President Obama

Influential blacks were calling for President Barack Obama to appoint a black woman to the Supreme Court seat vacated by Justice Antonin Scalia.

Obama was expected to appoint California AG Kamala Harris, who is half black on her daddy’s side.

But once again, Obama disappointed his supporters.

See who he chose after the break.

    Maybe this guy was the best man for the job?

  • lil goodie

    He had his reasons…..

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    Obama had to pick smart. He wasn’t going to pick one of us. Be smart.

  • Just Keya

    I don’t see the issue. And why is it important that the woman’s father is black?! Really?!

  • lil goodie

    Maybe because he doesn’t want anyone going through the hell he has been going through for the past 8 years by the media and blogs..wasn’t it already said that they would not support him on his choice if it was a black person? ??? Keys have both sides now. ..ijs

  • ifixstudentloans

    He is Jewish and knows that his (The nominee)peeps will rally behind him.

  • SameoleJ

    He was the most qualified, in addition to the fact that he was qualified…..did I mention that he is qualified?! Oh, I see I did.

  • SameoleJ

    Naw………that wouldn’t make sense!! (sarcasm to the 10th power)

    We all know that if he had tried to put a Black judge in there, the Republicans would veto it. As long as this man stands for “Justice” then that is all one could ask for.

  • Finding Forever…

    Could he possibly have been chosen because they might not disagree & actually grant the nomination? He’s from Chicago & has been working in these DC woods, so he might “know someone that knows someone”…had tears & all in his speech :)

    From all of your angry rhetoric I see, far as your comments on Bossip, I think you have some kind of deep seated anger towards black women. Angry birds. You have used that term more than once huh? Are you even American? I saw you cape’n for the VIs. Here is a suggestion. Why don’t you take your angry MALE ass right on back over to Bossip? And since she has to take her ugly ass picture down, why don’t you lock your Disqus account.

  • 88

    President Obama said himself he can’t do anything unless Black ppl unite and force him, just like the Gays and Immigrants did but instead of uniting our leaders have wasted 8 years doing nothing but gobbling hush money from wall street/corporations and squabbling with each other.

    This is no ones fault but ours.

    Some black people are only black on the outside… They don’t do shit for their race..maybe this guy is best qualified for the job..Obama is no fool

  • 88

    I hope you know the phrase ” let sleeping dogs lie” means to deny REALITY. America is about Race the word itself contains the phrase ”I AM RACE” How very sad, we are in 2016 and after all of things we have went through and still going through in this country a beautiful black woman is sitting up talking about everything is not about race smdh.

  • Kilroy

    obama sux

  • Roc

    Kamala made it VERY clear that she didn’t want the job, and that she was running for Senate, so I don’t really understand why anyone was expecting him to nominate her.

  • Li

    If you want to see the President’s nomination go through, write Mitch McConnell at 601 W. Broadway, #630, Louisville KY 40202
    Or better boycott Kentucky. I just wrote the Gov of Kentucky and told him I was starting a movement thru email to boycott McConnell’s state – Kentucky.

  • Li

    Get a postcard and write Mitch McConnell…threaten to boycott Kentucky.

  • Li

    He picked at man who is at the peak of his career. Did you read Merrick’s resume — EXCELLENT! Let’s not get racist over this.

  • Li

    Maybe just maybe there aren’t enough BLACK judges that have climbed the ladder! and are qualified for the Supreme Court. Judge Thomas certainly was NOT qualified, he was a political choice.

  • Just Keya

    I did say no person is qualified for every job right. I would think that included black and white people.

  • stanley

    Honestly. Black Cops, Lawyers and Judges are all “Coons” lol… They sale their souls to the devil to get their positions. They just like Stacy Dash. So employing them won’t help the black community at all.

    I have a relative was in the military, and republican. He hates black people. And He only dates White women, and Asians lmao. So unless you giving the job to Judge Mathis, or an Judge that loves the black community you won’t get anywhere and they are very rare.

  • Sincerity7

    The Republicans still mad…so you know it would have been worse if he would have nominated a Black female.

  • guest

    SR get your facts straight and don’t try to shame our PREZ. Harris is running may not want the job.

  • AnonymousRose

    Who? I don’ t vote sorry I was making a statement

  • Auditor

    My movie! Lol

  • Auditor

    Exactly I’m like say what???!!

  • Auditor

    No I learned this…you as a MAN would never understand…sometimes it has to do with gender too. Cause last time I checked women are being railroaded just like Black folks.

  • Luvn_it

    These things shouldn’t be down to race. It should be who’s the better man/woman for the job. If he did nominated the black woman and she proofed to be incompetent it would be his fault for even choosing her. He doesn’t have to pic someone just b/c they’re the same race. If anyone is picking their political learders based on race have no right to complain about what’s going on in state or federal government.

  • MistaO

    If he would’ve appointed a Black man, could you imagine Two Black men on the highest court? Would’ve taken a big pair to do that though.

  • MistaO

    Hell black people can’t even unite our “families” with one man /one woman and all kids from each other…much less as a grand collective

  • 88

    With Self Respect and Determination we absolutely can we did it before we can do it AGAIN!

  • dancemomtoo131

    Exactly…when it comes to President Obama Sandrarose.com always turns it into something negative.

  • Molly Church

    U will never Please “Everybody?.

    & we Won’t Either??

  • Chuck

    As it is those idiot senators weren’t going to approve anyone Obama picked. He certainly wasn’t going to recommend someone who has no shot in hell of being approved. So to get mad at his strategic pick of Merrick, who was already approved once before by these useless senators is kind of silly. This guys background was a nice balance for both sides and basically exposes the progress blocking senate once again for the lame ducks that they are.

