Did Obama Lie About Drugs to Get Black Voters?
The way you read Obama's book or hear his speeches, it would seem like he was a coked out pothead alcoholic, but did he make it up to get the poor black vote? MSNBC says, "He added some writerly touches in his memoir to make the challenges he overcame seem more dramatic."
Seems like another Frey on our hands. Why do people feel compelled to make themselves look like they were badasses? Is it because in some idiotic way they think the badass is cool? Here is a clue, the badasses end up being found dead naked in a hotel room. That is not cool. The badass usually has strained family relationships, if they have one at all. Don't even get me started about the "friends" they keep.
Did Obama play with the truth for the sake of the poor and/or jealous blacks that hate educated black people? They call them Uncle Tom's, sell-outs, and anything else they can think of.
Here's a clue Obama. Black people do not need a place to look down, but a place to look up. We are tired of people lowering the bar and expecting nothing of us. You were educated in a white college. You go boy, don't hang your head. You got through law school, and helped some people. That is what being black should be about, not whether or not he was a former addict, pimp, or whatever.
The reality is you are the person that black youth should be looking up to. You have the million dollar house and you didn't sell dope or women to get it. So please, do not try to come off as a badass, because we blacks have enough of them. Some of us are tired of looking in the ghetto and the gutter for inspiration because those who do make it leave and don't remember how to show others the way.
Obama, you don't have my vote, but you do have my respect. Drop the dope from the speeches because it really is not who you are or were, according to your college friends. Isn't the better story that you explored and left it alone?
The problem I have with the story is that one might suspect that Obama wrote and said what he did to have an appeal for the black voter. Clue, drugged out people don't really go to the polls.
