“I think it’s because he’s going to be speaking ebonics”

And Black Liberation Theology, and all the other things preached in the black churches that dont see the light of day for white people to see, hear and know.

How much time would it take to get a FoI transcript or copy of tape?

The National Newspaper Association, despite its innocuous name, is actually an association of far-left publications that includes “Final Call” — the paper published by Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam: NNPA - Article - member papers.

And that explains why Obama doesn’t want the mainstream press at this award ceremony.

That's all he's got to work with.

No substance.

Perhaps he’s going to indulge in a little anti-white racism that wouldn’t go over well outside the room. He has to be missing his Jeremiah Wright fix by now.

I think it’s because he’s going to be speaking ebonics and doesn’t want white America to see him yukking it up with the crackheads.

BINGO....He also wants to be able to make gang signs with his hands, and bump fists with people.

I thought he was proud of his heritage.....

Teleprompter must be overdue for a major overhaul by now.

Well the milage it has sustained must make for a tune up by now.

Is he afraid he’ll stick his foot in his mouth again and we might actually hear what a racist like him and his wife say behind closed doors?!

SHE's the racist, IMHO. For the most part, I don't believe he gives a chit.
