You lost me right about there when you went from possibly asking a valid question to sounding like a bigot.

While I am not an Obama supporter, I have not once seen him voice support for reparations and I agree with him about the need to improve schools in predominantly black neighborhoods.

I also appreciated his call in the same speech for African Americans to realize they they have to take responsibility for their own lives instead of blaming society for everything.

Why read the article when you can read the original source and figure out what it means for yourself? The article seemed to leave out some important key points in order to further the writer's agenda.

It is strange how blacks standard of living soared as whites declined when Obama took office even though their unemployment rate soared more than whites. It would appear that blacks are the beneficiaries of all of Obama's new social welfare spending. Could this be pandering or reparations?

Blacks Optimism About Their Standards of Living Tops Whites





Many blacks in the USA, Obama included are not descendants of slaves. Yet most blacks believe we owe them reparations. You would have to be past retirement age now to have been old enough to vote during the time of Jim crow laws. There are absolutely no white males in the workforce today that had anything to do with oppressing blacks. Yet the white males today must pay the price for it with being passed over for promotion, quota bosses, affirmative action & unwarranted threat of being sued for discrimination.
