Let’s take a deep dive as Barack Obama is playing with race… AGAIN!
“It was as if my very presence in the White House had triggered a deep-seated panic, a sense that the natural order had been disrupted,” Mr Obama writes. According to a copy of the book obtained by CNN, the former president’s new book deeply explores how the Republican party evolved during his eight years in office and reacted in response to his presidency. “For millions of Americans spooked by a Black man in the White House, he promised an elixir for their racial anxiety,” in the first volume of his new memoir: A Promised Land.
It’s been almost four years since a half-black man was in the White House for eight years. Many of us have been relieved that his race-obsessed provocations were out of our lives but seeing how he’s making it all about himself (and race again), rightly to sell a book, a response was in order and so posted on Twitter.
I correctly emphasize half-black as there are always family dynamics that outsiders don’t understand and wisely don’t interject themselves in. Many non-blacks, especially younger types, have no idea of some of the dirty laundry that’s been stirring internally for decades so when they do chime in, it’s done to placate feelings of the near-total ignorant.
The dance scene in Spike Lee’s 1988 “School Daze” is a musical rendition of this internal “discussion”.
Liberals, especially those running the entertainment industry, clearly prefer light-skinned blacks. They’ve always been considered “non-threatening”. Look at the most well known black singers in the music industry and the vast majority are the light-skinned. Internal tension and resentment is understandable.
He was wowed by Obama’s oratorical gifts and believed that the country was ready to embrace a black presidential candidate, especially one such as Obama — a ‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one’.

I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.
— Sen. Joe Biden
Look at who’s possibly positioned to be the next Vice President of the United States. A light-skinned “woman of color” with no Negro dialect unless she wants to have one.
Sadly, the most incendiary race toxicity comes from the light-skinned who are constantly trying to prove their blackness.
Let’s not leave out the honorary mentions of a growing list of white people, “identifying” as blacks, trying to prove their “blackness”.
