I beg to differ.
The first two things Obama did, upon taking office, were to save the American auto industry jobs and pensions and to pass a gigantic stimulus bill that went entirely to local governments.
What is seldom discussed is that the auto unions were the major employers in all black communities where they are situated.
What is never discussed is that the local government is the largest employer of blacks in black communities.
I cannot find data to confirm either of my statements, but I am fairly confident they are accurate.
In that case, the first thing Obama did was to create jobs in the black community.
The several acts he could have taken to create more jobs for blacks are not available to a Democrat: lowering the minimum wage, increasing international trade and significantly reducing licensing requirements for low level skills like hairdressers and healthcare assistants.
