Roland Martin talks with George Curry and Dr. Chris Metzler about the White House not getting the best people out in front of the American people to relay the Obama Administration’s message.
Here’s the reason behind the barrage of hyper-critical,
personal “takes” on President Obama’s Presidency from a “politically
impotent” Left, led by the black community’s “Overseer” class, who have
spent 3 years holding our “bi-racial” President
“Though the colored man is no longer subject to barter and
sale, he is surrounded by an adverse settlement which fetters all his
movements. In his downward course he meets with no resistance, but his course
upward is resented and resisted at every step of his progress. If he comes in
ignorance, rags and wretchedness he conforms to the popular belief of his character,
and in that character he is welcome; but if he shall come as a gentleman, a
scholar and a statesman, he is hailed as a contradiction to the national faith
concerning his race, and his coming is resented as impudence. In one case he
may provoke contempt and derision, but in the other he is an affront to pride
and provokes malice.”

Roland, The reason he can’t get his message out is because those who voted for him refuse to follow his leadership. Please leave jealous “porch monkeys” out of panel discussions…Blacks have spent three years talking about, either what his presidency means, or what his agenda should be, or what he hasn’t done. Black folk are the last folks qualified to tell THIS President how to do his job. It’s an intentional mis-education of the Negro. Keep yelling about the absence of a black agenda, and black people forget what’s actual being/been done. Bitch about the Public Option so much that black people will miss out on the actual benefits in President Obama’s healthcare bill. This allows you to come back in the next election season and criticize the bi-racial president for “continued” disparities among blacks. The “Overseer” class in the black community will not allow us become part of any “rainbow” coalition. They want to maintain their position of influence (See: Maxine Water). We are a self-deceived into believing: “Talking is doing” While OWS protests on Wall Street against President Obama, the GOP is about to slip in TWO wholly owned subsidiaries of Wall Street candidates: Mitt Romney and Chris Christie, right under your noses!
