Al Sharpton (and Fellow Race Baiters) To Deliver “Black Agenda” Demand List To Obama…

Black Agenda ?

WASHINGTON DC - Following a four-hour closed door meeting Monday, the leaders of four African-American advocacy groups emerged looking pleased to announce a collective wish list they plan to deliver to President Barack Obama for his second term.

The “black agenda,” as the groups have called their wish list on Twitter, starts with ensuring the fiscal cliff doesn’t disproportionately hurt black Americans. That’s something Marc Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League, has worried about before. But Morial also listed five new priorities that came out of what he called Monday’s “historic gathering.” Those include: working for parity for blacks in education, health care and the economy; reforming the criminal justice system; and protecting and defending voting rights.

The White House did not immediately respond to request for comment about whether the president would make these priorities a focus during his second term.

But according to Morial, the voting rights priority is key. “When our community was challenged by voter suppression…they reacted with power, with dignity and with force,” he said.

Jesse Jackson Al SharptonDespite allegations by liberal advocacy groups that voter suppression tactics by the right hindered minority voting, blacks represented 13 percent of the electorate in 2012, a percentage about equivalent with 2008.

But Al Sharpton, the founder and president of the National Action Network and a liberal commentator for MSNBC, warned Monday that “the voter suppression tactics we saw this year are still in front of us.”

Sharpton also compared the new black agenda with the Civil Rights March on Washington, a major demonstration by African-American civil rights groups in 1963 that led to two major pieces of legislation: the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965.   (read more)

    Marc Morial – ah yes, a name most familiar to those who live in New Orleans. Marc was mayor from ’94 to 2002 and got out of town (to become the Prez&CEO of the Urban League, allegedly ahead of some investigations as to goings-on in his Administration. A number of his co-politicians and at least one family member came under state and Federal investigations for fiscal irregularities and some co-travelers who’ve gone on to higher NOLA political positions are either off to jail or still under heavy scrutiny. Some wags say that his fast disappearance from town was to avoid subpenas from grand juries and that his being almost immediately vacuumed up in ’08 by the POtuS after his November coup saved him from any Federal investigations. In any event, I’m sure that there list of demands will be eminently fair and acceptable, there not being much left that they can steal from the already exsanguinated working class.

    Translation –
    Fiscal cliff doesn’t “disproportionately” affect blacks = don’t touch the welfare and food stamps, instead raise taxes on people making > $250,00.
    Working for parity for blacks in education = pass them no matter what the do or don’t do in the classroom. All tests should be written in english AND ebonics.
    Healthcare = not just free emergency room visits, but free preventative care and dental care and eye care as well.
    Economy = what, me work? How ’bout another free cell phone? I dropped my last one in the toilet when I was getting rid of the evidence.
    Reforming the criminal justice system = get out of jail free card.
    Protecting and defending voting rights = another fraudulent election next time around.

    Again, the Republicans need to make Obama non-relevant. They create legislation, they pass appropriations…take Obama out of the equation as much as possible.

    Can you imagine the EARTHSHAKING uproar if a group of NON-blacks tried to deliver a “WHITE Agenda” demand list to Obama! Even the Black Hills of South Dakota would scream “RACIST!!”

    PLEASE! Blacks have become so empowered under this administration it makes me ill. How about some of you self-professed black leaders actually try to do something about the real issues in the black communities. For example; illegitimate children, drug abuse, wanting handouts and not wanting to work, violence and all criminal behavior is all the white man’s fault right? Get over it already.
