The Urban League gave Obama extremely good marks for everything but his record on black America. Obama was too busy golfing and partying with celebrities to do much for the black community as president.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Urban League cites Obama ‘failures’ for black America in ‘excellent’ report card
The National Urban League issued an “excellent” report card for President Obama’s eight years, but highlighted numerous and important “failures,” so many that they totaled 42 percent of its review.
“While we scored many of the administration’s achievements with our highest rating, ‘Superior,’ President Obama’s tenure as a whole had shortcomings due to some notable missed opportunities and outright failures, such as the economic development of urban centers, gun violence and the foreclosure rate and bank closure rate in communities of color and low-income neighborhoods. On these and other issues, we rated the Obama administration ‘Fair’ or ‘Poor,'” wrote Urban League President Marc H. Morial.
The 16-page report card reviewed eight areas of policy impacting urban areas and African Americans, and found that Obama’s success to failure rate at 57.5 percent to 42.5 percent.
Won’t it be ironic if Trump ends up being better for black Americans than Obama?
It could happen.
Trump promised many times during the campaign to make America great again for all Americans, including black Americans. He’ll do it, too.
