Black racists enraged by
Malia Obama´s white boyfriend

American Thinker, by Ed Straker

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/22/2018 8:52:20 AM

Malia Obama, who is studying at Harvard University, has boyfriend! But some black people on Twitter have questioned her choice in men, because Malia´s new homey, Rory Farquharson, is white. (5 tweets) This racism on the part of some in the black community, who are bruddas and sistas to us all, is very sad. Most white people want us to grow together as a community. I just wish everyone of all races felt the same way. Questions for discussion: After years of Obama´s race baiting, President Trump is the first "post-racial" president to follow him. What do you think President Trump

Relax, Ed. Trump ain´t her daddy. It doesn´t matter what he thinks, and it shouldn´t matter to anyone else.

I saw the New York sojourn photos and wondered how that would fly with the blacks.

This sideshow is unimportant, but I’m enjoying the irony. They have courted black entertainers like Beyonce and the lot, but we know they also courted a lot of white folks so long as the latter had bucks and/or anything else that could be used by the O’s to move themselves on up...

It´s none of their business. I have a couple of cousins who are in interracial marriages. Both are happy, and their spouses are good people. That´s all that matters. Unlike some of the oh so constantly offended, I treat people by the content of their character.

Straker isn’t talking about what President Trump thinks.

Here’s where Straker was going:

What do you think President Trump could do to begin the healing process? Is this a "teachable moment" that President Trump could use to get the Democrats to disavow black racism? How do we get all black people to value the diversity of boyfriends and girlfriends as much as we do?

Those tweeters are showing their true racist colors...

Since Malia is only 1/4 white, Rory is restricted to 1/4 of her body.

(I posted, some time ago, about my University and black students.
Black upperclassmen ran new student orientation for incoming black freshmen. It was made clear to the black girls that they were not to date white boys.
The same rule did not apply to black boys dating white girls. It was implicitly encouraged that they do so..)

I would think most of her life she was part of the most elite white world except maybe during their Martha Vineyard vacation where she saw elite blacks. It does not surprise me that she is dating a white guy. I would think eventually this will break up as both families won´t want this to be long-term.

I would wager that the LGBTQ low IQ couple who adopted her is having a cow over this. In Malia´s defense, how many eligible young black men have Middle Eastern sponsors to send them to Harvard?

This girl might accomplish what the entire Obama administration claimed to do but didn´t.

Seems to me the 0bama daughter is rarely if ever attending classes at Harvard. Is that part of the affirmative action program---- not attending any classes and receiving a diploma anyway after four years? This of course devalues the Harvard diploma received by students who actually do the work.

What I find interesting is that I didn´t read about those black racists being attacking Serena Williams who married a white guy. Nor have I seen any backlash against her sister Venus who is also dating a white guy. I really don´t care what Malia or any of them do. I also have not seen any backlash from the insane leftists because Malia interned the filthy Harvey Weinstein´s company. They are always selective in their outrage.

Why should this surprise anyone? Her father is 1/2 white, she has one set of white grandparents, she went to a predominately white high school, and she´s going to a predominately white college. Also, her parents either ran around with trashy black performers or white liberals. Which would you choose?

Wonder how this is being viewed by her, ahem, parents, Ex-Dictator Barry and her scowling, racist, hulking Momma Moochelle.

Her whiter than white boyfriend better be very careful around Moochelle because he may suddenly find himself on the receiving end of a flurry of powerful punches delivered by Moochelle linebacker arms and ham sized fists.

What #5 said.

Besides, can they really be blamed for this?

Were it not for their tempest-teapot racial "rage," they would have nothing.

Barry Soetoro is one of the whitest progressive presidents ever.

This is what´s sending them over the edge.

They know it; we know it... half white, half African Arab.

Who really cares? At this point, what does it really matter. Why are we still discussing this.

Malia has a boyfriend just like her old man and it´s none of our business. I say leave her alone.

The Deceiver and the Royal Wedding

As a committed Christian, I was happy to see the open presentation of the Christian faith at Saturday´s Royal Wedding. (snip) In a quick moment, Bishop Curry turned to the socialist world message of "Love." It snuck in through the side door of the church and landed on the lectern with hardly a noise. Curry later compounded his mistake by going down several rabbit trails that had nothing to do with a wedding, including a discussion of slavery. Worse were comments on Dr. King, who certainly was rolling over in his grave by that point, including quoting Dr. King´s favorite

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray.

His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

The royal wedding is on, and for those of us watching, it was a relief to see that tradition abounded. (snip) President Trump took that very graciously, and despite not being invited, sent gifts - the traditional official bowl, of course, but also donations to Harry and Meghan´s favorite charities, likely out of his own pocket. And with additional class, he sent gracious warm wishes. The press grudgingly reported that. But after all the wall-to-wall speculation about whether he or President Obama would get an invitation, and quite a few in the press thought President Obama would, the press was curiously silent about whether

(snip) Since the NEC was conceived by an executive order by President Bill Clinton in 1993, it has been principally wedded to a globalist culture, with an emphasis on multilateralism and strengthening the liberal global order.

New York Daily News hits new low with

An opinionated tabloid cover can be effective, but only if the point made is so obvious that an entire audience can see and relate to it. It also helps if it is humorous and has a witty headline. What it´s not is garbage that looks as though it comes straight from fake news, or compares apples to oranges in the name of promoting the propaganda of some unhappy terrorist group. With the Jerusalem embassy opening, the Daily News has ventured well into the second category in its cover and is completely disgusting. Look at this putrid cover shot.

Chicago is planning to hand over 19 acres of public parkland, occupying a prime lakefront site, to a private entity, for a nominal sum, in order to build a monument to Barack Hussein Obama. Now, a Chicago nonprofit, Protect Our Parks, filed a lawsuit Monday in federal court alleging, according to the Chicago Tribune, that: …established law precludes the Park District from arbitrarily transferring possession, use and control of this dedicated ‘open, clear and free’ public parkland in Jackson Park to a private nongovernmental … entity’s self-determined use,” the complaint says. The complaint cites an “institutional bait and switch” because

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement. "Anyone who is entrusted with our nation’s highest secrets should act with the gravity and

Former President Jimmy Carter jabbed President Trump during his commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia on Saturday, joking about the crowd size at the event. Carter pointed out that the crowd size at the commencement was bigger this year than when Trump spoke to Liberty graduates in 2017, the Associated Press reported. “I don’t know if President Trump would admit that," Carter said, referring to the Trump’s claim, which was widely determined to be false, that his inauguration crowd exceeded 1 million people. Carter wasn´t the only one to bring up the Trump inauguration crowd size Saturday. The Twitter

Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said parents should pull their children out of school until Congress passes gun control legislation. "What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?" Duncan tweeted Saturday. Duncan, who served as secretary under President Obama, called the step "tragically necessary." "My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he said. Duncan´s plea comes one day after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
