A Black Agenda Radio commentary by BAR executive e
ditor Glen Ford
Obama likes to pretend that he is a deeply spiritual man, but he
failed to sneak past the white gods of retribution when it appeared
Obama paid insufficient homage to the greatness of the American
historical legacy. The Senator thought he could sneak his way between
the National White American Gods, most of them slaveholders and
Indian-killers, and the Black guardians of American’s true history
of genocide, chattel slavery and constant aggressive war. Obama got
caught by both sides, and wound up mumbling gibberish about holding a
dialogue between irreconcilable belief systems. In fact, Obama has
maneuvered himself into a position of irrelevance to both sides.
