Is B. Hussein Obama “Black Enough?”

Michelle Obama answers

Michelle Obama, wife of Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, Friday called questions early in the campaign about whether her biracial husband was “black enough” to appeal to African-American voters “silly.”

“It’s silliness and it’s about part of the silliness of our culture,” she said.

Woe, woe, hold on a second, Michelle. While I agree that the questions are silly, it is only a “part of our culture” in so far as it is those on the Left who embrace rhetoric and ideals such as that. On the right, we do not care about ones skin color, only the content of their character.

“I don’t think there is a person of color in this country that doesn’t struggle with what it means to be a part of your race versus what the majority thinks is right.”

Those on the Right don’t. Probably because they have moved past the Leftist claptrap about needing the help of the government and others to survive, and do not need the approval of Liberalism, instead being secure in who they are.

But, who exactly was pulling the “not Black enough” stuff?

The question about Obama, who was born in Hawaii to a Kenyan father and a mother from Kansas, was raised early in the presidential race, when rival Sen. Hillary Clinton was polling well among black voters and landing endorsements from high-profile black political leaders.


Let’s not forget the L.A. Times, Time, Joe Biden (D-De), NPR, The Guardian, and the NY Sun, among others, not to mention all the blogs who covered this meme. Funny how this doesn’t occur on the Right, where Bush has appointed more Blacks then Clinton ever did. Had more on his campaign staff then John Kerry. And they were in positions of power, not because they were Black, but because they were great choices. It was those on the left who were wondering if people like Condi and Colin were Black enough. Also, the ones who were throwing ethnic slurs their way.
