Barack is bad for black people

I'm waiting for someone to ask Obama why he defends the number one cause of death among African-Americans. Here's the sad truth:

It's never been a more dangerous time to be a black baby. While overall rates of abortion have declined to the lowest level since 1974, the Guttmacher Institute recently reported alarming increases in racial disparities between the rates of abortion for black and white women. Analyzing more than 30 years of data collected directly from abortion providers, Guttmacher found that black women's abortion rates are now five times greater than those of white women.

...For the Reverend Johnny Hunter, leader of the organization Blacks for Life, ''abortion is racism in its ugliest form.'' At one time, other black leaders agreed. Take just one example. Back before all Democrats running for national office were required to hold a pro-choice position, Jesse Jackson argued that the privacy argument used to justify the Roe decision was--as he put it--''the premise of slavery.'' Relating the right to abortion to the right to keep slaves, Jackson noted that ''one could not protest the existence or treatment of slaves on the plantation because that was private and therefore outside of your right to be concerned.'' But Jackson abandoned that position long ago--when he realized that a pro-life position was a liability in the Democratic Party.
