Elijah Cummings: Obama Needs To ‘Fight & Fight Harder’ for African-Americans


With black unemployment at Depression levels, Congressional Black Caucus members say they are unhappy with Obama’s dismal record.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), a far left civil rights icon, told CNN today that Barack Obama “needs to fight, and fight harder” for the black community.
The Huffington Post reported:

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), responding to the high unemployment rates in the black community, said that African-Americans feel President Barack Obama “needs to fight, and fight harder.”

“We are totally frustrated, and people need to know that the president feels their pain,” Cummings, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus, told CNN’s Candy Crowley on “State of the Union” Sunday.

“Almost every African-American person I spoke to said he needs to fight, and fight harder,” Cummings said.

Last week, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) blasted Obama for ignoring the black community during his bus tour through the midwest.

“We don’t know why on this trip that he’s in the United States now, he’s not in any black community,” she said at a jobs forum in Detroit. “We want to give him every opportunity, but our people are hurting. The unemployment is unconscionable. We don’t know what the strategy is,” she continued. “We’re supportive of the president, but we getting tired, y’all, getting tired.”

    Yeah. The problem is that Obama only fights for himself. Why should he give the black community much if any attention? He’s already got their votes.

  • Conservative Ken

    Elijah Cummings is doing no favors for Blacks, period. America’s virtue is the ability to make it on your own steam, not beg for the inside track to success from the guy in charge.

  • Cee

    It has been shown that the employment in the Black community has been adversely affected by the increase in illegal and legal immigrants. Yet, President Obama supports amnesty for illegals and increasing the number of legal immigrants.

    The Black community needs to support a moratorium on legal immigration and enforcement of current immigration laws requiring the deportation of those illegally in the country.

    He only needs the Black community when it comes to voting, otherwise he does not care whether you have a job or not. Its about being President that concerns him. He has your vote because he is black and he knows that. If you want to give a person a vote because of his skin color, that is a vote forever because he will always be black. MLK said to judge him by the content of his character, but no you do not want to hear that do you? Jesus said never to judge a man by his outward appearance, you can really miss the bus this way.

    Amazing and jaw-dropping stupid. After “great society” programs have decimated African-Americans they continue to cling to the democrats. No sympathy. You want better, earn it.

    Does not matter what blacks say about Obama they will still vote for him and he knows that. Blacks continue to stay on the Dems plantation no matter what they say. Ignorant people with their hands continually out for more more more.

    The OblameO’s own are always the last … The “white like me” bus tour. Not one stop in the black food deserts.

    And you would think OblameO would be the first to champion WDC’s school vouchers program, but he doesn’t want his plantation populated by smart people, so the Democrats shut it down. Teachers unions first. Need more evidence than that, can’t help you.

    All you need to know about the Black Caucus in America, its not what is good for the country, but only what advances their cause. When elected I understood the 90%+ votes for WTF, now after all the financial hardships, failed policies, law by regulation, the failed border policies (that will hurt blacks far more than whites), not so much. And yet they still want him as President for no other reason than they see him as a raciest who will advance their agenda against the evil white man. Well good luck with that, they may keep him but the country will go down the tube and all of America will suffer, not only whites.

  • decentAmerican

    So…I don’t get it. They are “frustrated” with him, they are “tired”, and yet they still support him. WHY?????

    Oh, wait…could it be because, HE’S BLACK???

    and, so it goes friends, the racist democrats speak for themselves again. What if white constituents said that they were frustrated with a president, but only sticking with him, because he was WHITE?

    DEMOCRATS = RACISM

    Just as Allen West said recently, come on black liberals, why are you falling for these lies? He will lead you away from the democrat plantation, you can be a free thinking, independent, success, can’t you? The liberals are the ones keeping you down.

    And just this week, your BLACK president decides to give more amnesty to illegal aliens, which will only take more jobs away from Americans. And with unemployment highest amoung blacks, who do you think it will hurt the most?

    Hey liberals…..why do you hate black americans so much that you would want to hurt them like this?

    Predicable and Obama was suppose to give the Blacks homes according to some of his voters.

    That is not enough…Obama could go out and give them a job…Oh, sorry that is what all people want. Dear God I am so tired of hearing about the black people. Seems Cummings is suppressing her people and NOT really helping the problem. The number of blacks who sit and take because they don’t know any better are the ones Cummings and others should go out of their own comfort zone and talk to.

