Morgan Freeman: Obama Isn't First Black President
Brietbart ^ | July 5, 2012 | Unattributed

Posted on 07/06/2012 9:55:49 PM PDT by QT3.14

From NPR: "First thing that always pops into my head regarding our president is that all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him ... they just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white — very white American, Kansas, middle of America," Freeman said.

Took awhile for somebody on the Left to say the obvious....either ∅™ is Mulatto or Halfrican-American.

Let's see how long it takes the MSM to state it. And while there at it call ∅™ a on-call lecturer - not a law professor.

Well... he is the first anti-American President, the first illegal President, the first Socialist President, and the first President to have his temporal lobes removed.

WATCH THIS VIDEO

Look at, look, the Tea Partiers, who are controlling the Republican Party, stated, and what’s this guy’s name, Mitch O’Connell. Is that his, O’Connell?

Mitch McConnell. Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What’s, what does that, what underlines that? “Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.

Well, it just shows the weak, dark, underside of America. We’re supposed to be better than that. We really are. That’s, that’s why all those people were in tears when Obama was elected president. “Ah, look at what we are. Look at how, this is America.” You know? And then it just sort of started turning because these people surfaced like stirring up muddy water.

Obama chooses to be black. He gains more from calling himself black. he is a race hustler, just like Jackson and Sharpton.

Oh good grief. Barack Obama might be a green Martian and he would still be the most absymal, destructive president in American history. As it turns out, sadly Barack Obama does use his blackness to evil racist identity ends. But there are plenty of black people who would have made reasonable Presidents. Barack Obama isn’t one of them.

Thomas Sowell. I think he'd be an outstanding President. Unfortunately I think he's too smart to put himself through the {expletive} required to get elected.

Alan West! I would love to have an honorable, intelligent, experienced military man like Alan West who respects the constitution, calls it like he sees it, and knows and learns from history as our Commander in Chief. I hope he runs in ‘16. Would it be awesome to see TOTUS or one of that marxist ilk try to debate a real American man like that? It would be like a turtle racing a top-fuel dragster... no contest by far and the turtle would be smoked (not to be confused with choomed).

What’s the matter Freeman, the “man” has turned out to be an utter failure and NOW you say he’s not black enough? Sorry, blacks voted for the guy 99% and you own him, along with the other “guilty” whites who voted for Obama. Our first black president is an utter disaster!!

"obama is 50% WHITE...Thus not the FIRST Black President..."

From the day he ran back in 2008, I was always surprised by people celebrating a potential first black president. Is he not half white and if so, why does he not show pride in that part of his heritage?

AG Holder is obviously at least half white, if not more. But no touching him because he has some black in him. I seriously can't believe we are still such a racist nation, but I know who to blame.

Black leadership! Since it all about race to them and while they whine, let's add up all the advancements to mankind that the white race contributed versus the black race. I would bet an educated man could add on his two hands how much real and beneficial contributions the black race has benefited all the races and ethnic groups of mankind.

The blacks wouldn't let it go even with the whites moving on; they want their special treatment for some great great grand-daddy being a slave in a different world they weren't involved in. Like most welfare queens, they want some kind of reparation; they want special treatment for wrongs that wasn't even done to them.

So guess what? As a Caucasian who grew up in an area of Los Angeles with all races neighboring each other, I now declare myself a racist against black people - not asians, not latinos, not purple people, but blacks. I'm sick of their whining and wanting stuff and being the biggest part of the problem.

When I used to wear a watch, I wore it on my right hand, my writing hand. That way, when I was writing, I could see the time while I wrote. That was way back in school though, I don’t do too much writing these days!

Is it racist to say he isn’t black enough?

Obama you need some more coal in you son, Obama you should bath less, Obama you need a darker tan, Obama you should consider a full face tattoo.

In another land he would or could be called a “creamy”.

But since he is from Arabian ancestry which is Caucasian he is more white than black in most regards.

Unless the Dunhams were nothing but a nest with a booby egg and Barry boy is just a protected and nurtured son of Malcom X through the Communist Party USA.

And this from noted racist Morgan Freeman. I cannot even watch him in movies. When I see Batman all I can think about is how it must burn him that a white guy is in that mask. All his comments prove is the double standard on race, etc. Blacks get a free pass forever from the MSM.

Can you imagine the reaction to a Congressional White Caucus, a Whites for (Candidate), or a White Americans Association? Yet, every victim group gets to kick at the supporting structure of Western Civilization - white men.

White men freed the slaves, gave women the vote, and, risking all, gave America her liberty and Constitution. Why are they so hated?

It reminds me of a joke some black comedienne made early on in his presidency (I think at one of the press dinners that presidents go to every year and give a ‘funny’ speech) saying something like if he turned out to be a failure, blacks would then stop referring to him a black president.

The irony is that while it’s politically correct to refer to American blacks as African-Americans, Obama, even though not considered by the likes of Morgan Freeman to be genuinely ‘black’ anymore, is actually more legitimately an African-American than most blacks here since his father was born in Africa.
