This is my first post (finally, after much arm cajoling) so I decided to make it an attention grabbing one.
I’ve noticed people seem to be confused over Barack Obama’s ethnicity. In his first run for Senate in Illinois, he apparently received a large share of the Irish vote because people saw his name and thought it was O’Bama. I have Jewish friends who think he’s part Israeli, because his name is Barack. His father was a Muslim, and some people assume he is too, but he’s actually a practicing Christian. Now there’s a video on YouTube by a man who claims Obama was his gay partner in the late 90′s.
I think the record should be set straight: Obama’s father is black, his mother is white. His father was African and he’s American but apparently he’s not considered African-American to many because he’s actually African, which doesn’t count (figure that one out.) His name is Barack which is Arabic for blessing (similar to the Hebrew word Berakha, but not the Hebrew name Barack, which means lightning). He’s Christian and is married with two daughters, so he seems to be straight. Hope that clears up the confusion, and sorry to disappoint any Irish gay Jews out there.
