Over the last several years I have watched this lovers' quarrel with a burdened heart and bewildered mind.The Smiley family moved to Bunker Hill, Indiana, when Smiley's stepfather was transferred to Grissom Air Force Base.At home, Smiley suffered from poverty as well as from physical abuse by his stepfather.As the story goes, many in the black community either turned on or tuned out Smiley when he persisted to publicly challenge, criticize, and correct President Obama for not putting forth a "black agenda." While Smiley has argued that his critique of the president has been rooted in principle and based on his love for black people, many black Americans still aren't buying it.In their opinion Smiley's critiques are nothing more than insincere verbal attacks that stem from envy of President Obama and too much love for himself and his own legacy.
