Obama Not Universally Accepted By African Americans
Peter Penn

Not All African Americans Embrace Obama

Rev. James David Manning Presents An Alternative View of Senator Barack Hussein Obama

For all of the emotion coming from Pastor Manning's lips, everything he said was factually true, albeit personal. He actually spared Sen. Obama more humiliation by not discussing more important subjects.

He never spoke about Obama's connection to openly racist Minister Jeremiah Wright, or to an indicted real estate scammer Tony Rezko, or his endorsement by Lewis Farrakhan and The New Black Panther Party or his intimate association with a former fugitive bomber from The Weather Underground.

For a Post-Racial candidate whose entire platform is predicated on being race-neutral and uniting, it is troubling that he exhibits stunningly poor judgement by surrounding himself with and refusing to dis-associate himself from bigoted, xenophobic nationalists who preach Black Liberation Theology, which is unquestionably separatist.

Now we hear that his Passport records were breached. What motivated this intrusion? Why is the State Department interested in where Obama traveled abroad? What is he suspected of? What is Obama hiding now?

Where there is smoke, there is fire.

Good to hear. I know a lot and they’re not fooled once this stuff has come out.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Clinton's little black book came out to find a contract worker at the State Department to hack into O's file.

It should get interesting when the culprit is found and his or her background is checked.

I wonder if the State Department could legally access a United States Citizen's passport if there was verifiable evidence that treason was in play or if an individual was suspected on sleeping with the enemy.

I had heard several months ago that Obama had secret meetings with Iran's Great One. The story just faded into the sunset.

Interestingly enough you never hear Americans calling themselves Chinese Americans, Korean Americans, Mexican Americans, Latino Americans, Italian Americans, German Americans, etc., etc.

I haven’t visited any other Country where their citizens identify themselves by their ethnic origins.

True. My BFF is a black professional woman and she has no use for Obama. She regrets it, but she is conservative and is going to hold her nose and vote for McCain. Anything to keep a Democrat out of the White House. Other black friends feel the same way.

On the other hand, I have a black friend whose office is filled with pictures of Obama. He’s in seventh heaven about this candidacy. Then the other day I heard him complaining about his income taxes. I want to grab him by the lapels and say, What do you think your income tax return is going to look like when President Obama is shovelling 847 billion of your dollars to cure poverty in the rest of the world, you idiot?

How does Obama claim to be “African-American” anyway?

His Father was African-American, his Mother was European-American, so he is Half American, quarter European, quarter African...

Ethnicity is separate from nationality.

Joe DiMaggio was 100% American and 100% ethnically Italian.

Assuming he is not a carpetbagger, your father is 100% American but probably ethnically Southron to the core. If he is an "old" South Carolinian, he may further define himself ethnically as "Lowcountry" or a "Piedmonter".

Assuming that your mother knows an æbleskive from a hush puppy and knows that "æbleskiver" and not "æbleskivers" is the plural, she would still be ethnically Danish.

Once you are raised in California and your Southern relatives are shocked that you actually said to Aunt Holly when she offered you grits for breakfast, "What's a grit? Can I try just one of them?", then you have lost all ethnicity.

You then become

No, not universally. But 90 percent is pretty damn good.

No sir.

Because, what little I learned from my travels, anyone outside of the US who tries that (i.e. Spanish-Moroccans, German-turks, etc.) tends to get their ass kicked...

I call Obama a Kenyan American, and not an ordinary black American. I love the black American people, and I know of none so evil as Jeremiah Wright. I have been to black churches, and never once have I seen the Jeremiah Wright hatred oosing out of them.

=Not all Afro-Americans but how about Black Americans?=

Here is George Carlin's take on the problem:

Politically Correct Language "Black" vs. "African-American"

So, let me tell you how I handle some of these speech issues. First of all, I say "black." I say "black" because most black people prefer "black." I don't say "people of color." People of color sounds like something you see when you're on mushrooms. Besides, the use of people of color is dishonest. It means precisely the same as colored people. If you're not willing to say "colored people," you shouldn't be saying "people of color."

Besides, the whole idea of color is bullshit anyway. What should we call white people? "People of no color?" Isn't pink a color? In fact, white people are not really white at all, they're different shades of pink, olive, and beige. In other words, they're colored. And black people are rarely black. I see mostly different shades of brown and tan. In fact, some light-skinned black people are lighter than the darkest white people. Look how dark the people in India are. They're dark brown, but they're considered white people. What's going on here? May I see the color chart? "People of color" is an awkward, bullshit, liberal-guilt phrase that obscures meaning rather than enhancing it. Shall we call fat people, "people of size?"

By the way, I think the whole reason we're encouraged in this country to think of ourselves as "black and white" (instead of "pink and brown," which is what we are) is that black and white are complete opposites that cannot be reconciled. Black and white can never come together. Pink and brown, on the other hand, might just stand a chance of being blended, might just come together. Can't have that! Doesn't fit the plan.

I also don't say "African-American." I find it completely illogical, and furthermore it's confusing. Which part of Africa are we talking about? What about Egypt? Egypt is in Africa. Egyptians aren't black. They're like the people in India, they're dark brown white people. But they're Africans. So why wouldn't an Egyptian who becomes a U.S. citizen be an African-American? The same thing goes for the Republic of South Africa. Suppose a white racist from South Africa becomes an American citizen? Well, first of all he'd find plenty of company, but couldn't he also be called an African-American? It seems to me that a racist white South-African guy could come here and call himself African-American just to piss off black people. And, by the way, what about a black person born in South Africa who moves here and becomes a citizen? What is he? An African-South-African-American? Or a South-African-African-American?

Alright, back to this hemisphere. How about a black woman who is a citizen of Jamaica? According to P.C. doctrine, she's an African-Jamaican, right? But if she becomes a U.S. citizen, she's a Jamaican-American. And yet if one of these language crusaders saw her on the street, he'd think she was an African-American. Unless he knew her personally in which case he would have to decide between African-Jamaican-American and Jamaican-African-American. Ya know? It's just so much liberal bullshit. Labels divide people. We need fewer labels, not more.

Bill Clinton was the first black President. African Americans had no problem accept that. Now a guy who is half white and half African, that’s a problem for them.
