A population with more than 300 millions, 72 percent white and 13 percent black people with hard memories of slavery and colored discrimination for this minority.

“wrong side of history” Obama likes to use this expression very often. See

Abraham Lincoln’s farewell address February 11, 1861 in Springfield, Illinois before departing to Washington

Abraham Lincoln (From Alexander Gardner –

My friends, no one, not in my situation, can appreciate my feeling of sadness at this parting. To this place and the kindness of these people, I owe everything. Here I have lived a quarter of a century, and have passed from a young to an old man. Here my children have been born, and one is buried. I now leave, not knowing when, or whether ever, I may return, with a task before me greater than that which rested upon Washington. Without the assistance of that Divine Being who ever attended him, I cannot succeed. With that assistance I cannot fail. Trusting in Him who can go with me, and remain with you, and be everywhere for good, let us confidently hope that all will yet be well. To His care commending you, as I hope in your prayers you will commend me, I bid you an affectionate farewell.
