Obama feels that "whites" let his skin color effect their perception of his totally awesome presidency. I'll be so glad when we can do away with this crutch that Obama uses for his failed pres.
The most powerful man in the free world had experienced racism, and Obama said American's primary concern about me was he seemed foreign.
Outgoing U.S. President, Barack Obama has disclosed that he ‘absolutely’ suffered racism in office, adding that Americans’ ‘primary concern about me has been that I seem foreign.’
“The concept of race in America is not just genetic, otherwise the one-drop rule wouldn’t have made sense.”
“It’s cultural. It’s this notion of a people who look different than the mainstream, suffering terrible oppression.
He compares "whites" in norther, verses southern states and how they view him different, and the color of his skin "absolutely" contributed to white Americans negative perceptions of his time in office.
“But somehow being able to make out of that a music and a language and a faith and a patriotism,” Obama said, in a special looking back on his legacy with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria.
“I think there’s a reason why attitudes about my presidency among whites in Northern states are very different from whites in Southern states.
“Are there folks whose primary concern about me has been that I seem foreign, the other? Are those who champion the ‘birther’ movement feeding off of bias? Absolutely.”
Obama said the colour of his skin had ‘absolutely’ contributed to white Americans’ negative perceptions of his time in office.
