As mentioned previously, the African Colonial theory seems a little overdrawn to the Volgi. But, wow, was he pleasantly surprised at the quoted remarks President Obama delivered to African leaders saying, “Hey, colonialism’s just an excuse at this point. Knock it off and get your act together.” That is an impressively hard truth delivered with no regard to his popularity in the room (though he’s not risking any popularity on the streets of Africa). It’s not quite Nixon to China, but it’s pretty good.
It’s also one at odds with Obama’s otherwise academic-theoretical view of the world. My guess is affection for his father’s Kenya and the manifest shafting his Luo dad got at the hands of (Kikuyu) Jomo Kenyatta have left him with an sharped appreciation of the self-generated troubles of African post-colonial nations. The Volgi is pleasantly surprised and counts this as a point against his “Third-Worldist Intellectual” theory.
Don’t ask impertinent questions like that jackass Adept Lu.
