A good take on U.S. President Barack Obama’s visit tomorrow.
Hope springs eternal, goes the adage. President Barack Obama first won a mandate from the American electorate on a platform that had many key phrases to give new life the aspirations of many who felt left on the outside of society’s progress. One of them was the simple word, hope.
Just one word
I won’t go into what the first black American president has meant to his voters, his nation, or his race. We know that he is not loved by many Americans, some politicians, many ordinary citizens. The ‘birthers’ and those who want to pile doubt on President Obama’s legitimacy seem silly or offensive to many black people, in particular, and many people, in general. Easy to see why some say our moral compass is broken.
I won’t talk about the hard-to-understand movements in world politics and economics. Even experts on those fields struggle to explain. Why join them?
