A very moving plea that will fall on deaf ears and hard hearts. Obama's interest in Black Americans goes as deep as his agenda (i.e., how can I use them?). That goes for most liberals, too. The Black community itself lacks any leadership -- at least, any that they will listen to -- that will look them in the eye and tell them what truly is at the root of their social/economic/moral problems. There were such high hopes for this segment of the population during the Civil Rights Movement. People looked at Dr. King as representing their great potential. Then the destruction began as liberals took aim and enslaved Blacks once more with stirred anger, a false sense of entitlement, and welfare.
