President Barack Obama has claimed that despite of being the world’s most powerful personality, the president of USA, even he faced racism during his two tenures in the White House, reported US media.
Obama said; “Are there folks whose primary concern about me has been that I seem foreign – the other? Are those who champion the birther movement feeding off of bias? Absolutely.”
Not naming the president-elect, however, Donald Trump reignited the birther movement and advised that President Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate was fraudulent.
US President said that even though he did not see racism according to the way he was treated in the mainstream, but he was aware of it in the fringes.
“I think there’s a reason attitudes about my presidency among whites in northern states are very different from whites in southern states,” he added.
