By Amanuel Biedemariam,

There is nothing more disturbing and frustrating than to see the legacy of blacks and slavery evoked incorrectly or to see someone using it for cheap PR point and demean its importance. But when it is the president of the US doing it against people of an African nation on a global stage it is outright shameful.

In a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI), President Barack Obama raised the issue of human trafficking as a scourge that needs serious global attention. In his speech, President Obama likened the current global human trafficking situation to slaveryPresident Obama said that he does not evoke the word slavery lightly but to underscore the importance his administration places on human trafficking he is compelled to do so.
