Is Obama A Coon For Avoiding Nigeria?

Obama is minutely aware that Nigeria epitomises blackness. To your typical Asian or white European or American, Nigeria is the nearest thing to a potential Black Power. To get a sense of what I mean, imagine Malcolm X was alive and became the president of America. Imagine how it would play to white America if his first act were to visit Nigeria. Sure visit Ghana, ‘Ow gosh, ain Obama just so cute visiting the home of that quaint fella Nkrumah. I recon its all good. Ain Ghana just so cute with all them Kente cloths let our Obam pay’em his homage’. However, Nigeria would be a different thing. The situation in Zimbabwe and Somalia is of a different kind. Those nations could not act as a rallying point for Universal black empowerment in quite the same way that Nigeria could. When Nigeria moved into Liberia and Sierra Leone, whatever anyone thinks of the action in terms of success or failure, the reaction in the West was surprisingly one riddled with anxiety. The Nigeria interventions going on in a climate of optimism brought about by Mandela pronouncing that democracy and change was indeed now sweeping through Africa it appeared to me as if the West feared Africa might start solving African problems. I remember that one of the first things that America did in response was to scramble to create a rival intervention force in Senegal. 

If you are a black person presented with choices that might affect you in terms of race and you are having difficulty, deciding what decision to make as a black person I find it helps to apply my white supremacist test. It goes something like this, for example, Labour or Conservative who should I vote for.  Ask yourself whom would a white Supremacist vote for if he had no choice but to vote. In this instance he would vote conservative so I vote Labour.

Give a white supremacists a nuclear bomb and ask him to blow up just one African nation, chances are he would direct it at Nigeria. Place a gun to the head of a white supremacist and tell him, select one African country whose model of development he would like to see replicated throughout Africa, chances are he would select South Africa or Ghana. 

During Obama’s campaign, he steadfastly avoided eye contact with black people in crowds who rushed to congratulate or praise him. Moreover, in the instance when he did, it was as if he had devised a strategy beforehand for such awkward moments. For example, 10 seconds as the maximum time to spend in eye and finger contact with a black person before the wider American viewing public assigned him the unwanted label Black Radical.

Do not misunderstand me, I do sympathise and understand his reticence, since, ultimately, on this occasion, few would argue that the intended goal - especially in the context of African American civil rights struggle - merited the means.  However, I believe Obama remains mindful of literally being perceived as “The Black president”.  In addition, for all our grand protestations, the truth is nearer to the baser possibility that he simply avoided going to Nigeria because Nigeria’s other international image is that of an upstart black Nation.

I think too much issue is being made out of this Obama not visiting Nigeria thing.

He has his origin in Kenya but did not include Kenya in his list of to-visit countries. South Africa has equal, if not greater standing in international community than Nigeria, I did not see SA in his list.

So what's the fuss about not visiting Nigeria? I understand it sends a message, but I think the whole issue is overblown.

I suspect that LITMUS is another puppet for NIGERIA"S brain dead and inept leaders, all his claims and reasoning are just preposterous akin to those of our leaders. You dont need a rocket scientsit to show you that Nigeria is a failed state and some times i wonder why the country even recieves international recognition.

All our leaders including our parents ( at least most of them) are only interested in people being submissive to them even when there is no plausible reason to do so.

Yeye people act like he is obligated to visit Nigeria. I heard he even refused to visit Kenya until they get their leadership together. A Kenyan just told me that so this is not just against Nigeria. He is being very fair.

@ LITMUS

you are able to see what we never imagine, you re right. I strongly agree with you to some extent. But Obama is not worthy to be judge now lets wait and see what he's up to, though I never expect any miracle from him. He is truly black in colour what he is inside we never know.

His (OBAMA) not visiting Nigeria, to him might only be a signal to indicate is dissappointment in the country.

I strongly disagree with you.Obama is not a coon nor coward.Really,one would have expected the president of the most powerful state in the world to visit Nigeria first .But ,its quite unfortunate that Nigeria had lost the respect the world accord her since the wuru-wuru election conducted by professor Maurice Iwu in 2007.How on earth,do you expect the most respected, duly elected democratic president to visit a nation of no vision(s) with a stolen mandate.Youth rise up and present a candidate with good vision to lead us to the promise land.
