Obama’s ill-advised visit to Tanzania
Washington Post ^ | June 9, 2013 | By Dana Milbank

When President Obama goes to Africa at month’s end, the first African American president will have a rare opportunity to spread U.S. values to that continent. It would be a shame if his trip instead validated slavery.

By selecting Tanzania as one of the three countries that will receive a presidential visit on that trip, the Obama administration is honoring a government that has been in a multiyear diplomatic dispute with the United States over human trafficking.

Specifically, a U.S. court in 2008 issued a $1 million judgment against a Tanzanian diplomat stationed in Washington because he and his wife held a young woman against her will as a domestic servant at their Bethesda home, refusing to pay her and abusing her for four years until she escaped. The diplomat, Alan Mzengi, didn’t contest the civil lawsuit and, instead of paying the default judgment, returned to Tanzania, where at last report he served as an adviser to President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete — the very person Obama will meet with.

The State Department has tried to pressure Kikwete’s government to get the judgment paid and to sanction diplomats who engage in human trafficking. But the efforts have produced nothing but a derisory settlement offer, and the State Department has not moved to punish Tanzania. . .

Unlike most African-Americans Obama is not a descendant of slaves. In fact, some of his ancestors on his mother's side were reportedly slave owners.

Going over to buy some house slaves, no doubt. And maybe a caddy or two.

Hmmm. Note to self: When being visited by Obama, DO NOT tell the dog “Good dog!”

Obama should stay since he has no idea what a slave is. And neither do any of the so-called descendants of slaves these days. They haven’t one iota of slave blood in them, just a lie by families for generations.

A real slave was used like an animal and beaten (ask Al Gore whose family used them). Since when has any generation of AA had anything but the same chance as anyone else in life? That is if they could get out of the hell hole known as baby momma and sperm donor instead of a father (whites also following this trend unfortunately). And pull up your damn britches if you want to find a JOB.

But what would the damn race hustlers do if they couldn’t make a living on keeping AA p*ssed off?

Replace the phrase “ill-advised” with the single word “moronic” and it’ll be closer to the truth.

Maybe he’ll ask for political asylum in Tanzania.

Too bad he doesn't have any American values.
