A videotape of school children singing a song about President Barack Obama is causing an uproar amongst conservatives bloggers and other media outlets.
The tape, which can be seen here is of a Black History Month program featuring author and speaker Charisse Carney-Nunes who visited the B. Bernice Young Elementary School in Burlington, New Jersey. Nunes is the author of the highly-successful children book “I Am Barack Obama.”
Someone recently posted the tape online and several well-known conservative bloggers said this is proof of an organized effort to teach school kids to praise and worship Obama.
The Burlington Township School District released a statement stating that the activity was set to “honor the contributions of African Americans to our country.”
Carney-Nunes, a graduate of Lincoln University and law school classmate of Obama, has yet to comment.
