Decrying Barack Obama as "white power in black face," hundreds of African-Americans marched on the White House Saturday to protest policies of the first black US president, and demand that he bring US troops home.
More than 200 people gathered for the first public demonstration by African Americans against the Obama administration since his historic inauguration in January, and slammed the president for continuing what they described as Washington's "imperialist" agenda around the world.
"We recognize that Barack Hussein Obama is white power in black face," civil rights activist Omali Yeshitela, chairman of the Black is Back coalition which arranged the protest, called into a megaphone as the group marched outside the mansion's gates.
"He is a tool of our imperialist enemies and we demand our freedom. And we demand that Obama withdraw all the troops from Afghanistan right now."
Protesters also called for Obama to order troops out of Iraq and to scrap Africom, the controversial year-old United States Africa Command, and demanded "hands off" Venezuela and ends to the Cuba embargo and the Zimbabwe blockade.
Wow! Who knew? Black lefties finally waking up to the fact that Barack Obama isn't as "Black" or concerned about Black people as they liked to think. They should've added hasn't addressed Black-on-Black crime, white gays exploiting the civil rights movement, Black joblessness (which has increased more than the national average since Barry took office), poverty, teenage pregnancy, drugs & crime in the Black community to the list. Either way took 'em long enough to wake up to what us Black conservatives have known all along.
