Response to frazzled (Reply #6)

Tue Aug 26, 2014, 11:59 PM

108. Wow, frazzled! Maybe that's why Dr West didn't get invited to the Inauguraton.. could not be.. but,

geeze.. that's just crazy talk and the kind I'm use to coming from "mr so entrenched in people's skin color" he's rendered himself obnoxious. His own worst enemy.

"At any rate, we'd tuned into the Tavis Smiley radio show on NPR, and he had his friend West on. And they start talking about Obama and West says, "He's not really a brother, you know. His mother was white." And my husband and I looked at each other and pretty much gasped. The conversation continued about how this fellow Obama (then our senator from Illinois) was not black enough, and in that sense, was some sort of fraud."

Dr West sounded like a jealous mean girl before Obama became President.. now it's just the Tavis and West Vitriolic Tour and sure they have some ODSers to give them applause.

mahalo frazzled~
