The numbers are stark: of President Obama’s nine new Cabinet appointments, three are women and one is Hispanic.

This has prompted African-Americans, who voted for Obama in record numbers, to question whether they are getting their fair share of representation.

Ohio Democrat Marcia Fudge, who chairs the Congressional Black Caucus, sent Obama a letter last week saying that his appointments “have hardly been reflective of this country’s diversity.” She noted numerous phone calls from constituents to the offices of the CBC’s 42 members “questioning why none of the new appointees will be able to speak to the unique needs of African Americans.”

It’s totally understandable that the CBC wants to see more African-Americans with a seat at the table, and it’s the group’s job to keep the heat on the president. But not all CBC members share the criticism voiced by their chair.

Rep. Chaka Fattah (D-PA) points out the obvious—that the president himself is black and that Eric Holder as attorney general is still in the Cabinet and responsive to the black community.“Much more important than the personalities are the policy priorities,” Fattah told The Daily Beast, adding that he is confident that when the Cabinet selection process is complete, it will reflect the country.

A few months ago, it was women complaining that the president wasn’t keeping his promise of diversity, and women weren’t being named to top positions commensurate with their clout at the ballot box. That has since worked out to everybody’s satisfaction, and after Fudge’s letter was made public, White House officials, led by Valerie Jarrett, assured her that nominees who would please her are being vetted. When press secretary Jay Carney was asked at his Monday briefing about the lack of black appointees, he replied cryptically, saying the process is not yet complete and that “posts that will be empty have not all been filled.”

He's not black, he's half black. He seems to prefer Mexicans over hoods? May have something to do with the world wide Marxist struggle. American blacks have been domesticated and plantationized for some time by the Dems, thus take for granted and not really respected by true revolutionaries.

He's 12.5% black, 37.5% Arab, 50% white and 100% homosexual. Note that gays are the biggest beneficiaries of his social issue flip flops and that they feature prominently in his circle (Janet Napolitano, Rahm Emmanuel, Reggie Love...)

Obama is a Diversity nut, who was elevated into place by Wall Street people, the leaders of Diversity.

The leaders of Diversity are not black people, so it should come as no surprise who or what receives the plum political patronage jobs from Obama.

Blacks have fared very poor under Obama. The best President to blacks was Bill Clinton. Under Clinton, their standard of living rose to an all time high.

Under Obama, more blacks live in poverty, have broken homes and receive government assistance than ever before.

And many blacks voted for Obama simply because he is black. That is racism at its worse. This blind faith is not deserved as he hangs with the rich and powerful. So those that thought he'd take care of them are getting what they deserve. A life of dependence on from someone that really doesn't care about them but will tell them what they want to hear.

They are getting exactly what they deserve.

That was a great post, full of truth, concise and powerful.

Ghetto minded Blacks have turned from God/Bible to worship Obama/ Government with disastrous results, killing and murder at an all time high even a little baby recently in Brunswick and the complete breakdown of the nuclear family, self control and decency.

And you are 100% moron.

Might want to check with Bubba on the math, though.

Obama is like Jeremiah Wright, his mentor, who talks a anti-Whitey, song and dance message but lives in an all White gated community. If Obama somehow manipulates a 3rd term Blacks will back picking cotton in the fields of Mississippi but nonetheless singing his praises, living vicariously through Obama.

As Jamie Foxx said, "Our Lord and Savior, Barak Obama!"

That's Obama. He has about as much interest in ghetto style Blacks as Tiger Woods or O. J. Simpson.

Your concern for the plight of black people under President Obama is touching.

Reader doesn't have a large dog or own a firearm, yet she manages to live among the criminal element without incident. At least, she is a "true believer" unlike Jeremiah Wright who preaches "hate Whitey" but lives in an (nearly) all white upper middle class gated community.

Obama also lives far, far from the ghetto-type Blacks that are so enamored of him.

No, never wish that on anyone. Reader and I don't get along, but I'd never wish any ill will towards her.

Oliver, I enjoy your posts. I don't know if she's a 'true believer' as you put it, or just endeavors to appear totally progressive. But we'll wait until she's around to discuss her.

You are spot on about the Obama's. Even when he was a community organizer, they were 'too good' to live in the neighborhood where he worked.

And whether he is paying for it personally, or the taxpayers are, the life style they are living is a VERY poor display to the country when millions struggling economically and we are at war. He needs a better public relations advisor.

No, not that he doesn't favor them...that he has done very little to nothing to improve the plight of not only blacks, but any citizens struggling for jobs, lower energy prices, tighten immigation to protect jobs for Americans, stop inflation...the list goes on.

He's an out of touch president.

He's a puppet and if you look real close you can see the strings.
