Liberal radio talk show host Tavis Smiley told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Monday night that President Obama has failed black America.

Kelly introduced the segment by citing Gallup polling which found in June/July of 2008, 68 percent of Americans believed race relations were Good/Somewhat Good, while 30 percent thought they were Bad/Somewhat Bad. The polling firm reported last summer less than half, 47 percent, believe relations are good, while 53 percent report them as bad.

Kelly turned to Smiley and asked, “On the subject of race, are we better off today that seven years ago?”

“I’m not sure we are and I think ultimately the president missed a moment,” Smiley responded. “On every leading economic issue, on the major economic issues, black Americans have lost ground in every one of those leading categories. So in the last 10 years it hasn’t been good for black folk. This is the president’s most loyal constituency that didn’t gain any ground really in that period.”

Smiley went on to state, “Historians are going to have a field day I think juxtapose how in the era of the first black president, the bottom fell out for black America. Black people were still in many ways politically marginalized, socially manipulated and economically exploited. That is a lot to try to square in the era of the first black president.”

Kelly questioned the radio talk show host concerning whether he thought President Obama could have done anything differently. Both agreed making healthcare his first policy objective was “divisive,” which started his presidency off on the wrong foot with many. Smiley said he should have led with jobs.

The well-established maxim is the best anti-poverty program is a job, which is the reason the poverty rate for African Americans and the country overall dropped in the 1980s and ’90s, while the economy boomed under pro-growth policies.
