Another Obama Success Story: Blacks Feel Less Empowered Under Obama Than They Once Did

Maybe they should vote 98% for Obama and see if things work out better the next time. Then again they could vote for Mitt Romney and actually find employment.

The choice is theirs.

Four years after Barack Obama was elected president, this is not exactly a “post-racial” America.

A new study from Washington University in St. Louis finds that under Obama, many black Americans feel less free than whites when it comes to political participation.

From 2005 to 2011, only 45 percent of blacks said they believed the government would allow them to make a public speech, while 67 percent of whites believed they could, the study found.

The study found that while the election of Obama initially boosted feelings of political empowerment among black Americans, those sentiments significantly faded in the years that followed—especially among conservative and religious blacks.

These two groups make up a large segment of the black population, with 56 percent of blacks identifying as “born again,” and 39 percent of blacks as “somewhat conservative,” according to the study.

Perhaps conservative blacks would also feel better if they weren’t subject to such relentless hostility from the perpetually angry left.
