Barack Obama Is Red And Grey And Black And White And Not That Keen On Brown

by | 8th, March 2009

IN the IHT, President Barack is said to have “chided his attorney general, Eric Holder Jr., for describing America as a ‘nation of cowards’ when discussing race, wading into a tumult that flared over Holder’s indictment of the way this country talks about ethnicity.”

Obama is the leader of post-racial American. He is of no determinate colour, but if pushed some would say he is grey, or red.

“I think it’s fair to say that if I had been advising my attorney general, we would have used different language.”

Newsweek‘s Raina Kelley, opines:

Dear fellow journalists (especially the ones on TV): can I offer you a bit of unsolicited advice? Be brave. Listening to you talk (and talk and talk) around the subject of Barack Obama and race has been downright painful. Yes, our new president is black, and most of you are white, and judging by the way you excruciatingly measure every word you say about him, it’s pretty clear that you are worried that you’ll inadvertently say something insensitive and you’ll wind up being accused of racism and it will ruin your career. I understand your fear. But seriously, it makes for some pretty painful watching.
