Obama cant do everything but Obama ain't doing a damn thing.

Let the white gays be under attack and see how quickly he runs to their aid.

Sad to see him so weak.

sending some people to check in on things and make sure the process of
discovering the truth of what happened occurs while maintaining public
safety without infringing on the right to protest.

Then a lot of kumbaya about how we are all unified, one American people.

I felt like he was kind of choking the words out, like he wasn't saying what he wanted to say but what he had to say.

I can't expect Obama to roll up to a press conference all pro-black, fight the power. That's
our job. His job is to execute his influence to delegate efficiently.
For all we know heads could be rolling behind the scenes about how this
is being mishandled.

im not sure why

he's not standing again


Because
he essentially is "the power." He can't sneeze without someone trying
to impeach him as it is now. We voted him in to represent us in those
meetings where decisions are made, where we don't have reach. And we all
know white people stop listening when they think we're not speaking
their language. That's why we have been trained to code switch our whole
lives. So people can take us seriously so that we can get to the places
where we can genuinely influence change and power.

Please
understand I am not excusing him from doing his duty. I'm saying how he
goes about it may not look like I'd like it to right now but I have no
choice but to stop looking at him and look at what WE can do. I am not
in his position. Wouldn't want to be. We may or may never hear about
what happens in those meetings, whether they are for us or against us.
But what we CAN do is see how we can affect change where we are. Obama
can't do everything.



sorry homie

Afro are you saying that we should pass the responsibility of all of America's social change onto him?

Without stepping up in our own communities?

You remember how the nba commissioner spoke during his press conference with the donald sterling situation? he was poised and professional, but he was also stern. he sounded pissed and obviously wasn't up for the bullsh*t.

that's how i expect my president to be for ALL issues of the oppressed.

no, you miss our point entirely

we are saying as the commander in chief, the buck stops with him

he is in a position to be forceful and inject the right resources into the ferguson situation, ferguson airspace is in america, call that off, the blockade in ferguson, call that off. people need food and water, send that in, halt the with effect the use of tear gas and indiscriminate use of violence against AMERICAN citizens.

YES GODDAMNIT, WE ARE PUTTING THIS ON HIM.

this isnt a time to be respectable or pay attention to the respectability politics of it. this is the time to do what presidents and commanders in chief do. he better start commader in chiefing

if you dont get that then c'mon son.. you really dont get that??