  • lovelygamour

    the hispanic and jewish lady he appointed werent over the moon qualified. it didnt have to be that particle black woman but im sure there are others that were qualified to at least be in the running.

  • Zizzle

    President Obama is playing congressional Republicans like a fiddle.

  • Nigg_Newton

    REALLY BLACK FOLKS —

    This TRUMP BULLSHEIT going down in CHICAGO is not our — FIGHT!!!

    Let them HISPANICS do their work…BLACK FOLKS stop doing this stupid SHEIT.

    MAKE THEM HISPANICS do their IMMIGRATION WORK…we don’t have a DOG in that FIGHT.

    Hispanics are not BLACK FOLKS friends, they are your REPLACEMENTS here to take your JOB!

    WHERE ARE the Hispanic: Singers, Musicians, Entertainers, etc…

  • Nigg_Newton

    I could careless!

    There are PLENTY OF QUALIFIED people.

    Damn…are you BLACK FOLKS saying, no BLACK ATTORNEYS were qualified to be a Supreme Court Judge?!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Stop spamming or you will be banned.

  • Nigg_Newton

    Well how about a MORE Conservative opinion on these TOPICS!

    Sandra Rose, we know that D. Trump is not against Black Americans, yet nobody BLACK like you aka Black MEDIA, is stepping up to the PLATE!

    We continue to get a ONE SIDED OPINION on Politics. You have a voice to give both sides.

    REAL Journalism requires this.

  • stanhope

    Uncle Barack wasnt about to do something so courageous. He should have nominated Anita Hill but that would have been too much like right

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Clearly you don’t read this blog on a regular basis. If you did, you would know that I, Sandra Rose, at one time supported Mr. Trump who promised to build a wall to keep illegal immigrants from stealing American jobs.

  • Nigg_Newton

    One article versus MANY articles…

    The onus is on BLACK MEDIA PLATFORMS/people like you.

  • LordeAmbler

    They banned him on mediatakeout he is a constant offender. Ban him.

  • Vee

    Before Scalia was even cold, Senate Maj Leader said there will be no hearings on a new SCOTUS, but somehow nominating a black woman/person wld have made him change his mind? Heck even one the most qualified people was still rejected, its all about sticking it to Obama

  • LordeAmbler

    Sandra MTO block him all the time. He demonizes all urban sites.

  • Nigg_Newton

    LordeAmbler,

    You cannot BLOCK the person that built your site as in MTO…They send great checks quarterly.

    YOU SEE B0SSIP was sold…to a WHITE COMPANY. Blocking people will get you SOLD, or put out of business!

    Drops MIC….

  • butchie4ever

    Kamala Harris took her name out of consideration pretty soon after rumors start that she was being considered…she is running for Senate and said that this is the only seat that she is interested in…most of the other African Americans under consideration also removed themselves from consideration as well…there was only one judge that was under consideration who was African American and he was a long shot considering how many people voted for his confirmation to the lower court…

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Thanks for the info. For a second there I thought he was 25%.

  • LordeAmbler

    Pick the mic back up and go start your own urban site.

  • LordeAmbler

    Well we have a black representation up there he’s just like typical black men who get successful they turn coon. Actually I believe every race is represented. I would have like to see a Indian nominated. But maybe not at this time.

  • Nigg_Newton

    If MTO is sending me checks…it’s obvious that I own part of the site.

    Are you that stupid that I have to tell you the obvious!

    I run a DIGITAL EMPIRE…from Conservative to GOSSIP to just plain Advertisements.

    JEWS like me run the world!

  • LordeAmbler

    Ugh so go on a Jewish site. Why are you consuming yourself on black sites. Probably cause yall Jews are boring. There’s nothing to talk about. But black people.

  • Nigg_Newton

    I do CLOWN…

    You folks don’t realize I have an OFFICE of about 10-12 blogger doing this ALL DAY 24/7!

    It’s a BUSINESS for me…sorry but again…BLACK FOLKS don’t know how to make money in the DIGITAL GAME…

  • Nigg_Newton

    Listen,

    I don’t subscribe to LOW CRANIAL CAPACITY individuals so just vote TRUMP! Or get in line to be under the Hispanics.

  • Nigg_Newton

    You’re a clown…and a (LCCBP) = Low Cranial Capacity Black person

  • Hmmm~?

    Did you ban 25%? I kinda liked them. Also, banning Nigg would be a good idea. All he does is troll and is likely a schizo.

  • Deno Spencer

    I think Obama will go down in history as one of the greatest presidents. He never seems to side with race or whats expected but rather what’s best for all people of all nationalities all Americans. So many programs he created and silently release thousands from prison with no fan fair. He was graceful and the people running now have none of those qualities In my opinion. I just noticed his scholarly debates as compared to the rhtheric in debates now

  • Tyneshia

    what changed Sandra? Why dont you support Trump anymore? I love the Donald.

  • LordeAmbler

    lmao. I can tell you’re white. Lmao.

  • Nigg_Newton

    We have to VOTE TRUMP 2016!

    Nobody is talking about Black issues except Donald Trump!

    He has said he will build a wall and deport, deport, deport.

    That will CREATE MORE JOBS, Opportunities, Education and Welfare for BLACK FOLKS.

    Stump for TRUMP!

  • RileyMarie

    Obama only cares about the gays.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No. I think 25% got tired of the abuse and left.
