yes, money talks, and everyone else walks. I would like to see Rahm Emanuel walk at night thru a Gang neighborhood and see how he would like it. I'm betting he would have a real different perspective if he did.

Well, if it's enlightenment that ppl r seeking then those tv networks r the last places they should be looking to find it. 


Also, Oprah shouldn't need to contacted in order to help those students. If she really cared she would be the one doing the contacting IMO. Besides, if memory serves me, she had her own issues with allegations of abuse at that school she opened in Azania(South Afrika). So, maybe it's best that she didn't try to help with the situation in Chicago, she may have only exacerbated the situation.


As to u're question, I'm not sure y u feel I would be able to answer that for u. Seeing how I don't live there I don't feel qualified to offer an informed opinion on that aspect of the issue. I do wonder, however, if gang members r actually 'going after' those students or whether they're just getting caught up in the crossfire between rival gangs in the neighborhoods where those schools happen to be located. If some children r being targeted it could have more to do with factors other than gang rivalries. I don't think it's wise to assume that every incident that occurs in neighborhoods like that r gang-related just bcuz the media and police say they r.


The bottom line for me is that this is obviously a serious issue for those students and their parents and it's pretty obvious that those who r in a position to correct or improve the situation have done nowhere near enough to resolve the problems that have existed there for some time now. I think the residents there will have to place much more pressure on those in power if they're ever to see any significant improvement. But, frankly, I'm not optimistic about things changing very much.

Well, yes I was surprised that they sat on this Doc. I don't usually watch any of these Media sites, CNN, CBS, ABC, etc. unless it is something that attracts my attention. I told you I get my news from various sources. The reason I say that I like when it is on CNN or CBS, etc. is because the majority of people watch these networks, and thus they would be enlightened to know what is going on.


That is just my opinion that the more people know the better.


And thank-you for putting up the link. 


Yes, I do believe Oprah would help if contacted. She herself came out of poverty in Mississippi. She has built those schools in Africa, which I am sure is great, I just wish she had helped the kids in Chicago first. We need to focus on our own here at home first, before helping others in other countries. Not that I don't think it's wonderful, but we have too many problems here.


You never answered my question as to why would Gang members go after such young children?  I know I am not very knowledgable on this, but I really would like to know.

Look, Rahm Emanuel came to Chicago to become mayor so he could implement the proliferation of so-called 'public charter schools', which, as I've said b4, is what all these public school closings that r occurring all across this nation r really all about. It's about M.O.N.E.Y.  Charter schools r privately-owned so referring to them as 'public' is a misnomer to begin with. Plus, they will use many of those closed schools for condo conversions or tear them down and build something else on the land they currently occupy. Mayor Emanuel couldn't care less about the education of poor black children. And I sure hope u don't think Oprah gives a damn either. Hell, she probably doesn't even spend much time there anymore and if she does it ain't spent tryna prevent the closure of those schools. 


BTW, it's no need to get mad at CNN, like I told u in my first post in response to u mentioning the series, y did it take them so long to finally address this issue? Now u tell us that they sat on this docu for a year. That says alot about how much of a priority it was for them. And then u say u wish '60 Minutes' had aired it. I can't help but chuckle at that bcuz in some ways CBS is even worse than CNN. Y'all need to stop watchin' those networks if u really wanna know what's really goin' on. 


At any rate, if anyone else here is interested in watchin' the first episode of the series here's a link.

Ok, part two. This was done last year, so I was also mad about that. It should have aired when all of this was happening. 


What really stuck out in this Documentary was the Principal of Fenger High School, MS. Elizabeth Dozier. Wow! She just blew me away. She was exceptional as she addressed and handled the problems in her school so effectively. She even was planning a "peace walk" with the students and police thru the streets to show they would not be intimidated. 


Unfortunately, someone got shot and klilled and now her district was in the middle of two gangs warfare. The peace march had to be postponed.


There was another little boy, 9 years old who was giving speeches to crowds to keep his school open. His name was Asean Johnson. I believe someday he will have a very productive political life. Out of the 50 schools they finally did close, only three were left open. One of them was Asean Johnson's. I will have to do some research online to find out was in happening now in those districts, and how many children have died because of these school closings.


Besides the parent's, and teachers they had the Teachers & school Unions on their side. But, it didn't seem to do very much.


They did have the First Lady there raising money "For At Risk Kids". She also gave a speech at the funeral of the little girl who had attended and performed at  the President's Inauguration, and then three weeks later was shot to death. Her name was  Hadiya Pendelton. 15 years old, another sad story. 


They said there were over 70 Gangs, and 70,000 Gang members in that area of Roseland. I have a link that you may be interested in, it tells you more it's from the Teachers Union in Chicago. Oh, I'm not sure what you have, but if you have cable T.V. thru Comcast, On Demand has this CNN show that you can see anytime you want for free. Or you can go directly to CNN online and watch it there. Here is the other link:

@Watchful @CarolParks  Well, I have watched the CNN Chicago Land, twice now, and it is very disturbing. I am not a fan of CNN, but I do like that they are showing this. I only wish it was on 60 Minutes so more people could see this. 60 Minutes has been horrible the last few years, but this is something everyone should see. 


