Liberals are beginning to realize how much Obama has hurt all the great work that was accomplished by Martin Luther King. Obama has literally segregated the black community. All the years on making schools diversified so everyone be equal has all been thrown out the window. The black youth hate whites, hate cops, demand segregation in schools, in dorms and are demand safe spaces where they can be away from whites. It’s a shame that Obama and the media have convinced these kids to want what is the complete opposite of progress. PLEASE TAKE NATIONAL POLLS AND PETITIONS.

Liberal black broadcaster Tavis Smiley has criticized Obama for taking blacks for a ride in reverse. As Smiley told HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski, “Sadly — and it pains me to say this — over the last decade, black folk, in the era of Obama, have lost ground in every major economic category.” Smiley is almost completely correct. Based on the Obama administration’s own latest-available statistics by the most basic economic-performance metrics — with one key exception — black Americans are worse off now than when Obama was sworn in on January 20, 2009. The one bright spot is the unemployment rate. For black Americans overall, that number from the Bureau of Labor Statistics has slid from 12.7 percent when Obama was inaugurated to 8.8 percent last month — down 30.7 percent.
The unemployment rate for black teenagers (ages 16 to 19) also declined over the same period, from 35.3 percent to 23.3 percent — down 34 percent. But, more ominously, the seasonally adjusted labor-force-participation rate for black Americans across the board has slipped from 63.2 percent to 61.7 percent — down 2.4 percent. RELATED: The World According to O The seasonally adjusted labor-force-participation rate for black teenagers also sagged from 29.6 percent to 28.8 percent — down 2.7 percent. During Obama’s tenure, the percentage of black Americans struggling below the poverty line has advanced, according to the most recent Census Bureau data, from 25.8 in 2009 to 26.2 in 2014 — up 1.6 percent.
Real median income among black households during those years, according to the Census Bureau, sank from $35,954 to $35,398 — down 1.5 percent. RELATED: Obama’s Legacy Is Already Collapsing The number of black food-stamp participants exploded across that time frame from 7,393,000 to 11,699,000, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reports — up 58.2 percent. Also, from Obama’s oath of office through the fourth quarter of 2015, the percentage of black Americans who own homes foundered from 46.1 percent to 41.9 percent, according to the Census — down 9.1 percent.
