Does Obama Hate Black People?

With his actions as an Illinois state senator, U.S. senator, and now president, Barack Obama has rightfully earned his title as the most pro-abortion politician in American history, but a congressional report asserts that his advocacy for a new abortion policy in his "home country of Kenya" (according to Michelle Obama) may have broken the law.
A federal probe into whether the Obama Administration broke federal laws by promoting a proposed constitution that radically changes abortion policy in Kenya was requested by three high ranking lawmakers with congressional oversight responsibilities.
In a letter to Inspectors General (IG) of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Government Accountability Office (GAO), Reps. Chris Smith (NJ-04), Darrell Issa (CA-49) and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-18) said: "Kenya's new proposed constitution, which will be subject to a public referendum in August 2010, includes two articles that, if adopted, would enshrine a new constitutional right to abortion in Kenya and dramatically change Kenya's abortion law."
The lawmakers wrote, "The Obama Administration's advocacy in support of Kenya's proposed constitution may constitute a serious violation of the Siljander Amendment and, as such, may be subject to civil and criminal penalties under the Antideficiency Act.
"Kenya's current constitution includes no reference to abortion and abortion is not legally permitted in Kenya except to save the life of the mother."
Under the Siljander Amendment, no funds for foreign assistance may be used to lobby for or against abortion, and Smith has discovered that the Obama Administration has spent over $10 million to promote the new Kenyan constitution. When Iranians took to the streets to oppose the fraudulent re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, it was Obama who didn't want to be seen as "meddling", but apparently that non-meddling policy doesn't apply to Kenya.
Granted, one of Obama's first decisions following his inauguration as the nation's 44th president was a repeal of the "Mexico City policy" - which prohibited the use of U.S. taxpayer money to fund international pro-abortion groups - but, one has to question why he's so interested in changing abortion policy specifically in Kenya.
Kanye West can't be here with us today, so in his place, I'll make the same assertion that the loudmouth rapper famously asserted about George W. Bush; Obama hates black people.
The president has expanded the welfare state, the unemployment rolls, and advocated against school voucher programs, all issues which disproportionately affect blacks. His position on abortion is perhaps the most alarming because it has become evident that he is using all the resources available to him to ensure that black babies here and abroad never reach their first breath.
Yet, in the midst of all of these issues, Black Americans continue to blindly support the president and his radical agenda.
As Dr. Alveda King -- niece of a real black leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.-- once said, "The great irony, is that abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of."
Obama massages and kisses the foreheads of his black children each night as he tucks them in for bed, but then he leaves the room and thinks about the black "human weeds" of the world, who should never receive the same affection; he's apparently even willing to break the law to see to it.
