President Obama Establishes Urban Policy Office

President Obama has created the Office of Urban Affairs, which aims to redefine the word "urban" and to establish a policy agenda not just for inner cities, but for the suburbs that surround them. The president has appointed Adolfo CarriĆ³n Jr. to be director of the Office of Urban Affairs.

The Washington Post article on this new office states:

"The word "urban" became code for "black" and "problem-ridden."
Ya think?

Urban areas ARE black and problem ridden. Black-on-Black murder is the most important environmental issue facing urban black communities today. We hope that President Obama's Urban Office will make Black-on-Black a priority because this behavioral pandemic is a cancer at the core of Black America [yes there is still a black side of town in every city in America].
