Has president Obama made a difference for Blacks since becoming president? Angela Simmons, 46 Unemployed, Liberty City Yes, because he has done a lot to change things for us. He has helped with the job situation in America. I know a lot of people feel that the job situation hasnt changed but things have changed a little. So, he has done some work. Amos Lattimore, 58 Retired, Liberty City He has made a significant improvement in the job market, that was extremely helpful to people in the Black community. Diane Green, 56 Retired, Liberty City I think that he has had a positive impact on all communities, not just the Black community. He has made government work for every community. James Marshall, 72 Retired, Liberty City He made a difference for Blacks by just being elected president. When I was young I never thought that we could have a Black president, now we do. Crystal Ruffin, 35 Unemployed, Miami I dont think that he has made any change in the Black community since he has been in office, nothing. Nothing in the Black community has changed; nothing in the world has changed. All I see is him on vacation all the time. Karen Johnson, 70 Retired, Coral Park He has made a positive difference in the Black community because of what he is trying to do. I think that he is just being blocked by the opposite party. He really has tried to make sure that the tax situation works for everybody. [polldaddy poll=5834990]
