Unexpected Titles in Jakarta – Obama is the Black Hitler
Travel brings plenty of unexpected surprises and this was one that hit me from out of left field. I would never in a million years have expected to see these books in a Jakarta English language book store and yet – there they were.
By the way, just for clarity – I like Obama and hate Hitler and would never think to bring the two into the same sentence, let alone the same book title. I admit, the idea of buying the book crossed my mind but the idea of having a Hitler book or a book that compared Obama and Hitler was so repugnant that I left the book where it lay and couldn’t even bring myself to touch it.
