AFRICAN-AMERICANS ECONOMY IS WORSE OFF - ROMNEY
Icheoku says except that President Barack Obama did not cause it. It has been the same and have always remained the same ever Mitt Romney's forebears brought unwilling Africans in chains to this shores. Regrettably too, all attempts at equalizing and/or leveling the playing field to create enabling environment for a serious headway has been rebuffed by Mitt Romney's people. Effort at reparation has also been resisted by the good ole white boys who would not hear none of that. Even the present government of President Barack Obama honest attempt to cushion their hardship has been branded by Mitt Romney's people as redistribution and socialist? Any and every attempt at redressing this age-long, purposely maintained, economic-vice hold on African-Americans by Mitt Romney's people have been rejected in order to help keep them in their place.
Yes, you read Icheoku right and we make bold to restate that economic disequilibrium in America was engineered and maintained by Mitt Romney's skin-color type and no one, not in minority Americans communities or the the NAACP convention, should listen to this holier than thou fellow from Massachusetts trying to patronize them with his bamboozling speech. Icheoku asks would Mitt Romney release his Bain Capital records on how many African-Americans his company employed or helped get a loan of any sort while running it? Would Mitt Romney tell Americans why the United States Senate is an all white club with no minority or an African American therein serving as a senator? Would Mitt Romney tell Americans how many African-American CEO there is in Wall Street? Would Mitt Romney tell Americans how many African-Americans there is anywhere that creates jobs or hire workers and would Mitt Romney tell Americans why African-Americans are last to be hired and first to be fired in American work-places? Would Mitt Romney tell Americans why the dissipate application of justice against African-American males which sees them being recycled through the prison system thus making them unable to play any major or supportive role in the economic system especially of their families.
We need to know what the Mitt's plan is towards redressing these stacked up roadblocks and not to rehash the obvious. All these economic dislocations of the African-American community did not start under or with Barack Obama's presidency; no, it is an unspoken and subsisting economic-slavery, engineered to keep them down and under control. Therefore Icheoku says to Mitt Romney, to please keep his patronizing observation to himself and that NAACP does not need him to tell them what they have been forced to live with all these centuries since slavery. If Mitt must open his mouth in that direction, to please say if he will among many other palliative measures to be articulated and put in place to help African-Americans economic well-being, support the payment of reparation to the people who have been shortchanged ever since they were forcibly brought to America by Mitt Romney's people in shackles. That is what NAACP wants to hear from the Mormon Bishop and that is what Icheoku would like to also hear as any and every other thing is a cheap-talk patronage which African-Americans can use less of.
