  How Obama Has Failed the Black Community

“Recall the euphoria that engulfed the African-American community back in 2008, when Barack Obama became the 44 th president of
the United States. Blacks came out for him in droves and voted for him at an astounding 96% level. Times, they were a-changin’, so to speak.

  It was the dawning of a new era, as a large dose of hope and change was on its way to the country as a whole, and specifically to the
African-American community. Now, almost four years later, it’s clear that Obama has done nothing to improve the way of life among blacks as a whole. In fact, statistics show that life has actually regressed for African-Americans under Obama.

  As of June, the African-American unemployment rate is a staggering 14.4%, with Latinos and
Hispanics having an unemployment rate of about 11.0%, while the unemployment rate for whites is 7.4%. Compare these rates to
December 2008, the final month before Barack Obama stepped into the Oval Office. Whites were unemployed at the rate of 6.6% and
Hispanics were at a rate of 9.2%, while blacks had an 11.9% rate of unemployment.”
