Of course it is, Kerouac. Barak Obama was not a "Kenyan" just like the cute little boy at the end. He was a US citizen from an educated background (though his mother was not particularly rich) and also had significant southeast Asian links, making him an enviable "global person".
But I do hope the Kenyan people in the video will be able to make an appeal for aid in securing a better life.
I just read the article there. Have you noticed that the kids' and parents' dreams mostly consist of big cars and money? Perhaps it would be better if the Kenyan government made an effort on education and health care rather than paying huge salaries to politicians.
I was in Kenya in 2003, just after some elections and everyone I talked to told me they hoped that corruption would be cleaned up. Well, it hasn't happened.
Yes, that is their idea of being "president". It meant being big, rich and powerful, and far removed from the ideals of liberation of the decolonization era. Of course these are little kids, but they are repeating what adults say and aspire to around them.
Just like here. In a news report today it seems as if some Africans are getting fed up with their lazy fellow communities at always complaining about living in a littered and rundown environment because "Nobody comes to clean up the mess". These are communities which have been given free houses, free water, and pay nothing for garbage collection....which is why it's never collected. The miffed person writing the article said it's high time people started to clean-up their own mess and encourage others to get off their backsides and do something about their living conditions because our corrupt officials are too busy spending our taxpayers money on frivolities instead of health care & schooling - and that's the way it will always be. They way of the 3rd World.
