Skip to comments.Obama racial stereotypes, falsehoods flourish (Spoon Gagger)
Posted on 03/30/2009 12:34:25 AM PDT by pissant
In a country long divided by race, Barack Obama argues that Americans generally have been colorblind in judging him. Yet old racial stereotypes and Internet-fueled falsehoods flourish about the first black president.
In Obama's first two months in office, a New York tabloid took heat over a cartoon appearing to portray the president as a monkey; a California mayor resigned after distributing a picture of watermelons on the White House lawn; and an e-mail making the rounds refers to Obama as "the magic mulatto," with exaggerated ears and nose.
Disproved and disputed claims about his religion and citizenship, namely untruths that Obama is a Muslim and isn't U.S.-born, zip across chatrooms and dominate the blogosphere. Fringe critics largely are responsible for perpetuating the lies, but even elected officials have raised them.

So, have the authors of this seen his birth certificate ?
For starters, he is only half-black at most, no matter who his daddy is.
So, have the authors of this seen his birth certificate ?
Must have, not to mention all those church records, school documents, etc. proving he has been a regular Sunday-go-to-meeting type.
No. They just buy his line of BS, hook, line and sinker

And a gay crack whore, to boot.
I know. Only in libtards’ and Rev. Al’s imaginations was it referring to Ears. Why would the Post insult a chimp that way?
Did the author say WHAT "falsehoods" were flourishing? (Yes, I'm too lazy to go read it...)
“For starters, he is only half-black at most, no matter who his daddy is.”
There are lots of dark skinned people who would produce a child with his skin tone who are *not* “black”.
I wouldn’t bet $5 on what race his daddy was.
I was going to tear this apart but by the time I got to the third paragraph I realized it would take all night and MOST Freepers know these things already.
Total, utter birdcage lining.
If I were a moderator I would remove this rank garbage.
One thing this guy has going for him, he was the first President in the history of the office we knew (and know) less about than any other to hold it. Most people on the street know more about Bristol Palin’s vagina than this BHO guy. Exactly as the far-left, America & Conservative-hating media wanted it, and why it remains so scary.
and ironically, ‘chimp’ was Bush’s #1 nickname....so now it is offensive?
Me neither, but It seems as if he is getting lighter on some of the magazine covers at the checkout...Not enough time out in the sun at the free rock concerts?
Barack Obama is so white, he makes Dave Chappelle look like Paul Mooney.
disrespecting a president is now so whacky and unpatriotic. During the Bush administration it was the brave and patriotic thing to do. Now with Obama, you have to be some kind of f-ing American-hating kook not to worship the ground Obama walks on. How dare someone criticize him!
“In Obama’s first two months in office, ...and an e-mail making the rounds refers to Obama as “the magic mulatto,” with exaggerated ears and nose.”
Write this down in your little journalism books:
Obama with exaggerated ears and nose - RACIST!
Bush with exaggerated ears and nose - HILARIOUS!
The only racists are the poverty pimping Obama and his gang of rabble rousing commie dirtballs.
Somebody posted shots of his various stages of “tan lines”.
He is, in his “raw state” a rather ashen/grayish-beige color.
I see lots of little biracial kinds at Wal-Mart and have yet to see one with that peculiarly strange skin tone.
His alleged father was seriously and truly ~black~.
Of all the variations of biracial couples I’ve seen, I have NEVER seen a man that dark produce a child that light.
It’s a mystery.
My guess would be Arabic or possibly Cuban...but hey, what do I know?
I’m just a devout observer of the human race....:)
Too rich to be a mere mulatto....more of a mulatte’.
That’s funny. I agree.
“Anybody gone into Whole Foods lately and see what they charge for arugula?”
I heard he had live goldfish in the heels of his shoes.
LOL, I remember seeing those.
I don’t even know WTH “arugula” *is*....LOL
[maybe he could find a good cow pasture and pick up some ‘poke salit’, dandelion and plantain, instead]
OMG....you survived the “disco era”, didn’t you?....:))
[so did I but I’ll never be quite the same]
And any black who held public office that have failed-RACIST
Hey, he’s only what, one-eighth black anyway?
Actually, I know more about BHO's MOM'S v@gina, after seeing the naked photos of her on the Net.
Discuss: The President's mother posed for nude photos, which are now disbursed far and wide, and yet the MSM is silent on this topic, as if everybody was doing it, and it's the norm. WTF?
Ah, yes... the mothership.
! This has eluded me until now. Unbelievable.
You can’t see the portal to the Obama manufacturing center though. Unless he was as I suspect, a butt baby.
No. His father might have some Arab blood but he was far too dark-skinned and African looking to be only 1/4 black.
I survived, but just barely.
He might be Malcolm Little’s (Malcolm X) boy after all, I seem to recall he was fairly light. “Ashy” isn’t good (for him), it usually means someone has a serious medical problem. (I saw it when patients were going into shock when I was VFD/EMS, and it was considered an indicator.)
That’s a terrible insult to Mr. Hankey. He at least brings joy and laughter to millions.
I guess the party line is “it’s not her”. Sure does look just like her although the face in the nude photos is shaped in a slightly more attractive manner than other Stan Dunham pictures.
Are we taking bets?
Nobody seemed to react when I said Zero’s birth certificate line for “father” just had an “x” instead of a name.
I was not implying his real father was “unknown” or “illiterate”.
I can’t think of *anything* that would be as damaging as that particular “little revelation” to provoke him to go to such insane lengths to hide it.
Call me crazy.
I no longer care.
I looked at the photos out of purely academic interest up, down and sideways. I am 98% certain that the naked lady in those photos is the same human that was purported to be BHO’s mother.
Not me. Maybe we'lll all end up on the same ward (or in the same 'camp'), but there is a reason the Usurper won't cut loose with the paperwork.
Either he is ineligible, or people would not have voted for him based on the relations exposed there.
Otherwise, he'd produce the documents.
At this point, enough doubt has been established (and enough time passed to carefully research, forge, and 'age' documents) that I'm not sure I'd believe the dog-eared originals if they were placed in my hand and they showed nothing amiss.
Purported? You don’t think she is? I see a resemblance.
