Emanuel Cleaver of the Congressional Black Caucus: If Obama wasn't president, we would be ‘marching on the White House.

I really would like to thank Congressman Emanuel Cleaver of the Congressional Black Caucus for unknowingly exposing the truth about the Congressional Black Caucus. You see, the myth that has been created and circulated over the years is that the CBC actually is looking out for the concerns of black Americans. Thanks to Mr. Cleaver's own words, we now know that has never been the case. Mr. Cleaver said last week "If [former President] Bill Clinton had been in the White House and had failed to address this problem, we probably would be marching on the White House. I don';t believe that for one second." Since Obama is black and is a progressive, the CBC will do nothing more then continue to be the good subservient Democratic lap dogs they have been known to be. If the record high black unemployment rate of today happened under George W Bush, then and only then would we be hearing the yelling, complaining and attacks directed at the president. They wouldn't do it, because the black unemployment rate was at a record high. They would be attacking him based on him being "white and more importantly REPUBLICAN". The CBC can give a dam about blacks. It doesn't take a person with glasses to see the obvious. The only thing they've ever given blacks since their conception is lip service and more lip service. I talk about Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson being classified as race hustlers and poverty pimps, the Congressional Black Caucus is no exception. Blacks are nothing more then a vote for the Democratic Party and the CBC. It would be foolish to also think that the CBC would have dared to say an ill word towards Bill Clinton if the black unemployment rate was back then what it is today. In other words, they know their role and know when to speak. Obama isn't no different then any other person who has occupied 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, so why should he not be called out and held accountable for his economic policies negatively impacting blacks? Any Republican president would have been.

It's nice to know as black college graduates can't find a job, the Congressional Black Caucus will continue to turn a blind eye and not address the root cause of the problem because of the color of the person's skin and party affiliation.

The young lady who said that "white applicants have an upper hand than blacks". I tend to disagree with that.

Statistically, more people of color, and women, have a much better chance of landing a job than their white, male counterparts. Much has to do with affirmative action.

I don't understand how some blacks think Obama is doing a "great job" when there are those who are looking for a job, or are in a dead end job, with a degree that they can't use because of the economy.

During the Hoover administration, thousands of people were marching around and to the White House during the Great Depression. And most of those people were white.
