Rubbing Obama’s Face in His Racism

It’s very telling when America’s first and only Black president’s greeted by people waving the Confederate flag, a supposed symbol of racism in the U.S. The flags were on display as President Barack Obama arrived in Oklahoma City for an overnight stay.

Andrew Duncomb, who calls himself the “Black rebel,” organized the Confederate flag demonstration. He also put together a similar protest at the Oklahoma State Capitol — a day after South Carolina removed its contested flag from the State Capitol grounds.

Obama praised the lowering of the Confederate flag in South Carolina earlier this month when he tweeted, “South Carolina taking down the confederate flag – a signal of good will and healing, and a meaningful step towards a better future.”

Obama also challenged those who defend the flag as a symbol of their Southern heritage saying, “For many, black and white, that flag was a reminder of systemic oppression and racial subjugation,” he said. “We see that now.”

Before his arrival in OKC, a group of Confederate flag supporters were out in force near Durant. The group was visible from the interstate as they flew several Confederate flags from their trucks and vehicles.

“We’re not gonna stand down from our heritage. You know, this flag’s not racist. And I know a lot of people think it is, but it’s really not,” said Trey Johnson, who drove three hours from Texas to join the protest. “It’s just a southern thing, that’s it.”

Oklahoma state Democratic representative Emily Virgin tweeted her disappointment with the flag display, “I am so embarrassed about what I just saw on the local news. Waving the confederate flag at the first African-American president. Good lord.”

Then she tried to change the subject, tweeting five-minutes later: “That whole ‘attracting jobs to OKC” thing is a little harder when the president is greeted at his hotel by the confederate flag.”

Evidently, Virgin had no idea that Obama was in town to visit El Reno Federal Correctional Institution, a medium-security prison for male offenders near Oklahoma City, not to talk about jobs. She should’ve known this since Obama killed the Keystone Pipeline deal that would’ve brought hundred’s of jobs to her state.

Of course, most Americans know that Obama is long past worrying about jobs or our economy. After all, with only few months left in office, he still has to fulfill his biggest promise to Progressive voters — and that’s “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

What Obama and his ilk do not understand about the American people’s sense of self is we’re rebels not only in spirit, but in action. Don’t believe it? Go ask Great Britain.

Rubbing Obama’s Face in His Racism

One thought on “Rubbing Obama’s Face in His Racism

  1. Now it’s August 2016 and in hindsight it’s clear that African-Americans are terrorists who despise the US and kill cops. Equally clear is that not all black folks are African-Americans. The Real Black Rebel is a great example of a Pro-US, Pro-Confederate, US-black man. That’s why we should all use terms like America-blacks or US-blacks to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Always put the ‘America’ first when naming any pro-US individual regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or whatever. African-Americans and other “whatever-americans” HATE the US more than ISIS.
