Today's topic at my blog "Resurgence" on BigThink.com:
Why Are Some African American Professionals Disappointed With Obama?
I wanted to start the year off on a positive note, but a spin around the blogosphere today has already got my blood pressure up. In particular, I am extremely disturbed by a phenomenon that appears to be spreading among a certain segment of upwardly mobile African Americans, a group who has traditionally been a part of President Obama’s strongest base of support. I think the big problem for me is not that some of these folks, who are among the highest paid and best educated people in the country, are dissatisfied with the president’s performance, but because these are the people who are the best equipped to know better.
