Waka Flocka says Obama isn’t the ‘real’ first black president

Waka Flocka Flame recently came under first when he suggested that Barack Obama is not the “real” first black president.

“Can’t wait to see the day America gets a real black president because Obama don’t count!” he tweeted out, later adding, “When will America get a president that don’t see race or money?”

After he got a lot of kickback for his views, the reality star posted a statement trying to clarify his position:

Clearly I love our prez and chief. I just think that america as a whole thought it was time for a black president. It was similar to what was expected in the civil rights evolutionary chain. When I stated that I can’t wait until we get a real black president, I meant a black president who is accepted by all who just happens to be black. I do think obama is for the people, I don’t think the people of america were fully about his administration. He was elected into office then had to fight for his agenda at every turn. Bush didn’t. Obama was handcuffed by the same government that was in place to support him. The media can make this about me or they can make it about change in this election year. I said it, I explained it, now I’m done.
