If you were watching CNN, BBC, Al Jazeera, and other broadcasters, then you would have heard the line that Obama is the "first Black US president" over and over again.
But if you listened closely to the platitudinal drivel he offered in his inaugural speech you would have noticed that he did not mention one word about slavery or Black slaves.
He also did not mention one word about Indians and their near extermination from the face of the country he believes God drew together.
I find this odd but quite in character for a man who frames his political being in race denial.
So yeah he is the "first Black US president" ... so what? His politics is still the wrong colour.
And so the hyped 'post-race' era begins ... with more of the same evasive lies that define that tired and crumbling republic.
