why do you feel that you
have to tell us that Obama is
not a black man

Why do you feel that you have
to keep telling Americans that he is?

My love and support of OBAMA is NOT
for Black America's reasons...

was the context of my comment.

In fact---without Michelle, who IS
Black, I may not have been as
enthusiastic about him.

Also, in a racist White nation that
disrespectfully claims" Black people
are so inferior that just anybody can
be one...

...like many Africans, I feel a very
strong need to rebuke the implications
of such racist Plantation-era Camelshitt.

On Tuesday, when Tiger Woods speaks
at the Inauguaration, he will speak of
how proud he is that a "multi-racial"
person is the President of America.

Obama's African grandmother, Sarah,
who comes from a nation (KENYA) and
a Family that considers Obama "Half-Caste"
will speak about why she's proud that
tribe member is President of the United

Michelle Obama, a Black woman from
CHICAGO, will express her pride in her
"Black husband."

So you see...the world is getting smaller.

And each type of person who speaks...will
speak for themselves.

within, 75 words or less

Carey, as I once told a newspaper

"I'm a Writer;

---not a Word Processor.

And on "message boards"---I SPEAK--I
don't really write.

ONE THING I can guarantee you is
that when most people read the first
2 lines of anything I write--

they find that they can't stop reading
until they finish what I'm saying.

People write me telling me that all
the time.

Whatever the case, I won't be stopping
my train of thought to count my words, love. :-)
