According to a Bureau of Labor Statistics report and Census Bureau figures, blacks have lost ground in income, employment, and education under Obama. Black Leftist pundit Travis Smiley had to admit, “The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category.”
Obama's daughters attend DC's prestigious Sidwell Friends school where achievement standards are very high. So why has Obama been relentless in his attempts to kill a DC voucher program which gives poor parents a choice of better schools for their kids? The mainstream media does not want you to know that black and Hispanic parents protested in front of the capitol against Obama trying to shut down their school voucher program. Isn't it reasonable to question why this self-proclaimed savior of the poor and minorities would do such a thing?(Hint: public school unions are big democrat/obama supporters.)
"Gains under the Obama administration by all students range between minimal and nonexistent, and the black-white gap on test scores threatens to widen after having narrowed steadily over the previous nine years," Paul E. Peterson, professor of government at Harvard University, wrote in The Wall Street Journal.Yet we're the racists?
Between 1999 and 2008, white 9-year-olds gained 11 points in math, while black student performance rose by 13 points. In reading, black performance gained 18 points. However, from 2008 to 2012 those gains slowed, with scores rising just two points in each subject for 9-year-old African-Americans.
... if Obama were white, it is likely he would receive more vocal criticism from the black community. Yet despite Obama's failure to deliver on his promise of jobs and better economic conditions, many African-Americans continue to show support, according to opinion polls.
