Jerome Hudson on the NAACP convention: “Romney Got Booed But Blacks Are Getting Screwed.” More:
How did Barack Obama show love to his most ardent supporters? Before he sent Joe Biden to address the NAACP, his campaign released a 5 five-page report in response to Romney’s speech.
The Report is titled, Mitt Romney: The Wrong Choice For African Americans.
It basically argues that if black Americans support Mitt Romney’s agenda, they will see unemployment numbers nearly twice the national average for his entire presidency and that black youth unemployment will hover around 30 to 40 percent. Black families will see their median net worth cut in half and a majority of young black children would have to rely on food stamps to eat. The memo warns that in President Romney’s hometown, crime and murder rates will skyrocket and blacks will account for nearly 78 percent of the homicide victims.
Oh, crap! That is Barack Obama’s record in the black community: A social-economic wrecking ball slamming through the neighborhood.
I’ve never linked to Jerome before I don’t think — but I have had drinks with him. Will try to do more of both in the future.
