In what must come as a shock to many Americans, Michelle Obama’s mom didn’t like Barack Obama’s white side.
Taking a page out of the Harry Reid acceptability book, except from the other perspective, Marian Robinson liked Barack, because he was an non-threatening black-looking man, with no Negro dialect.
A new biography of Michelle Obama has revealed that her mother was initially suspicious of her future son-in-law because he was of his mixed race. The claim is contained in a new biography of the First Lady written by Washington Post correspondent Peter Slevin.
According to Slevin, despite her initial reservations, Marian Robinson, now 77, was soon won over by the high-flying lawyer who had serious political ambitions.
As part of his research into Mrs. Obama’s life, Mr Slevin uncovered an interview with WTTW’s ‘Chicago Tonight’ show where Mrs Robinson addressed the issue of race. She told the interviewer that his mixed-race heritage did not worry her.

‘That didn’t concern me as much as had he been completely white.’
It’s easy to see how Obama developed this black-centric mentality. All of his real influences were about anarchy against the establishment, which he viewed as “rich white men.” Even when Obama got help from whites, it was whites who hated their own identities, and who were themselves anti-establishment, by any means necessary.
Many old-school blacks held Marian Robinson’s racist view of the white man, though most demonstrated “selective outrage.” Some whites were good, even friends. It’s interesting how Liberal blacks paint white people with the same brush, yet most have at least one or more very significant white people who have helped them.
Americans thought that electing Obama would heal any of the old wounds created by Democrats, and soften the views of these old-school black folks. Yet we find ourselves in the midst of a “hate whitey” campaign unlike this child of the ’60s has ever seen.
