Bears Coach Lovie Smith: Blacks Should Overlook Unemployment and Show Up Strong for Obama

What's Going On

Lovie Smith, head coach of the Chicago Bears said that he understands the frustrations that many African Americans have with the Obama Administration.   But the coach has called on the black community to  “be patient and look into the future,” and support President Obama as a black man.

“Our future’s looking bright, because I trust the man who’s leading us. And that man is Barack Obama,” said Smith. “I have the president’s back, and it’s up to us as African-Americans to show that we have his back also.”

According to a recent ABC News -Washington Post poll, ninety-six percent of African American voters approve of the way the president is handling his job.  Three percent do not.   Recent unemployment data has shown that black unemployment is still at a starting 14.1 percent, worsening under the Obama Administration.  White unemployment has improved under President Obama.

  1. Lovie respectfully who do you speak for ? The haves or have nots .

  2. Seriously Lovie, you should stick to coaching the Bears. Your political opinion leaves something to be desired. For the first time in history the total black vote exceeded 15% because Obama ran for office. Do you see where that got us??
