The Huffington Post is out with a new article, which chronicles the “11 blackest moments” of the Obama Presidency. The article is aptly titled, “The 11 Blackest Moments In The Obama Presidency,” with a subhead of “Thanks, Obama!”
The article is not written ironically.
According to the article’s author, Zeba Blay, “Obama has always been in a precarious position where his blackness has been at various times a political hindrance.” There there have been numerous times when “his blackness shines through.”
Among the “blackest” moments of President Obama’s time in office, according to Blay:
When he said, “I have no more campaigns to run… I know, because I won both of them.”
And “when he did the smoothest swag walk ever after announcing Osama Bin Laden’s death.”
