One of the ugliest things about the disaster of the Obama presidency has been that it’s been hardest on the very people that back him the most.
So when a lefty black Princeton scholar slams Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and the race-baiting Al Sharpton in one swoop, it’s worth listening to.
Black Americans voted for Obama’s re-election by an obscene 96 percent, but according to professor Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, his administration has been “lukewarm” toward his natural most faithful constituents, with real assistance virtually “nonexistent.”
“Instead of reaping some sort of benefit from the nation’s first African-American president, since 2008, African-Americans have borne the brunt of the economic crisis in the United States in any number of ways,” Taylor, a professor of African-American studies, told a groups of socialist students at Temple University during a class last week.
In a video of the lecture, apparently taped secretly and first obtained by Campus Reform, Taylor is caustic toward the president’s record, and the performance of Attorney General Eric Holder in responding to the August race riots in Ferguson, Mo.
“It is true that the Obama administration dispatched Eric Holder, the attorney general, to Ferguson … But that was also a way to diffuse the general protest to send a message that ‘something was being done,’” Taylor said.
But the same thing happened with the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla., Taylor said, and nothing came of the investigation.
Basically, it’s a sham – and it’s a sham being played on blacks to land ignorant votes for the Democratic Party.
It’s important to note here that Taylor isn’t a right wing black intellectual like the brilliant Thomas Sowell, or conservative entrepreneur like Armstrong Williams.
She’s an Occupy type — a socialist who supports the Palestinians, writes for the Socialist Worker and despises the tea party.
So she’s wrong about literally everything. But this is one thing Taylor and the tea party can agree on: Obama’s presidency has been a disaster for black Americans even more than it has for the country as a whole.
Just like the Great Society and just about every other aspect of liberalism has been a greater disaster for blacks than for the country as a whole.
And still they’ve sold themselves to the Democrat plantation.
It’s really the ugliest thing about the disaster of the Obama presidency.
