Stunning Admission: NAACP Leader Says Blacks Are “Doing Far Worse” Under Obama (Video)

Wow. NAACP leader Ben Jealous actually admitted that blacks are “doing far worse” under Obama.
It was a rare moment of honesty for the far left hack.
Jealous made the comments on Meet the Press this past Sunday:

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

And yet 93% of blacks voted for Barack Obama.

Your Black World reported:

In a recent interview on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press,” NAACP CEO and president, Ben Jealous, told the show’s host that black Americans “are doing far worse” than when President Obama first took office. “The country’s back to pretty much where it was when this president started,” Jealous told show host David Gregory. “White people in this country are doing a bit better. Black people are doing far worse.”

The Labor Department reports that the black unemployment rate was at 12.7 percent when Pres. Obama initially took office. As the employment rate for the nation dropped below 8 percent, black unemployment increased to 12.9 percent and then to 14 percent for December.

    But then in another day they say horrible things about the Republicans, Conservatives and Tea Party.

    Blacks seem to have had a foot on them by handing out food stamps and welfare checks like candy. Democrats keep saying especially Pelosi this is growth, our economy is best win jobless keep get their checks.

    Here is something a republican senator from Tennessee suggests and I am so in favor of it.


    Tough news for Tennessee parents on welfare: Republican state Sen. Stacey Campfield introduced legislation last week that would slash welfare benefits for parents whose kids get crummy grades, Fox News reports. Critics call it an unfair proposal that will ultimately hurt children, but Campfield says the bill will inspire parents to do a better job. “We’re not asking children to re-write the Magna Carta,” he said. “A D-minus gets you through.”

    But Senate Democratic Leader Jim Kyle says a grades-for-welfare plan would “stack the deck against at-risk children,” pressuring them to study “when there is no food on the dinner table.” The state already cuts benefits by 20% for parents whose kids don’t go to school; Campfield’s bill would raise that to 30%. Campfield said his proposal would “break the cycle of poverty,” but a state youth official tells the Knoxville News Sentinel that a single mom with two kids receives just $185 a month, and “that’s already low.”

    Our nation has many programs for parents, teachers and kids, but many have failed, now is the time to cut them and start working the real problem…..LAZY ARSE PARENTS.

    So, for you Pelosi and the NAACP try and get your act together and take a look at what real work can be done for blacks, white and all colors. Time to hit the lackies in the pocket.

    It is called scared straight. get you kid in school. Maybe then the Blacks wouldn’t have so much trouble. Enough of the talk start walking the walk.

  • Hadrian Rises

    If obama were white they’d have run him out of office for being hostile to blacks. The joke is on them. Well its on all of us, but the schadenfreude is sweet.

  • Texas_Treeroach

    Well, I’ve got some news for you BEN –
    Your boy in the WH isn’t finished yet.

    He will do in four more years what his Party has been trying to do for fifty: The complete subjugation and neutering of the Black America.

    But you’ve got to hand it to them, BEN: They have made YOU think THEY are on your side, so you’ll keep voting them into office.

    Some joke, huh?

    btw, many people of every color are far worse since Obama.

    After the unions have stolen everything that’s not nailed down,
    After “special interest groups” have extorted everything in the bottomless well of $$$
    When the entitlements have crash thru the ceiling

    Who does Ben think, will be the first group to get cut loose

    Look Ben,there’s a squirrell skiing on youtube,don’t look over hear

    We are all doing worse under Obama, but of course women and children suffer most.

  • having the country do worse was obama’s plan from the start. yet the NAACP still supported him. it not going to get any better, especially if you work.

  • jony101

    93 percent voted for obama? thats an understatement, more like 98 percent. Why work when obama gives you everything for free including free cellphone, only a fool would work.

  • Objective Analysis

    Okay so now NAACP President Ben Jealous is NOW sounding the alarm. Really, now you are concerned about the economic policies of the Obama Administration and the impact for blacks and other Americans?

    I am through. These far left wing policies are hurting every American and especially black ones the hardest. It is creating only rich and poor and no middle class. You just can’t tax everyone and expect to turn blood out of an empty turnip. Tax is a cost and any business or employer will minimize costs by avoiding taxes and cutting jobs to avoid the tax. It is not racist/sexist, it is basic essence of survival (Darwinism).

    We saw the crap with President Carter in the 1970’s. Now this crap. I am through.

Failing to make your self useful with marketable skills , Failing to opening businesses….. ….Failing to GROW UP…and BE REAL MEN AND WOMEN WHO CAN BE PROUD OF THEMSELVES…… to quit playing the BLAME GAME and screaming RACISSSSS every time somebody refuses to owe you a living.

    They voted for him. Maybe he will help them dumpster dive for food.

  • Economan

    I think a great hint to the Black community years ago would have been that Obama approves of more abortion clinics in Black neighborhoods. IOW, he doesn’t care about them, just cares about their votes because it’s all about him.

  • FurryGuy

    Gee, he admits the truth AFTER the election, when there is not a lot that can be done to rectify the situation except by impeachment.

