It’s Politics, NOT Color

Listening to the radio, I was a little confused by all the hoopla that was being made about Barack Obama’s white grandmother. I knew his mother was white, so that would lead me to assume that her mother was white. Yeah? So? I wonder how many blacks in this country do NOT have a white ancestor. What’s the big deal?

Evidently, the big deal is a strategy to “hide” this fact. Pictured in the the Chicago Sun Times, is Barack with a woman named as “his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, in Africa in 2004. Courtesy of the Obama family


It seems that a column, Free Obama’s White Grandmother by Andy Martin on 28 March, got people up in arms enough to complain to NewsMax. Since the woman is obviously NOT white, why wouldn’t they direct their complaints to the Sun Times? Or Obama’s campaign?

So, just WHY is Obama Still Hiding White Grandma? I’d say that was flat out racism!

Honestly, I don’t care what color he is. I’m not voting for him. Now, if he was a J.C. Watts, or perhaps Michael Steele, I would have NO problem whatsoever! They are conservative, Barack Obama is NOT.



  1. The woman in Africa is not Obama’s African grandmother. The Sun-Times published an erroneous picture.

  2. Madelyn Dunham was white, not the lady in Africa. After my series of stories, Obama released a 25 year old picture with his grandparents to the Chicago Tribune. The real Madelyn Dunham has never spoken to the media in the past ten (10) years. Very strange. (That’s her in the second picture when Obama was in college.)

  3. Dear Red States…

    We’ve decided we’re leaving. We intend to form our own country, and
    we’re taking the other Blue States with us.

    In case you aren’t aware, that includes Hawaii, Oregon,Washington,
    Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast. We
    believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially
    to the people of the new country of New California.

    To sum up briefly: You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.
    We get stem cell research and the best beaches. We get Elliot
    Spitzer. You get Ken Lay.

    We get the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood.
    We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.
    We get Harvard. You get Ole’ Miss.
    We get 85 percent of America’s venture capital and entrepreneurs. You
    get Alabama.
    We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states
    pay their fair share.

    Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22 percent lower than the
    Christian Coalition’s, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a
    bunch of single moms.

    Please be aware that Nuevo California will be pro-choice and
    anti-war, and we’re going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at
    once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have
    kids they’re apparently willing to send to their deaths for no
    purpose, and they don’t care if you don’t show pictures of their
    children’s caskets coming home. We do wish you success in Iraq, and
    hope that the WMDs turn up, but we’re not willing to spend our
    resources in Bush’s Quagmire.

    With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80 percent
    of the country’s fresh water, more than 90 percent of the pineapple
    and lettuce, 92 percent of the nation’s fresh fruit, 95 percent of
    America’s quality wines (you can serve French wines at state dinners)
    90 percent of all cheese, 90 percent of the high tech industry, most
    of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and
    condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools, plus Harvard, Yale,
    Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

    With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88
    percent of all obese Americans (and their projected health care
    costs), 92 percent of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100 percent of the
    tornadoes, 90 percent of the hurricanes, 99 percent of all Southern
    Baptists, virtually 100 percent of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh,
    Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

    We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

    Additionally, 38 percent of those in the Red states believe Jonah was
    actually swallowed by a whale, 62 percent believe life is sacred
    unless we’re discussing the death penalty or gun laws, 44 percent say
    that evolution is only a theory, 53 percent that Saddam was involved
    in 9/11 and 61 percent of you crazy b*****ds believe you are people
    with higher morals then we lefties.

    By the way, we’re taking the good pot, too. You can have that dirt
    weed they grow in Mexico.

    Peace out,
    Blue States
