PBS’s Tavis Smiley made a comment Thursday that every African-American as  well as liberal media member should sit up and take notice.

Appearing on Fox News’s Hannity, Smiley said, “The data is going to  indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will  have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category” (video  follows with transcript and commentary)