    He’s sure the answer lies in more quotas and handouts

    In their defense: Blacks are doing far better lately with regard to flash-robberies, anti-nonblack flash-beatings and killings, and flash-mayhem than they were just five years ago.

  • Roare

    “And yet 93% of blacks voted for Barack Obama.”

    Of course they did. They are the most racist people around.

  • Crazy

    Someone is playing with videos. All important videos that tell the real story, show the truth and are on the opposing sides, views, are always going down, interrupted and disappear from the articles. You can never view any of them in full content or uninterrupted. Not only here but on you tube and every site. They have put the fix in to control what it is you the people view. If it is a video that moves their cause, pumps up their agenda and gives their cause more meaning then any video will have the luxury to play fully. I am just disgusted that all we watch, read are now being sensored.

    Powell has taken much critism these past weeks with his breathless, runaway rants that he has always been a Repub, and only since the Rebubs have shifted so far right and refuse to change with the climate and ground swell of minorities that he has abandoned their base and now voted for Obama these last two election cycles. Well golly gee if that is the craziest untruth i heard so far today.He has forgotten that all the lefts policies inflated their unemployment, welfare, public housing, food stamps and every other government assistance there is. He has refused to acknowledge the statistics that we are 16 trillion in debt, our GDP is out of reach, our social security is beyond bankrupt, the debt ceiling that his new found party wants to be unlimited, none ceiling, gravy train on, our credit rating has been down graded twice, never before in our history, our military is being defunded and their benefits are being cut so much that they will have to pay for more out of their own pockets after placing their lives on the front lines for their country and their people. Now let me believe that you, Mr Powell, really voted, cast your ballot for the Democraps, because the Repubs have and have shifted so far off course and are ruining this nation. You sir, lie, and you are a colored voter. You vote by color, of ones skin not by their policy and their track record. You do not give a dam what this man has done to this country, its people, what ever color they are are, black, white, yellow, orange, it matters none, you picked your color of choice and you stuck with it. You feared what would happen to you, the press, the names and far worse if you stepped outside your colored vote. You fered the Uncle Tom label, and what that would bring to you, the harm. You care not what your race is suffering, if you did you never would have voted for this man again based of the statistics he held. You cared about your label if you did not vote for him, you cared about your bank acct, and what you were being paid and losing it if you did not stay with your colored base vote. You call yourself an American ? One must second guess that when you blatantly ignor your people’s suffering for your own gain.

  • J

    Does anyone else find it ironic that the NAACP CEO is named Jealous? I mean an organization that basically is designed with the sole purpose of saying that a specific group of people aren’t treated the same as another group and therefore should be advanced. I just think that is hilarious.

  • feduptoo

    Always race! A lot of people are in bad shape, Hispanics are doing “a bit better” than blacks. yet he doesn’t say this!

    I would think he would be outraged that O wants to keep every illegal here, plus keep bringing in more and more Visa workers!

  • CommieJuice

    I can’t think of anyone who deserves it more. You vote on race because 98% of you are racist, you get what you deserve and hopefully more to come.

  • sam

    Doesn’t matter, still got their votes.

  • Wayne

    He may have admitted that blacks are doing worse but I’m sure he still believes that it is all the ‘evil’ Republicans fault.

  • LedoftheLord

    As a Black man who hasn’t voted for the Democrats Since Clinton’s 1st term, I am quite aware the problems that the Blacks are facing now. My mission has been, and will continue to be, sounding the alarm for the End Times… According to the Bible this world will end. By voting in McCain or Romney (of whom I voted for), again, will only delay the inevitable.

    Racism is blinders that further the function of the “divide and conquer” tactic. It does not matter who is the perpetrator of the Racism, the endgame is still the same. Sure the “93%” were foolish and most will have to pay the consequence of that action along with us who have not asked for this particular Administration. But, because of Shadow Gov’ts that run the show, we all logically have to ask ourselves who is the beneficiary (Globally Speaking) of a weakened USA. This is the question we all must endeavor to find out. Who are the Global Elite? An energy deficient and depleted USA; who stands to gain?

    All can turn to a people and blame them for something that has been planned for probably over 50-75 years. Some Blacks have awakened out of the “Matrix” only to see non-blacks still plugged in to the “Matrix” mad at Blacks. If you are truly unplugged from this mind controll mayhem, then you must be able to see that there is a plan that continues to force the divide….segregation.

    White persons, percent definition and source info White persons, percent, 2011 (a) 78.1%
    Black persons, percent definition and source info Black persons, percent, 2011 (a) 13.1%

    Please be aware that a group of people making up 13% of the total population is not enough to elect. Even if it were just 51% to elect Mr O, it took 3 times as many of other races to vote Mr O into… 2 times in a row!

    Statistics can be a powerful eye opener when hatred is removed from the equation…

    May the Lord Jesus Christ Bless Us All.. God Bless ALL America!

    When Jesus(God) is removed from conversation, hatred surfaces and the goal will never be realized by the masses. Jesus was never afraid of the masses, He was just frustrated by the fakers….those that professed a love for God, but HATRED was their true God….
