I wonder why we spend these nights together
Is this the room I'll live my life forever
I wonder why in LA
To live and die in LA
I wonder why we waste our lives here
When we could run away to paradise
But I am held in some invisible vice
And I can't get away
To live and die in LA
- Wang Chung, "To Live and Die in LA"
So we know that the United States government spends $500 million to diversify the medical field (primarily to get more blacks as doctors); the Obama Administration awarded $227.9 million to Historical Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) in 2012; and $4.4 billion Pigford case (signed into law by Obama in 2010) was nothing more than a racial shakedown.
|Mel Watt, Obama's nominee to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency, believes 'majority of whites shouldn't be part of the democratic process'|
Well... we now know Mr. Obama has decided to nominate Mel Watt to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) - overseeing Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, which can't be shut down because it would adversely impact black people [Winding down Fannie and Freddie could put minority careers at risk, Washington Post, 2-21-11] - and his views on race fit nicely in line with those of Attorney General Eric Holder.
He believes white people shouldn't be part of the 'democratic process'[Obama housing nominee: Most white people won’t vote for black candidate, should be excluded from ‘democratic process’, Daily Caller, 5-1-13]:
President Obama’s pick to head the Federal Housing Finance Agency once said that a “majority of white voters” would never vote for a black candidate and that they should be excluded from “the democratic process.”
The White House announced Wednesday that Obama will nominate Democratic North Carolina Congressman Mel Watt to take over the FHFA, which regulates Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the country’s government sponsored mortgage companies.
Watt, the former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, has in the past accused white Americans of racism.
“There would be a substantial majority of white voters who would say that under no circumstances would they vote for an African American candidate,” Watt said Oct. 14, 2005 during a Washington hearing held by the National Commission on the Voting Rights Act.
The Voting Rights Act should be expanded to “adjust districts to take [racially motivated voting] into account,” Watts said.
Such voters “need to be factored out of the equation,” Watt said, because “I’ve got no use for them in the democratic process.”
According to a contemporaneous report of the hearing published by the Cybercast News Service, Watt said that black voters — unlike whites — don’t have “an absolute commitment” to voting for a candidate based on race.
“Black people have not had the luxury of being able to say, ‘Under no circumstances will I vote for a white candidate,’” Watt said in his remarks.
Obama would win 43 percent of the white vote in 2008 — the largest share for any Democrat in a two-man race since 1976 — along with 95 percent of the black vote.
