Afro-Africans --- not black enough?


Obama, to his credit, has never fed into this. He wants to be judged on his socialistic policies not on his color.
I wonder how much of it has to do with not being reared in the victim-mongering culture of black America. Obama's life experience is not ghetto-class, but truly foreign. He has a different baggage. I imagine Michelle tried to bring him up to whitey-hating code and Rev Wright certainly laid the woe-is-us on him, but it doesn't seem to have stuck.
