It seems like only yesterday President Obama was throwing the race card around with reckless abandon. Well, actually, it has been a little while. However, election season is just around the corner, but his R-card was not actually being used within the confines of the United States.

President Obama was on walk-a-about, as Crocodile Dundee might say. For the rest of us, he was on a trip. According to Fox News, he made a trip out to India two weeks ago, and managed to inject his views of American Racism into a speech he made on his trip.

He “gently nudged” the country of India to fulfill their constitutional duty to uphold the “dignity of the individual”. Of course, that is what the Obama administration believes in “individualism”. However, he was not speaking of individualism as you might think. Like everything else with President Obama, it is either race or politics. He is like a machine with two settings. So considering he is in a foreign country, you can obviously guess which one he is speaking about.

Apparently, to identify with the problem he sought to quell, he brought up his own “experience as a minority”. What might that be? His American dream that brought him from a young black American with a single mother, to millionaire, to a two term American president?

Nay. He did mention he had “extraordinary opportunities”. You know like living in Hawaii and getting put through Harvard. Unfortunately, as aforementioned, he has two settings.

"There were moments in my life where I've been treated differently because of the color of my skin."

The president spoke on the idea of religious tolerance, despite most of his policies are crushing Christians in America, in some way or another. He brought up “persistent false rumors” that he is a Muslim, instead of his claims to being a Christian. Although, he did word it oddly.

"There have been times where my faith has at times been questioned by people who don't know me, or they've said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing."

This is in a country where equality is “enshrined” in their constitution, yet harassment and violence has plagued women and religious minorities. A horrific gang rape on a moving bus in the heart of New Delhi in 2012, sparked protests, which in turn sparked more stringent laws.

Regardless of the president thinks, I can't imagine there were many who felt any kinship with the American president. Especially, if they are aware of his own record on freedom and the individual in America.
