AFRICANGLOBE – At an Obama “Tax Evading” Foundation (because that is what foundations in the U.S are – they are untaxable), the former U.S president made the following comments:
“If you are really confident about your financial situation, you probably are not going to be wearing an eight pound chain around your neck because you know ‘Oh, I got bank.’ I don’t have to show you how much I got. I feel good. If you are very confident about your sexuality, you don’t have to have eight women around you twerking.”
This is not the first time Obama has engaged in speaking down to people he’s never really had to live with, and know proper! Obama grew up in Hawaii, and Indonesia. Obama’s political marriage to Michelle is also no privilege gained for him to continue to speak down to African American communities that he barely ever mentions otherwise. One political marriage in an African American community is not a real effort to know all African American communities and their suffering under American white supremacy!
So let’s face the facts. Under Obama, African American unemployment got worse. Wealth transfer to Caucasian Americans intensified, and the wealth gap between Blacks and whites got worse. There was zero reform for the mass incarceration of Black men by white men for absolutely no law enforcement reason. Under Obama white men lynched so many Black men in broad daylight comparable to periods under US chattel slave history.
Yet, this white man has the bravura to signify blackness, and re-signify blackness, again and again in speeches and pep-talks, and chastise what he perceives to be Black men behavior, as if all that Black men do in America is wear eight pound chains and dance around eight twerking women. What with eight? See how ignorant this Caucasian president is about African Americans? See the nonsense?
How about Obama go to Redneck Pennsylvania and advise his fellow white men that their show of masculinity by enacting utter violence on African American communities is no manhood at all. How about Obama go to Zimmerman nation and tell his fellow white men there that shooting down unarmed Black men for absolutely no human reason is no manhood at all. How about Obama go to country Tennessee and advice his fellow white men there that putting Black men in jail for free labor is not the best show of white manhood. That white men too can farm, labor and dig trenches for themselves. How about that for a change, Obama?
