If folks are still arguing that Obama does not have a clear "black agenda" may be missing the point. I actually believe that in addition to healthcare, which will help millions more black folks, Obama's black agenda moves beyond our water's edge here in the United States. Obama quietly signed into law last week legislation that would drop Haiti's debt to the United States. The Debt Relief for Earthquake Recovery in Haiti Act was introduced by California representative Maxine Waters, and passed both houses of Congress, would put the United States in the lead with pushing other countries and international lending organizations like the World Bank to do the same.
