What is the name of the President of America, known all over the world. It is not surprising, because this state has been a world hegemon for several decades, predetermining the trends of cultural, political and economic development of the rest of the progressive world. The President of America is one of the most important people in world geopolitics: with his sanctions, active, silent or covert participation, the largest military operations of our time, coups d'état, billion-dollar loans, economic blockades and so on are carried out. At the same time, Barack Obama drew even more attention to his personality, which can be explained not only by his position. A century and a half after the abolition of slavery and fifty years after mass demonstrations for the political and civil equality of blacks, today, the first "black" president of America has appeared.
