Maria Wimberly, 39
Miami Gardens, administrator
Yes and despite the challenges he inherited that were caused by the previous administration he’s created jobs not only for Blacks but all Americans — even those who don’t support him.
Tony Larkin, 30
Miami Gardens, teacher
The President has shown many times that he is the perfect leader for the U.S. He’s lived up to his promises the very best he could.
Johnny Smith, 45
Overtown, business owner
Obama has done some things for Blacks but there’s a lot more work that still needs to be done. I don’t want to hear him talk about it — he needs to be about it.
Dr. Mae Christian, 67
President Obama had some tough problems facing him that Bush left behind. With Congress and Florida’s legislature being majority Republican a lot of the programs that he developed that would have helped Blacks were diluted.
Steve Witherspoon, 45
Yes, he helped promote job growth and gave many people the opportunity to serve in government positions. He’s the first Black leader since King and Malcolm X to increase jobs for Black and to advocate world peace.
Ariel Whatley, 22
Liberty City, student
Yes, he’s the president for the middle class and Blacks. He’s helped with health care, created jobs as much as Republicans have let him and he’s doubled Pell Grant aid for college students. He’s been a great president for Blacks.
