Is Barack Obama Effectively Helping The Black Community?

“Under the 1st African American president in the history of the most powerful empire ever, before Rome, look how black folks who are poor and working being treated. Also, look at little baby Aliyanna Stanley-Jones, the 7-year-old who was shot by Detroit police in a reckless raid of her home. Look at Sean Grant, who New York City Police shot to death the night before his wedding. The list goes on. Yet, Obama and his and his Justice Department have failed to address these issues in any significant way. No hate crimes charges. No real stance against police brutality. And its not just about literal murders. It’s also about slow death that people experience when they lose their homes and can’t get quality jobs, healthcare or education.” – Mumia Abu-Jamal
