Obama, the African Colonial
by L.E. Ikenga

Had Americans been able to stop obsessing over the color of Barack Obama's skin and instead paid more attention to his cultural identity, maybe he would not be in the White House today. The key to understanding him lies with his identification with his father, and his adoption of a cultural and political mindset rooted in postcolonial Africa.

Like many educated intellectuals in postcolonial Africa, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr. was enraged at the transformation of his native land by its colonial conqueror. But instead of embracing the traditional values of his own tribal cultural past, he embraced an imported Western ideology, Marxism. I call such frustrated and angry modern Africans who embrace various foreign "isms", instead of looking homeward for repair of societies that are broken, African Colonials. They are Africans who serve foreign ideas.

The tropes of America's racial history as a way of understanding all things black are useless in understanding the man who got his dreams from his father, a Kenyan exemplar of the African Colonial.

Before I continue, I need to say this: I am a first generation born West African-American woman whose parents emigrated to the U.S. in the 1970's from the country now called Nigeria....

  2. Thanks RK! I found the entire article disturbingly close to the truth. We think of Barack as a mixed race AMERICAN kid, when in fact to understand him you have to know how he sees his background.
    "Dreams of My Father" anyone?

    Brilliant post! BHO was astonishingly more affected by his father than is popularly portrayed. It was not a case of abandoning mom when he was 2 and walking off the page of Obama's history. I knew little of this until I read the excellent fact-based critique by David Freddoso (The Case Against Barack Obama - the Unlikely Rise and Unexamined Agenda....). Surprise! He's "not a reformer, not a Messiah. Just like all the rest of them in Washington." Ms. Ikenga's assertions ably round out the picture.

  4. Thank you Deborah. Both of his commie parents ran out on him. So what does he do? He spends the rest of his life chasing down their legacy. Oy vay! This Ikenga woman seems to know the Chosen one better than we do. Thanks for the reading suggestion!

  6. Gosh, Morgan, this woman sounds like she knows what she's talking about. But, in truth, these ACP's sound just like our elitist, far-left radical politicians, i.e., Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, et al. They don't love this country, any freedom or democracy. They hold the masses in contempt.

    I don't mind telling you I am scared to death about what's going to happen to our country with the 2010 Census being conducted by downright subversive organizations. There isn't a white person among them. Why does Barack Obama hate white people? He's half white for chrissakes.

  7. Angel, thanks for stopping by! I've been "gone" for a few days, better late than never. :-)

    FW, the only chance we have of stopping this subversive sitting in the WH is to bombard our congressman with calls and e-mails. The 2010 elections will do the trick, and he knows it. Which is why he's doing as much damage as possible NOW! He does have a racial chip, doesn't he? I don't know why it is that mixed race kids usually identify with the darker side.
    In Barack's case it's SUCH an ungrateful attitude since his white grandparents raised him.
    My daughter identifies with my side (she's MY kid) so it's not always true.
