    OMG. People are stupid. That is normal with hair cuts, especially with black men. It’s probably the way he’s brushing his hair. SMH.

    You know there’s always a conspiracy that President Obama is not a human being. I’m so serious. People believe he’s a reptile/lizard.

    If these people that are putting this nonsense out really understood Black hair, they would not become a part of this foolishness. Why no one has asked why his beautiful wavy hair stays completely in place…remember, curly hair never stay put in all races. No these not-so-smart people want to label it as “brain surgery”. I think it is called a “skull cap”. It is worn at night by Black men to keep that beautiful hair in place. Sometimes the skull cap has seams in them, thus causing the hair to separate where the seam is. Last year, while in Hawaii after leaving the gym, President Obama had his skull cap on on. Please, silly people, cross over and try to learn about other people besides yourselves.

    I read about this in Britain’s ‘Daily Mail’ many days ago and I was brought to tears because the article induced a tirade of abuse towards the president by it’s well known rather racist right wingers. They made comments like ”this is proof that this man has no brain”, ”I’m not surprised that he had brain surgery, he is been very stupid and an idiot”….the comments were apparently moderated but to my surprise, 99% of them were very negative and abusive. There are these individuals who just have personal hate for the president, they don’t dare respect him and It upsets me a lot. In most cases it is not about his policies but the color of his skin and the fact that is an intelligent black man with so much power. I don’t mean to bring race into it but like I said, the first time I saw this, it was meant to incite abuse towards the President and it came in form of his race. This news paper started it all.

    I also read this article in the Daily Mail. It is a right wing jingoistic rag disguising its self as a semi serious newspaper. My family read this paper but I gave up on it long ago. I did however see this article and it also upset me. The disrespect towards President Obama is heartbreaking. i really do not understand why there is so much hatered towards him. I get it from people I used to be close to too who give me a hard time for supporting him. When I directly ask what it is they don’t like about him they can not give me a direct reply. I can only assume from their general attitude towards people of different races that it is racially motivated which as hard as it has been I have distanced myself from them.

    When are these people going to give that wonderful man a break and appreciate him for all the good he has done both for America and for the rest of the world. I know I am extremely biassed towards President Obama – I love the man – but I also dislike hatred and prejudice.

    Sorry for the rant, I don’t usually get this mad but this is just crazy!

      Hi sam uk. I understand your feelings, but let’s just be frank. It IS about race- pure and simple. And the reason it seems so abounding is that most of the entire world have not ever seen a very successful black man with so much power as we have here in the U.S. The entire world has been conditioned for centuries to demonize black people, hence the ready acceptance of black and brown slavery. That travesty has left an indelible mark on the world’s psyche. Why do you think it is so tempting for dark people of many countries to want to commit to bleaching their skin? The belief in caucasian white superiority is very pervasive. Question: does England still, in 2011, celebrate “Darky Day”? I read something about this phenomenon a couple of years ago and was quite stunned that something like this would be publicly celebrated in this modern age. It seems to parallel the celebration of the Confederacy in these United States, which is nothing if not the total acceptance and longing for a state of slavery and holding black people “in our place”.

        Thanks for your reply and I appreciate your comments. It makes me sick to my stomach the amount of overt racism in the world. President Obama is by far the hardest working and highest achieving president in my lifetime yet he is not being given the credit and I do believe that it is in part if not mostly due to the fact that he is bi-racial/black.