The parent's were very united in wanting to stop Rahm Emanuel from closing 53 schools last year in May . His stance was that 56% dropout rate was not acceptable, so he would be closing the schools and putting those resources into making other schools better which these kids would now have to travel to. 


To me it made no sense. Before shutting down any of these schools, they already had a problem of little children being terrified going to schools that were not far from home, but thru Gang neighborhoods. One little girl who was crying said she was terrified everyday to go to school, and that her little sister who was only in first grade was in danger of being jumped like her.

My biggest question was why would any Gang member or anyone be jumping on 6 to ten year old children? I understand all about "territory", drugs and such but these are little kids who are no threat to them. This is just beyond belief. 


The second thing is why isn't the Mayor and others providing a safe way to travel to school for these kids? School buses were no where to be found. That would have been my first thought; get school buses maybe with bullet proof glass.


Many of these children come from a bad family life as I am sure you know and school is their only "family".  No wonder so many join Gangs, and drop out. I think the Mayor is going about this the wrong way. I in no way have all the answers or solutions, but these children should not have to live like this being terrified to go to school, and no one is looking out for them.

Another little girl, maybe 9 years old stood on a stage and told the audience in tears how she had to hide in a school building for a very long time because someone was trying to jump her. I was so angry and crying at the same time just listening to this. But, that won't help a thing.


 I was thinking of Oprah Winfrey who lives in Chicago and hoping she sees this so maybe she can get involved and with all of her big contacts raise money to do something for these children. Something needs to be done, this is not acceptable at all. 


I'm sorry I get very emotional over these issues.

I feel fairly safe in assuming my would have mutual sentiments towards u. LOL


As to those students having to travel thru such unsafe areas both to and from school, I very much agree that that is an issue that should be a great concern to all of us. I just wonder what, if anything, the parents of those students may be doing to see to it that their children are protected. They should be demanding that those neighborhoods where the most danger exists have a much greater police presence, especially during the hours when school opens and closes. We should not tolerate our children being placed in danger zones under any circumstances. If necessary, we should form organized neighborhood patrol groups in coordination with the police to monitor and secure safe passage for our children, especially on their way home from school.


Regarding CNN's fall in the ratings, I'm sure there's a good reason for that. Perhaps more r turning away from mainstream news outlets and r turning to alternative outlets to get more accurate and honest news coverage that genuinely addresses their concerns. If that is indeed the case, then I say that's a good thing.


U're more than welcome for the links. The staff who work at BAR r all top flight news journalists/analysts who do in-depth coverage of issues pertinent to black ppl. I visit to their site regularly. If u do read those articles, I'm sure u'll find them to be both informative and insightful.


BTW, I'm not a member of the millionaire's club either, not even close. :)  But, I do try to support different black-owned media outlets whenever I'm able and their's is one that I definitely feel is deserving of any financial support I can muster.

 Am I so misguided? Do you know that all 26 states that have the Stand Your Ground Law, are run by REPUBLICANS? Do you know that Fake Fox Lies, and all the GOP stood up for George Zimmerman, and called him the VICTIM instead of the Real victim TRAYVON MARTIN?  Do you also know they think that Jordan Davis should have been killed, because DUNN had that right? 


The GOP approve the murder of BLACK CHILDREN, and are the ones who have and protect those "laws" in every RED STATE. The Democrat's are not exactly great either, they are the less of two evils. BUT, at least they don't call Zimmerman a HERO!.


I could post a ton of UTUBE Videos showing the truth about the GOP, and their RACIST, BACKWARDS PARTY. But, I don't have the time nor inclination. I don't care if I am White, Pink, or BLUE! You can't change the TRUTH and the TRUTH is the GOP are Racist, pieces of garbage who are not for anyone except the people who can line their pockets with money. And yes, unfortunately there are Dem's like that also. But, saying how great the GOP Party was over 50 years ago has nothing to do with how they are NOW. Tell Trayvon Martin 's parents how great they are. Oh, and they have just AGAIN voted AGAINST The VETERANS in America by defeating the Bill for Veterans Benefits. It was the Senate this time, all the GOP voted against it.


I will say, despite our political differences, I am truly sorry for what happend to you, and your mother. I am not sure how they got away with stealing your retirement, but I certainly sympathise with you on that. There is no real Justice in America for most people.

He supports Ted Cruz, that should tell you all you need to know.


 He also does not like any Black Congressman, or Senator, or any Black representative of California. Or maybe not all, but most it seems. If I didn't know better, I would think he was Sean Hannity. 


Is it just me, or do most of the articles seem Anti-Obama on here? I do not agree with everything the President has done, but I still think he has done a good job considering that he has to deal with the GOP Congress. In fact in many situations he has really done an amazing job considering he has NO SUPPORT from some of the weak Dems either. 


It also seems that many Black entertainers like Oprah Winfrey are also attacked non-stop on here. How sad is this? People that have struggled all of their lives, make it, and become a real power house in America, only to be degraded by those whom are the very ones she & others try to help, & inspire.

