From the start President Barack Obama has shown little interest or loyalty in the issues that affect the poor, working class, and people of color in the United States. For almost his entire first term he didn't utter the words poor or poverty. Early on he reminded African Americans: “I’m not the president of black America. I’m the president of the United States of America…”

“The country’s back to pretty much where it was when this president started,” Mr. Jealous told MSNBC host David Gregory on “Meet the Press.” “White people in this country are doing a bit better. Black people are doing a full point worse.”

Under George Bush it wasn't close to this bad, and they hated him. Amazing what skin color can do, if your black, you can kill each others kids, rape each others wives and ruin an entire country. But if you white, you are just a bigoted racist. Amazing.
