Why not??
this is the summary
 

Now we are all left hoping and wishing that, for the sake of his legacy, President Obama doesn’t forget about us during his second term. The smart thing to do would’ve been to secure something, such as legislation to reduce black unemployment or mass incarceration, before the election, but we weren’t smart. We were tribal.

To put it plainly, the black community got screwed by trusting two men who were never honest brokers in the political game they were playing. These men selfishly took advantage of their proximity to power, and successfully used it as leverage for their personal brands, at the expense of the black community at large.

Listen black people: Nobody cares about us. Not even the people who were hired to care about us care about us. My advice? F*ck ‘em. And I don’t just mean f*ck ‘em right now, I mean f*ck ‘em forever.

Al Sharpton’s nothing more than an old guy with a bad perm. And Dyson’s just a smart guy who talks too fast. Who cares. Ask yourself, for once, what do you want? What would you like to see President Obama do for black people? Put yourself and your family first. Then fight for that, no matter what. And if you find somebody with a platform who shares your view, all the better.

But being loyal to people who aren’t loyal to you will get you nowhere. You don’t need Sharpton or Dyson to tell you what to do or think. You only need courage to stand up for yourself and the people you love

The author is trying to convince us that Barack, Al, & Michael amongst others, dont give a fucc about us.  That is so far from the truth.  The proof is in the pudding these men & many other blks have done NUMEROUS things for the black community & continue to make strides for us everyday.  How anyone can say nobody cares about blacks is beyond me.  From a show like Save our Son to Steve Harvey Mentoring weekend, to the Trayvon rallies... People  care, they've been caring & never stopped

I don't believe the premise that Sharpton and Dyson "coddled" the black community and voters in order for Obama to receive votes he supposedly didn't need, which he did.

Now Sharpton is a lot things...and a lot of nothing at the same damn time, but this article isn't believable.  It's all conjecture and opinion.

this article is saying nobody cares about blacks...but im supposed to believe the author cares enough to try to "learn me" something?LOL

Dyson is the homie.

Personally, I think folks like Cornel West and Tavis Smiley are upset because, despite Dyson and Sharpton's accusations of the president not working towards the black agenda early in the term, they understand that it isn't his only agenda. West and Smiley are trying to get one agenda across and will refer to Obama as a "republican in black face" because their interests w/ blacks and poverty are not at the top of the list.
