IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS, what did the ascension of Barack Obama to the Presidency in 2008 mean for Black America. Well judging by the proliferation of Black public officials across the country from roughly the 1960s to now it hasn't resulted in any substantial gains.

Here in Chicago one issue still being haggled over in the community, jobs. Mainly jobs for public projects that take place in the community. Not only Black-owned firms getting the business and scoring a bid, but Black-owned businesses who hire other Blacks to uplift the community.

Granted the Irish-American experience is much different than the Black-American experience, I never thought the Irish as not doing very well economically.
