    Mrs. Obama doesn't look too happy in the photo. She wants to know why He was looking at the barely covered dancers. There were demonstrators outside His visits asking Him to go home. These people are way off base He is home.

    White people have been in South Africa for more than 400 years. The white people formed a real society including a booming economy (it is their country). Black people have never formed a civilized society on their own without the help of white people.Why did millions of blacks (for years and years) immigrate to South Africa ? They simply wanted to benefit off of what the white man took the time to build. After the ANC (a Communist organization) took over South Africa they decided to rob, rape, and pillage everything that white people had. South Africa has the highest incidences of rape in the entire world.Envious, hateful blacks have been murdering whites (slaughtering entire families) by the thousands in South Africa . Nelson Mandela and others are on video actually singing songs about killing white people. Why in the hell haven’t we heard about all this from the Criminal, Liberal, so called “Media”??The never ending, sickening leftist propaganda in this country will only turn us eventually into another South Africa !
