The Real Failure of Obama by Charles Taylor
As reported at Brietbart.com, Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan has slammed President Obama’s legacy, saying that he failed inner city blacks.
Here is what he said:
“But I just want to tell you, Mr. President, you’re from Chicago, and so am I. I go out in the streets with the people. I visited the worst neighbourhoods. I talked to the gangs. And while I was out there talking to them, they said ‘You know, Farrakhan, the president ain’t never come. Could you get him to come and look after us?’ There’s your legacy, Mr. President. It’s in the streets with your suffering people, Mr. President. And If you can’t go and see about them, then don’t worry about your legacy ’cause the white people that you served so well, they’ll preserve your legacy. The hell they will. But you didn’t earn your legacy with us. We put you there. You fought for the rights of gay people. You fought for the rights of this people and that people. You fight for Israel. Your people are suffering and dying in the streets! That’s where your legacy is. Now you failed to do what should have been done.”
This is all true, of course, but it misses the point. Obama was only a black president on paper. He was, like them all, transnational, serving the financial elite who put him into office. Poor blacks in his home town just didn’t count, unless one can stir them up to riot against the eternally racist whites.
