Barack Hussein Obama - passing for black?

It's just a question, but in the "color-blind" America of today, is Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. passing for black? Is he using his father's side of the family to advance his presidential candidacy and denying his white American middle class heritage? Is he denying his Islamic heritage? Just do a Google Search on Ann Obama or Barack Hussein Obama and you'll find all the links you need. I would just like to see him herald his "white" affluent past and privilege in the process so that he can be the "uniter" he claims to be. When he said in his speech at Selma something to the effect of "he is rising to the top on the shoulders of black men..."; well, maybe "shoulders" is better than "backs" but is Obama being disingenuous? You be the judge. I am reminded of the great Thomas Sowell who - when castigated by the civil rights gang for not stating that he owed his success to their efforts - clarified that he owed his success to nothing but his hard work as he completed his degrees (I believe from Harvard) before the "civil rights" thing even got started much less became the mess that it is today. I can't possibly say that Barack (jr.) isn't a fine young man but, from the limited account of his life in 86% Muslim Jarkata and his elite education at Hawaii's Punahou School, an exclusive private co-ed college prep school with approximately 3,700 students in grades K-12, and then his fine education at Occidental University - the 36th ranked private liberal arts college in the nation, his experiences are so far removed from the experience of average Americans as to be trauma-inducing. I applaud the success his background has given him that has enabled him to rise to become the junior Senator from Illinois - but please, a bit more forthrightness on the campaign trail would be appreciated. Using the "race" card - if he has it in him, I think he can rise about that old, worn-out canard. Such as, I suggest speeches such as the following which are my words - for the junior Senator from Illinois:
"I have had experiences few white people in America could have, and even fewer black people in America would even dream of having raised as they are in our failing schools and not even allowed a way out that vouchers would give them - but there is nothing African about me. I am not African; I was born in Hawaii. I'm not a hyphen; I'm an American. I promise that I will work to make the "American Dream" available to all American citizens - regardless of the color of their skin. Based on hard work, good moral character, and the most principled values - all Americans can attain the American Dream. Not on the backs of America's tax payers, but on the hard work of industrious minds. Not through affirmative action - which is institutionalized racism by any definition (the racism we claim to abhor) - but through qualifications and skills. That is the promise of the American Dream to all of us. Let's raise from the grave the words of the late Dr. Martin Luther King - "I have a dream that some day in America, my children will be known for the content of their character, not by the color of their skin." Let's make these words our American promise to all of our children. Together, black, white, yellow, red - let's move America forward to reach Dr. King's admirable goal! As American's we can achieve anything. As hyphens, we denigrate our selves and we condemn our great nation to perpetual division. Every hyphen moves us farther from King's goal. Together we CAN do better. Together we can make the dreams of every American child possible. We won't attain that dream on the backs or shoulders or tax dollars of anyone else. We won't attain that dream on the second-class status that affirmative action bestows upon us. We will attain that goal with our own hands, with true hearts, and applied minds. We are all Americans; let's act like it."
Okay, I'm not a presidential candidate's speech writer; then again, maybe I should be. But not for Barack - there are still too many questions. Or maybe Barack is just your average politician who plays to his audience and leaves out the rest. And hence, the "empty suit." Barack cannot say the words I have written because with every word, he would be denying the goal of "slavery" for all the people - people to be bound in the chains of the Liberal-Socialist agenda, an agenda advanced by division, by class warfare, by ethnic division, by gender division, by religious apartheid. The Liberal-Socialist agenda is a most grave and threatening plague upon the United States of America: defeatists, dividers, leaving only the elite. It is not the only threat we face. Can we afford to be lead by any person who seems at every turn to deny his "roots"? To promote the memories of a divided nation for personal gain?

You do know that George Bush, Jr. went to an exclusive private school, went to a liberal univeristy, Yale U., and went to an elite business school, Harvard Business.

W is an elitist out of touch person by all accounts.

Of course, and he is an "internationalist" as well. See any of my posts regarding the illegal alien invasion and the failure, no planned decisions of our government to advance the invasion and the destruction of our nation as a sovereign nation. I guess the internationalists just can't have we Americans succeeding, not for long at least.

I think Hill and Bill went to Yale. Didn't George W. go to Harvard?

George W. went to both Yale and Harvard.

My point in the comments was to sort of show that holding someone's childhood background against them is sort of unfair. As a child, you've no control of how your parents choose to raise you. For instance, my elder brother was born in Japan and attended a Japanese elementary school. At the time, my Dad worked for the State Department and was assigned to the US Embassy in Japan.

Just my two cents. I'm a moderate voter who came acroos your blog through google search. Anyway, keep up the work. It's good to hear from all sides.

Hmmm... So first everyone was complaining he is not "black enough" and now you're complaining he's not "white enough?"

He's never made a secret about his upbringing. He even wrote a biography. Just because the media focus is on the color of his skin don't be fooled--he knows who he is. He's also running for President and so censors his speech accordingly, just as all the candidates do.

Thank you all! I am concerned about Obama's agenda - more socialism, etc, and about our nation being so hungry/starved for forthright leadership that we'll select anyone with marginal charisma and instead of that person being a lifeboat, they'll be ready with the saw.

It is too early in the political season to really know what will happen. Personally, I don't think Hillary has what it takes to complete a full, knock-down, drag out primary. We'll have to wait and see.

My whole point here is that our news media is focused on "color" and we need to be focused on America and the rape of our cities' resources, we need to close our borders, we need to teach history, world and American, we need a population that is educated, that reads.

We need to move beyond "race" and into statesmanship. That is what we are lacking.

"I am concerned about Obama's agenda"
We all are, Dumbocrat and Republitard alike.
He's the Fred Thompson of the Democratic party, just empty enough to let other people project onto him what they want him to be, and the regurgitate it back.

1138, thank you for stopping by. I actually can't get much into the presidential politics right now. Just did a bit of research on Obama and read Liberally Conservative's "It's an Obamanation" post.

Drop by anytime. I will take your recommendation under advisement. It was sound advice.

I like your point about the need for forthright leadership and statesmanship. I think a yet greater event than 9/11 is necessary to effect a sea change in our national perception. For now, though, I think we're locked into the perennial stampede to the center so beloved by, well, the center.

In truth, alas, it's more like a stampede in the direction of mediocrity.

I hope Fred Thompson is not the empty suit that 1138 apparently thinks he is.

Thanks for your comments over on my site. I look forward to reading more of your stuff.
