Now, THIS is an interesting revelation: Sen. Barack Obama is not an African-American.
Why is the fact that Mr. Obama is only 6.25% African Negro not reported?
Because to acknowledge it is to report this devastating truth about him: Mr. Obama is not legally African-American. It is impossible for him to be, in truth, America’s first African-American president.
This means that the media, which has trumpeted his historic candidacy while chiding the campaigns of Clinton and McCain for “playing the race card”, has categorized and judged this man not on the facts of his life, but solely on the color of his skin.
The irony is delicious, and will more than likely be lost on 98% of the American public.
