It seems that President Barack Obama is getting more flack from Black activists than he is from the Republican Party these days. Harry Belafonte, the actor/celebrity activist, has come out with scathing criticism of Obama and his “mission,” saying that they lack moral courage and vision.
Belafonte expressed his disappointment with the Obama administration at an event with the Television Critics Association on Thursday. He was there to discuss his HBO documentary “Sing Your Song.” We hope the 84-year-old actor is not leaning on sensationalism to help with the ratings of his new project.
Belafonte was very active during the civil rights movement, having used his celebrity to support the work of activists during the time and has remained a critic of humanitarian rights issues and U.S foreign policy issues ever since.
