Seattle -- Suing President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party for racism would be a joke if the Plaintiffs were anyone other than Rev. Wayne Perryman, a respected black minister and community activist. Perryman, an author, lecturer and a former newspaper publisher and radio talk show host who has received a multitude of honors and awards for his work and community service, was recently recognized by Chairman Benjamin Jealous of the NAACP for his latest research on racism and politics.
On September 11, 2011, Perryman brought together blacks from the West Coast and the East Coast to sign one of the most comprehensive legal briefs ever prepared for a racial discrimination lawsuit. The suit was to filed on September 12, 2011 in US District Court against President Barack Obama and the DNC. The plaintiffs, who refer to the defendants as the Father of Racism, allege that as an organization, the Democratic Party has consistently refused to apologize for the role they played in slavery, Jim Crow and for other subsequent racist practices from 1792 to 2011. Mrs. Frances P. Rice, the Chair of the National Black Republican Association is also a named plaintiff in the class action lawsuit.
The case (No. C11-1503), cites the collective work of over 350 legal scholars and includes Congressional records, case law, research from our nation's top history professors, racist statements from Democratic elected officials, citations from the Democrat's National Platforms regarding their support of slavery, excepts of speeches from Senator Obama, individual testimonies from blacks who lived in the Jim Crow South and opinions from the NAACP.
Perryman said President Obama was named as a defendant not only because he is the official leader of the Democratic Party, but because of certain statements he made about his own party in his book, Dreams from My Father. In 2009, the President was asked to issue an apology to blacks on behalf of his party, but he refused. Unlike other reparations lawsuits, this lawsuit merely asks for a public apology, but no monetary damages.

WOW!!!!!!! I think there are lots more unhappy folks out in America than we can even comprehend. HOw very interesting....... so there are actual 'reparation lawsuits' out there? Please expound on that......
The reparation lawsuits are legit...this guy is not.
1. People can PROVE that certain families got rich off their ancestor's labor....stunningly, obscenely rich. These families of slaves are entitled to some of that wealth, which was born on the backs of their kin.
2. How is Obama responsible for white slave-holders in 1792?
How can he apologize for all Democrats? That's stupid! Nor are all Democrats racists!
And where's the law-suit for the party of Macacaw, tar-baby, and That One?
Let Me take a wild guess here...this dude is a Republican? Or a Tea-Bagger?
You all never quit, do you?
Is 'Blacks" the name the group has given itself?
Will it be Blacks vs Obama in the legal documents?

Documented historical facts. Pesky things.
But the Democrats will never own their actions. They'll simply go down a rabbit hole like always and pop up somewhere else doing the same old same old racism.
Courts don't matter, that's clear.
BTW, IF you are interested in getting answers to your questions I suggest you follow the link I provided and go do a little arrgghhhh!!! reading.
Waitaminute....the Demoratic party is the party of racism?
And Obama is supposed to apologize for white people from 1792?
Oh, he has GOT to be a Bagger!
No one else would be so ridiculous.
I don't think anyone could argue that,historically, blacks were not at a serious disadvantage. But, the laws and the attitudes today allow us all to be on a level playing field; if we simply attempt to function within the system. I could never support such a frivolous lawsuit.
I have no problem openly admitting that our collective history is less than perfect. I have no problem admitting that our nation still has work to do to become color blind. But, there are examples in our society that clearly show any one; regardless of color, sex, religion, or national origin, can achieve whatever goals they work toward.
These examples tell me that bs lawsuits such as this one are an embarassment to people willing to take responsibility for their own lives. I don't think the majority of those alive today owe anyone an apology. I think our government owes our society exactly what it is doing. Trying to ensure an environment where there is equality for all.
Obama ate my dog alive! And I am in Australia. Is there no end to the evil of this man?

So President Obama's approval rating after one month is...only 68%. Our expectations of him on Inauguration night were too high. His approval rating back on Jan. 20 was around 80%.

It seems funny to me that a man can be judged by his own ghost. Every President in the history of this great country has promised the moon and stars and given us some of what they promised and more headache and angst...
