Itís official: Obama is black (Obama throws his white side under the bus)
MSNBC ^ | 4/3/2010 | msnbc

Posted on 04/03/2010 6:19:55 AM PDT by tobyhill

He may be the world's foremost mixed-race leader, but when it came to the official government head count, President Barack Obama gave only one answer to the question about his ethnic background: African-American.

The White House confirmed Friday that Obama did not check multiple boxes on his U.S. Census form, or choose the option that allows him to elaborate on his racial heritage. He ticked the box that says "Black, African Am., or Negro."

"It’s official: Obama is black.."

So, who that is not in a coma didn't already know this, and have it rubbed in their face hundreds of times? Besides, it's not the color...it's the attitude.

yep...he's black alright.

Then he lied on the census and should be held responsible.

I think the powers that be would hold him responsible if he ever told the truth. It’d be a shorter trial, that’s for sure.

Everything he does is for the “minority community” even though he always claims it's for the middle class and for all races.

My personal theory is that the Hawaii long form has is race as “white”, and that is why he is keeping it sealed. Better to be thought of as Kenyan than white.

What more can be said, but by his own words.

Obama would write in “Dreams...,” — “I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.”

Abandoned by his father and shipped off by his mother to his white grandparents, Barry Soetoro is enrolled in the Punahou School, begins the search for his “blackness,” and becomes Barack Hussein Obama.

“I learned to slip back and forth between my black and white worlds,” he wrote in “Dreams.” “One of those tricks I had learned: People were satisfied so long as you were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves. They were more than satisfied; they were relieved — such a pleasant surprise to find a well-mannered young black man who didn’t seem angry all the time.”

Obama wrote that in high school, he and a black friend would sometimes speak disparagingly “about white folks this or white folks that, and I would suddenly remember my mother’s smile, and the words that I spoke would seem awkward and false.”

As a result, he concluded that “certain whites could be excluded from the general category of our distrust.”

At Columbia, Obama disapproved of what he called “half-breeds” who gravitated toward whites instead of blacks. And yet after college, he once fell in love with a white woman, only to push her away when he concluded he would have to assimilate into her world, not the other way around.

“We were always playing on the white man’s court — by the white man’s rules. If the principal, or the coach, or a teacher wanted to spit in your face, he could, because he had the power and you didn’t. The only thing you could choose was withdrawal into a smaller and smaller coil of rage.”

Obama once described the white race as “that ghostly figure that haunted black dreams.”

Will we hold him responsible for the mountain of lies he’s fed us since he was sworn in?

Hating whitey is no longer political...

It’s policy.

"Everything he does is for the “minority community” "

It's been my observation over 64 years that the bulk of black politicians are that way; the black community is the prism through which they see the world, and they have totally bought into the "victim" myth and probably played on that big time to get elected.

That's why I avoid black politicians, they are blantently and arrogantly racist and try to run a "government within a government", i.e. the black "caucus"...Congress' little NAACP.

America will not work unless the people are united, and the leftist progressives and liberals do everything they can to keep us divided.

IMHO most black politicians have an agenda, either power, perks, or position/prestigue in the black community, and NOT America as a whole.

But, bear in mind that white politicians are supposed to serve everyone equally or all hell breaks loose.

Don’t you know the old rules? If you have ONE DROP of Negro blood in you, you are officially “black”.

Well, that’s the way it was years ago. Remember the old 1930s black movies? White girl falls for black man. Can’t get married till it is revealed the white girl has ONE FROP of black blood in her past.

There used to be a joke about a —— in the wood pile somewhere.

There is a $500 fine for falsifying information on the form.

There is no getting away from it. He has a white Mom so it does not matter how dark or light his skin is or if his hair is straight or curly - he is half Black and Half white.

The other side of this story is why is he ashamed of being half white?

Only a cracker wouldn’t understand his shame about having white blood!

You may have thought blood was red, but Obama is more of a racist than George Wallace was. And WHITE = evil oppressor.

He may have been embarrassed by his pastor, but he truly believes what the Rev White preaches...at least, as long as the Rev Wright only mentioned the name of Jesus as a curse. Obama hates whites and Jews, and he was perfectly at home in the Chicago church.

Here is what has become The Oath of the Hypocrite. US Constitution Article 2 section 1,reads

“Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

I checked white but I refused to answer the Hispanic question.

I would have checked owned my own home, but when I saw the options were Free & Clear or a Mortgage, I passed. Not their business.

His white mother and white grandparents raised him. All his father gave him was a single haploid cell so he's black.

Here is an interesting video taken January 2, 2009. One only needs to listen to the first 20 seconds to hear Michelle's interesting statement about “home country”. What do you think Michelle meant by her statement?

Many African-Americans don't accept him as one of their own - they say he is "a white man in black face", or "white power in black face".

Barack Obama's Lost Years

The senator's tenure as a state legislator reveals him to be an old-fashioned, big government, race-conscious liberal. ~ by Stanley Kurtz Weekly Standard 08/11/2008, Volume 013, Issue 45

"...Obama's fight to unify the black caucus on the casino vote was undertaken in partnership with state senator Donne Trotter. Yet nearly every biographical account of Obama lavishes attention on Trotter's claim that Obama was just a "white man in black face." The significance of that bit of campaign hype, offered while Trotter was running against Obama for Congress, has been exaggerated, perhaps because Trotter's epithet helps to defuse the notion that Obama himself practices race-based politics. Yet Obama does exactly that. His public legislative cooperation with Trotter, and with other black Illinois politicians, yields more insight into Obama's political plans than any electoral rhetoric or private intra-black-caucus backbiting. To the extent that Obama can be accused of having shaky "black credentials," that very accusation pushes him to practice race-conscious politics all the more energetically. ..." bttt

BO is justified in checking "negro" instead of "mixed race" or, more accurately, "mulatto" -- if:

1. You label him, as the Left/Democrats always label people, by the color of his skin (BO is dark-skinned, so he qualifies); or,

2. You agree with the philosophy of Democrat senator Robert Byrd's former organization, the Ku Klux Klan, where he was a recruiter that one drop of black blood makes a person a negro (BO is at least 10% black, so he qualifies); or,

3. You follow the teachings of his racist former preacher who said BO was called a "n....", presumably by other types of racists than Rev. Wright.