  • StrangernFiction

    Its not the Tea Party’s fault that Obama used black voters in 2008 and now couldn’t care less about them until he needs them at the ballot box in 2012. They must be fuming that Obama is going to allow illegals to take whatever jobs are left as black americans are left behind.

    While Obama kisses up the constituencies he desperately needs to get re-elected he ignores those who he believes have no where else to go.

    Kenny Solomon — Hi there. Good to see you my friend. Have you noticed the MSM has not covered the attacks on Israel by Egypt and the Pals?

    If Obama gave a daon about unemployment in the Black Community he would start to strictly enforce our immigration laws.

    Presently Millions of jobs are being occuppied illegally by illegal immigrants.

    In other words Tyrone, the reason you can’t find a job is that your job has already been given to a guy named Jose who has a stolen SSN# and no green card. Why don’t you demand that Obama do something about it?

  • Patty

    Absolutely, their job is to sit on the couch and collect tax payers money. After a few months or less on being on Welfare they need to slowly get off it and OFF THE COUCH.

    Get a job, any job and if you are working and still need some help then find. BUT STOP THE FREE LOADING.

  • Patty

    The housing of those who couldn’t afford it was a government project that place us in part of the mess we are in. Take the buildings that are vacated an locate those who are struggling but do have at least a minimum paying job. Try something creative and stop the messing around with just talk.

    If people have a place to stay and vacant building were used for good there would be a win, win.

    There are so many ways to help that wouldn’t put a further drag on economy. These representatives are all talk and no action. Try doing something that will actually help those who do want to work and better themselves without so much help from government.

    Dr. Tumbleweed’s Dictionary:

    fight (verb), e.g., to “fight harder”

    To provide increased entitlements – e.g., housing, education, day care, medical and other subsidies; implement modifcatons to both public and private sector hiring practices; to provide specialty mortage contracts or suspensions; to include reparations in the form of monitary considerations in farm-related contracts and agreements, regardless of occupational data; other such horse manure whose funding is sustained by the taxpayer.

  • Ipso Facto

    Beneath the surface this is actually very interesting. This truly reveals that the Democratic party is not actually a bona fide political party, but instead, it’s nothing more than a motley conglomeration of self-serving interest groups that all function together as a mutually parasitic society.

    The major sub-groups within the Democratic party include the Blacks, the Hispanics, Labor (the unions), Academia, LGBT Americans, Native Americans, Muslims, and the Jews. Amongst these groups, the Jews are the only ones that are not parasites looking for some sort of pay back. All the rest demand some sort of payola before they will lend their support, and that includes: benefits, set-asides, social programs, preferential treatment, affirmative action, etc. Just listen to Rep. Elijah Cummings as she basically says right out in the open – what are you going to do for us? She want
    Thinks to know what the government is going to do for her and her people.

    Think about this. WTF is going on with these people? Does anyone remember John F. Kennedy saying, “Ask NOT what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

    Unfortunately, the benefit pool is drying up because the government not only spend too much money, they went and borrowed money we didn’t have and then they went even further and printed fake money after that! Lets see how long the parasites continue to hang on to the host now that their payola pool is running dry. I don’t think any of these people will ever vote Republican, but it’s certainly likely that many of them will just sit out future elections as they sulk over their new plot in life.

    Hey Elijah! You tell that Negro in the White House that he needs to back the hell off of privately owned WHITE business owners, cut their taxes, eliminate specific regulations on that business, pass the conservative balanced budget amendment before the Senate, so that White business owners can crank up their business ventures, expand production, drill where ever they find oil, and/or get the damn hell off the back of American’s business desires and then all your Black unemployed will be able to find a damn job, and you won’t have anything else to gripe about!!

    It’s all up to you, Maxine Waters, Conyers, and the damn Black Caucus to give White people the right to develope the businesses they know from past experience when it wasn’t against the law to make money in America! Since American prosperity has never depended on the developement of Black owned business, but rather the huge prosperity that has been generated for EVERYONE by White owned private business ventures is what will put America back in the “Black”, no pun intended!

