African New Yorkers Critical of Obama
In this video above from African Spotlight, Africans and a Dominican share their opinions about President Barack Obama and his policies — and they have plenty of gripes.
Guinean Hassan Sadou doesn’t like Obama’s embrace of gay marriage, questioning the wisdom of his “quote-unquote” civil rights achievement and saying the president could have “sat back and left it alone the way the other presidents did.”
Dominican Gabriel Diaz criticizes the foreign policies of the nation’s first black president, calling it “very Bush-like” and noting the “proliferation of military bases around the African region.”
Sadou regrets that Obama didn’t “jump on immigration.” While on the same subject, Diaz says that in his first term, the president has “deported more nationals back to their home countries than Bush has in his eight years” and uses legislation like the DREAM Act to find “political cover.”
