The US president, Barack Obama, has launched an unprecedented defence of gay rights in Africa,
telling Kenya’s president that the state has no right to punish people because of “who they love”.

Obama, visiting his late father’s homeland for the first time as US president, confronted Uhuru
Kenyatta and millions of Kenyans watching on television with his “unequivocal” views. Homosexual
acts are illegal in Kenya and surveys show nine in 10 people find them unacceptable.

Obama’s comments were swiftly criticised by Irungu Kang’ata, an MP in Kenyatta’s governing party.
“They are in bad taste,” he said. “It’s a breach of the principle of sovereignty and equality of states.
What if Kenyatta goes to America and says it should abolish the death penalty? Or for example it is
like Obama goes to London or Madrid or The Hague or even Japan and says your monarchy is
oppressive and a waste of money and should be done away with. In the same manner he can’t come to
Kenya to tell us things that are unacceptable.”

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
