President Obama’s handwritten letter to his Kenyan half-brother explains a lot about his political motivations, revealing he had to be “talked into” running for office, and he only AGREED to run to fix problems with the way blacks are treated.
The grievances were clear from the beginning.
The letter, signed “Much Love, Barack,” was sold by Malik Abongo “Roy” Obama to a collector for an undisclosed price, Page Six reported Saturday.
Malik sold two other such letters for nearly $15,000 each in 2013.
This particular letter, dated July 23, 1995, contains some interesting tidbits about Barack Obama as nascent politician.
His admitted focus on black goes goes a long way to explaining the blatantly race-based focus of Eric Holder’s Justice Department, not to mention the presence of Al Sharpton as the main adviser on racial issues in the Oval Office.
To put it bluntly, Barack Obama went into politics with the racial animus that’s fed his whole political career — no matter what he said in that 2004 speech convention speech that fooled so many people.
As for me, I am very busy these days. As you can see, the book is finished and in the bookstores, so I have been going to various bookstores to talk about the book. In addition, some colleagues of mine here have talked me into running for the Illinois State Senate (like being an MP for a province, not the national United States Congress in D.C.). I have agreed, since I have an interest in politics to deal with some of the serious issues blacks face here. Of course, it involves a lot of campaigning, going to meetings and so on, which I don’t find so attractive. Anyway, if I win it will only be a part-time post, and I will continue my work as a lawyer.
Those “colleagues” seemed to do a great job for Obama, whose book launch and public profile were both rising in Chicago. The day after Christmas, 1995—the last day to file challenges—Obama supporter Ron Davis challenged the nominating petitions of all three of Obama’s contenders for the state senate seat, resulting in Obama winning the seat unopposed.
That’s campaigning, Chicago-style.
The letter was made available through Los Angeles-based Moments In Time, a dealer in rare historical items. The buyer’s price was not disclosed, according to Page Six.
Malik Obama lives in Kenya—he and the president served as each other’s best men at their respective weddings.
Page Six reported the White House offered no comment on the letter.
Obama’s interest in politics only as a tool to deal with “issues blacks face,” and his disdain of “going to meetings and so on” makes perfect sense based on how he handles the presidency.
No wonder why he’s out playing golf all the time, instead of leading the country.
