‘What Have You Done for Black People?’ Obama Sits Down in Person With The Breakfast Club (Watch)

obama breakfast club

President Obama’s jam-packed book tour for “A Promised Land” stopped by The Breakfast Club Wednesday morning for a wide-ranging interview, including the ongoing question by that one Black person in your orbit who keeps asking, “What has Obama done for Black people?”

DJ Envy asked Obama how he takes it when people question what he’s done for people of color, or say that he hasn’t done enough.

“I understand it because when I got elected, there was so much excitement and hope… And I also think we generally viewed the presidency as almost like a monarchy.In the sense of, ‘once the President is there he can just do whatever he needs to get done and if he’s not doing it then it must be because he didn’t want to do,’” Obama said.

He then pointed out that the current president appears to be able to “do what he wants” because he “breaks the law.”  But Obama said he was very confident in what he had done for “Black folks” during his time in office “because I had the statistics to prove it.”

He said that among his accomplishments for African Americans, 3 million more Black people had health insurance who didn’t have it before, the number of Black folks in prison dropped for the first time in years, 30 percent fewer people were in the juvenile correction system, Black poverty dropped to its lowest level since 1968, Black businesses and income rose, and data shows that “millions of Black folks were better off by the time I left office.”

After Charlamagne Tha God pressed him to be more specific about his policies that aided Black people, rather than the “rising tide lifts all boats” answer, Obama conceded, “There is no way in eight years to make up for 200 years.”

Here’s Obama’s full interview with DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne Tha God.

vaughn N***** mitchell thats what make people like you a n*****, thats why the community is in distress, you dont ahve no type of embarrassment when you take a look at the black community in 2020, compare that with the 1990s, niggers like you are full of excuses and have never contributed anything to the black community, as long as you get government hand out you are ok with all and this is sad.

Now that they are questioning that house negro dor not doing anything for not doing anything for the community the people are uneducated to you, but those arw the same people who voted for him, but you dumb n***** ass blame Trump for everything that went on in the black community when none of you niggers never supported Trump and all your so call negro leaders including your congress said they would never sad and work with Trump, now i don't know how they expecting to work bipartisan on behalf of the people if they wont reach out to the sitting president, but those same leaders and congress were sitting woth Obama what exactly they achieved you dumb n*****?

You said the senate was the reason he could not do anything for black, well let see how much you know since the black community is uneducated for questioning that house negro, how many of the senate for same sex marriage when obama signed it to law, how many of the senate voted for the Daca law, how many of the senate votes to bail out Gm and Citi bank when they sais it was not government business to bail out companies who have been badly manage and giving big bonuses to their CEO while going under? And that are just a few, we dont need an argument from you, answer the questions, post the facts and the rest of us can research, otherwise it will prove how much of a dumb n***** you are, stop being a fan and a f*****, be concern about what works and who ia doing for the community, you niggers arw happy dancing on the streets like ita the end of slavery because biden win but cannot tell me why exactly, but you niggers are just being happy for your master and white people, every one watching you slave niggers and laughing, now this is sad

When u have to deal with some uneducated black people who expect a black president to come in and give black people everything, when the Republicans ran the senate and kept blocking everything he tried to do including blocking judges. They need to wait up, some had no problem voting for Trump, who tried to get black votes thrown out in wayne county detroit. The same Trump who is trying to take away birthers citizenship.
