RUSH: Here's Siobhan in Columbia, Mississippi. Hi, welcome, it's great to have you here. It's Open Line Friday and you're next.
CALLER: Hi. I'm so happy to finally get through to you. I have one major problem, and that's Barack Obama himself. My problem is, as a black woman, I am embarrassed to be a black-American. My grandmother is 94 years old, and I imagine that her and all of our ancestors that died and fought for what we're supposed to call freedom, this is not what they imagined of the first black president. I mean, Congress is not doing their job. They don't want to say anything that criticizes him.
RUSH: Wait. Hang on. Siobhan, hang on, hang on. You're very provocative here, and I need to pick your brain.
RUSH: 'Cause you've said a number of things about which I have questions. Your first thing, you said that you are embarrassed to be a black woman?
CALLER: Yes! To be black, period.
RUSH: You know, I happened to see the other day, some white, feminist, female professor. She taught feminist studies somewhere, and I wish I had it in front of me. I don't have it here, but she was saying how guilty she felt at being white, that she just wanted to rip her skin off and turn herself inside out.
CALLER: Oh, don't (garbled).
RUSH: She just can't stand living the life of luxury she has, given that it came on the backs of people of a different color. She's so guilty. She's so ashamed.
CALLER: (Unintelligible) That's what they want for people to feel guilty because of the fact that they're white. I mean, being white has nothing to do with. It's a matter of being educated.

Siobhan pronounced “Shayvon”
She was great.
The lady is one of the very few exceptions. More then 90% of the blacks voted for him the second time.
You see, early in life I learned to see race from the perspective of Viktor Frankl who only recognized two races: the decent and the indecent; therefore, even though we share the same skin color, Barack Obama and I are two people of entirely different races. So, no. I'm not embarrassed by Obama in the least.
I heard her on Rush. What a breath of fresh air.
I believe that is the correct Irish pronunciation of Siobhan. Did she speak with a Mississippi brogue?
Everybody on the planet should collectively be embarassed that any person of such obviously lacking character where there is obviously no there there can possibly be elected to a position of such prestige and influence twice.
No, but she was fairly well spoken if I recall correctly.
Odd that the southern language tends to be based on the Kings English but is looked upon as colloquial.
Still, you understand her wider point.
I heard this today and this woman was great!
Nausea. Yeah, that about covers it.
We could turn that into a saying.
Something about the content of one’s character, rather than the color of one’s skin.
True colorblindness. May we all get there someday.
“Siobhan” - Irish for “Joan” meaning “God Is Gracious.”
In the Irish it is actually pronounced: Shiv - awn.
You’d think I would now my gaelic better.
póg mo thóin
Thanks for the invitation but, NO thanks.
My late mother armed us kids with “Pogue Mahone.” Thanks for the memories! ; )
I’m just an Irish mutt.
No offense taken. And thank you for your service, Sailor!
