Dr. Boyce: What if Barack Obama Were a White Man?

by Dr. Boyce Watkins

About eight years ago, I wrote a book called “What if George Bush were a Black Man?”  The book was designed to analyze the vast impact that skin color has on our outcomes in a historically racist society.   The summarized conclusion of the project was that disparities in the educational, economic and criminal justice systems give black men a much smaller margin of error than the one they would receive if they were white.  A white kid in college caught using dope in a frat house gets a slap on the wrist.  A black kid in the projects doing the same thing might lose his entire future.

Right around the time I finished the book, a legendary radio show host out of Milwaukee by the name of Keith Murphy asked, “Have you heard of this guy named Barack Obama?”   My first response was “Who is he?” and my second question was “How do you say his name again?”

Murphy explained that Obama was a senator from Illinois that “everyone is excited about.”  I did my research, and later on CNN, noted that Hillary Clinton may end up getting competition from the guy who was so sharp and charismatic.

Years later, after reflecting on how dumb it was for me to pour my soul into the first book about George Bush, I asked myself the corollary question:  “What if Barack Obama were a white man?”

I started off by asking the readers on my Facebook page, a group of highly-intelligent black people who give me perspectives from across the board.  Then, I looked in the mirror and asked myself the same question.  Not only can  I say that I don’t yet know the answer, I can also say that the question led me to several follow-up questions.

What’s worse is that someone then said to me that the article should actually be titled, “What if Barack Obama were a Black Man?”   But I thought that such a title would be flat out mean.  I don’t have the right to question President Obama’s blackness, but we all have the to question his commitment to serving the black community as readily as he seems to serve everybody else.   Thus far, he has treated his black skin to be a burden, as if not mentioning his blackness will make the Republicans overlook his “disability.”  But then again, I’m just speculating and thinking out loud, wondering why the man we love so much seems determined to pretend that we’re not even there.

If Barack Obama were a white man:

1)      Would Cornel West be going after him in such a vicious way?

2)      Would Tom Joyner, Steve Harvey, Melissa Harris-Perry, Michael Eric Dyson and Al Sharpton be defending him so unconditionally?

3)      Would Michelle Obama’s presence still validate his blackness the way that it does in the minds of some who wondered if he was ‘black enough?’ Does that validation serve as a replacement for substantive policy?

4)      Would black people have given him 93% of the vote and had such extraordinary turnout in the last two elections?

5)      Would he have been able to defeat Hillary Clinton?

6)      Would I be writing about him right now?  Would so many of “us” be interested in politics?  Would black church folk have grown this much in their acceptance of gay marriage?

7)      Would he still be afraid to talk about racial inequality in public? Would he be allowed to get away with it?

8)      Would the Republicans still be questioning his place of birth and saying that they need to “take their country back?”

9)      Would people still be putting up those ridiculous pictures of him sitting next to Martin Luther King Jr?

10)   Would he be afraid to be friends with great black men like Jeremiah Wright and would he be allowed to freeze Rev. Jesse Jackson out of the White House?

Again, I don’t claim to know the answers to these questions, but I can say that our ability to isolate the impact of President Obama’s skin color would tell us a great deal about ourselves and our country.  It might also help us separate substance from symbolism moving forward to learn the difference between having a black leader and having a leader with black skin.   Those two things are certainly not one and the same, and the stakes are too high for us to forget that.

  1. Good grief! What is your obsession with President Obama? And if you haven’t noticed he IS half white! I held you in high regard, but you are starting to act just like Donald Trump with his conspiracy theories. Please tell me who actually believed President Obama was going to cure all of Black America’s ills because he is black?!?! Some Black people have a tendency to blame everybody except the “man” in the mirror for what is wrong in the world and their lives. And yes, I am black!

    • HIV is synthetic. It has been developed over a number of years and it has an affinity for people of color. What the science and medical evidence concludes is that the HIV enzyme seeks out a receptor site in the blood of the Black genome. The receptor site is the CCR5 Delta 32+ (positive) gene that all people of color have. In the same sense, on the other end of the spectrum, is the 15 percent Caucasian population of the world, which is CCR5 Delta 32-(negative) gene. That means that under no circumstances, whether HIV came through the air, intravenous drug usage or any form of s****l activity, would the virus be transferable in Caucasian sector of the world’s population, which is basically of northern European descent.

      It is speculated by some experts that, in a worse case scenario, 85 percent of the world’s population could potentially perish under these designer viruses and designer synthetic biological agents. What we’re looking at here—because of this identified gene of the Black genome, this CCR5 Delta32+ (positive)—we are potentially looking at the eradication of all people of color.The bible states “My people perish for lack of knowledge. The true devil doesn’t wear red tights, a cape with horns protruding from his forehead instead, the devil incarnate are diabolical Caucasian scientist (men and women) in white lab coats.