  • jony101

    The black people who want to work are working, the rest don’t want to conform learn proper english, graduate from high school, stop wearing earrings/gang tatoos, pull there pants up. It’s the way it is, same with hispanics who don’t want to learn english and conform. If you look abnormal no one is going to hire you unless it’s the government (but the government ain’t doing much hiring lately, they got enough thugs already).
    Obama knows black people have no money to contribute to his reelection, thats why he is not touring black communities, he knows they will vote for him anyway.

    Blacks create their own unemployment zones. They’re called ghettos. Take a nice neighborhood or community. Move some blacks in. Then some more move in. Then they start destroying the neighborhood, then the schools and shopping. Then the other ethnicities start to leave, such as whites and Asians. Pretty soon the businesses leave because they can’t stay in business due to shortages (theft) outpacing the paying customers. Their insurance premiums rise, prices go up, the blacks rebel and start vandalizing and robbing the stores at night. The businesses shutter, and the jobs are gone. Rinse and repeat across America. Every inner city urban ghetto developed this way. It was once upon a time a nice, peaceful, reasonably prosperous white neighborhood. We now have whole cities that have been destroyed this way.

    That’s why there are no grocery stores in the City of Detroit.

    It wouldn’t surprise me that the “flash mobs” (public looting) will escalate through the next year, and become more frequent, and violent. The Congressional Black Caucus, Obama and the Alinsky Media will talk about how “some people are frustrated they’re being left behind since Congress has failed to act on social issues and jobs”.

    You can just see it coming.

    Patty @ 36 – You’re still talking about the government “doing something”. I don’t want it, and I don’t want a bunch of marginal people moved into vacant houses in nice neighborhoods where the other owners are doing what needs to be done to stay afloat and maintain their properties.

    A better idea would be for the banks that own those properties to hire reputable property management companies to screen qualified renters and give them at least a one year lease. That would take the property off the inventory, thus helping real estate values, get some income into the owner (the bank) to defray their losses, the renter would be assured that the property wouldn’t be sold out from under him such that s/he’d have to move again right away, remove an empty property from a neighborhood which is never helpful, and keep riff-raff from moving into the neighborhood, which has become a problem in many places with a lot of foreclosures being sold for a pittance.

    That’s the only way to stop the bleeding in the real estate market and protect the people who are fighting the good fight to hang onto their homes and preserve the quality of their neighborhoods – the people nobody ever talks about.

    The reason poor people live in dumpy neighborhoods is because they are too lazy and too stupid to maintain and repair their properties. They’d rather buy beer than paint and a lawnmower. I don’t want them living anywhere near us. We’ve worked hard to pay for our home and to maintain it beautifully. I don’t want my neighborhood turned into a dump by a bunch of ne’er-do-wells.

    Joanne @ 37 – I think what we’re seeing is Cummings et. al. boxed into a corner by their own decades-long, post civil rights-era squalling of discrimination. It was easy for Cummings and his ilk to cry racism throughout all the white pub presidencies we’ve had since those days. But now, with a half black elitist in charge, they can’t do that. Yet their problem persists, so either obastard is failing ‘them’ or they’re failing themselves. Whitey isn’t in this equation. It must really be frustrating for blacks to not have a white president to blame for their ills. Instead, they have a black president of their own making in charge. Horrors! tsk tsk. What’s a good screaming racist scumbag to do?

    Obama doesn’t need to fight harder for his black constituents. He needs to fight smarter. He needs to learn that those awful Republicans and those bitter-clinger Tea Partiers are actually smarter than the fabulists of his own party. They have a point, and they have the data on their side.

    The current recession, which was brought about when a housing bubble burst, is responding to the current administration’s fiscal policy in the same manner as the economy of the ’30s responded to the fiscal policies of the time, which attempted to treat a stock bubble with increased government spending and job “creation” that resulted in The Great Depression.

    There have been other recessions, and other policies used to treat them, with varying results.

    The recession of 1920 was treated with lowered taxes and government spending cuts, and resulted in a healthy rebound.

    Since then, other recessions, during the Carter, Reagan, and Bush administrations, were treated with mixed policies and had mixed results. The Carter administration tried various economic price controls, which resulted in shortages and much higher prices. The Reagan and Bush administrations tried tax cuts with insufficient spending cuts, which worked but suffered other problems.

    So, Barack Obama can choose to learn, or continue to fail.

    And all the lies that his administration can concoct won’t change the economic results.

