STOP ALREADY! Barack Obama is not Black and not First
Barack Obama is not black he is mulatto. He is the 43rd first which makes him the 44th president. I am tired of all the hoopla over something that is not. There is never a second first that is 2nd, period. I am tired of everyone in this country having to be “special.”
If I were his mother or grand parents I would slap him for conspicuously ignoring half of his heritage.
Is it any wonder why kids are not doing well in school or are confused by what is true and what is myth? My children have corrected their teachers on this and many other issues. My God my son had to correct one of his teachers because she was trying to teach kids that our country is a democracy and she did not accept that we are a republic.
There is no hope for us as a species if we keep putting our own personal slant on things because it sounds good or rosy. There is only one truth. Let us not confuse our kids from now on.
Barack Obama should be the FIRST person to set the record straight, and I will have a hard time addressing him as president until he does.
Stop rewriting history BEFORE it happens.
