Isn't there some kind of irony in the fact that Barak Obama's mother was not a strong black woman but a starry-eyed young white girl who married a wayward Kenyan man because she apparently wanted to prove she wasn't racially prejudiced.
When all is said and done, there is validity to what certain critics grumble about America's first non-white president; his roots are not in common with the slave descendants who have so slavishly embraced him. Moreover, his teflon exterior has made his personal black experience superficial. And the accomplished black woman he is married to has been relegated to the role of child nurturer and fashion icon and dog petter... Happy Inauguration, y'all.
