After torrents of white supremacist abuse from the mass white supremacist movement of the 'tea party' and many other racist slurs from different quarters including a recent attack by a belgian newspaper Obama comes in for more racist abuse as notorious and conceited empire war monger donald rumsfeld calls usa president Obama no better than a "trained ape".
rumsfeld said in context of usa/nato's failture's and falling out with Afghan President Krzai: “We have status of forces agreements probably with 100, 125 countries in the world," Rumsfeld said. "This administration, the White House, and the State Department, have failed to get a status of forces agreement. A trained ape could get a status of forces agreement. It doesn’t take a genius.”
The usa system had selected Obama into power, with the benefit of hindsight, we can see how this racialised the situation in the usa and beyond to the benefit of the usa system and the greater white supremacist imperialist system in general, as it served as a cover for the seven month bombing of Libya/Africa and the major colonial military push into Africa. While the situation with Africa and especially Libya is a real infamous injustice, I am not sure Obama is worse than former george bush, but it is clear that the Obama phenomenon causes a lot more confusion which benefits the system which Obama is serving.
The other danger in response to these racist attacks and slurs on Obama is that more people rally behind Obama and in so doing also rally behind the project which he is there to serve, a project which is railed against the Humanity on the planet which are victims of the european white supremacist system.
Although Obama is himself also a victim of the same system, albeit one of the most privileged ones, Obama is displaying one of the biggest characteristics of a non-white/Black victims who serves the system by putting himself at the service of the same system which perpetuates and refines its oppression while using Obama himself as one of the main props in so doing.
