His ancestors were not slaves. (actually they were slave owners).
Obama's grandfather and father never had to deal with what black American fathers and grandfathers dealt with. If Obama's an American he's a first generation American.
I'm willing to bet that the black American dialect he uses sometimes is not his real way of talking. The first time I heard Barack Obama speak was when listening to the radio. I thought he was a white guy until I heard more about him.
What I do know about black Americans is this. They do NOT like African immigrants. Especially those from the horn. Somalis and black Americans hate each other.
I've had some black Americans tell me that.
Also, you've heard about the Somalis in Maine? Well, the easy social programs is only part of what attracted them here. Several Somali co-workers have expressed their dislike of black Americans to me.
"You know why many Somalis like Maine and come here from Colombus, Ohio and from Atlanta?" one asked me. "Too many black people there - black Americans" He made a face of disgust when he said that. I can't even understand them when they talk he added.
Yeah, black Americans voted for Obama but only because of skin color. No deeper than that. They know Obama is not of the same culture as the typical black American.
They are still all going to vote for him. So what does it matter?
I hope this story gets media coverage this morning.
I wish someone would publish the computer layering “code” so that all curious hacker types could see for themselves. Then they could be “interviewed” explaining how easily it was done. Perhaps there would be code somewhere to link to a computer or server. If people all over the country were seeing how it was done there might be more traction to the story.
The other thing is the DNA. Get some DNA from one of the so called Obama Sr. relatives and run it. It should be an easy check.
