One, a black man cannot show anger in public lest he be considered an Angry Black Man.

Obama, the semi-angry black man. Two, to suggest that a black man has any feminine characteristics, even when framed as an "evolutionary achievement," is to emasculate and reduce him to a figure from Jim Crow days.

Gosh, Obama, AC/DC??

Who in that position is allowed to show excessive anger? I don't remember seeing Bush show excessive anger, regardless of the Gotcha Media's pressure on him. And, Laura Bush's demeanor was Stepford Wife-like. She knew better.

And they were both white, by the way.

Sounds like Mark Morford, minus two people’s worth of brainpower. And no, that doesn’t mean Morford has a brain.

As my Post colleague Jonathan Capehart wrote on the PostPartisan blog — and explained to me in a telephone conversation — black men are held to a different standard than whites. They are practiced in keeping their emotions under wraps. They can’t “go off,” as some have urged Obama to do in response to the gulf oil spill.

American culture is complicated, and gender expectations play an important part.

Damn,she bought into the deconstructionism they taught her in Literature class. First, in standard English, the word is S-E-X, not "Gender" (unless used to denote a linguistic terms, or perhaps as a jocularity. Cf. Fowler's Modern English Usage, 2nd Edition). Second, there is nothing uniquely American about expectations regarding the male and female sex. The same folks who want to tell us that the tendency towards sexual deviancy is hard-wired in our genes also have the nerve to tell us that Y-chromosomes are just a handy hat-rack to hang some cultural expectations on.

Basic differences between males and females are evident in every higher animal. In mankind, it is present in every developed culture, though sometimes inverted when the culture is in decay (not just today, either. For instance read what Herodotus has to say about the Egyptians).

"Gender expectations" (I am employing the term as a jocularity) play an important part because men sire children and women bear them. If you get that wrong on a large scale, civilization ends.

This whack job needs to put down the tube of airplane glue and open a window.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

Obama elected to employ a certain type of rhetoric in the Oval Office that put him in line with feminine rhetorical traditions and at odds with historical precedent and the expectations for his gender. Such a choice ultimately may prove to be a crucial step forward toward a better world. But the backlash against his rhetoric suggests we're not there yet.

Speaking as a cousin, and a not-so-sensitive columnist-citizen, I'm pulling for him to do better.

Katleen, you are an idiot, and I regret spending my valuable time reading your strange diatribe.

Obama's policies have not much to do with his rhetoric, but have a lot to do with his purposely destructive mindset and world view. Every policy that his administration enacts works to bring this country down. If you can't see the facts for what they, and instead focus on his style, you are more stupid than I ever imagined.  Live and learn, I guess.

Her prior column made some valid and surprising points
( considering it was penned by Parker ) about Barry’s overt passivity , his lack of interest in the Gulf spill and his feminine traits.
Obviously, someone read her the riot act -
perhaps her new bosses at CNN and thus this mushy mea culpa
to her cousin.
She quotes Jonathan Capehart of the WaPo telling her that black men have to hide their emotions.
Capehart is a gay black man and he appears to be very effeminate when he shows up on MSNBC.
He is excusing Barry’s flat affect and femininelike passivity as a racial characteristic.
But, Barry is half white and that side is equally zombielike.
Barry is often devoid of emotion even when he’s
with his kids and Michelle.
The healthy father to child, husband to wife dynamic is absent with Barry.
He looks like he’s just going through the motions.
Patients with NPD are often disconnected and emotionless.
Barry’s abnormal behavior is finally being recognized
by the media , but,
it is being rationalized and covered up
instead of identified as a symptom of his Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

“— black men are held to a different standard than whites. They are practiced in keeping their emotions under wraps.”

That one seems to be backwards.

It seems that she’s saying a display of emotionalism would be more important than achieving results. Sounds like a liberal.

If anyone cares about Obama’s gender identity, take a look at the photo that accompanies the article. He’s going to make Clinton forget Lewinsky.
