Since when it the President of the United States of America referred to as Mr. The media, yes even NPR, has been saying "Mr. Obama" throughout his presidency.
That's President Obama! Mr. President maybe, but not Mr. Obama. Never again will he be Mr. Obama.
It's blatantly ignorant to disrespect the office of the President of the United States of America this way.
Even G.W. (that's G-Dubya) was President Bush and remains so, so what gives.
In my opinion, there has been a renewed, powerful wave of racism in the country that began with the financial difficulties. People are often more racist when their finances are precarious.
The media should be above such foolishness.
