NAACP President Benjamin Jealous admitted on Tuesday that black people are worse off under Obama.

"The country's back to pretty much where it was when this president started," said Jealous on MSNBC. "White people in this country are doing a bit better. Black people are doing far worse."

Jealous may have had in mind the sharply higher black unemployment rate. It was 12.7% when Obama became president, and reached 14% in Dec 2012 at the same time that the national jobless rate fell to 8%.

However, that statistic doesn't necessarily mean Obama has done badly by black jobseekers. The black unemployment rate is always higher than the white unemployment rate since 1980, as the graph above shows. During recessions, the gap widens as it did under Reagan, and again under Obama since 2009. However, the graph doesn't show 2012, when an even wider gulf opened up.

This is what happens when a citizen allows their feelings of loyalty to dictate their vote.

We all know very well that African Americans voted for Obama due to his skin tone alone. And now they're suffering becuase of it. And thats not a racist statement, it's the TRUTH! Blacks would have voted for Obama REGARDLESS of his policies simply because it made them feel like they finally had one of "Their own" in power.... Hmmm

Wish they would have put one of their own in power that had a little more sense than this current idiot.... Say maybe Herman Cain?

If a black person is worse off its because he or she want to be, Obama dont run this country by himself. He really got a big mess to clean up behind that dumb sucker Bush. So i guess you are saying that blacks control the vote now. Ohh well, suck it up cause there is not a damn thing you can do about it son. Go OBAMA, New World Order.You knew this day was coming when the black man would rise the his proper place in this country. Suck it up. I mean seriously did you think whites would run this country forever, i mean seriously

How the hey did you come to such conclusions about how I feel about this? This is NOT about how I feel. It's about the black people in this nation.

Good grief you moron. The post was a story done by a national news outlet. I was just re-posting it. So how in the world did you get around to accusing me of not wanting to see a black person succeed? I was and am, a BIG Herman Cain supporter.. Uh aint he black? I think he's even blacker than Obama aint he?

And PLEASE would you Obama supporters PLEASE stop blaming Bush?

I aint too fond of Bush myself. But C'MON MAN!!!! It's going on five years and you Obamanites cant blame Bush forever. SHEEESH!

I know you guys will never, never, allow Obama to be blamed for anything. But at least find someone else to blame will ya? Good grief!

And people please pay attention to what you are reading. I am getting sick and tired of having to dumb things down for you.

One last thing. According to the story that I "CUT AND PASTED"

(Understand? It is NOT may story and it is NOT my opinions)

The BLACK AMERICANS are blaming Obama for their suffering. And they claim that things are right back where they started when he took office the first time. So hey dont blame me for the tarnish on yer heroes armor. Blame the black people who are making these accusations against your idol.

Herman Cain is a womanizing piece of shit Raw. He got busted. Cain has the morals of a jackal at best. And this was your choice? LMAO

Ask Obama if he gives a shit now about who voted for him, and who didn't.

Obama is lame duck now, and could not care less how the vote went down. He does not have to depend on votes anymore.

Obama owns you now.

You better start prepping, because I know how you fear Obama.

We know that. It's old news.

How about the Hispanic vote, the woman vote, the youth vote? Did it help Obama, or Romney?

If the blacks are mad at Obama, then they will have to brace up and over come it like we all do. The blacks are not entitled to special treatment because Obama is president.

Everyone wants to blame someone other than the real person that derserves the blame, and that would be themselves.

Well I think we need an openly gay president, because gay people are just better than straight people. There is only 1 way and that is gay!

And you're so naive that you think that the other politicians aint laying it to their sexy little secretaries? Oh come on man! You really think that Obama has been faithful to ole Donkey teeth? Get real!

Herman Cain simply got caught doing what they all do. And as for his morals. I could not care less about his morals. If I voted according to the politicians morals I would vote for ..... NO ONE! Because they're all a bunch of womanizing self absorbed lairs.

I vote for the one I think will help me put cash into my pockets. TO heck with his morals. I dont care if he stomped puppies to death. As long as he could get the economy moving.

A politician with morals... HA HA HA! LMAO!

Heck you have a better chance of spotting Sasquatch.

To be totally honest with you I dont trust any of them.

I guess you just have to choose the one you think will not screw things up any worse. It's sorta like having to choose the lesser of the two evils if you ask me.

However I DO believe that Obama is the absolute worse president in the history of the United States.

Womanizing is a political perk! LOL

Better hope you stay on his good side. Apparently his administration feels they can target Americans wherever and whenever they choose. No judge, no jury trial, no Bill of Rights involved.

What if preppers in Colorado are the next threat to law and order?

I wrote this long thing to you a few seconds ago, and it would not post.

I guess the bottom line is, That really disturbs me about the drone issue that I heard on the news this morning. There is no privacy anymore, anywhere.

The Supreme Court has no power over this matter.

Unreal.

Lastly, I was monkeying with Raw about the Obama is our savior or whatever I said in humor.

Let's see if this posts.
