Does the Obama White House replicate the African matriarchal pattern?

Is there a connection between Obama’s constant boasting of his superiority, whether in sports or in the performance of his office, and the fact that his most influential advisor is a woman and his closest friend, Valerie Jarrett, as reported at length in two recent New York Times articles? Ed H. suggests there is one.

Ed H. writes:

With Valerie Jarrett do we have another example of the huge gap between white culture and black culture? Black culture both here in the USA and in Africa is matriarchal. In Africa the women negotiate daily business, run shops in the marketplace, buy and trade, handle the money, and provide the only emotional continuity and stability in the family. Children may not know who their father is at all. If the father is present he rarely provides the family with any support, being more like another dependent. In this way the grown black male is little changed from the child. He spends his day with male friends, drinking, scheming, planning sexual conquests and boasting about his prowess. He engages is constant verbal self esteem building that crumbles as soon as it is erected. As in Africa, so in America. I would suggest that Valerie Jarrett’s central importance in the White House has nothing to do with her administrative function or her competence, which is minimal, and everything to do with the indelible black emotional/familial pattern that has been transplanted into America unchanged from the African village. She is in the White House because she brings the matriarchal structure to which Obama is so predisposed.
