Obama...Bit racist?

Millions of voters in the US are outraged that their new president, Barrack Obama, is actually a little bit ethnic, a poll has revealed.

Mr. Obama, who won the exclusive accolade of being first African-American president was, apparently wrongly voted in as voters were only made aware of his ethnicity via a barrage of media stories making a point of it, but only AFTER the election.

One member of the British press, who wished to remain anonymous did have this to say. "It is essentially bollocks. We've been banging out stories about the fact that he's black for ages. If anything it seems like the only reason he got into the White House in the first place. Quite why every news agency in the world had to reiterate the fact that he was black post election just serves as a detriment to his policies which are excellent. And with all due respect to the US public, why the fuck did we have to put up with 8 years of printing 'Bush is stupid' stories, when 'Obama is black' is so much more controversial and easier to write puns on!"

SO it seems that, while some people may not have noticed the Mr. Obama was black, the majority of people DID realise the groundbreaking significance of both Obama's policies, and his ethnicity; and therefore we would like some substance in our news stories, and not merely to be reminded that the guy is a little bit racial.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
