Remember when we were going to have that national conversation about race?
Yea, well,that convo has been canceled. Instead, Obama’s going to do everything he can to make sure that Toby stays on the plantation.
African-Americans for Obama are urged to volunteer their time, making callings, organizing event, and encouraging their church friends to do the same. ANd this:
As part of his efforts to lock down the black community as a voting bloc, Obama has arrived in Florida accompanied by an invasion of rappers and NBA basketball stars – all at taxpayer expense.
“The group — which organizers said includes Magic Johnson, Alonzo Mourning and NBA Commissioner David Stern — will meet with President Obama for a $30,000-a-plate fundraiser at the (actual) home court of Dallas Mavericks guard Vince Carter in his Isleworth mansion,” reports the Orlando Sentinel.
The expensive fundraising trip is timed to coincide with Sunday’s 61st NBA All-Star Game at Orlando’s Amway Center.
Another reason to ignore the NBA.
I wanted to know what Obama has done for the African-American community, so I downloaded their handy-dandy factsheet available here. Most of it lists all the money he’s directed toward minorities, and there is way too much bullshit for me to tackle this morning, but buried waaaaaay at the bottom is this:
• The Obama administration announced the settlement of the longstanding Pigford II litigation and signed a bill providing funding for African Americans who were discriminated against by the USDA.
ba haaa haa haaaa haaa …
