After Obama gave them the 'choices have consequences' treatment on their Brexit plans, he is now under attack, no kid gloves, for being a Kenyan....

A bitter row has broken out in Britain over what some UK politicians have termed a racist remark concerning President Barack Obama and his Kenyan background.

The row followed comments made by the Mayor of London Boris Johnson to Mr Obama during the US president's visit in the UK this week.

Mr Johnson suggested that Obama’s views regarding US government’s preference for Britain remaining part of the European Union was tainted by his Kenyan heritage.

He noted that Mr Obama had a bust of Winston Churchill removed from the Oval Office because he is “part-Kenyan” and has an “ancestral dislike” for Britain.


His views were echoed by far-right leader Nigel Farage, the head of the UK Independence party, who suggested that Mr Obama’s views could not be trusted because of his Kenyan background.

A dignified Mr Obama did not respond to the slurs but said he had always been a fan of Sir Winston Churchill.

To hell with these mabeberu kwani mkenya hawezi make an inteligent view. Wanafikiria light skin colour equals brains
The joke here is that Boris Johnson was humpty-dumpty sitting on the wall on the Brexit issue.

He knows that Cameron's career depends on a YES vote, but he vacillated for a long time before announcing that he would back the NO side. His hope is that Cameron is kicked out if the pro-Brexit forces win, and then he can take his place at No. 10 Downing Street. His anger at Obama is personal because Obama may just have tipped that 50-50 scale....

But it's not even a 50-50 scale.
The majority of poles have had the 'no' camp at 60 or above.
As for Boris taking Cameron's place, there's absolutely no chance. Cameron himself has said that he will stay on regardless of the outcome. And even if Cameron was to leave in the case of a Brexit win, Boris Johnson is still not his immediate successor. The Chancellor, George Osborne, would be the one most likely to replace him.
His anger at Obama is just a pitiful attempt at rebuttal.
But it seems Boris doesn't have a good economic rebuttal so he has to try and paint it as a case of Obama wanting the worst for Britain due to his father being Kenyan.

At the point of Boris's choosing a side, the YES/NO balance was just about even. His succession plan may not be immediate, but everybody knows that his ambition is to take the ultimate price eventually.

As for why he attacked Obama, I do not think that there can be doubt that he senses the threat that an endorsement for YES by a weighty ally poses.

Kenyans have a right to be very mad. The number of Kenyans (mainly Kikuyu, Embu, Meru) who were castrated and killed are uncountable. Are we supposed to move on and forget?

yaani some shiny eyes were nipped in the nut?
Many Kenyans, mostly GEMA were murdered and we're not allowed to talk about it. We're not allowed to express our displeasure. It was clearly a genocide. Where are our Holocaust-type museums and blockbuster Holocaust movies? No one knows the exact figure; official estimates are 32 colonists and 35-50,000 Kenyans died.
