It just gets worse.
An American president who has "the blood of Africa within me" praised and scolded the continent of his ancestors Saturday, asserting forces of tyranny and corruption
must yield if Africa is to achieve its promise.
"The blood of Africa in me". That's what Mr. President said. A man whose African father divorced his wealthy, white, teen-aged mother has the entirety of a continent coursing through his veins. The arrogance!
And who enables this arrogance? Yahoo News, of course, with the headline: Son of Africa, Obama scolds forces of tyranny and corruption holding back the continent
The man loves himself and the press loves him for it. Is there no shame? Not in the newsroom and not in Africa where Obama's impoverished family live.
Just read the article. It's drenched with self-serving platitudes and half-baked imagery.
