Barack Obama, our next President

Nothing to say about this playing a huge role with the problems in the black community?

White-on-white murder in America is out of control

"Blacks represent 13% of the population but commit 50% of the murders; 90% of black victims are murdered by other blacks," writes Time's Joe Klein, calling for "provocative" thinking on race in America. "The facts suggest that history is not enough to explain this social disaster."

Yet the disturbing truth, according to the FBI's most recent homicide statistics, is that the United States is in the wake of an epidemic of white-on-white crime. Back in 2011, the most recent year for which data is available, a staggering 83 percent of white murder victims were killed by fellow Caucasians.

This is not to say that white people are inherently prone to violence. Most whites, obviously, manage to get through life without murdering anyone. And there are many countries full of white people — Norway, Iceland, France, Denmark, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom — where white people murder each other at a much lower rate than you see here in the United States. On the other hand, although people often see criminal behavior as a symptom of poverty, the quantity of murder committed by white people specifically in the United States casts some doubt on this. Per capita GDP is considerably higher here than in France — and the white population in America is considerably richer than the national average — and yet we have more white murderers.

To understand the level of cultural pathology at work here, it's important to understand that 36 percent of those killed by whites are women — a far higher share than you see with black murderers.

Clearly, the social disaster of white violence has complicated roots. But the beginning of an answer is to admit that we have a problem. It's striking that President Obama, who's frequently found time to comment on the height of black men's waistlines, seems oblivious to this torrent of white killing. To be fair to the White House, however, it would be uniquely difficult for Obama to address this delicate issue. The real tragedy is that none of Obama's 43 white predecessors have addressed it either. Indeed, looking back on America's political iconography, there are disturbing trends toward the glorification of white violence. Peer inside the US Capitol building, and you'll find a monument to Confederate President Jefferson Davis — the leader of an insurgency that caused an unprecedented quantity of violent white deaths.

But whatever the causes or past mistakes, the important thing is to confront this important subject in the future. As we look ahead to a 2016 matchup that should give us two Euro-American major party nominees for the first time in a decade, perhaps America can finally get the debate about white violence it deserves.

SECONDLY, RED STATES ARE TYPICALLY RURAL AND RELATIVELY UNPOPULATED. IN FACT QUITE A FEW OF THEM ARE JUST STOREFRONTS FOR MILITARY AND COMMERCIAL INTERESTS. THE PATHETIC SIXTEEN WORD COMMERCE CLAUSE IN THE CONSTITUTION, WHITTLED TO ITS CURRENT FORM BY SOUTHERN SLAVE HOLDING INTERESTS BACK IN THE DAY, IS LITTLE MORE THAN A LICENSE FOR THOSE SAME INTERESTS IN THEIR CURRENT INCARNATIONS TO LIE, CHEAT, AND STEAL AND TO START IDIOTIC WARS FOR OIL AND MORE MONEY. IT IS LITTLE WONDER THAT ONE OF THE LARGEST DEFENSE CONTRACTORS IN THE UNITED STATES ARE THE ESKIMOS OF ALASKA WHO RECEIVE SPECIAL DISPENSATION ON MATTERS OF TAXATION BECAUSE THEY ARE "INDIGENOUS PEOPLES." IT IS A DISGRACE TO EVEN HAVE TO ADMIT WE BELONG TO A NATION OF THIEVES AND LIARS AND COWARDS WHOSE ONLY INTERESTS ARE THEIR OWN... WHOSE ONLY CONCERN IS WHERE TO GET MORE DELICIOUS FAT TO SHOVE IN THEIR SLACK MOUTHS AS THE CRUMBS AND GRAVY SLITHER AND SNAKE DOWN THEIR DOUBLE CHINS....

Just hope we survive the self-appointed landlord of America and his slumlord, Ms. Jarrett.

Obama thinks he owns America. Ms. Jarrett just helps him run it down. Her reputation in Chicago precedes her as the power behind the throne.

I guess if he went biking or cut brush, that would be OK.
Obama has spent more time vacationing in Hawaii since 2008 than he he spent there during the previous 28 years combined and that is after his mother and grandmother had already passed. That is because he now has someone else to pay for it (tens of millions of tax payers). How many days has Obama spent vacationing at his 1.9 million dollar home in Chicago?

Read it and weep clown..
no, i don't want to be taken care of, I don't need it - I find any insinuation of such offensive considering how much I pay to support shitty little Conservative states that don't pay their own way.
I've never been in debt and I've never taken advantage of a Gov program other than those which are inescapable like driving on fed or state built highways, using utilities etc. So, no, don't want to be taken care of, but willing to pay my fair share to build a strong and stable society where everyone gets a fair shake.
This may blow the mind of a lot of Conservatives, but most Liberals, the REALLY Liberal ones are college grads or at least had some college. They have good jobs, they live in nice homes, drive nice cars, vacation a lot, pay higher taxes than most Conservatives because they are making more money and live in Liberal states/cities where taxes are higher. When we defend social programs, it's not because we need them. We don't. We just have a heart, and don't think human beings should suffer needlessly because of the inequities that the elite of this country have built into the system. Is self-reliance awesome?-yes, and a lot of Liberals are the spitting image of it, a lot of Conservatives aren't at all and don't even realize it because they waste so much of their time looking for scapegoats for their problems instead of demanding more of themselves.
so if you are a Conservative and you want to cut wasteful spending. Let's start with cutting Federal funding to build infrastructure in Conservative states. If you want any roads, highways, schools, power plants, dams, levees etc You can pay for it yourself without any help from us dirty Liberals and our evil Federal Gov. Let's get rid of Farm subsidies all together too. No more Social Security or Medicaid in Conservative states, you can perfect your own level of self-sufficiency paying for it yourselves. No more Fed subsidies for Policemen or Firemen either -pay for it yourself. A few years down the road when your state looks like Sudan and you realize you can't pay for it yourselves because your local economies are too small to generate the revenue to pay for it, you might begin to realize exactly how much you rely upon Liberals and our big, bustling Liberal state economies to pay your way vis a vis the Federal Gov.
as a CA resident, for every dollar in Fed taxes I pay, I receive about 50 cents in Fed spending in my state. For every dollar a Conservative living in Alabama or Mississippi pay, they receive about $1.50 in spending. Do the math: WE fucking take care of YOU. YOU are the welfare queens, STFU and have some respect for the people taking care of you, fking freeloader

Detachment. golfing 5 hours a week? Do ya think that he is out of communication?
Exactly what forms of relaxation would meet the right whiner approval?
I mean besides biking & brush cutting.
Maybe Obama should resign so that he can have more free time to play golf ,watch CNN and jump to conclusions. He could also do like others and wait until he retires to spend more time on the links. He is not very athletic so I don't know why he even bothers,maybe he should spend more time with his athletic trainer.

If Obama would golf once a week that means he would have played 286 times. Obama has not played nearly that often.
Please advise your list of acceptable activities that a President should be allowed to do.
Military commanders usually don't take vacations until they complete their command. If a commander of an installation takes even a few days off he needs to release his commander to his assistant commander,it is a major undertaking and official orders are printed up and dispersed to all his subordinates.
