Wednesday, 29 Oct 2014 04:15 PM

Most African American youths believe President Barack Obama is a "deadbeat" leader, says Paul McKinley, a member of Voices of the Ex-Offender, a grassroots group of former inmates.

"Every time they question the president about the black community, he's apologetic or embarrassed. Half of the time, I would say 97 percent of the time, he doesn't even want to say the black community exists," McKinley said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"A lot of the young people are seeing this double standard that the president has."

McKinley says  black Americans have identified with the Democratic Party since the mid-1960s when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act.

"All the way up to now, black folks have been voting for the Democratic Party," he said.

"If you look at our community, our community has gotten seven times worse than it ever had been with or without the law."
