“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey
Something is going on that I am really tired of readers. It has got way out of hand in my opinion. It is going on with two people I used to respect. I said used to.
They are tv/radio host/author Tavis Smily and Prof. Cornell West and these two have been on a flat out mission against President Obama since he walked in the White House four years ago. The question is why? Well in my opinion the reason is they are flat out JEALOUS. Well let me say this. Tavis is jealous and also upset. Why you ask?
You see Tavis has had panels geared towards issues happening in the African American community to our families and also cities. He has invited the President to be on panels before he became President and the President never shown up to none of them. So this has made Tavis and his good friend Prof. West upset.
So Tavis has got busy and have put out a series of books putting the President on blast. These brothas think and say that the President does not do enough or speak out about things that are going on in the African American community. The first black President should do more for “his people”
West and Smily have went on nationwide tours over the last few years and have gone on many TV and radio shows putting down President Obama. I think they are WRONG! Flat out wrong. They need to chill out in my opinion and realize that President Obama is the President of all America. Not just African Americans.
Tavis and West want the President to have a major press conference on poverty in America and then set up a panel to work on this issue. They want this to happen asap.
What Smiley and West need to realize that the President has a lot on his plate. He does not have to lower himself to demands by Tavis and West and others who are just HATERS against the President and yes…..JEALOUS.
JEALOUS of a black man who was a community worker in Chicago and now is in his second term as our President. West has said some very nasty things about President Obama. Nasty as hell. In my opinion he can have his opinion but he needs to realize again the President Obama cannot just do things for the black community. He cannot.
So in ending, Tavis Smily and Prof. Cornell West need to back off the President and let him be the President. Just because he has not shown up at Smiley’s panels is not reason to put the President on blast. Oh yeah another thing they are upset about is this.
Guys like Rev. Al Sharpton and other African American leaders have a “open door” to the White House and to the President. Rev. Sharpton has had the President on his radio show many times and is invited to meeting at the White House. BUT Smiley and West ARE NOT invited. So as a result, Smiley writes books and tours the country with West putting down the President. It is wrong and they need to stop hatin on the Prez right now!!

ARTICLE FROM community.essence.com (Full story click here)
I hope you readers read the above article about why African American businesses or do not do well compared to white, Asian, Hispanics and now East African owned businesses.
There is a reason for this folks. As a black owned business here in Seattle for more than twenty years, sorry to say my worst “enemies” have been black folks. No support from local promoters, no support from hip-hop/r&b artists, and no support from black owned businesses. BUT these same folks will in a hurry take their cash to the “majority” owned businesses.
“Music Inner City News Magazine” is in the TOP 500,000 IN THE WORLD in website traffic and getting better everyday. Keep in mind there are at least 20 to 30 million registered websites in the world. Plus we are in the top 100,000 in the U.S. These stats are from www.alexa.com (type in sportsinnercity.com in the search area)
And “Music Inner City TV” is getting PLENTY of traffic everyday. And we are the ONLY locally produced urban program on Comcast/Xfinity On Demand here in Washington state. But black folks here will give me EVERY EXCUSE under the sun NOT to advertise with us. Then if I say something about this issue I am “whining”. This is crazy!!
As one of the articles I saw this morning said on this topic said “It seems a lot of black people are racist towards each other MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY as well as FINANCIALLY”
And “When black folks work on the racism towards black owned businesses it is then we will see black businesses prosper”
Also readers, Hispanics-advertise, Chinese/Asians-advertise, East Africans-advertise BUT as a whole blacks do not. Want a example? Go pick up a black owned newspaper and then go pick a Asian or Hispanic owned newspaper OR watch a Asian or Hispanic owned TV show or network. Then watch my TV show “Music Inner City” here in Seattle or online right here. This will make my point.
Sorry to say but Koreans are making MILLIONS AND MILLIONS of dollars selling black hair products. I can park my car in front of a Korean supply store and will see black female after black female going inside to spend cash. EVERYDAY the Koreans here in Seattle and else where are laughing all the way to the bank!
I don’t care how they obtained loans to open up new businesses! We as black folks do not have a problem getting a new SUV or Caddie or Lexus but what about opening a new business like the Koreans and other Asians, the Hispanics and now the East Africans are doing?
President Obama and others talk to us about going our own businesses. BUT the problem is, when black folks open new businesses, black folks need to support them. I will be back with Part 2 on this topic in a few days. Gordon Curvey
