Is Obama Distancing Himself From Prominent African Americans?
(The Daily Call) — Black Americans have rallied around the president as perhaps no constituency has ever supported an American politician. As of this week, fully 88 percent of black voters approved of Barack Obama. Many predicted Obama’s election would herald a new era of African-American leadership. And yet, curiously, something different has happened. In the last year and a half, Obama has failed to support, run away from or pressured to resign at least ten significant African American political figures – a count does not include his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright.
