Black community questions Obama's 'blackness'

"This hasn't stopped speculation, but Obama also has another problem. Members of the black community are questioning the candidate's blackness because his father was born in Africa and his mother is white. Although some are calling this a non-issue, Jolivette Anderson-Douoning, facility and program supervisor for the Black Cultural Center, explained why there is a deeper issue than whether Obama is black enough.

"'His father didn't experience Jim Crow," said Anderson-Douoning. 'He was a black man not defined by Jim Crow America.'

"It's not as if the black community is disowning him, she said, but it is concerned with Obama's family's lack of the 'black experience' and his politics towards blacks.

Go to

You all will define Barack Obama based on how White racist Jim Crow-ers defined him? My father experienced Jim Crow, but I was not there. But I have experienced racism personally. Senator Obama is Black, PERIOD. He and I lived in the most segregated city in the North -- Chicago. I guarantee you he has experienced racism personally.

So it is nonsense to talk what his family experienced. He knows first hand what it means to be Black.

Has Hillary Clinton's family or even her husband's experienced Jim Crow?

Why is it that Blacks want to dissect Obama like a frog in a high school biology class and do not show scalpels to the other candidates?

This is like Black-on-Black crime!

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs -- partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs....There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who do not want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public."
