"OBAMA NATION (4)" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, June 5 2009 - In an African article, Barack Obama is described as a "wealthy American". The article describes Obama's brother George and the conditions under which he lives in a Kenyan ghetto.
The more you research, the more you discover how Barack Obama is nothing more or less than the successor of George W. Bush, who in his turn was the successor of Bill Clinton.
The people behind and around Barack Obama are the same ones who have been behind the scenes for decades, selecting presidents and policy. They're not the sufferers that looked up to Nelson Mandela when he was suffering in a South-African prison.
These are reasons, why Reggae Artists should reconsider their enthusiasm for Barack Obama. Enthusiasm for Barack Obama is enthusiasm for his political agenda.
