Nine hundred and thirty-one (931) days. Two years, six months, 20 days – give or take a few. That’s how much time has passed since President Barack H. Obama stepped into the White House Oval Office and took his seat at the Resolute desk as President of the United States, pen in hand.

August 2011 – the Congressional Black Caucus comes out of Washington, DC with a “Jobs Tour” to address the glaring and more than obvious jobs gap and wealth factors between the black and white communities. Problem is, the black community was already in a hard recession – losing jobs and homes by the thousands when he arrived – before most of white America ever felt the vibrations of the coming economic earthquake. But as the old saying goes: Better late than never.