    The only jobs obama saved have been union jobs, not jobs by race. The jobs he has destroyed with his policies apparently have been unintentionally disproportionately black peoples jobs in the private sector. That is what govt. statistics say. Everybody has less opportunity with govt. by fiat. In the face of failed programs, his prescription is more of the same expecting different results. Somehow he seems to believe, that after years of failure in the most powerful position in the world with full party control of both houses of congress, that everything is somebody elses’ fault.

    :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

    I noticed that the NEA-run goverrnment public “Progressive” schools in “ghettos” routinely produce uneducated louts, while Catholic schools in the same neighborhoods out of the same population produce college graduates. Education does remain a ticket out of poverty. Crap education just keeps people there.

    The public schools dumped phonics, dumped math, dumped history, are dumping handwriting, let kids yack thru pointless lessons and they have the nerve to blame students they didn’t conevy ANYTHING useful to for being the reason for the FAIL, as they demand “more money.” Meanwhile, the Catholic schools at a fraction of the cost and the fright of screechy nuns with snapping rulers teach readin’ ‘riting and ‘rithmetic, how to meet and greet people properly, dress correctly and be quiet in class. They do not expect that “race” is a block to achievement, culture and expectations are. Both are learned, not in the genes.

    The whites around here who have grown up with the same corrosive government inputs are just as messed.

    Meanwhile, in AFrica, black youth are routinely bi-lingual, and very eager for education after doing all the chores and jobs for the family to survive each day. Our white kids competed against black AFrican kids in French, German, SPanish and Latin, plus English and the African stduents’ mother tongue – tribal languages. Our Liberal teachers mealy mouth that balcks should learn “Ebonics” wasting students’ time on what is nothing more than corner slang instead of teaching them proper English that will get them off the street and into jobs and college. And fools nod and wring their hands and say, “Oh, okay?”

    To say that the Liberal Left as embodied in the Demnocratic Party has promoted LOW expectations for the American Black community is putting it MILDLY. SInce a lot of money is involved, to the tune of billions of dollars, it starting to look like the Democrats through the institutions they dominate like schools, set up a system for FAIL for Blacks so they could use THAT as EXCUSE to demand more money to “fix” the problem THEY MADE. Most of the time an increase in school funding results in two actions: some sort of new construction – which pays the construction UNIONS and hire of new staff which means more union dues being paid in.

    Actual teaching or excellent curriculum instead of Liberal Left crap? ZIP. These so-called educators have gotten a lot of mileage out of blaming “poverty” or “race” for THEIR FAILS. ENOUGH!!!!! It’s a cheap and dirty dodge, the refudge of greedy cheaters who’ll short-shrift chidlren to pad their own paychecks and political organizations to keep anyone from changing the status quo.

    dunce @ 65 – I think obastard’s plan is to destroy traditional American culture and prosperity. You give him far more credit than I do. You seem to think he wants a good outcome through a proven bad methodology. I think he wants to further that methodology, under the guise of ‘doing good’, to bring about destruction of the middle class by pushing it down to the lower/bottom/marginal class. He may well believe that a rising tide lifts all boats, and for that very reason he is suppressing the tide. I think the man is downright evil.

    Black ‘middleclassness’ that hypnotizes the successful brother or sister
    into believing they are better than the rest and teaches them to think in
    terms of ‘we’ and ‘they’ instead of ‘US’!” — Barack Obama

    Rather, your intention is to do anything but “TELL THE TRUTH.” You’re here only to deceive. It’s a game you play for an evil master.

    The most “trash-littered yard” wouldn’t look as bad as you; or “crap music” sound as awful.

    You are more shattered than any window could ever be.

    The hour is late to be so broken and lost. Despite my earlier words to you, I hope you find the way to bind yourself up again.

    It’s evil you’ve given yourself over to — Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals were dedicated to Lucifer.

    If one must lie and deceive a people – whether it be for political gain or to advance a “religion” – it should register in the heart or mind of the healthy that it’s best to flee — for that requirement is evil and no good can come from it.

    Nothing more. Nothing less.

