Obama is black again. And he knows when to be black.
It’s when you go to a Historically Black College or University (HBCU) named after a white Republican named Henry L. Morehouse.
While at Morehouse, Obama spoke about the “special obligation” he feels as a black man to help those left behind.
“There but for the grace of God, I might be in their shoes…I might have been in prison. I might have been unemployed. I might not have been able to support a family — and that motivates me.”
Obama knows the mean streets of Oahu, HI, where just being half-black could get you into a beef over who could catch the biggest waves or a vicious beach volleyball game.
It’s amazing he was able to survive the experience.
Then of course there is Obama’s black experience that led him to Columbia, then Harvard, where he notably skipped HBCUs.
Obama knows the pain of half-black kids who had no father. When his biological father left, Obama was raised by his grandfather, then a stepfather, and of course his real father Frank Marshall Davis.
But he reminded the students of Morehouse of his “heroic single mother” who had a penchant for a variety of men.
In what I view as a slap in the face to Democrats, Obama reminded Morehouse graduates of the racist Democratic Party, a party who would have never allowed Morehouse to exist:
“Laws and hearts and minds have been changed to the point where someone who looks just like you can somehow come to serve as president of these United States.”
Obama conveniently forgot to mention that the college was founded by Republicans.
Obama’s commencement was replete with mention of gays and immigrants, and talk of diversity and tolerance, you know…the things that Liberal blacks (and Liberals in general) don’t practice.
