    SEAN HANNITY, HOST: My last question to you. You often do these seminars with the state of black America. I've watched them on C-Span and different channels, right?

    TAVIS SMILEY: Right.

    HANNITY: Are black Americans better off five years into the Obama presidency?

    SMILEY: Let me answer your question very forthrightly. No, they are not. The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category. On that regard, the president ought to be held responsible.

    Keep those freebies coming and keep playing the victim card and black folks will still think he's the greatest black POTUS since Clinton. They are being scammed.

    The answer would be the same regardless of the ethnic group-except Mexican invaders who are not deported.

    CC, you are correct. Under Obama, all ethnic groups have taken a hit. Blacks though, have taken the largest hit. However, factor in the freebies that aren't counted as income and I'm not so sure.

    It's pretty sad and I've seen this coming for years. Take Obamacare, IF businesses can elude coverage costs by cutting employees to 29 hours what will that do to many, perhaps millions, of AfAms who hold a full time job at the moment?

    Look at his debt:

    He spent how many hundreds of billions on job creation(green energy) that failed almost completely?

    How about his stimulus, what did that create?

    Because of his excessive spending we will soon be less able to free up money(without creating more debt) to develop programs that actually help improve the lives of low income Americans. Soon we won't be able to make investments. It's sad that he pee'd it away to shore up the economy in order to save his Presidency from having a well deserved meltdown and, hopefully, subsequent restructuring.

    TARP? Nothing but a multi hundreds of billion dollar giveaway because our financial institutions, primarily Goldman Sachs, committed some kind of fraud that, apparently, they bare no responsibility for.

    My guess is blacks will be screaming even louder for government help next election cycle once they realize how poorly they fared during Obama.

    A rising tide floats all boats. A slack tide leaves many boats on the beach. More minority boats on the beach as the tide rises very slowly with President Dumbasses policies.

    I don't think anyone in their right mind could possibly respect the mainstreams version of black leadership in this country.

    Maybe they should have voted for Obama. Isn't that how it works, support him and you get lucrative Green Energy loans?

    Cause and effect of a massive recession that affects the bottom up most

    Always has, always will

    Correlation is irrelevant

    Travis would know the above mentioned, but if you followed him at all, you would know he has an agenda to help the plight of black people

    And while that if fine for an individual, the president doesn't have the liberty of trying to specifically uplift the black community

    In essence, he is being blamed for less Gov intervention, which I doubt you guys are for

    You're echoing what would be the talking points of liberal media if a Republican were President atm. There would likely be a thread about this if Romney had been elected. If there were, and you participated, you would say the same thing- that it's not Romney's fault.

    You've probably already considered that Obamacare thing stands to set blacks back as well if employers reduce hours. I cannot see how a currently uninsured person making less money could possibly afford it or be penalized for not. I imagine Smiley's nervous about it. Maybe eventually the uninsured just enjoy free healthcare from a system bankrupt from day one? I don't know, I'm just wondering what direction we are really taking. The Democrats cannot possibly believe we have a system ready( or even close), that will insure the uninsured, charge a reasonable(no REASONABLE) price for coverage, have enough paying participants to stay solvent.

    Under Obamacare, the way it is written, there is almost no away businesses can do anything but cut employees permanently or reduce their hours. My fear is that a lot of those people will be black Americans. That cannot be the result Obama wanted(unless he's evil) but it's a real possibility.

    The only thing I would ask of you is that to consider Obamacare may be destructive economically and decide at what point you would be willing to concede that. If we get down the road and if it's negative for the economy and insolvent will you stop making excuses and see it for what it is? It's not that difficult. I concede invading Iraq was a terrible mistake. I've heard/read nonpartisans saying it won't likely insure the uninsured, ever. It really should piss you off that Obamacare appears to be so poorly planned overall.

    i don't care about hypothetical's and neither should you

    its a weak argument regardless of how right you may be

    this isn't a black issue but a poor issue, in which blacks have a high percentage

    I'm sure you understood I was framing it as a partisan issue. If a Pub were President you wouldn't likely defend him as you did Obama, you would blame. Moreover, this is quite significant and we won't hear it on the liberal media outlets, nor will the standard NCAA flag wavers make an issue out of it.

    Besides, there's nothing to argue. Obama has done a poor job creating jobs. That's the issue. You can't have it both ways. If this were a Republican in office for six years it would be big news. Everything he's done has or will make it more expensive, if not impossible, for blacks to maintain what standard of living they have now. What do you think's going to happen to the value of everyone's money when it's time to pay up?