        In answer to your question as to whether England still “celebrate Darky Day” I have not heard of it where I live. I live in a culturally diverse area so it is not something that I’ve ever been aware of. What I do know is that there has been an increase in demonstrations by far right wing hate groups and counter demos by those of us who dislike their beliefs/actions.
        Don’t get me wrong I am all for freedom of speech but I can not tolerate bigotry and will stand against it and I am bringing my son up in the same way. Even at the age of 9 he stood up in his class and defended a black child who had been verbally racially abused by another child and earned himself a detention for his efforts (and an apology from the head teacher in assembly when she was made aware of the circumstances around his ‘disruptive’ behaviour.)

        i guess what I am trying to say in a very awkward way is that I agree with your assessment on race and I strongly believe that it is a travesty that this kind of bigotry is rife in the world. I was never naive enough to believe that the election of President Obama would usher in a post racial era but I still hope, pray and long for the day when the color of our skin or the name of the deity to whom we pray will no longer devide us. As I believe was stated in the Declaration of Independance ‘we were all created equal’

          Beautiful reply sam. This is how I brought up my son- with the history of our (AA) people, but with knowledge that we are all created equal by one Creator, and whosoever dare to deny this, sins against the Creator. So, there are a whole lot of folk going home one day to answer for their hatred. It is the worst cancer in society leading to death, suffering, mediocrity, poverty, cultural annihilation, land depravity, hunger, disease….the very things the Creator scorns are the very same things man cherishes for his own ego. So fleeting.

            Hi EDP4BHO

            I was raised in the UK till I was 25 and I have never heard of anything called “Darky Day” There is racism but it’s not officially condoned. For the most part racism is practiced by the most uneducated and uninformed. Pretty much the same as here. (look at the contents of the Daily Mail and you’ll get an indication of who reads it).

        I went back and forth on whether to watch it or not kelly and edp4bho. I ended up watching it and I glad I did. Anderson Cooper stands up for the President and says over and over again how ridiculous this all is.

      Shirley, I am feeling you. Sometimes I wish the Lord would arrive and take us all out of the misery caused by such evil. One thing’s for sure. The arrival of one Barack Hussein Obama, Barack meaning “blessed one”, has pulled the curtain on everyone, and I believe for the first time atleast in my lifetime, has shown the true hearts of man (and woman). It’s so surreal. Look at the enormous hatred coupled oddly with the enormous love, all for and toward one man. Just one man. Makes you wonder sometimes, what is really going on.

    Thanks for the heads up guys, didn’t bother watching this either. It is the US media so I would believe that they’d give air time to this non-story. Glad I missed the daily mail story on this, my heart couldn’t take all that crap.

    The UK Daily Mail used to be a relatively ‘serious’ right wing newspaper, but for a long time it’s been nothing more than a tabloid rag nicknamed ‘The Daily Wail’ or ‘The Daily Heil’ because of its relentless fear-mongering about immigration, etc.

    They are not above lifting entire pieces about President Obama from WND.

    Ignore them. President Obama’s personal popularity is still high in various parts of Europe, including in UK (excluding RW hate groups, etc) 😉

      Glad to hear that Twinx. I’ll be visiting the UK later this year and I don’t want to have to get into any fist fights defending the President! (that’s a joke – I’m a very short middle aged lady!)

        President Obama is still very popular here in the UK. Obviously there are those who disagree with him and other ingnorant people who hate him because of his race but in general he is very popular.

        I have had many discussions and debates with people who for the most part just want to know more about him and know that I have been a long time supporter and who know that I will look at all sides of a debate before making any kind of judgement or opinion. I have also had straight up verbal fights with others who diss him without finding out facts – including members of my own family.

        Coco222 I hope you enjoy your visit to the UK as much as I did my visit to the USA 10 years ago, it was amazing! Whilst on the subject of visits I CAN’T WAIT for your wonderful President’s state visit next month. Hopefully I will be able to get near where he will be. (Yes I know I sound like a teenage groupie instead of a middle aged slightly frumpy lady!- I can’t help it I just love the guy!)Lol!

          I’m so looking forward to the coverage of the President’s visit to the UK and Ireland. I completely understand the teenage groupie thing. I’m right there with you on that! I hope you catch a sighting!

          by the way.. my name had been showing as Coco222 recently for mysterious reasons I don’t understand but my usual name here is Walking on Sunshine.
