Obama Derided “Race Mixing” in “Dreams From My Father”

Barack Obama ridiculed a Black classmate for having a Caucasian girlfriend

    Tim was not a conscious brother. Tim wore argyle sweaters and pressed jeans and talked like Beaver Cleaver. He planned to major in business. His white girlfriend was probably waiting for him up in his room, listening to country music. …”Tim’s a trip, ain’t he,” I said, shaking my head. “Should change his name from Tim to Tom [presumably a reference to Uncle Tom].”

    Barack Obama, “Dreams From My Father,” pages 101-102 (paperback edition)

  1. We remind Barry that many states once had racist laws against miscegenation, or “race mixing.” Had it not been for the Civil Rights movement, his Black classmate might have been jailed, or beaten up by the Ku Klux Klan, for being in the company of a white woman. In other words, Barry denounced his classmate for exercising a right for which many people even went so far as to risk their lives.
  2. We remind Barry that, had his parents not practiced “race mixing,” he would not exist.
  3. Barry’s denigration of middle class and primarily Caucasian people as “bitter” people who “cling to guns and religion” is consistent with his assumption that his classmate’s white girlfriend listened to country music (and went to NASCAR races, and doubtlessly had a pickup truck with a gun rack…)
