I applaud him for accepting the invitation to speak to the NAACP. He knew he would be booed, but he did not pander to them or patronize the organization. He said his message and the organization can take it or leave it. 

“If equal opportunity in America were an accomplished fact, then a chronically bad economy would be equally bad for everyone. Instead, it’s worse for African Americans in almost every way. The unemployment rate, the duration of unemployment, average income, and median family wealth are all worse for the black community. In June, while the overall unemployment rate remained stuck at 8.2 percent, the unemployment rate for African Americans actually went up, from 13.6 percent to 14.4 percent.”

While I am sure the NAACP did not like hearing that statistic, it does not change the fact that it is true...under Barack Obama's watch.
