Barack Hussein Obama is the 44th and current President of the United States. He is the 1st African American to hold the office and the 1st president born outside the continental United States.
This country is better because of Barack Obama. Our blessings as people of color are few and hard to come by. When you are blessed, no one can put out your light. While we claim our 44th president as a part of our heritage, he truly served all people of America and beyond. How sad it is we are faced with our current choices. Although we as a people must support our first woman nomination Hillary Clinton, we must also pray for her and the enemies she has made. I can’t image America in the hands of that other nominee whose name I will not say.
Blessings to the Obamas! May your life continue to be an inspiration to the rest of the world.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. PRESIDENT!
No reason for black People to celebrate Barrack Obama’s birthday/whatever occassion associated with him. He is one of the trashiest presidents that America has produced. Under Obama an African president in the form of Gadaffi was killed like a dog. During his presidency black men are murdered indiscriminately by white police. How can we celebrate a puppet whose presidency exposed the futility of having a black man at the apex of the American state machinery. What achievement are we celebrating in a black man who assiduously maintained white racist hegemony in America.
Zwelenkosi, what are you talking about Barack Obama practiced “white racist hegemony in America?” If you feel that slanted about Obama, I wonder how you feel about the White House Resident we have now. He makes Richard Nixon and George W. Bush look like choir boys. This man lies better than the worst kind of thief one can ever think of and then lies even more after being shown were he made his earlier lie. You can have him all to yourself because I certainly want no part of him.
