(Disclosure: I wrote an article for The Canadian National Newspaper several years ago, but the paper ended its relationship with me when they realized I was a skeptic rather than a believer.)
What do you see... a black god at the bottom with an eagle over its head. The only black leader in the world whose symbol of power is the eagle happens to be US President Obama. Now this sounds odd, however if you look at the upper right hand part of the Dresden Codex page you will notice a silhouette of what looks like a woman… not just any woman. It looks like Michelle Obama, President Obama's wife.
I don't frankly see how we get from "black god" to Obama, who, last I checked, was not a deity. What does that make the brown god directly above with the snake hat? Logically, I suppose, this must be the President of Mexico, who is Latino ("brown") and leads a country whose coat of arms has a snake on it. But if we want to be technical about it, the president of Namibia, who is also black, also has an "eagle" as a symbol of power, appearing as it does on the Namibian coat of arms as well as the Namibian presidential flag. Waring makes the same mistake as Afrocentrist writers in presuming that the color of the Maya gods reflects racial skin tones. But the Maya also had blue and green gods. What were they? Note, too, Barack Obama is classified as "black" under the U.S. custom of hypodescent, but in other cultures would not be so identified, nor is there any evidence of Maya identification of races based on skin color.
But, anyway, would you like to see this prophecy of President Obama? Of course you would. Here it is:
The actual upper right hand corner of this codex page is heavily damaged. There is no image present in the extant leaf. The overall scene, by the way, is not the world of 2012 but is a depiction of the Maya Flood myth, when the gods tried to drown humanity with water. Those blue lines around the figures are the waters, as is obvious from the complete scene, which you can view here.
