20 Things The ‘Hood Expects Of President Obama

President Obama

Last month, I was a participant on a number of panels by The League of Young Voters, a conglomerate of some of most intelligent, grounded, and talented group of people I’ve come to know. However, whenever the topic of Obama came up sh*t got a little heated and everyone had the Rock’s eyebrow. Now granted, from a statistical standpoint most of these panelists were more equipped than I was. Still, when it came to the numbers I fell back. When the topic of Obama’s obligation to the Black and Latino community bent the corner, I had plenty to say, because now they were firmly planted on my block.

See, quite a few of us feel that President Obama is not obligated to do anything specifically for the Black and Latino community. I’ve heard, “He is not just the President of BLACK people, he is the president of all people,” or “Obama doesn’t control local politics.” And there is my all-time favorite: “So what you gonna do? Vote for Romney?” Yes, these are true statements – well, not the Romney bullsh*t. I would slap box with a bear before voting for Romney, but I do expect some things from my President, especially if he is a P.O.C. (President of Color)
