Skip to comments.Obama’s Half-Brother: ‘Barack Thought I Was Too White’
Posted on 12/20/2013 10:08:20 AM PST by grundle
In an interview with AP, President Obamas half-brother, Mark Obama Ndesandjo, described his relationship with his brother as cold and stated that when the two first met in Kenya in 1988, Barack thought I was too white, and I thought he was too black.
AP conducted the interview as a lead up to Ndesandjos autobiography that, in part, highlights the alcohol-fueled domestic abuse he experienced under Barack Obama Sr.
As in his first book, Ndesandjo wanted to raise awareness of domestic abuse by using his family's story, although he said in an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday that the president's relatives have not universally welcomed his airing of private matters in public. Ndesandjo spoke ahead of a news conference to launch the book in Guangzhou on Thursday.
The book also touches on the sporadic but intense encounters with his half-brother, Barack, a relationship Ndesandjo describes as currently cold:
Right now it's cold, and I think part of the reason is because of my writing. My writing has alienated some people in my family.
Ndesandjo told AP that this tension with Barack started immediately. When he first met his half-brother in Kenya in 1988, the two did not see to eye to eye, particularly in regard to their racial identities:
Barack thought I was too white, and I thought he was too black. He was an American searching for his African roots, I was a Kenyan, I'm an American but I was living in Kenya, searching for my white roots.
However, despite the current tensions, Ndesandjo hopes to eventually reconcile the distant relationship with his half-brother, saying,
I hope that my brother and I can really hug each other after he's president and we can be a family again.

They’re both racists? Who knew?
I thought Sr. wasn’t around....period. What’s this abuse thing?
His base sho don’t.
He’s better looking than BHO, Jr.
I like this guy better then his brother
I tell people I only despise the WHITE half of Obama anyway. They don’t know how to respond
Interesting. Bill Clinton, too. You know, the last Democrat president before 0bama.
He wasn’t around in the U.S. for Barack but was, unfortunately, for his half brother in Kenya. Unfortunate for both, actually. Gotta agree with the poster above: Obama, Sr. should have been born sterile.
In sum, the Kenyan brother knew his homeland was a sh**hole and respected the West and wanted to get to the USA, where he could make the most of his talents.
Barack, his American half-brother, grew up in the USA, and as a typical, spoiled, American leftist, looked down on the west and hated his own country.
How many half- brothers does he have?
He looks kinda Middle Eastern.
LOL. How could anyone be too white for Obama. It’s a miracle he’s even considered black. He hates black people and black culture. He’s been president for 5 years and he has done nothing to help blacks and a lot to hurt them.
Yes, and he doesn't look like the devil.
Where da white wimmin at?
