‘Just Quit’: Group of Black Political Activists in Chicago Savage Obama’s State of the Union

After watching President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Address on Tuesday night, a group of African-Americans were asked for their thoughts on the speech. Their reactions were not favorable toward the president. Most said they believed that their conditions had not greatly improved over the course of his presidency with one of the interviewees even saying that Obama should resign.

According to J.R. Flemming, a member of Chicago’s anti-eviction campaign, the speech was the “same old, same old” and “a bunch of talk and rhetoric to give favor to a dying economy in America.”

“And the reason why our economy is dying is the president’s approach is always to place blame,” he continued. “It’s not the 1 percent problem, it’s not the 99 percent problem, it’s an American problem. And the problem is patronage, nepotism and cronyism.”

Obama has been “more hurtful to the black race than he has been helpful,” added Voices of Ex-Offenders (V.O.T.E.) founder Joe Watkins. “But those of us at the bottom of the ladder don’t accept that.”

“Just quit,” Mark Carter added, “because if this is what you call helping us, then just stop helping us.”
