9. and wow....

Really that whole video is ridiculous. Since I am actually black, let me speak on Cenk saying that Rev. Al said Obama already said he won't do anything for blacks, duh. No, he said he won't have a black agenda, and he shouldn't. He is the president of America, not black America. We have latinos living in poverty too. We have black people, like my family who are middle class. We aren't all living in poverty, that's why you have to do things for EVERYBODY. We need pell grants, healthcare, we need job training. We are not some weird species that needs a black agenda, we just need a fair agenda. Wanting Obama to fix problems that are deeply rooted in our community since slavery, when white presidents have had "white agendas", for centuries when they were building a white middle class and thinking it was progress. Meanwhile the black community was not improving. These problems have been rising for all of America for 40-50 years. Not sure why we think Obama should have had it fixed by yesterday. Just saying hold all presidents to the same standards. So tired of this, he should do this and that since he is black. Let's be realistic and acknowledge that there are 3 branches of government, and there is no way in hell a black agenda would pass congress. Why do things for show, to appease cornell and tavis? Lol. Okay.
