Try looking at your 3rd grade yearbook and you'll be surprised at how many memories come back. Yes, even of kids who were only in your class part of the year. And no photographic memory is required.
Besides, this kid remembering Barry isn't at all strange, especially since there probably weren't too many black kids in that school at the time.
What's REALLY strange is how so few who say they remember him during ALL his years in school have actually come forward...
The Indonesians most definitely aren’t Chinese. A lot of Chinese (as a result of centuries of trade and colonization from South China, but mostly from the mass emigration from south China in the 19th-20th centuries) live there as a cultural and racial minority, and there is considerable intermixing, but the native peoples are quite distinct in appearance, general aspect and facial features.
Leave aside all theories of origin, they just do not look Chinese. Spend some time in Asia and you will gain the ability to judge origins from appearances. The Asian kid in this photo looks distinctively Japanese, though he could at a stretch pass as Chinese, probably from North China.
Probably not so great on the inside given his childhood, but he sure is cute on the outside.
Are you sure those cheap Kodak cams took professional pictures like this one ? this picture looks like it was taken with a better cam than a Kodak...
. . . . Check out a couple of comments:
And you keep ignorantly conflating citizen with NBC
Did this one get pulled...
or am I the only one who can’t see it?
Try right clicking, then click Open. In case that doesn’t work here is the entire post:
Add to your list....
Barry Soetoros legal name change to Barack Hussein Obama.
The B/C passed off on the net as Barrys can not be his legal B/C. At age six he was adopted, his legal b/c would not have Obama Sr. listed as the father, Lolo Soetoro Mangunharjo would be.
Barry could go into court an legally change his name; he could not go into any court and have his adoption reversed. Legally, Soetoro is his father.
Wheres the B/C Dear Leader?

Tried right clicking and it still didn’t work. Wonder why? Message said the document doesn’t exist on this server.
Thanks for posting it!
There were lots of cameras around in those days that could take a picture as sharp as this. Any decent 35mm rangefinder (available in the millions by 1969) could, just to start. My old Argus “brick” certainly can, and there were 2 million made of those.
“from former link in this thread”
This may have been from the still widely distributed April Fool's hoax story. I would welcome an actual currently live link!
Link please! (Indonesia school registration entry doesn't count for me)
Bump for later
just received this note by e-mail FWIW:
“..... that is another photo-shopped picture. I opened it and it was done by the notorious Ducky that put together so many of the other fake ones. Info from the 3rd grade picture properties is:

This picture is from 3rd grade. Obama was only there part of the year.
But apparently they also went to kindergarten together, which would make sense if he stayed with his grandparents and they didn't move.
Good luck finding Scott. Cross-racial IDs can be tough.
there’s a very fuzzy image of a letter supposedly from the WH in relation to that image.
Has anyone been able to read the contents?
btw, I have had that image of the two boys saved in my collection since October 4.
What context was the picture you saved in?
I’m unsure of the context, it may have been from the above article, although I see no date.
I do not know how to ‘open’ the image I have saved, but ‘properties’ shows I saved in on October 4.
is this number that appears in ‘properties’ significant?
