Apparently, Obama IS the President of Latino America

latinos+for+obama

When pressed on what he would do for African-Americans, president Obama responded by saying that he’s not the president of Black America. Even though Obama has never been willing to push for specific remedies (charity is not a remedy) to address the ills of the African-American community, he continues to use his presidency to address the issues of Latino Americans who, to their credit, have been much more vocal than their African-American counterparts.

“My general view has been consistent throughout, which is that I want all businesses to succeed. I want all Americans to have opportunity. I’m not the president of black America. I’m the president of the United States of America…” said Obama.

But as BreakingBrown previously reported, Obama was embarrassed during a townhall in Washington D.C. when reporters from Spanish language television stations took issue with his administration’s deportation policy. So even though Obama steers clear of reversing himself on his stance that he is not president of Black America, he does seem to be president of Latino America, and LGBT America, and every other demographic under the Democratic tent except Black America.


“Your reputation has been tarnished among Latinos over deportations,” Acevedo of Univision said, according to The Washington Post, referring to Obama having surpassed George W. Bush in the number of undocumented immigrants deported. “How can you ask the Latino community to trust you?” Also, Janet Murguia, head of the National Council of La Raza, called President Obama the Deporter-In-Chief during an event last Tuesday.

The pressure being put on Obama by Latino activists and media has caused Obama to change his tune on deportations. After a late-night meeting with Latino leaders on Thursday, President Obama caved to pressure and agreed to review his deportation policy.

President Obama had previously said that his hands were tied unless Congress agreed to pass a comprehensive immigration plan, but now Obama has apparently had a change of heart.

“It is clear that the pleas from the community got through to the president,” said Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill, according to Fox News Latino.

“The president emphasized his deep concern about the pain too many families feel from the separation that comes from our broken immigration system,” read a statement from Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney.

It is unclear what action Obama will take to reduce the number of deportations.

President Obama and the Democrats will learn a lesson that they'll never forget. I predict the Democrats will lose the Senate and President Obama will spend his lame duck session fighting not to have his entire Presidency repealed. He can only blame himself because his actions to Black folks is one of kiss my ass, who else will you vote for.He either doesn't know or have forgotten how Black voters have no problem staying home, hell we are a culture of survivors no matter what America has thrown our way. President Obama has thrown his achievements away by becoming to grand as some folks seem to do. He and the Democrats forgot who took them to the dance, so to speak. But Obama will learn he fucked with Black folks a little to much once he's battling for his Presidency.

Seems to me, Latinos got their stuff together politically!!!!! Latinos MADE Obama have an late night meeting with them, to address their issues (Immigration) Also, LGBT's got their stuff together too!!!!! Since Obama took office, he's thrown Black people under the bus by having a "Black responsibility meeting" and ignoring us.Black people need political power like Latinos, LGBT's, etc. Black people voting for politicians because they Black , and/or Democrat, and not demanding something in return for their vote ain't working for us!!!!!!

"referring to Obama having surpassed George W. Bush in the number of undocumented immigrants deported."


That was the best thing hoebama ever did for Black people in the united snaKKKes of ameriKKKa..(intentional of not..)deport those spiKKKs and I call them spiKKKs because 95%(being modest..)..of them don't even identify with being Afrikan/Black when 95% of their "latino/his-panic" culture is Afrikan centered but with a white mentality..just like hoebama a Black face with a white mentality as we should all know by now does not bodes well for Blacks around the globe with constant attacks of white supremacy if not physically but mentally..and we see the results with those sellouts..everyone who looks Black aint Black..and great job Yvette(I like that name..haha..)..of highlighting and reiterating what we said on the previous article of hoebama saying  that he is fighting for "them" but will never say or do that for us..he will fight for the "latino/his-panic" communities openly the gays and their agenda openly..the so called jews and these neanderthal craKKKers openly but when it comes to us he is the president of the united snaKKKes of ameriKKKa which I guess he's illustrating..reminding us that we are still not citizens of this country according to "them" even though we belt this from the ground up.