    Wanumba @ 67 – My husband is a teacher so I am very familiar with what you’re saying. I agree wholeheartedly with all of it, except for one thing, and I know it for a fact: The white kids who don’t learn because of the dumbed-down standards and curricula are strictly victims. These standards and curricula have been lowered so blacks can “succeed” in being passed through. THEY are the ones who are the behavior problems, THEY are the ones who are debilitatingly disrepectful and disruptive, and THEY are the ones committing violent acts and who quickly go on to become violent offenders in large numbers. The whites become trailer trash working at low-paying jobs and on welfare, but they typically do not become violent offenders.

    I’ll take your word for the education of African blacks. It almost can’t help be better than what they’ve done to themselves here. But, so far, I haven’t seen any rocket scientists or monumental inventions, disease cures, etc., coming out of the black African countries. Maybe I just haven’t heard about them. 🙂

    Amen..

    really can’t tell you haw many articles written by Educated Blacks, not
    only stating about the same, but much more, and to be honest, much
    harsher as well..

    mcc – Now you sound like some sort of rambling paranoid zealot. What have I said or done that is deceptive? Everything I’ve said is based on 59 years of observations and a lot of exposure to decaying American institutions overrun by the evil left. What you seem to object to is having those observations voiced out of fear that it makes conservatives look bad. Too bad. I say it’s time for people like you to quit cowering and start challenging those who are perpetrating this on America. So far, I haven’t called you a rat operative for cringing at the truth and criticizing me for speaking it, but I’m starting to wonder. You would not be the only one here that I’ve observed doing just that. The left always wants to beat down the conservative voice of truth, and they are well known to plant “centrist” types to convince true conservatives to tone down their rhetoric. The fact that you keep attacking me for speaking my mind suggests you may well be doing exactly that – trying to shut up conservative voices that want our country restored by defeating the left. Anyway, I’m not going to shut up about any of it.

    bg – that’s just more proof the Community Organizer views himself as strictly black, that that’s a big deal to him in that he defines himself as black, not American, and that he DOES NOT want black people to aspire to anything above what he and the other elitists want them to have, know or think. As Wanumba points out, this is largely achieved through dis-education. The Chi-Coms and Mao would be so proud.

    The Obama Plan – Part Two

    [“Even if it means the threat of race riots. They are willing to go that far
    – go down that road if need be. If the Obama team can’t guilt enough
    of White America into voting for them in 2012 – they are just fine with
    trying to scare the sh-t out of them to do it.”

    ” ‘We want to give him every opportunity….’ ”

    Why, because he’s black? That’s racist.

    Talk about the soft tyranny of low expectations….

    I guess all that Hopium didn’t include more Cargo there, eh dude?

    I am so-o-o-o-o sick and tired of the Cargo Culters of America Society picking my pocket to buy votes from coke sniffing porch monkies and fourth generation single mothers with a herd of feral children.

    After passing a gargantuan stimulus plan that was supposed to fix the economy, the unemployment rate continued to rise — until it only recently began falling. Although we are currently at an 8.7 percent unemployment rate, the rate in the black community is at an unpardonably enormous 16.1 percent — the highest of any ethnic group in the country. It is also important to note that black unemployment was lower under Bush than it has been at any point during Obama’s administration. In point of fact, black unemployment was even lower under Bush than it was under Clinton.
    […]
    My argument is, however, that Obama has failed to enact the economic policies that would provide the necessary environment for blacks to fend for themselves independent of government — despite the fact that he presented himself during his campaign as someone who was inimitably skilled and uniquely well-positioned to do so.

    Without attempting to cater to blacks specifically, President Reagan managed to create economic prosperity throughout the entire country which, in point of fact, benefited blacks more than it did whites. The facts cannot be disputed: Reaganomics had a salubrious effect on the black community, whereas Obamanomics is having an unequivocally deleterious effect on black economics and the black community at large.

    What exactly has Obama done for the benefit of African-Americans? High unemployment and now Obama has given amnesty to 300,000 illegals to compete for the few jobs out there. There are more Hispanics than African-Americans in the US and Obama and the Democrats are catering to their wishes. African-Americans have been badly hurt by illegal immigration and a few are beginning to say something about it.

    Interesting article, though a few years old:

    Valerie, you’re another GP inspiration for buying stock in Reynold’s aluminum foil.

    I’m the only one being slandered but, like true leftists, you and several others are doing the attacking and turning at the same time to accuse me. Alinsky 101.

    It would ne giving you the benefit of the doubt to state you’re merely a case of gross ignorance….or, hopefully, just have a reading comprehension gap.
