Did You Know That Barack Obama Is Black?

by | 21st, June 2008

BARACK Obama tells us that he is not white, but he is black:

Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama said on Friday he expects Republicans to highlight the fact that he is black as part of an effort to make voters afraid of him …

Like Mike Huckabee.

“They’re going to try to make you afraid of me. He’s young and inexperienced and he’s got a funny name. And did I mention he’s black?”

They did. And so did Obama.

It’s almost as if he’s willing the oppostion to talk about his race, his funny middle name and his inexperience. Perhaps that’s all he has?

The only other subject that could jolt Lee out of his slumping stupor on stage was Barack Obama, to which all conversational roads seemed to lead. Discussing his Hurricane Katrina epic When the Levees Broke, Lee referenced the current flooding in the midwest and said, “The infrastructure of this country is crumbling, and money’s going elsewhere.” He paused, then at quadruple the volume: “That’s gonna change, though…gonna be a real Chocolate City!”

As he says: “This ought to help the Obama Campaign solidify the white vote.”
