Has Obama done enough for African Americans?

Fifty years to the day that Dr. King stood on the steps of the Lincoln memorial and spoke of his dream for racial equality, the nation's first African-American president, Barack Obama, stood in that same spot, to commemorate that historic day.

50 years after the March on Washington: What's changed for African-Americans

But has Dr. King's dream been fully realized?

CNN's Joe Johns has the story.

    @-3 AM watching Out Front #4:: Where did you find two selfish, critical women just interviewed. The evil congress has tied Our President's hands for addressing social issues::Did you read the horrible farm bill–subsidies for the rich, nothing for the poor!! Last week President Obama toured 5 colleges, town hall excellent–discussing education!! If you take away the Health Reform Bill–you take away college loans–back to the banks , interest 24% the day you graduate. President has made pay back reasonable, put in stop checks so kids finish their education; don't get absorbed with debt; After colleges to contain costs!!Congress has refused to pass a jobs bill since 2009!! Creepy dumbest , critical guests have seen anywhere lately. Why didn't we get single payer? Good old Joe Lieberman blocked the vote–remember–his wife makes about ! million/ year from Etna insurance–God wouldn't want him to take away insurance profits–then he quits Senate!! So much more to say- pick intelligent guests that have something to offer!! PS maybe they could have bathed and groomed before going on national TV!!!
