An interesting E-mail exchange:
"I found something strange, but dont know if its important or not. Barack is the ANGLICIZED, (WHITE,) version of Barak. obama Sr. never used the name Barack. I found a government document he wrote after he had already gone back to Kenya. His name was BARAK, not Barack. Every article now written about him contains the Anglicized version of his name because that is the name Barack Obama GAVE HIMSELF. It was NOT the name his father used."
