Nah, that's too clever by half. Obama's point is to show that America--a country full of the white people he was taught to hate by his mentor of 20+ years, Jeremiah "God Damn America" Wright--is subservient and inferior to the Other: the non-white, the non-Christian, the non-Western.

Come to think of it, Obama himself is non-white, non-Christian, and non-Western. Is it any wonder he likes them more than he likes us?


You miss the point. He was not bowing to the Emperor of Japan. He was trying to show that he did NOT bow to the Saudi king because of his religion. By that, I mean the religion both Obama and the Saudi king share.


Not actually correct protocol for foreign heads of state meeting with the Japanese emperor. See




America-hating Obama debases the US symbolically by, as its leader, degrading himself to a non-white non-Western leader.

But it's not the first time, then is it?
