Black History Month – Conservative Views of the First Black U.S. President

Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence. – Albert Einstein

demonize obama
Not a Liberal AND Obama is a GREAT MAN with the POWER to accomplish all the above…wHILE CONGRESS POUTS.
In any event, Congress has no BALLS.
Jealousy is a bitch
When elected officials hold the American people hostage because of their selfish needs–like you did TED CRUZ–those officials should be FIRED; definitely, never to be re-elected–TED CRUZ should be FIRED.
rand paul
What a bunch of crock! Aren’t you part of government Senator Rand Paul?
fox news
Fox–YOU are the problem–creators of crap.
myths proganda
Propaganda brought to you by FOX Rumors (news?) where myths are propagated and nurtured. Fox news working hard to make THINKING obsolete
I want a tape is handy.
I want a pair…duck tape is handy.
Very Nice…. Now Welcome to the future…
comparison of obama to paula deen
Paula Deen was fired for being an IDIOT…not so much a racist. Prez Obama is no idiot like Paula or Sarah.
Please keep my country safe From ignorance, hatrred and intolerance.
This great country started as a haven for ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS, criminals, etc. Give immigrants a viable path to citizenship.
make fun of obama
NO, it was not a mistake. Re-electing President Obama brought HOPE to America’s Future.
Silly Conservatives...He brought our troops home to save American lives and  protect our own borders.
Silly Conservatives…President Obama brought our troops home to save American lives and protect our own U.S. borders.
Conservatives, please exercise critical thinking–your party is dumbed down and will LOSE big time unless you take a page out President Obama’s successful campaigns.


obama the demon
Who is we? KOCH brothers…You do not speak for ME.
obama to resign
Misery likes company… I thought you a religious man…no playmates for YOU.
Really?  Which history book?
Really? I love fictions…which novel is this?
social programs
I agree…Power never takes a back step – only in the face of more power..
Too MANY Social Programs without any demonstrated benefit.
bible thumper
Absolutely NOT! Hell is crowded with too many god-fearing/loving, church-going, bible thumpers.
teaparty demand
Here is all I want: Cut the strings and set the puppets free from their puppeteers.
make fun of poor
What pay CEO $6 million plus $ 2 million bonus for declining revenues; fire him with a golden parachute of $10 million. We are McDummies!


impeach proganda
Example of desperation and FEAR by adversaries. President Obama–you are doing a magnificent job because so many conservatives HATE you. If you are not hated you are not making CHANGES and America needs to CHANGE!
insult obama
Good, that means President Obama comes to us with the wisdom of DIVERSE perspectives

Where do we stand as far as race?

Just not YOUR principles Mr DeMint.

Author: Angela Grant

I am a first generation Jamaican immigrant whose experiences and accomplishments were made possible by the courage, sacrifices and the heroic acts of many whose bodies have rotted away in unmarked graves. Those are my heroes. Their sacrifices and death paved the way for my children and I. Failure to Listen is a token of my eternal gratitude. Failure to Listen is a tribute those generations of unmarked graves occupied by people of all races whose ultimate sacrifice of life opened the door for me and others, THANK YOU. Failure to Listen uses cultural lenses to appreciate and understand the relationships between current events and our values, beliefs and attitudes. Culture is everything without it we are nothing. Failure to Listen will take you on a journey to recognize the beauty of our differences as the seeds to creativity, innovation and resolving disparities. By sharing my personal and professional experiences, I hope to do justice to the perspectives of those who are rarely heard or listened to. This site is not to incite anger but rather to provoke thought. It is my hope that Failure to Listen will work to foster intergroup dialogues and motivate readers to step outside the box and get to know ALL PEOPLE. In the spirit of Martin Luther King, let's join hands and remember his famous speech about a dream... A small group of thoughtful people could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. -Margaret Mead
