President Obama states the obvious; he does not care about Black people
Speaking of issues specific to Black America, particularly Black men, Green Party candidates for elected office have been speaking out against police violence directed towards Black men.

MoveOn is targeting Dick’s Sporting Goods CEO telling him to stop selling to stop supplying and selling high capacity magazines for assault rifles.

American hurdler Lolo Jones is upset with a New York Times article questioning why she has received so much more media coverage and corporate support when more deserving female athletes were shunned. Lolo misses the point entirely while she has one wWhite parent and one Black parent, she seems ignorant to the cultural bias of corporate America. There is also another lesson, hard work, values and perseverance does not always lead to reward if you are Black in America.
