Yes, this is primitive and stupid, but I don´t think it´s racist. How does it ´denigrate race´? Everybody has primitive tribal roots, it´s a fact. Just because he wouldn´t say that about a white president doesn´t mean anything, because only europeans are whites. To me it just shows ignorance.

 

 Of course it is blatant racism if he did in fact say it. How anyone could say otherwise is amazing, also this guy is apparently in charge of foreign affairs.{#lang_emotions_scared}

First of all I am not sure why this is racist?

 

Quoting CANLI

 lol,because that is what is it ...a racist comment,he was refering to his roots in Africa,labeling them by being cannibals there.

And coming from politician,its far for being tactic.

 

Not a tactful comment certainly but whoever said that cannibals only lived in Africa?  Following courtesy of the beloved Wikepedia!

 

Cannibalism (from Spanish caníbal, in connection with cannibalism among the Antillean Caribs)[1], also called anthropophagy (from Greek: ἄνθρωπος, anthropos, "human being"; and φαγειν, phagein, "to eat") is the act or practice of humans eating other humans. In zoology, the term "cannibalism" is extended to refer to any species consuming members of its own kind (see cannibalism (zoology)).

Neanderthals are believed to have practiced cannibalism.[2] [3] Among modern humans it has been practiced by various groups;[4] In the past in Prehistoric Europe,[5][6] Africa,[7] South America,[8] New Zealand,[9] North America,[10] Australia,[11] Solomon Islands,[12] New Caledonia,[13] New Guinea,[14] India,[15] Sumatra,[16] and Fiji,[17] usually in rituals connected to tribal warfare. Fiji was once known as the ´Cannibal Isles´. Evidence of cannibalism has been found in the Chaco Canyon ruins of the Anasazi culture

 

(Maybe he was referring to Obama´s maternal grandfather????)

BNP is quite a predictable outcome of the islamization through saudi money in europe. I believe it is going to get much worse.
