USA Africa Dialogue Series - Jonathan Capehart: Obama can’t win with some black critics

"Here we go again. President Obama's critics in the African American community are hammering him for doing nothing for black people. Drawing my attention this time is "How the Obama Administration Talks to Black America"by Ta-Nehisi Coates of the Atlantic and"A President for Everyone, except Black People" by the Rev. Kevin Johnson that appeared last month in the Philadelphia Tribune. While I understand where they are coming from, this thinking drives me crazy because the president's detractors fail to take a 360-degree view of what they are demanding from him and ignore what he's actually done."|

For the record, I identify completely with Ta-Nehisi Coates. Mr. Obama has disappointed me with his (non)engagement with black folks and Africa. In that sense President Bush was a better leader.
