Re Barack Obama: We definitely haven't come as far as people like to think...
Hi All, I just received an email that reminded me of the conversation we had the week before last about what it might mean for the state of race in America that we have a black presidential candidate. This email came from a mother of a friend of mine in Utah who in all respects that I've known her is a swell person (or so I obviously mistakenly thought). Anyway, here is the text of the email she forwarded to about 30 people which had been forwarded to her and about 30 others:
This is very interesting - please take a few moments and read it.
Who is Barack Obama?
Something that should be considered when you make your choice.
If you do not ever forward anything else, please forward this to all
your contacts...it is very scary to think of what could lie ahead for us
here in our own United States...better heed this and pray about it and share it.
We checked this out on " snopes.com". It is factual. Check for yourself.
Who is Barack Obama?
Probable U. S. presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama was born
in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., a black MUS LIM from Nyangoma-Kogel, Kenya and Ann Dunham, a white Athiest from
Obama's parents met at the University of Hawaii. When Obama was two
years old, his parents divorced. His father returned to Kenya. His
mother then married Lolo Soetoro, a RADICAL Muslim from Indonesia.
When Obama was 6 years old, the family relocated to Indonesia. Obama
attended a MUSLIM school in Jakarta. He also spent two years in a
Obama takes great care to conceal the fact that he is a Muslim. He is
quick to point out that, "He was once a Muslim, but that he also
attended Catholic school."
Obama's political handlers are attempting to make it appear that
that he is not a radical.
Obama's introduction to Islam came via his father, and that this
influence was temporary at best. In reality, the senior Obama returned
to Kenya soon after the divorce, and never again had any direct
influence over his son's education.
Lolo Soetoro, the second husband of Obama's mother, Ann Dunham,
introduced his stepson to Islam. Obama was enrolled in a Wahabi school
Wahabism is the RADICAL ISLAMIC teaching that is followed by the Muslim
terrorists who are now waging Jihad against the western world. Since
it is politically expedient to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking major
public office in the United States, Barack Hussein Obama has joined
the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim
background. ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn into office he
DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the Koran.
Barack Hussein Obama will NOT recite the Pledge of Allegience nor
will he show any reverence for our flag. While others place their hands
over their hearts, Obama turns his back to the flag and slouches.
Let us all remain alert concerning Obama's expected presidential
The Muslims have said they plan on destroying the US from the inside
out, what better way to start than at the highest level - through the
President of the United States, one of their own!!!!
Please forward to everyone you know. Would y ou wan t this man leading
our country?...... NOT ME!!!
Crazy and ignorant (not to mention untrue) right!?! Basically racism under the guise of religious xenophobia, but clearly still about race. I literally am disgusted and embarrassed that I even know someone that would perpetuate this but I think people who think like this are more common than many people realize. If anything, I think responses like this to the fact that we have a black man running for president tells us more about the state of race in America than anything else...
