Mr. President, three wishes of a Black American

November 7, 2012

First, be more forceful about appointing federal judges. As a former constitutional law professor, you know better than most the importance of the federal bench. Second, please listen to Paul Krugman on economic policy. He was right early on in the economic crisis when he was adamant about the need to create jobs.

We need you to stand up for us and to advance policies that will help us move upward, “lifting as we climb.”
