Since he was supposed to herald hope and change -- that's a new era he has a war against black Americans this administration has shamelessly played the race cars look at the unemployment rate look at that failed high school drop -- rates we need to fight in these communities against the over regulations and -- policy that killing black people they control your needs they give you literally whether it's the government she's.
To the tax return the job of the Congressional Black Caucus is that keep them uneducated and arm and addicted to govern our.
-- was Edinburgh fascinating segment on my friend Sean Hannity so the other night.
African Americans who weren't on board with this president and getting tired of all the being -- Uncle Tom because they didn't agree with his president.
Now many in the media called the whole thing up bars and Hannity show -- set up.
Allen west here to say more a reflection of a growing minority anger.
That's just pent up.
Alan welcome good to have you what did you think about and what they've.
With what they've always a pleasant male.
Well it's absolutely right I think that when you look at the black community they have to see a failure in these liberal progressive.
Almost socialist policies.
You know when you have also want to like go Melissa Harris Perry over and MSNBC talking about how we have a collective responsibility for our children.
If -- look at what the statistic is in the black community only 30% of black children have mothers and fathers in the home.
Look at these inner city communities like Detroit look at what is going on with the gun violence in the gang violence in Chicago.
My own neighborhood in Atlanta Georgia which of course was the exact same neighborhood to dock tomorrow with the king junior grew up.
If you walked out Auburn avenue which used to be a thriving center of black entrepreneurship the small business.
It's just a shell of itself so while we have to be -- concern.
-- we have to start breaking away from this dependency society and get back to an opportunity society it.
Promoted the right type of policies that enable that to occur.
You know allies to -- -- -- today when I heard the president mention as he released his budget very late -- -- -- Somebody didn't want to do anything that would that would put the pressure on the backs of the middle class of -- by inference minorities.
Because that would be unfair so tax the bridge of the rich today.
Their fair syrup a team he is repeated again and again but even on top of the taxes they've already paid.
It that ever gonna target -- sell bonds does that level and and and thinking back to this group that that song was talking to.
How does that make you feel.
Well first of all it's a false argument that the president is bringing forward.
Because if you continued to -- people as he has done close to one point three trillion in new taxes and the Affordable Care Act.
He's -- about one point one trillion in new taxes in his new budget.
He already got 600 billion dollars in new taxes from the quote unquote fiscal cliff deal.
What you see happening is the lessening of opportunities.
You -- small businesses being able to grow and expand.
The fact that you have a copy -- and obamacare that says.
If you go over fifty employees you're going to be.
You know five do you have a mandate to provide certain type of health insurers so we see people being taken off a full -- equivalency.
-- -- put all part time.
So these policies are affecting what he calls the beloved middle class I don't believe that there's a class or caste system in America.
But you look at what has happened to median family incomes and especially.
Black family median family incomes.
They are just absolutely dropping.
Down to the to the to the bottom if -- the more you look at teenage unemployment.
Especially in the black community.
It's atrocious the real unemployment level in the black community is not just what is reported between thirteen to 14%.
-- probably closer to 20%.
So why as a groups that are African Americans and you could argue by -- and Hispanics.
You know almost lockstep with the president despite those very -- Unemployment numbers among these demographic groups why so disproportionately.
Well there are two factors when you look at the president specifically.
Ever want wanted to quote -- quote historical moment of having the first black president but then of course people came back around they -- to have the first reelected black president.
But if you put that aside and then all of course you also have the emotional.
Argument that the liberals are always -- these contemporary liberal progressives are able to make it demonizing.
The policies that really could help people.
That's why you see the the black community being so overwhelmingly in 90% plus.
Voted for Democrats but I believe that slowly but surely would start to see the failure look.
It was the former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus.
Emanuel Cleaver out of Kansas City, Missouri who -- it.
That if there was anyone else in the White House that they -- be -- -- on the White House so for whatever reason they think that they can give a pass of this president.
Because because of his skin color.
I think that that can be racist in and of itself because we should look to have a good president.
That's just a president that is the first black president of the first woman president or -- first Hispanic president.
That will continue to see -- going out a path of politics and gimmicks and not good policy -- think you know exactly what I'm talking about.
That is very well senate congressman it's always a pleasure thank you.
Thanks you got -- and one and.
