I am only giving my opinion on this because Urban radio show host Tavis Smiley talks out both sides of his mouth and causes political confusion. He laments President Barack Obama justifiably for his ineffective policies to help show Black Americans they can make it in today’s America, then he turns around and blames Republicans with racist innuendos.
Smiley told Megyn Kelly Barack Obama failed black Americans as president.
Tavis Smiley: I’m not sure we are and I think ultimately the president missed a moment… On every leading economic issue, in the leading economic issues Black Americans have lost ground in every one of those leading categories. So in the last ten years it hasn’t been good for black folk. This is the president’s most loyal constituency that didn’t gain any ground in that period.
I am sure most will agree Tavis was correct in this cut segment from YouTube but I believe he’s also part of the problem with providing no viable solutions. Maybe Tavis should run for office to see if the people would support his views. What do you think?
