Africans Loyalty to Obama, their Abusive Step-Brother

I find it extremely troubling that many Africans on the continent and people of African descent in the diaspora chant, “Obama is our African brother” or “Obama, I got your back”! I can’t help but to wonder whether Africans/ black people: are blinded by the fact that he is “black”, are not paying attention to the president’s foreign politices and, are desperate to identify with a hero.During Obama’s inauguration in 2008,many Africans were thrilled by the fact that a biracial man with African blood is holding the highest leadership position in a country that constantly exploits and bullies them. Africans hoped and prayed that he would use his office to introduce and implement foreign politices that could benefit them on a larger scale.

On the contrary the last four years of the Obama administration was far from “enjoyment”.

1. On his first official visit to the African continent, he blasted African leaders,blaming them for the woes of the continent. Yes, he was partly right but he blatantly ignored the role United States of America and its allies constantly play in under-developing Africa. For example America played a leading role in killing our self-less and revolutionary leaders such as Thomas Sankara of Burkina Faso, Patrice Lumumba of Congo and Muammar Muhammad Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi of Libya etc and support dictators: Yoweri Kaguta Museveni of Ugandan, Paul Kagame of Rwanda, Alassane Ouattara of Ivory Coast etc that work for America’s interests. Everytime Africans try to assert their autonomy, they are undermined by America or other Western powers.

2. Obama uses his black skin and the gullibility of many African people as opportunity to promote American imperialism and recolonization of Africa through the United States Africa Command ( Africom/ USAAfricom).He has deplored to occupy the continent. Any sensible and progressive leader would object to this project. Unfortunately some African leaders like the American ally, the so called first female President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia welcomed this recolonization even though many Liberians and African leaders are strongly against it.

3. War, War, and more War! The Obama administration has imposed it’s “war on terror” on African countries such as Kenya, Somalia, Sudan, Mali, Ivory, Libya and Nigeria.

4. Forcing Africans to accept Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) seeds and food,instead of supporting and encouraging African leaders to subsidized their local farmers to grow larger quantity of local organic crops that are much more healthier for the people.

  1. Sounds like a lot of complaining…black this black that African this African that you ppl need to wake up.When will you ppl learn to do things for yourself I hate reading trash like this

    • Is it possible for you to point exactly what you find as “complains” from this piece? And how do you know that Africans are not doing anything to rebuild their lives post-colonialism?

  2. Thank you for posting this piece. I am learning and studying Africa, and Africans in the diaspora, from a very knowledgeable professor who is Ghanaian. I appreciate the information you provide, and I feel sad that you must respond to ignorant people like anonymous above. Please know that there are Americans listening, and unless you continue your important blog, I would not have other perspectives. I don’t hear complaints. I hear conditions and important issues that will only change with the help of blogs like yours.

    • @Ailene,

      It was my pleasure writing this piece and I am happy to hear that you appreciate my little effort. Yes, you are right that I had to respond to anonymous but then again it is good to have folks like him/her they push me to do more research by doing that I could provide a coherent, well thought piece. Thank you for the words of encouragement, I hope your classes are going well feel free to drop by if you have questions about all things Africa ( continental/ diaspora/ pan-africa etc) it is my area of speciality. Until then,

      take it easy.

  3. Good day! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!

    • Greetings Lola, I hope you are having a wonderful day! It was painful writing this but Africans/ Blacks worldwide ought to have the information, just because someone is half-black doesn’t mean they have Africans/Blacks’ interest at heart. President Obama is the perfect example! Africans should always fight for Africa, if their sons and daughters are not keeping with the tradition/ loyalty of Africans they are to be ignored.


  4. I am wondering which blogging platform you’re using? I’m new to running a blog and have been thinking about using the Ning platform.

    Do you consider this is a good platform to start with?
    I would be really thankful if I could ask you some questions through e-mail so I can learn a bit
    more prior to getting started. When you have some free time, please contact me at: Thank you

  5. It’s going to be ending of mine day, but before ending I am reading this fantastic post to improve my experience.

  6. Hi, I do believe this is a great website. I stumbledupon it 😉 I’m going to revisit once again since I saved as a favorite it. Money and freedom is the greatest way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide others.
