Has Obama lost the inner city?

I suspect this is a bump, not a groundswell, but it’s amazing nevertheless:  inner city blacks say that overwhelming government interference in the economy stifles the kind of economic growth their communities need:

It is worth keeping in mind that, at the end of the day, the only color that ever really matters is green — and that’s not environmental green, it’s dollar bill green.  Once people understand how to make the important green grow, they will follow the money.

    It doesn’t surprise me at all – rather I am surprised that this is the first real example.  I served in the infantry with 20 to 25% blacks.  They were my soldiers, my NCO’s, my fellow officers and my superiors.  The only difference between the black soldiers and the rest was the blacks had a bit better natural camoflauge at night.  

    What surprised the hell out of me was when I left the army and was introduced, for the first time, to the race hustler industry.  What has surprised me since is how many blacks have accepted the bile that industry sells them, seemingly uncritically.  There simply cannot be that great a divide between blacks in and out of service.

    So what I see above is what should be the norm.  Obama and the left are destroying America, but they are utterly devastating blacks.  The question is, how many blacks will it take waking up to reality before what we see in the video above becomes the norm, not the rare anomaly.  I really think, as Thomas Sowell suggested, that the time is past ripe for the right to make a play for black support.

    Since when did inner city blacks think they had the right to question and demand economic independence from their Leftist sugar daddies? That’s not how a plantation slave acts, and that’s not how they are expected to act by the Left. They’ll be punished for such arrogance sooner or later.

    There’s a reason why I told a couple of people that America needed counter-insurgency operations in American cities more than we needed it in Iraq’s Sunni triangle.

     They’re not taking you for granted. They’re acting the way slave masters have always acted. Until people “get this”, until people understand America is currently run by ruthless and evil slave masters… you ain’t going to get “any salvation”.

     No need for them to worry.
    According to Stanley Kurtz, Spreading the Wealth: How Obama is Robbing the Suburbs to Pay for the Cities,
    the left is setting up for taxing the suburbs to finance the inner cities.
