If you want to talk to black women appear on the cover of Essence magazine. Magazine articles give you the opportunity to talk to millions of people without going anywhere. It requires minimal effort but has the potential to yield significant results, but is this enough? We know this is not all the president will do but what will black people get for their undying, unflinching support of this president? In 2008 when the president ran for office the refrain was he is president to everyone so he can not truly get too involved with issues that affect the black community, but this president has freely addressed issues that affect the gay community. He promised them he would eliminate ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ and he did. He recently came out and supported gay marriage. Why is he freely addressing the issues of one group and looking the other way at the problems of others? Money talks and while he embraces the causes of the gay community they have started writing checks to support his reelection efforts. Is that what blacks need to do to get on his agenda?
