Barack Obama wrote Dreams From My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance more than ten years ago. However, the writings in the book do tend to show the side of Obama that would make him choose a church like the one pastored by Jeremiah Wright. One reviewer of the book stated on the Barnes and Noble website (find link below): “He idolizes a black father who deserted him, but seems to ignore a white mother responsible for his greatness.” And then this addendum to his book from Barack Obama, himself, ten years after he wrote the book and had received unfavorable responses, by many, about the lack of respect and discussion of a white mother who raised him after his black father abandoned him at two years old: “I think sometimes that had I known she would not survive her illness, I might have written a different book — less a meditation on the absent parent, more a celebration of the one who was the single constant in my life. In my daughters I see her every day, her joy, her capacity for wonder. I won’t try to describe how deeply I mourn her passing still. I know that she was the kindest, most generous spirit I have ever known, and that what is best in me I owe to her. “
I wonder why he would have only written more respectfully about her and her white family if he knew she was dying? Was this not a woman who made sacrifices for him? Made sure that he was taken care of when a black father deserted him? Yet, he idolized a black man and basically cast his white mother aside. How demoralizing for this poor woman. He can say whatever he wants, but as a mother of a twenty-two year man, I would be very hurt if he began to idolize a man that had abandoned him and myself. I would be very hurt to see him spouting racist remarks against whites in a book that he himself had written. I would be very hurt to hear him say disrespectful things about my mother, his grandmother, who helped to care for him and provide him with the education that made it possible to be a black man running for President of the United States. I would be very hurt to have him attend a church for 20 years and then not be honest enough to admit he CHOOSE that church because of the agenda they had against white people.
I will say it for his mother, “Shame on you Barack Hussein Obama. Shame on you for not respecting me and my family enough while I was living.”
