THIS IS OUR PRESIDENT
Everyone of voting age should read these two books. Don't buy them, get them from the library before they are removed from the shelves.
From Dreams of My Father: 'I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.'
From Dreams of My Father : 'I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'There was something about her that made me wary, a little too sure of herself, maybe and white.
From Dreams of My Father: 'It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names.'
From Dreams of My Father: 'I never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man, son of Africa , that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself: the attributes of Martin and Malcolm,
DuBois and Mandela.'
And FINALLY, and most scary!
From Audacity of Hope: 'I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.'
These are his words straight from his books!
Perhaps jetboogieman you may care to explain these words from the Messiah's books, books he wrote prior to becoming President?
What you're having a problem with is accepting the struggle that mixed-race children DO have. If we weren't a racist/slave whipping country in the past they wouldn't HAVE these problems.
I don't think you could ever imagine what it's like being scorned by your peers because of you're parent's race(s) - nor do I think you really want to understand what it's like.
People like you flipping out over their inner-struggle aren't helping (and it's not just black/white mixed children who go through this, mind you) It's really a sad problem and instead of understanding you're actually building up a blind wall which only makes it worse for them.
What are mix-race children suppose to do and feel when their peers - black and white - reject them for skin-deep issues?
Do you prefer that they never express their feelings and just bottle them up - ignore it?
Sometimes it's important to talk about these things - more important than you are capable of comprehending. It's not RACIST to discuss your childhood race-problems. It is IMMATURE, however, to freak out when someone decides to voice what was on their minds when they were 10 or 15.
Accept it - blacks and whites marry and have children and their children will endure serious race issues throughout their entire LIVES and nothing you say will change that.

Whitwashing Black Racism
Why haven't national media outlets reported on the vile and violent rants of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) thugs whose 2008 voter intimidation tactics got a pass from the Obama administration? Simple: Radical black racism doesn't fit the Hope and Change narrative. There's no way to shoehorn Bush-bashing into the story. And, let's face it, exposing the inflammatory rhetoric of the left does nothing to help liberal editors and reporters fulfill their true calling -- embarrassing the right.
This week, Justice Department whistleblower J. Christian Adams came forward with damning public testimony about how Obama officials believe "civil rights law should not be enforced in a race-neutral manner, and should never be enforced against blacks or other national minorities." In the wake of Adams' expose on how the Obama DOJ abandoned default judgments against the NBPP bullies for the sake of politically correct racial politics, a shocking video clip of one of the lead defendants in the Philadelphia voter intimidation case resurfaced on the Internet. It shows bloodthirsty King Samir Shabazz during a 2009 National Geographic documentary interview spewing:
"You want freedom? You're gonna have to kill some crackers! You're gonna have to kill some of their babies!"
These NBPP death threats and white-bashing diatribes are nothing new to those who have tracked the black supremacy movement. In August 2009, nearly a year ago, I reported on a sign on display outside NBPP defendant (and elected member of Philadelphia's 14th Ward Democratic Committee) Jerry Jackson's home. It reads: "COLORED ONLY: No Whites Allowed." In July 2009, I interviewed poll watcher/witness Christopher Hill, whom Shabazz and Jackson called "cracker" several times while Shabazz brandished his baton.
"They physically attempted to block me," Hill recounted. He also saw a group of elderly ladies walk away from the polling site without voting while the duo preened in front of the entrance. "If you're a poll watcher, you shouldn't be dressed in paramilitary garb," Hill said, as he wondered aloud at what would have happened if he had showed up in the same sort of costume.
In May 2009, I reported on the affidavit of civil rights attorney and poll watcher Bartle Bull, who witnessed the NBPP thuggery in Philadelphia and reported on billy club-wielding Shabazz's election day boast: "You're about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."
In the fall of 2008, just days before he showed up to hector white poll workers, Shabazz told the Philadelphia Inquirer:
"I'm about the total destruction of white people. I'm about the total liberation of black people. I hate white people. I hate my enemy... The only thing the cracker understands is violence... The only thing the cracker understands is gunpowder. You got to take violence to violence."
The desire to kill, subordinate and demonize white people is a staple of NBPP propaganda. An NBPP Trenton, N.J., chapter "block party" music video posted on YouTube calls on black followers to "bang for freedom," "put the bang right into a cracker's face," and "if you're going to bang, bang for black power ... hang a cracker ... if you're going to bang, bang on the white devil ... burying him near the river bank with the right shovel ... community revolution in progress ... banging for crackers to go to hell, we don't need em."
Chanting "Black Power," Minister Najee Muhammad, national field marshal for the New Black Panther Party, and Uhuru Shakur, local chairman of the Atlanta NBPP chapter, issued a pre-Election Day 2008 threat to "racists and other angry whites who are upset over an impending Barack Obama presidential victory." Said Muhammad: "Most certainly, we cannot allow these racist forces to slaughter our babies or commit other acts of violence against the black population, nor our black president."
That's rich, given that the only racists talking about slaughtering babies are the ones with New Black Panther Party patches on their puffed chests.
If a Tea Party activist threatened to kill the babies of his political opponents, it wouldn't just be front-page news. It would be the subject of Democrat-led congressional investigations, a series of terrified New York Times columns about the perilous "climate of hate," a Justice Department probe by Attorney General Eric Holder, a domestic terror alert from Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and another Important Teachable Moment Speech/Summit from Healer-in-Chief Barack Obama.
But with the racism shoe on the other foot, Team Obama and its media water-carriers are exhibiting the very racial cowardice Holder once purported to condemn. Thanks to Obama's feckless Department of Injustice, these black supremacist brutes are free to show up on the next national Election Day at polling places in full paramilitary regalia with nightsticks, hurling racist, anti-American epithets at those exercising their right to vote and at those protecting the integrity of the electoral process.
The reaction of our national media watchdogs: Shhhhhhhh.
My daughter is bi-racial - mixed as it were - half white, half black. It's been interesting watching her grown (she's only 8), but just as what happened w/Pres. Obama I'm finding similarities w/my daughter as she's growns up and finds her niche within interpersonal relationships among her peers. My daughter's very light skinned; so she passes more for White than Black. Thus, naturally, she gravitates more towards Whites than Blacks. Still, she'll play with anyone...doesn't matter. I'm sure that will change as she gets older (assuming that racism still plays a major role in our society where interpersonal relationships is concerned), but as I watch my child's development I was reminded of reading these same aspects in this particular book which also referenced many of the racial identification issues Pres. Obama mentioned he struggled with in his own books.
I won't deny that Pres. Obama is passionate moreso for his African (American) heritage than he is for his (White) American heritage. His views on race have clearly been shaped not only from how he was treated growing up but also from the influences in his life primarily through college but reinforced from the experiences he's gain while a Community Organizer in Chicago. Unless you're African American, lived closely among African Americans as my wife and her two biological children are now living (and have lived for the last 10 years) or you are of Bi-racial decent, you will never truly know what it's like to live in a world where the color of your skin is still treated with apprehension and some misgivings. Of course, I can no more say what it's like to be White in America than a White man can say what it's like to be Black. But I can say I know what's it's like to be an American. And frankly, that's what I try to see every day...if not for the betterment of myself than for the sake of my children, both White, Black and my little bi-racial darling.
Wow, the GOP has two token black members now? Who would have thought!
I am not aware that any political party has to declare the color of skin of any Member, perhaps you know different PeteEU?
And is it of any importance what color any person is?
