Lana, you miss the point of the entire article. Mr. Smiley, who is black, voted for 0potus twice (as did many) based purely on race (to the tune off 95% of the black population). Now why is that? Was he the better qualified candidate in 2008? No. He most certainly wasn't the more qualified candidate in 2012. So how does he get elected and then reelected? It doesn't make a heck of a lot of sense until you look at the demographics of his base. Here we have Smiley admitting that the black population is and will continue to be worse off economically with 0potus in there and yet they still voted for him. Insanity is the obvious answer. It has to be because, why would you vote for your own economic destruction? "Black people will have lost ground on EVERY SINGLE ECONOMIC INDICATOR". That is foolish and regrettable. I could care less about the color of the man's skin (he is half white by the way) as long as he does what is right for the country. By his failure in both his foreign and domestic policies we have seen that he absolutely does not have America's best interests at heart. What 0potus is for is himself. That is sickening.
I see what you did there, did you?
Sighs...Again, I don't think you're reading my comments in threads you've responded too me--I DID NOT VOTE FOR OBAMA IN 2008--I'm a registered INDEPENDENT that liked John Mc Cain until he choose Palin--Your argument there is invalid.
Speaking of idiocy of my own destruction, since this POTUS has been in office, two of my kids (Biracial) have their Masters Degrees and living very comfortably in very nice areas. One (by the time she was 24)owns her own home, a very expensive car and they both PAY their fair share of taxes now that they're done w/college.
Idiocy is when you have a bunch of Republicans against legislation that they were for prior to 2009, in the name of political posturing
In your world, if spill your glass of milk on the floor, you shout "THANKS OBAMA"
This inception of this hostage taking strategy is and should fall on the GOP and partly the Teaparty.

Wait so he didn't say what was quoted? Lana even you have to see the complete idiocy of voting for your own destruction regardless of race. Blacks overwhelmingly voted for 0potus (95%) in this past election. Why? Oh and by the way, Tavis is a true dyed in the wool devout liberal who did vote for 0potus, shocked?
Back to the quote, do you honestly think he will be held responsible (no) or do you think the liberals and their friends in the media will once again try to pin it on the evil republicans? See the crab in a bucket theory.
Forgot to thank you for solidifying something I reiterated here, "Just b/c someone is 'off color', doesn't necessarily mean that they agree or even voted for our POTUS.
Signed, Registered Independent who did NOT vote for Barrack Obama in '08 (shocked?)
Typical Faux News deceptive editing and omitting out content to taking Tavis Smiley's comment out of context.
Smiley was evidently there with a goal of promoting his PBS special about the special problems facing Black boys in our education system, but Sean inSannity covered up his lack of interest in the issue by playing a brief clip from the special and saying, “Before we get to that which I think we’re going to agree on, so let’s start with the point at which we disagree ------ " I think Barack Obama’s failed as president. mmkay...
Here's what was conveniently left out: (Verbatim)
"But here's the other side. I respect the president. I will protect the president. And I will correct the president. He's right on this government shutdown. ----- Republicans are thwarting the rule of law with the Constitution. If they let this debt go into default, they're[REPUBLICANS] trampling again on the Constitution.
C'mon AJS, you're smarter then that, furthermore, some of us are privy to the games that ideologically driven Right Wing and Left Wing non-news media plays.
SMILEY: "Let me answer your question very forthrightly. No, they are not. 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. On that regard, the president ought to be held responsible."
