• Byron Allen Calls Obama a ‘White President in Black Face’

    It’s always a news story any time a black public figure criticizes Obama and the job he’s doing as president.

    Of course there are times when criticism of Obama warrants news coverage, like when Jesse Jackson said he “wants to cut” Obama’s “nuts off” for “talking down to black people.” There’s a saying in the news business: If it bleeds it leads. And a nationally recognized black activist saying he wants to chop off Obama’s balls definitely deserved all the media coverage it could get.

    Nevertheless, the criticisms of Obama are always amusing and quite entertaining to me because of how intellectually dishonest and disjointed they always are.

    The latest of such harsh critique for Obama comes from a famed black TV producer.

    Here’s how TMZ covered this latest controversy:

    TV mega-mogul Byron Allen trashed President Obama Saturday night, essentially calling him an Uncle Tom, accusing him of not acting “like a black man.”

    Allen, a major TV producer who often programs for minority audiences, said he was outraged Obama referred to the Baltimore rioters as “thugs.”

    Allen warned Obama, “remember who you are,” telling him, “It’s OK to be President and a black man.”

    And then Allen goes for the jugular, saying Obama is a “white President in black face.”

    There was a lot of handwringing over the fact that Obama and other black leaders, like Baltimore’s mayor, described that city’s recent rioters as “thugs.” Those upset with Obama, as Allen noted, are perturbed because the last thing the first black president needs to be seen doing is calling people who display thuggish behavior thugs.

    It’s like I said, laughable.
