Morrissey: “Obama seems to be white inside.”


Never one to shy away from making an opinion that will ultimately piss off a big segment of The Glastonbury Festival 2011 - Day Twosociety, Morrissey has offered his thoughts on American President Barrack Obama during an interview with Alternative Nation.

Shortly after praising politically-themed songs like Bob Dylan’s “The Time’s They Are a-Changin'” and Edwin Starr’s “War,” Morrissey was asked about his current feelings about Obama. To which he replied:

“Obama has mystified me because he doesn’t appear to support black people when they need it most… Ferguson being an obvious example. If Michael Brown had instead been one of Obama’s daughters, I don’t think Obama would be insisting that the nation support the so-called security forces! How can they be called security forces if they make the people feel insecure? Obama seems to be white inside. There is an obvious racial division in America and it’s exploding and Obama doesn’t ever support the innocent black people who are murdered by white police officers who are never held accountable. You would expect him to be more understanding of what it means to be black. But so far, he hasn’t been.​ There’s no point in continually saying that we must support the police when it is obvious to the entire world that the police in America are out of control.”

To clarify, Alternative Nation states that Morrissey once genuinely said “God Bless Barrack Obama” many years ago. Boy, his feelings really did a lot of changin’.
