I couldn’t help but think that if I was to select a person to represent my races struggles and oppressions, I would want someone who has been surrounded and influenced by the same things I was. I’m curious to know how many black people have the intellectual honesty to agree?
there has been about Obama’s mixed heritage. Black being his dominating gene… he looks the part. But was raised by his (white) mother and her (white) parents, instilling their (non-black) values and customs.
His (black, Kenyan) father played no part in his upbringing – in fact, the most dominant father-figure in his life would have been his mother’s second (Indonesian) husband.The problem I have isn’t with (Barry) Obama, but with the Democratic Party successfully pulling the cotton (not a Black reference) over everybody’s eyes. Everyone was falling over themselves trying to gloat about how change has taken place. What has actually taken place is a compromise. Our government has gone to great lengths to pacify the minorities and appease the masses – it’s very patronizing. I have been told all my life by my black friends, “You wouldn’t understand – it’s a black thing“. Does Obama understand? I don’t think Obama could relate to the average black man. You truly are a product of your environment, with a smidgeon of history mixed in. Barack Hussein Obama has no American black history – just the skin color, and that’s not enough! He can’t talk with any credibility about the struggles in Alabama and the rest of the South, about ancestors subjected to the slave trade – anything!
