Morrissey "Obama “seems to be white inside.”"

-Says that his nephews have never tasted meat and the issue of needing to eat meat for protein is a myth

-Says People that feed their children chicken are feeding them growth hormones

-Thinks people will eventually realize eating meat is as dangerous as smoking tobacco

-Cancelling concerts because the venue does not go vegetarian is not a problem for him, was disappointed that no one cared a venue for a concert he did in Sweden closed Mc Donalds for the night

-Thinks that rap has scared American whites, though he does not get inspired by it. American political songs are important to his life.

-Even though he has been "locked out of mainstream considerations" he thinks that he and Billie Holliday are comparable and in good company

-Stood by past criticism of Hilary Clinton, but thinks she's a definite for the presidency due to lack of competition.

-Thinks that Hilary won't change much as a female president because if she doesn't do well she will block any future women from taking the lead a la Margaret Thatcher

-"Obama has mystified me because he doesn’t appear to support black people when they need it most… Ferguson being an obvious example. If Michael Brown had instead been one of Obama’s daughters, I don’t think Obama would be insisting that the nation support the so-called security forces! How can they be called security forces if they make the people feel insecure? Obama seems to be white inside. There is an obvious racial division in America and it’s exploding and Obama doesn’t ever support the innocent black people who are murdered by white police officers who are never held accountable. You would expect him to be more understanding of what it means to be black. But so far, he hasn’t been.​ There’s no point in continually saying that we must support the police when it is obvious to the entire world that the police in America are out of control."

-Has a book in the works, no idea when it will be out

-Knew Brandon Flowers from the Killers was stalking him, but doesn't mind

-Is a fan of The Killer's cover of “Why Don’t You Find Out For Yourself”

Mods, since the Obama section is a direct quote I think it should be ok.
