Barack #Obama is an #African #president

The #Tropenmuseum offers in its new exhibition "Leve de President" or Long live the President, the strongest proof yet that Barack Obama is not a true blooded American.

The exhibition is about the African tradition to honour its leaders in textile. Some 115 portrait-cloths will be on display showing the main players of recent African history from 30 African countries, going all the way from Senegal to South Africa and featuring the likes of Nelson Mandela, Mobutu Sese Seko and most significantly Barack Obama.

This picture has not been photoshopped, as a further proof we have acquired for you this photo of the portrait-cloth as it can be found on the exhibition that runs until August 29. An English language book (€ 19.50) researching the subject is available from KIT publishers featuring all these African notables and can be ordered on-line here.

Thank you and, God bless America
