They have officially worn this man out.

Damn

I guarantee you he ain’t lost not a moment of sleep over the Black community so ask me if my Black ass give a fuck

This prevalent idea that President Obama “doesn’t care about Black people,” while I understand where the feelings come from, is tiring. I don’t believe the man doesn’t care about Black people, but I do believe he is in a particularly TOUGH position as the President of the USA, not the President of Black USA. Should he be doing more? Sure. Yes. Of course. But I think, too often, people don’t give the man the benefit of the doubt while trying to drag him. He sits in the (supposedly) highest seat of power in America, answers to a shit ton of folks, is the first Black man to do so, etc. He can’t just step into the Office of the President, and start focusing solely on Black folks. Hear me when I say, though: he HAS dropped the ball in places regarding Black Americans. But I refuse to believe he doesn’t think about us, care about us, etc. and I refuse to come for his throat mercilessly.
