This is for The Obama Groupies.
This is what I always ask those Obama groupies.
By Olatunji Mwamba
Can you name one piece of legislation that President Obama has proposed to Congress that specifically addresses issues that negatively affects Black people?
Can you name one piece of legislation (HB# or SB# citations) that President Obama has proposed to Congress or co-sponsored that any other Legislator has proposed to Congress or any Presidential Executive Orders, including the citations# that he has issued that specifically, addresses any of the myriads of issues that negatively affect Black people–Specific only to us as opposed to those laws and/or Presidential Executive Orders he signed into law or issued for other specific groups that were specific just to them?
Keep mind, I didn’t say ratified. I only used the term proposed legislation by either President Obama or any Legislator in my question. In addition, I asked if anyone could produce the citation# of any Presidential Executive Orders that President Obama issued that specially addresses any of the negative issues that negatively affect Black people?
In addition, Obama was the biggest proponent of the ‘LGBTQIA Agenda’.
Where was his ‘Black Agenda’?
Here are some things he did for other various groups in this Country.
He wrote several Executive Orders, including:
(1) Executive Orders for the protection of Illegal Aliens such as DACA, etc.
(2) Protection of The LGBTQIA community. Support for ‘The Marriage Equality Act’, etc. Presidential Executive Orders to protect Transgendered people, The ‘Bathroom Laws’, etc.
(3) He paid the Jews $12 million dollars in Reparations for the Holocaust, even though the United States had no hand in the participation of that act, itself.
(4) He signed ‘The Blue Alert Law’ Legislation into law to protect Police Officers. But he provided no legal protection to Black people from the Police Officers for the murders of unarmed Black people and other forms of Police Brutality at all.
(5) Do you know about his Policies in Afrika? Do you know how he used AFRICOM in Afrika, against Afrikan people?
(6) He never chose one Black Candidate for the U.S. Supreme Court, either male or female. But he nominated a Lesbian Jew—Elena Kagan and a Puerto Rican—Sonia Sotomayor to the Court.
So, don’t tell me his hands were tied. His hands weren’t tied at all. It is obvious that he had no intentions of doing anything of qualitative or quantitative substance for Black people. Were this not so, he’d have sponsored some Legislation, co-sponsored Legislation, or written some Presidential Executive Orders to affect some qualitative or quantitative change for us, too. Sadly, he didn’t sponsor any Legislation, or co-sponsored Legislation, or write any Executive Orders exclusively for us at all. He didn’t try to implement anything as regards to protecting Black people against Police Brutality or anything else.
What Obama offered to Black people was symbolism, hope, and eloquent speeches about us, and about our not expecting handouts from him, while we watched him do things for other organized groups. Black people are not expecting handouts.
Why didn’t Obama, as a lawyer, at least address and propose policies that addressed the systemic policies of Racism white-Supremacy, that are still set in place that creates and maintains unfair disadvantages for Black people specifically? Most of the policies that were put in place to be barriers for Black people are still in place. And notice, I said proposed. He had the opportunity to propose whatever he wanted, even if it got blocked or was ever ratified by Congress. But he never proposed anything exclusively for Black people at all. He wouldn’t even stand up and speak out against Racism at ‘the U.N. Conference of Racism’ held in Geneva, Switzerland, back in 2009. He chose not to attend, nor send a Delegation of Representatives from the United States to ‘the U.N. Conference on Racism’. He chose, instead to boycott it.
And, by the way, for those who claim the President doesn’t have the authority to propose Legislation to Congress, to be enacted into law, here is Article Two, section 3, of the Constitution of the United States.
“He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient;…”
Below is just some of the qualitative and quantitative things Obama did for other groups, while he failed to do anything for Black people.

Obama Says Blacks Must Take Responsibility
Why didn’t he lay the blame where it belongs, on the system of Racism white-Supremacy, and those who created it, and benefit by it? Particularly since he didn’t do anything to help alleviate the problems created by that system.
