Q: Why did Obama get so much disrespect from some white people? Is it because he’s a black man?
Muhammad Rasheed - The identified behavior actually had much less to do with president Obama’s own race and much more to do with the over-inflated hopes that the American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) placed upon him. After decades of being convinced that the ‘flat-blackness’ preached by the Pan-Africanists and Afrocentrists was true, ADOS assumed that because the biracial son of a Kenyan was also black, that he would champion the Black Political Agenda and uphold the demands of the Civil Rights Act of 1866 – repairing 400 yrs of economic damage with an aggressive infusion of wealth in a comprehensive Reparations program and a protected economic inclusion into the ownership class. This woefully naïve belief by the ADOS community was so strong that it caused the white racist aristocracy to panic, thinking that perhaps Obama really was going to flip their precious, self-serving white supremacist racket upside-down on its head, hence their savage and blatant discriminatory acts in response to “Obamamania.”
