My image of Onyango, faint as it was, had always been of an autocratic mana cruel man, perhaps. But I had also imagined him an independent man, a man of his people, opposed to white rule What Granny had told us scrambled that image completely, causing ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House nigger.
In one of the most remarkable passages in Barack Obama's "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance," he uses the terms "collaborator," "Uncle Tom," and "House nigger" to describe someone he detests. That someone, it turns out, is his own grandfather! We have a striking phenomenon here: the first African American president using the N-word, and to refer to his own grandfather! Ordinarily this would be occasion for massive comment and analysis, but if there has been any, I am not aware of it.
So what could possibly cause the president to describe his own grandfather in this appalling way? The answer, it turns out, provides an important insight into Obamas character. The president is not the healer and unifier that he said he was four years ago. Rather, he views people who disagree with himincluding members of his own familyin terms of ideological kinship or betrayal. And by Obamas standard, even his own grandfather is an ideological sellout deserving of insults and abuse.

Media: Chirp, chirp.
Is it that he feels privileged because he is black?
I think he was quoting his white grandmother.
Why do I use it to describe obama?
I think he put words in her mouth.
Of course, I don't know how much respect I would have had for the father of a married man that impregnated my teenage daughter.
In my opinion, that make Barack Obama a racist, no different than Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Cornell West and all the others who chastise Black Republicans the same way Obama describes his grandfather.
Why? Because he is a self-absorbed POS.