@hiroader2... Your "A" typical what Republican strategist consider the naive, gullible, brain-washable, ignorant wanna be activist, Black voter. The mere fact that you would state, even repeat, or equate "The Obama administration" as having... "spent 6 years of gridlock, stonewalling, from getting policy & business done"... is more than evident a display of your political ignorance as it pertains to our political structure, and most critical the Republican House Majority (and Republican throughout the Republican Party in general) having a pac to just vote "No" and stand ("gridlock-stonewalling) firm against every piece of legislation put forth by the Obama Administration.

Your gibberish retorts are meaningless, asinine, and frankly a waste of your time and mine, its not strengthening either one of us intellectually.

First to thyself you need be true... stop all the on the fly you wanna be a part of the mix (here) BS... be constructive you know right from wrong and further two wrongs never made a right. The Civil Rights Movement (which I lived) was far from being a Political Game or Political Debate... Black People Died!... Died For Others Rights To Live Free & Just... of which you and I are beneficiaries.

... The Change didn't happen overnight nor in a span of "6 years" (read our Black History) Fortunately Subsequent All We Fought For (acting accordingly playing by the established establishment rules) Is Manifested In Barack Obama... The First (though mixed) Black President Of (the said to be) United States Of America... who some seem to think He "Ain't Black Enough"... "Ain't Waving Dat' Black Wand Fast Or Wide Enough"... "Ain't Giving His Black People What Dae' Want"... like black barreled crabs ripping one another apart, in their struggle to escape... totally oblivious the awaiting boiling pot.

Three simple questions and still diversion, agitation & instigation... Here we go again,... The Obama administration spent a 6 years of gridlock, stonewalling, from getting policy & business done... Atleast so the "great taste vs less filling " political theatre would publicly indicate... So as a former community organizer with a 90-95% percent constituency support., Do you address parenting measures as the political obstruction or do you take that support base.., TAP those "checks & balances " that'll allow more of his support voter access and work on eliminating obstructers by putting supporters in their seats instead of "Reaching Accross the Aisles" and showing his constituents a nub.... But!.., When your pants-saggin college constituents are gerrymandered from voting,.. when false charges, false arrest, stop-n-frisk civil rights violations disqualify, discourage supporters.., when political opposition subvertly infiltrate the constitutional rights, voter rights & civil rights., then YES!., The conservatives have made the effort to secure their *Checks & Balances* by politically destructing the voter support.. Judicially harassing minority bystanders with stop-n-frisk.. THEN your a blind Obama supporter not realizing democrat party representative(s) concern for parenting responsibility is an distraction from nationally opening political avenues for qualified young supporters.... It's people like Hix, who'll support a politician instead of supporting an policy, an agenda, a political movement for "checks & balances " where representatives have failed... Hick your confusing legislation & policies with. Budget handouts... a typical tea party mistake...

@hiroader2... and speaking of ones level of comprehension how did you comprise your thoughts into your questions from... "Yes, Obama, Black Parents Do Have a Responsibility, But What’s the Responsibility of Black Presidents?" by repeating what you read?

Would you not say that your belligerence arises from you lack of comprehension, or understanding of the check and balancing of our Political system... with proof being your diversion from and worst circumvention of Topic... like taking "handouts" out of context, twisting and stretching suggestively.

When you don't know what to say or how to say it, its best to say nothing... less chance of removing doubt relative confirmation your lacking astuteness.

And if your of the mind (here and now) that I'm insulting your intellect, before you reply you need seriously ask yourself why.

Surely comprehension is lacking on your part.. The questions were simple... Whether you consider civil rights & voters rights. "Sacred Cows" for African American political representatives?...

Secondly, Do you feel African American representatives should take conservative gerrymandering, redistricting, vote tampering /disenfranchisement with eminent concern..?

Third question, Are you suggesting civil & voters right acts "handouts"...

And yes all else is irrelevant... Is that "Paramount fundamental comprehension" for you?..

@hiroader2... if your going to be taking the high road too... then you need read back... way back to realize its not a personal attack but an observation read... further if "the age of 62" is humorous to you - keep living and perhaps someday you really will be on the high-road, being longevity has its place in history... particularly Black history. My being a contradicting guy to you, is merely your lack of comprehension of what you read.

If you don't mind my asking... might I ask how old you are, what you do for a living, your level of education, are you married, are you a parent?... Do you find my questioning irrelevant... because all you have to be is Black ("AA") with your hands out looking for a hand out, as an entitlement because we have a Black President. Do you really think President Obama, is holding out, intentionally not wanting to wave that "Black Magic Wand"?

Were you as concerned about Black People during Bush's Presidency... did you blog your resentments then... or are you relatively (like this blog) new to the Black Conscious World?

You need know that while reading is fundamental comprehension is paramount. Am I being or getting too personal with you here?

answer the parenting question... Also regard the 90% percent voter Support for two campaigns... So that leaves the current administration & democrat party... Regardless of race these constituents needed better representation...
