    "Promoting Entrepreneurship as a Path to Success:...The SBA has increased outreach to the African American community with the launch of the Business Smart Toolkit......."


    Words like promote or outreach don't phase me, and are 🤬 initiatives. He could've done more using SBA. I wanted to see vast increases in SBA 7a,8a loans and government contracts for black businesses. He could've used the executive to get more black vendors. But business is his blind spot.

    Take Clinton for all his warts:

    "Two and a Half Times More Small Business Loans to African American Entrepreneurs. Between 1993 and 1997 the Small Business Administration (SBA) approved more than 9,000 loans to African American entrepreneurs under the 7(a) and 504 loan programs. In 1997 alone, the Small Business Administration granted 1,900 loans, worth $286 million, to African American small business owners, two and a half times the number of loans granted in 1992.

    Supporting Minority Business Communities and Increasing Access to Capital. Building on the efforts of the SBA, Vice President Gore unveiled aggressive plans to increase lending and business services to the African American and Hispanic business communities nationwide. The SBA has set a goal of providing an estimated total of $1.86 billion in loans to African American small businesses over a three-year period. In addition, the Vice President announced an unprecedented agreement between SBA and the "Big Three" U.S. automakers to increase subcontracting awards to minority businesses by nearly $3 billion over the next three years -- a 50 percent increase over current levels."

    What does letting criminals out of prison do for law abiding blacks who are harassed, discriminated against or killed by police? Besides this is not specific to blacks and neither are the other ideas. [email protected] acting like this 🤬 has a "coloreds only" clause in them.

    Does this represent less access to those loans? Or is the access still the same but the utilization has declined?

    Dope question.

    Same access - less utilization. Banks are lending less, requiring more collateral, even with SBA approval. BUT SBA approved loans sell on secondary markets at a higher premium than regular loans because they are backed by government. Why not have the SBA give the banks an incentive where they'd buy the loans (then securitize it in the market) and the banks would service and underwrite the loans. Exert your influence.

    I mean open the latest edition of Black Entreprise and you'll see all sorts of businesses (salons, mechanics, auto delearships, black banks) starving for capital.

    Why not pull strings for DOD to advertise with some black businesses?

    I ain't impressed.

    It's like black people are his "side-🤬 ", and LGBT's are his girlfriend, & Illegal immigrants are his Wifey.

    He takes us to the local take-out joint, on the late night, and takes those other groups to the best 5-star spot on some red carpet treatment.

    Clinton infamously was on some no 🤬 given 🤬 with pardons on his last day. Pardoned convicted terrorists and people who didn't snitch on him lol.

    Accepting a pardon is an admission of guilt according to Burdick v. United States, so Assata Shakur wouldn't want it anyway.

    Leonard Peltier was a Native American activist who was railroaded in a unfair trial for shooting Federalis, his name's been floated.

    Snowden is a real possibility imho i think he's played his cards well enough to make it easy for Obama

    Yeah he pardoned Patty Hearst too, lmao.

    Y'all see LBJ though?

    A powerful black man can't overtly help another black man without being labeled anti white, terrorist, extremist etc.

    🤬 em quietly. Asians, Arabs and Indians have been doing it for years.

    Obama has basically set it so no person of color has an excuse why they can't succeed and he's done it without getting assassinated or pigeonholed into some black activist or racist by whites.

    Instead of giving handouts like his democratic predecessors, he provided actual opportunities.

    You can knock the man but you can't knock his contributions.

    You fell for the banana in the tailpipe. Don't you know for years white people have always selected a particular 🤬 to use as a prop to show that "see there is no racism" "You can do it do too" but yet things haven't changed for us?
