Seems like you forgot that he’d did as much as he could in two years because the remaining six years the GOP blacked everything. Mitch McConnell said the quiet part out loud when he said he was not going to bring any of Obama’s agenda to a vote in the Senate. So, you want blame someone, blame Mitch! I think there is also a little brainwashing here. The first sentiments that Obama wasn’t working on Black people’s issues came from the GOP first in 2009 in hopes it would change how Black people voted in the 2010 midterms and the 2012 general election.

I mean, we had disproportionately more people in our community walking around without access to preventative health care. Do you know the millions of Black people the ACA helped? Do you really care? It seems your problem is systemic white supremacy, not Obama. But it is easier to blame one Black man for the things we should be fighting for collectively and or began as Republican propaganda. This is the same thing MLK faced by his own when he wanted to tackle economic racism and oppose the Vietnam war.
