Obama hasn't been able to make the radical changes that some hoped that he would be able to, but he has done more for Black Americans than Jesse ever has. Black folks represent about 18% of the federal workforce, while only constituting about 13% of the total population of the country. This is something that Obama has actual control over. The private market will hire and fire at its discretion: the president has no control over this at all, so don't blame him for it.
