Right now more than ever celebrities are being told to step up and do more for the African-American community.

We’re sliding in all of the important categories and any help from those with clout is appreciated. Some don’t do anything while others’ contributions are overlooked in favor of the big news story.

Lil Wayne – He gave money and dedicated songs after Katrina, but people still wanted him to do more for New Orleans instead of  going to live in Miami and rap about who knows what.

Jay-Z – Harry Belafonte said he needs to do more and Jay thinks his presence as a reformed drug-dealer turned billionaire businessman and entertainer is charity enough. Hmmmm…

Beyonce – Harry B told her to step it up, too. We’ll see what happens with that.

Michael Jordan – He’s always been criticized for not doing enough but he doesn’t care.

Barack Obama – Despite how much he’s been able to accomplish, he’s endlessly criticized by many for allegedly turning his back on Black America when he got on.
