I say he failed in that there are more blacks struggling today to make a decent living. And even more are welfare dependant than when he took the Oval Office eight years ago! When he was elected 8 years ago, I actually expected Obama to move heaven and earth to promote the cause, and better the life style of the black Americans! Yet, as I look back, and look forward, I see people of color, especially blacks, have not been given a hand up, just more hand me downs, especially when it comes to improved living standards and safety in the streets they walk and live on! Black Americans still have the largest percentage of unemployment and underemployed individuals in this country. PLUS, there is a growing number of black on black murders in the inner city ghettos. Drugs and alcohol are also a problem, and one parent families continue to be a nail in the coffin of black families! The social, economical albatross they have been forced to shoulder, for way to long, is still theirs to carry. And that says to me that Obama failed not only Americans, but black Americans in general! I really had hope that a black president would equal programs coming from Washington that would better equip young black men and women in getting out from under the drug, alcohol, criminal and failed economic culture they have been forced to endure for decades, if not centuries! Do you think that this president has failed to create positive change, especially for black Americans?
