America has had her first black President. Voters loved him, crying out for race equality as they ostensibly voted for him on skin color.
He was a hero to blacks across America as a leader, rising above to represent America’s poor, unwashed, and forgotten. He brought us ‘hope and change’. He was a black leader, a role model for young black men and women to look up to.
Except, he’s not black. He’s bi-racial.
Personally, I could really give 2 hoots if Obama is black, white, mixed or purple with pink stripes-it’s his politics that are absolutely KILLING me.
However, there is a little hidden interview that not many have seen- until now. During his Senate race, his own mother-in-law expressed her discomfort with whom her daughter picked to marry- and it will blow you away when you hear what she had to say. The disgusting story is reported from nydailynews.com:
Long before Michelle Obama became First Lady, her mother had misgivings about her marrying a young man named Barack Obama — because he was biracial.
In a Chicago TV interview that aired during Obama’s 2004 U.S. Senate campaign — and newly resurrected by Michelle Obama biographer Peter Slevin in a book due out next month — Marion Robinson confessed to being “a little bit” wary about her future son-in-law being the product of a white mom and black dad.
But it could’ve been worse, according to Robinson.
“That didn’t concern me as much as had he been completely white,” Robinson laughed in the appearance on WTTW’s “Chicago Tonight,” which was scarcely noticed at the time.
“I guess that I worry about races mixing because of the difficulty — not for, so much for prejudice or anything,” Robinson continued. “It’s just very hard.”
Slevin’s forthcoming biography, “Michelle Obama: A Life,” doesn’t suggest those concerns spurred Robinson to oppose the union.
To the contrary, writes Slevin, a veteran Washington Post correspondent who now teaches journalism at Northwestern University’s Medill School: “Marian, no pushover, was favorably impressed with Barack.”
Yes, please, no race mixing. Let’s repost all those signs around the South, shall we? Let’s repeal all the integration laws, and the Civil Rights Act. Yup. Oh and your granddaughters? They are 1/4 white. ‘Too hard’ to accept? Yea, didn’t think so.
What would happen if the tables were turned? What would America THINK if a white person had DARED speak like this? They would be branded, and hung on a cross from which they could never get down, with public beatings daily. But Obama’s family? No problem, let’s just sweep this under the rug along with all the other petty things like ISIS. Or blame George W. That sounds good. Let’s do that.
