What does his fsther's past have to do with him? If your father is a Muslim, then you must be labelled a Muslim even if you practice another religion? Is Islam a race? Unless the columnist can show that Barack himself is a Muslim who is pretending to be Christian (not his father, siblings, etc.) , then this is silly. The goat herder lie is the only one that is interesting to me, sort of like Edward's "son of a mill worker" claim when his father was the manager.

I agree. It's like Schwartzenegger's Father being a Nazi. So what?

Well, if it was not so bad, then why did he want to hide his past? Why doctor your bio?

I've been exchanging private e-mails here with an Osama supporter who is obsessed with promoting the idea that "Osama" is an "African" name and that his father was not Mohammedan.

The Osama supporters must believe that this would damage him.

I agree.

I'd like to know if his family owned(s) slaves and if he benefited from affirmative action. I would like to see the end of A.A. and think it bad enough that people who's ancestors were never slaves benefit from it. If his ancestors ever owned slaves, and he benefited from A.A., that, well, if I said what I'm thinking I'd be band.
