Obama Talks Shallow Simplistic Rubbish, Scolds & Lectured Africans As Expected!

...Better yet, Obama could have attended an African Union summit and engage all African leaders in brotherly conversation and corralled them on how to press the reset button on democracy, good governance, institutional reforms, prosperity and advancement on the continent, instead, Obama chose the simplistic and voyeuristic public shaming and ridiculing of Africans, as if he was a member of the Klu Klux Klan and that is what some are courageously spinning and labeling tough love? I am dismayed!

Anyone can say, arguably, that democracy is not perfect in Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria and indeed, the rest of the world! I make bold to say that the imperfect democracy in Kenya, South Africa and Nigeria, is better day compared with the non existence democracy night in say, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Looking at Obama, I can now say that the beautiful ones are not yet born!

remade, re-engineered and reconfigured America for America, for the world, for immigrants of

all races, but in particular, for all minorities, then continental African immigrants and

other immigrants of African descent. All those who come to America ought feel and see this...
