I came across this video surfing the web a while ago. I put off watching it, and finally decided to check it out today:
First off, this video is hilarious! This is one of the better impersonations of President of Obama I’ve seen since he became president. Now, I know what some of you are thinking:
“I’m so appalled!”
“This sets black people back xx amount of years…”
“This is ignorant.”
“How could someone make such an ignorant video?!”

“That they used it to be so sarcastic; it was almost a form of disrespect.”
“That’s not a positive image for us, period, as African-Americans, where we came from, where we’re going today.”
Ohhhhh reallllllyyyyyy now?!
Here’s the video that the Baracka Flocka Flame parody video is based on:
And here’s explicit version of the original song in case you couldn’t fill in the blanks in the video above:
Yeah… I’m sure Waka Flocka’s song/video are positive images of African-Americans, where we came from, and where we’re going today…
What do you think? Are you offended by the parody of Waka Flocka/President Obama? Did you find the video funny? Thoughts?
