Barack obama dating white women
of Chicago at age 15 back when they took younger students (but she didn't go) and got a Ph. (This is assuming that they aren't the same person, whom Obama has melded together for whatever reason).One might think that a 656 page biography might ask those kind of questions, but it doesn't.But what if this was all a smokescreen intended to distract from him being gay -- this would hardly be the first time in quasi-autobiographical literature.
I came up with virtually no evidence, other than a lack of pre-Michelle girlfriends (he didn't meet Michelle until he was almost 28), except for one white serious girlfriend, whom he shoves away because she is white.
While writing my reader's guide to Barack Obama's memoir, I had a moment of doubt.
I thought I understood the basic thrust of the guy's life -- the need to define himself as black to acquire political power, because being seen as African-American would be hugely advantageous to the career of a quite white guy like Barry Soetoro.
My wife was even more convinced than I was that the Obama-is-gay theory was a dead-end.
But Remnick does say about his first Chicago stay (1985-1988): This is interesting for a couple of reasons.
First, she sounds much like his mom, who got accepted by the U. Second, according to his book, he had previously realized in New York that it wouldn't work with a white girl, so why another white girlfriend?
