Cynique,

I...and a lot of African women...loathe
the term "Mother Africa."

And I hardly ever hear anyone talking about
Obama's White mother or even showing photos
of her.

Images of MICHELLE, on the other hand, are everywhere.

Not to mention Michelle's mother and Obama's
Grandma Sara...2 more dark skinned black women.

And then there's Obama's darling brilliant
little girls...Malia and Sasha.

So I am extremely shocked that you
wrote:

Once again Fate has cast a white woman in the goddess role - as the "Virginal Mary" who gave birth to the savior. And Michelle, of course, has been marginalized. Po sistahs jes cain't catch a break.


Who sees her as a Virginal Mary?

If his White Mother is such a goddess--how
come he grew up and married Michelle?

And how come he made it very clear in his
2 bestselling books that for him...it would
have to be a Black woman?

Obama has a "white" sister that his
"virginal" mother had by an Indonesian
man (one of many men she experienced
after she was considered sell out
"Ho-trash" by White Men).

His sister is very beautiful and sweet. I hardly ever see her image anywhere.

I just don't think images of White Superiority are getting any traction in this particular case.
