Black Chicagoans Slam Pres. Obama Over Shootings, Not Local Politicians

Obama Chicago critic

Reported by April V. Taylor

President Obama has received his share of criticism regarding the illegal immigration crisis that has unfolded in recent months, but the source of recent disdain may be surprising to some.  Rather than coming from Republican conservatives, Obama is being criticized by black people who are from the Southside of Chicago, which is where Obama worked as a community organizer before getting into politics.  According to the Washington Times, video has surfaced from a protest held in Chicago regarding the recent rash of shootings over the Fourth of July weekend that saw 9-14 people killed and more than 60 injured.

Residents specifically took issue with Obama’s request for $3.7 billion to address the border crisis.  One resident stated, “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaking the African American community and African American families, I think that’s a disgrace.  And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago.  He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected.  Bill Clinton was the African American president.”

A woman present at the protest went on to address her comments specifically to Obama stating, “Mr. President, we’re asking for you,” one woman said. “You’re spending billions of dollars in Texas, but we’ve a problem here in Chicago. We will not stand by this here, and keep letting this senseless killing and shooting happen in our community.”  Another resident even called for Obama’s resignation stating, “President Barack needs to pay attention to Chicago, if he can not pay attention to Chicago and the African American community, he needs to resign.”

Perhaps one of the most condemning statements made was a resident comparing the state of the African American community to conditions that existed during slavery: “Today, if you look at the time that we were brought here as slaves 400 years ago, we got the same results today.”

This is not the first time African Americans have spoken out about the border crisis or the harm that amnesty could cause to black people and black neighborhoods.  Black protestors from Murietta, California, where illegal immigrants are being shipped from the border, have also expressed their disapproval.  One woman stated, “It’s just too much…We already have our own poor people.  Starvation, kids walking with no shoes…We don’t need other people’s kids to bring more problems…We’re already in debt as it is.”

Although it is still unclear what Obama will do to solve the border crisis, one thing that is clear is that Democratic politicians are disregarding the concerns and needs of black Americans to address the needs of foreigners.  U.S Commission on Civil Rights member Peter Kirsanow has consistently spoke up about the fact that allowing amnesty will increase competition for low-skilled jobs that are largely worked by African Americans.  The National Review’s Jeff Sessions has pointed out that immigration rates from 1980 to 2000 have led to a 7.4 percent reduction in wages for low-skilled workers.  Although the Democratic party has largely built its brand around being a party that works to protect the interests of the black community, it now appears as though many Democrats are setting this approach aside in favor of wooing a new and growing population of illegal immigrants that may, if granted amnesty, be able to bring larger numbers of votes.

  1. Isn’t that the problem? Everything is either the white man’s fault or Obama’s fault? I wonder if those blaming the president even know the names of their local politicians, black or white.

    • They are appealing to a local politician who happens to be in the White House!

  2. Here here

  3. I wonder how Obama would address 500 non black people being murdered in a small condensed area. I bet it would get the attention it deserves. This is a national crisis. Children can’t even walk to school without being harassed.

  4. The White Democratic members are like all whites are into moving back into inner-cities and nothing by the President can be done to it. So forget it!

  5. It is my understanding that President Obama’s administration is seeking funds to process court cases for the unaccompanied children, who by law are entitled to legal defense. It has nothing to do with the normal illegal immigrants.

    What I do not understand, is why leaders, in the Black community are not calling on the Mayor and the Governor of Illinois for relief.

    As a responsible reporter, explain how the President can be relevant in a local matter.

    Instead of the reporter criticizing the Black Leaders it seems as though they are looking to the President,

  6. What are parents doing? This is not Pres. Obama’s fault. Perhaps Rahm can open up a charter school to teach parenting skills.

  7. The Problem was NOT CREATED by this President. Many believe BECAUSE he is Black, he would make a way for 'US". Well GUESS WHAT? He Did and WE WANT SOMETHING FREE! Get RID of That "Snitches Get Stitches" Mentality The Problem in Chicago is simple to solve after that, Go Get a Gun. Learn To Use it. And PROTECT THE BLOCK From crime.

    You look at all the armed people that came the the so called the "Welfare Rancher". Look at ALL the People that came to PRACTICE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT Chicago can do the same and get send the gangs Back underground where they belong.

    The Blocks can and need to armed themselves and Tell World WE Want Our Community BACK! Yes! there is STILL KILLING!..but before taking such realistic measures tell the public about the Right to Bear Arms and Protect your Property and that Chicagoans are READY to SAFE THEIR KIDS AT ALL COST!

  8. Oh my goodness. I understand the people are upset. But they are placing their blame on the wrong person and place. The problem is their own areas. The attitude is their own. The president can't get money for anything without Congress. We see how Congress is not working. So do you think the president is going to get that $3.7 billion? Nope. Now what can president Obama do for the black community that we can't do for ourselves? We have the black church. What are they doing? We have black leaders in the area. What are they doing? This is not the fault of president Obama. This is on us.

  10. They been killing each other in Chicago way before Obama became president. That problem did not just start on the 4th of July weekend. He's not God, maybe they need to get on their knees a little bit more and that would help stop some of the problems in the windy city.

  11. The comments on here are very stupid bunch of blind sheeple arse Knee grows what the hell did you vote for him for if he is of no use to his biggest supporters local governments don’t have nearly as many resources as the federal government that’s why it is appropriate to appeal to the president when there is a state of emergency .

  12. The president should send the national guard to chicago to patrol the streets to stop the violence so that the people can settle down and organize.

  13. They dont want the National Guard everybody is saying no thanks.

  14. AFAIK Grooveshark furthermore is not going to recommend an individual whatever. My spouse and i haven’t identified a really function at any rate, and I’ve been utilizing it intensely going back weeks. IMO Grooveshark provides great improvements over Spotify when you may listen to a large level of new music not having (audio) ads and then for free. In case you have a tally also you can create your very own playlists. My partner and i would not brain realizing exactly why Spotify has such a large adhering to actually (most of the myspace friends usually are located in Norway along with the Nieuwkoop, netherlands, and it’s also pretty large there).
