Obama's Future Direction - Addressing the Needs of Black Communities

Does President Obama's political leadership need to change direction? I think so.

This blog is very interesting:  Dr. Boyce Watkins is arguing that Ben Jealous of the NAACP and Rev. Al Sharpton should no longer be invited to the White House.   He accuses them of "simply repeating the agenda of the Obama Administration and pretending that it is the same as the [B]lack agenda". 

African American communities have particular needs and, although the President's policies, such as the healthcare shake-up, have often benefited people of African heritage, some feel that he has not done enough to support Black people.  

Black voters overwhelmingly supported the President's re-election.  Is it time for him to give something back?  

Is President Obama doing enough for Black people?  Please leave your comments below.
