Seeing the Light in These Dark Times

Monday, December 7, 2009

It took months of double-digit unemployment, a series of questionable moves, a clear statement of disconnect and disloyalty, and a year of failures and disappointmennts before groups such as the Congressional Black Caucus, the NAACP, and a larger portion of African-Americans are starting to see the light.

But, it's finally happening, just as many Black conservatives and Republicans have said since 2008.

It doesn't matter that Obama is the first Black president in regards to Black America's loyalty if the 44th president is going to treat Black America as many of the other 43 presidents have previously.

And, if a matchup with Obama's precedessor's accomplishments for Black America is any indication - with regards to issues such as the Washington, DC voucher program, government-led abortion funding, and the termination of funding for historically Black colleges and universities ("HBCUs") - the results are not kind to President Obama. Coupled with high unemployment rates and increased racism and urban violence in the nation without much said by the post-racial president, and one thing is clear:

Maybe more African-Americans are starting to see the light during these dark times for America.
