AFRICANGLOBE - President Barack Obama capped his eight years in office with a vacuous and hypocritical farewell address Tuesday night delivered at the McCormick Place convention center in downtown Chicago. The first-ever presidential farewell address delivered outside of Washington, DC had the atmospherics of an overblown, cheap spectacle.
AFRICANGLOBE - Walk into a Black family function, make yourself a plate of food and then yell, “Obama hasn’t done anything for black people!” Watch how quickly your plate is snatched. You’ll be attacked from all angles, called every name and probably thrown out face-first. Black people have been the ultimate Obama apologists. The last eight years have been a constant string of excuses for what he hasn’t done.
AFRICANGLOBE - The house was built in 1928 and has nine bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms. It was sold in 2014 for more than $5 million. President Obama has said he and his family will live in the Washington home after he departs 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in January 2017, a change from most former presidents.
AFRICANGLOBE - President Barack Obama urged Americans to make history on Tuesday by electing the Democrat Hillary Clinton to succeed him in the White House. "I ask you to do for Hillary what you did for me," Obama told a rally in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the first of three he is holding for Clinton on the eve of the vote.
AFRICANGLOBE - The wage gap between Black and white workers in the US has increased significantly since 1979, all while productivity has gone up by nearly 63 percent overall, according to a new report. Younger Black women, or those with 10 years of experience or less, have lost the most ground compared to their white peers since 2000. This category of Black women earned 4.1 percent less than young white women in 2000; in 2015, that gap has grown to 10.8 percent less.
AFRICANGLOBE - President Obama gave his final speech to the Congressional Black Caucus gala on Saturday, in what turned out to be a condescending plea to the Black community to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton so his legacy could be continued. Mr. Obama said he would consider it a “personal insult” if African-American voters didn’t turn out for Mrs. Clinton and that all the progress the country has made over the last eight years, under his reign, was on the line.
AFRICANGLOBE - President Barack Obama made quite a splash at a 2016 Congressional Black Caucus dinner. News reports say Obama gave his most fiery Presidential speech ever as he tried to fire up some political puppets before the upcoming fall elections. I say puppets because even if the President didn’t say a mumbling word, Black elected officials would probably vote for every Democrat anyway.
AFRICANGLOBE - The lack of respect for the office of the President of the United States from Republicans is utterly appalling. No matter who the president is, or how much you disagree with their policy proposals or how they conduct business, you respect the office. You don’t have the respect the person, but you respect the role they play as the leader of the nation. However, Republicans seem to have forgotten this unwritten rule, especially under the presidency of Barack Obama. Their utter disrespect borders on utter impudence.
AFRICANGLOBE - It was not surprising when American President Obama told Africans in Kenya to go homosexual. Barack Obama’s speeches on his recent visit to Kenya and Ethiopia did not show any sign that the American government’s condescending policy towards Africa has changed. His lecturing African leaders on “democracy” and “values”, was reflective of the old policy of dictating to non-Western nations on how they must conduct their national affairs.
AFRICANGLOBE - US President Barack Obama’s recent visit to East Africa was an occasion for hypocritical finger-pointing Obama usually reserves for his frequent hectoring of Black America, this time using “gay rights” as the standard. It’s a standard which he would never use to lecture America’s other vassals like the bloodstained beheading backward Saudi regime.
AFRICANGLOBE - This weekend, ever-opinionated billionaire candidate for president Donald Trump lowed the boom on President Obama on the often discussed issue of what the first Black President has done for African Americans.
AFRICANGLOBE - Donald Trump thinks the United States will not see another Black president for some time because Barack Obama has "set a very poor standard," the racial arsonist, loud mouth, entertainer and Republican presidential candidate told ABC News on Sunday.
AFRICANGLOBE - Instead of coming to lecture, Obama should have had the humility to come and apologise to Africans for his country's sadistic adventures on our continent. Indeed, Obama has no moral right to lecture Africans on democracy, human rights, and clean government because his country has been sponsoring corrupt and cruel policies against Black people at home and thieving tyrants on our continent.
AFRICANGLOBE - US President Barack Obama arrived in Kenya yesterday on a weekend visit that will include talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta focused on trade and investment, counter-terrorism, democracy and human rights issues.
AFRICANGLOBE - The criminal justice system is "particularly skewed by race and by wealth," President Barack Obama said on Tuesday in a speech at the NAACP Annual Convention in Philadelphia, citing a "long history of inequity in the criminal justice system in America."
AFRICANGLOBE - “Those advancing gay rights must similarly appreciate our Christian, Islamic and African traditional values which abhor homosexuality.” Pointing out that sodomy is a criminal offence in Kenya, Muturi said his government has the right to “sanction any advances perceived to encroach on our social fabric” and that he believes advocacy of same-sex "marriage" is a form of Western ideological oppression disguised as human rights.
