This is the story of a dinner party.
It occurred in a suburban middle-class community maybe slightly upscale middle class, but not much just outside one of our big cities. Pretty typical place.
The guests all knew each other. They were neighbors or friends or acquaintances whod been to these parties many times. They were white, every one, mostly businessmen and their wives, and some engineers who work or once worked in the nearby defense industries.
The postdinner conversation was the usual stuff whos moving in, whos moving out. Anybody heard from Ralph since he moved to Wisconsin? Nobody had. No surprise. Ralph wouldnt tell you if your coat was on fire.
It was about at that point, as the conversation edged warily toward the touchy subject of politics, that one fellow a bit of a curmudgeon asked if anybody thought President Obama had not been born in America.
You could have heard a cocktail napkin drop.
For a moment, no one said a thing. People looked at one another. Then a lady who had moved to the area from Virginia raised her hand. I do, she said. One by one other hands were raised until it was clear most of guests thought Obama had not been born here.
Nobody said anything. Nobody had to. The verdict was clear. But apparently not entirely clear to the questioner. He pressed on. Does anyone think Obamas a Muslim? he asked.
By now it was evident the questions made some guests uncomfortable. This guy was casting a pall over our good time. But he wouldnt quit. Anybody think Obamas a Muslim? he asked. And again most of those present raised their hands.
The president, they were convinced, or said they were, is indeed a Muslim...

Good point, it was a boatload of white, gun-totin’, bible-thumpin’ racists that voted for the empty suit that stood between the fake greek columns and read stuff about hope-an-change off the teleprompter.
What I didn't like about Obama once I sensed his insincerity was that he would cause racial strife and possibly set us back as far as being able to respect a qualified black candidate. It seems I may have been right.
I also hoped that a conservative black would have the ability to make a greater percentage of the black population realize how they have been mislead by liberal political marketing and come to believe in their own self worth rather than government reliance. It now looks like that outcome will be a long time coming.
ALL Americans are uneasy with an America hating COMMUNIST in the White House!
It seems the author has written a piece of fiction to make a point. Obviously he can’t find real people to quote to make his point.
is white America still uneasy w/a black man in the White House?
Hell no; never was. But, we’ve been very uneasy over is having a Marxist Muslim in the White House.
that showed us how many racists still exist (among Dems), yet want redemption
owebama is a halfrican. He is NOT a black American. We really don’t know who he is or where he came from. We do know WHAT he is, and that is the problem.
Heerman Cain, Allen West, Thomas Sowell - those guys are black AMERICANS. I’d vote for any of them because, most importantly, the are Americans first and black second. I’d NEVER vote for owebama.
For the last effing time, we aren’t comfortable with a SOCIALIST in the white house.
I thought so as well.....another ‘STORY’.
I too have a story. About a p-resident who sealed his records the day after the inauguration and signed an executive order, just for good measure, in addition to protection from a private law firm to boot.
Could not care less what color, except for Red. Don’t send us any more communists.
its his cracker 1/2 that bothers me and his 1/4 arab...
This “white guy” is more than a little uneasy with a statist/collectivist in the White House.
How about Allen West? Oh wait...he can’t be black, he’s a conservative!
It is a fear tactic and a smear tactic. Play the race card. It's all the stooge has.
"One advantage of defeating Barack Obama in November, apart from saving the country from financial ruin and the rest, is that conservatives will presumably be able to criticize liberal policies without automatically being accused of racism."
Lying about racism is a moral failing on par with racism.
Same as false claims of rape.
Goebbels would be proud. History needs to mark this ugly period in our history. McCarthy was tarred and feathered for less.
For a man who claimed he’d unite this country, he has done nothing to reach across the aisle and govern from the center. He has strictly demonized those who oppose him.
My guess is that America white, brown, black, pink, and chartreuse is uneasy with an incompetent in the WH who happens to be half black.
