During the Obama Administration many would say that race relations have deteriorated. So much so, it could be argued, that the world has taken notice. During the recent high-profile cases of the death of black men involving the police, tensions have been. Some world leaders and even terrorist organizations have weighed in on the issue. Who is taking this opportunity to take jabs at the President?

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei took to Twitter to slam the U.S. over the death of Freddie Gray and the police shootings of black men Walter Scott and Michael Brown, tweeting, “It’s ridiculous that even though US President is black, still such crimes against US blacks continue to occur.” Addressing a group of senior Iranian police officers in Tehran on Sunday, the Leader said Iran’s Police Force is the symbol of the Islamic Republic’s “sovereignty and security,” adding that the police should guarantee social security with “might,” but that such “police might” needs to be accompanied by “justice” and “mercy” toward the people.

Iranian Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s Twitter indictments continued:



Given the controversy surrounding the “Nuclear Deal” being negotiated by President Obama and Iran, one might question the motivation behind these denunciations of the President via Twitter. In light of the recent clash between President Obama and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei regarding the framework of the “Nuclear Deal” it is clear that President Obama is not negotiating from a position of power. This Twitter attack could be viewed as an attempt to further weaken what is perceived as an already weakened President. It could also be viewed as posturing in order to bolster his own weak position in the world and possibly in the deal negotiations. They say politics makes strange bedfellows, but politics AND social media make for some strange, yet oddly interesting “News” as well.
