Skip to comments.Morgan Freeman: Obama Isn't First Black President
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.

I though Ben Nighthorse Campbell beat her to the PowWow.
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!
Does this mean we can now criticize him and his policies without being accused of being racist?
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?
How long will it take to find out he’s a muslim, or a non citizen. Of coarse this to has to come from thier side to be believed becuase anything coming from the other side would be RACIST
He’s a half-assed light bulb that only makes the future look dim.
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.
I don't suppose Freeman will ever wake up to the realization that race is an artificial construct. We're all mixed "race". It's as if we demarcated people based on height; "the 6 foot or better race", the "4 and under race".
By the standard of Elizabeth Warren’s deeming herself Native American, Obama is surely white as is Michelle Obama because of her long lost white ancestors.
I see it as an attempt to distance black people from the First Black President’s stench. You won’t get away with it Freeman, if that was your intent. You own it. We know it.
As far as I understand his “race”, Obama is even 25% black. His father was more than 50% Arabic.
In Morgan Freeman’s reality it is probably the guy from 24.
I think Morgan Freeman changed some after he caught flack for pulling a Woody Allen (2009) and also after playing Nelson Mandela in Invictus (2009). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1057500/
