I remember reading somewhere that the gpa was the one to intro the dear leader to Frank Marshall Davis so that gives some credibility and weight to the claim that gpa was a fricken commie.
Frank Marshall Davis, alleged Communist, was early influence on Barack Obama
He knew Stan real well, said Dawna Weatherly-Williams, a close friend of Mr Davis Theyd play Scrabble and drink and crack jokes and crack jokes and argue. Frank always won and he was always very braggadocio about it too. It was all jocular. They didnt get polluted drunk. And Frank never really did drugs, though he and Stan would smoke pot together.
While his mother was in Indonesia during part of his teenage years, Mr Obama lived with his white grandparents. Mrs Weatherly-Williams said that the poet was first introduced to the future Democratic presidential candidate in 1970 at the age of 10.
Stan had been promising to bring Barry by because we all had that in common - Franks kids were half-white, Stans grandson was half-black and my son was half-black. We all had that in common and we all really enjoyed it. We got a real kick out of reality.
