When a man betrays  his own community, it tells much about who this man really is.

When a politician forgets who has enabled him to come to power, it is revealing of his real nature.

And those who elected him feel deceived, betrayed, frustrated, and angry.

This is what is currently happening in America, between Barack Obama and African Americans.
Two days ago, I was listening to a report on the French radio France Inter. The on-the-scene reporter was in Washington, interviewing many Black Americans to ask them how they felt one year after Obama's election. And the answer was always the same : "We feel very disappointed. For us, nothing has changed".

This negative impression is confirmed by today's news :
Barack Obama has been the subject of a protest by African Americans in Washington.

Hundreds of people have marched on the White House, protesting the policies of the first black US president and referring to him as a black man in a "white-face."

More than 200 people, in the first public demonstration by African Americans against the Obama administration, accused the president of being an "imperialist" and demanded he bring US troops home.

Civil rights activists called for the withdrawal of all troops from Iraq and Afghanistan while also calling for the scrapping of Africom, the controversial year-old United States Africa Command.

The protestors listened as President Obama was attacked for "turning a cold shoulder to the plight of African Americans."

But they were also told the organisers were not looking for a change in the occupant of the White House from black to white, but for change in foreign and domestic policies.

Black Americans voted overwhelmingly for Democrat Obama in last year's election.
