Obama says people dislike him because he is black

Washington, Jan. 20: U.S President Barack Obama has reportedly said that some people really dislike him because he is a black president.

Obama believes that while some black folks and white folks really like him, there are some who are not happy with his political stature owing to his skin colour.

The American president said that opposition to federal powers does not make one racist, however, the states’ rights supporters should acknowledge the history associated with that philosophy, which reflected southern thinking during the Civil War and the civil rights movement, News Max reported.

During U.S re-election in 2012, despite his win, Obama had a very low margin of support from whites. (ANI)