      • @BigWill. The actual devils are those who have the power to tell scientists and doctors, etc., what to build or what to do. In fact they have the power to tell the leaders of most nations what they can and cannot do! When a leader tries to reject the aggression of the “Anglo-elite” they end up like ML King, or Sadaam, or any number of ‘fairly’ decent leaders who have been either run out, murdered, or emprisoned! Their (these resistant leaders) whole nation suffers from embargo, and their religious beliefs are attacked! Many people have lost their culture, heritage, religious beliefs, etc.

        We are caught up in a whirlwind of human pillagers who evolved from cold solid ice climes where meat was the only source of food! They killed to survive then and it is what they continue to do even now when it is no longer necessary. They are like raw meat eating canivores which attack and take and psycholigically know no other way to live.

    • The populous still can’t seem to understand what type of social structure this is, how it came to be, and how many innocent people suffer and die here and abroad so that those who actually hold power here can continue their same deeds around the world!
      Mr. Obama is nothing more than a tool they use to represent them! When they had financial troubles in South Africa Their Idea was to remove Mandela from Prison and use him until they could get things almost back to normal! Here, they are using Mr. Obama for a number of reasons and “blacks” are not even in the top 100 reasons to use a “black-face” in this ever changing world!
      Obama is white and black and he is not our friend! He is working for the most powerful and wealthiest cons, manipulaters, and pillagers in the world!

      Lots of issues are connected which give clues to what we are dealing with, but everyone seems so tied up in mental fantasy and greed, etcetera, that most will never be able to connect ‘all’ of the dots!

      • Oh yeah, brother you and I can definitely connect the dots, but we are few and far between. The evidence of what they are using him for is staring us in the face every day.

        Why else would black boys be murdered or incarcerated BEFORE they have a chance to grow up????

        The only way to combat the genocide planned is to:

        Support the single mothers with the babies.

        Stop blaming teenage children for NOT MAKING grown up decisions. Demand that the govt does its job to protect them when the single mother cannot. Protecting children used to be a huge priority in American Govt.

        Personally I benefited enormously from govt protection after I became an orphan at 7 years of age. The govt made sure I had a home, in school, paid for college, gave me jobs I never dreamed blacks would ever do. THE GOVT STEPPED IN AND PROTECTED THIS ORPHAN GIRL.

        WHY ARE THEY NOT DOING IT FOR TODAY’S YOUTH WHO HAVE SO MUCH POTENTIAL AND PROMISE.

    • You are amazingly dumb. As long as Dr. Boyce’s tax dollars pay for obama to live in a mansion, have servants at his beck and call, ride in govt limos and planes, and earns a govt salary ALL OF US, INCLUDING DR. BOYCE IS HIS BOSS, AND WE HAVE A RIGHT AND OBLIGATION TO CRITIQUE HIS PERFORMANCE. HE IS A PUBLIC SERVANT. HE IS NOT YOUR d**n KING OR DICTATOR.

      GO TO SCHOOL YOU DUMB LOUT! HIS JOB IS TO SERVE ALL THE PEOPLE. INCLUDING YOUR BLACK DUMB SELF.

  2. Personally, I’m getting tired of this political bullshyt! The election is over, and now it’s time do something about these killings of our people, and the treatment, of these racist pigs and cracker citizens, who are killing our people!!!

    The media has negroid’s minds on this garbage to keep them from the REAL issues…RACISM!!! We need to start talking about boycotting, teaching our own children, and to start teaching a Black Liberation Theology because these screachas ain’t talking about NOTHING, but to get their pockets fat!

    NEGROID’S MINDS NEED TO BE LIBERATED!!!

    If O’Drama was a cracker, a chili choker, an arab, or an asian, he still would be CONTROLLED.

    AIN’T NOBODY GONNA SAVE US, HELP US, PATRONIZE US, BUT US!!!

    • @Derrick. We are dealing with people who take over whole nations and bomb them with nukes, and round up citizens and put them into internment camps, and send jobs to nations which use slave labor and so on.
      I’ve thought about these kind of people, who had our ancestors as slaves, and sold fathers from mothers, and raped children and so on. I realized that if these people can continue to do what they do today they are capable of enslaving people again in the very same way they had been doing! During that period many Africans died because they refused, and many Native Americans died because they refused! Today many people are dying and suffering because they are defenseless and refuse! We are literally defenseless in our own country! Those who control half of the world have been well ahead of us for centuries, and they will commit grave genocide to remain so!

      Africans are indeed great warriors but we didn’t evolve eating only meat and blood, and the chemicals created in our bodies don’t generally lend us to be as vile and ferocious as those who easily enslaved our ancestors, and who easily, without conscience or hesitation, nuked Japan! It takes a special kind of psychopath to do the things that brought the world to this point. Do not underestimate them now!

      • What you say is true, most of the world seems to be oblivious to the fact that we are all living under a global system of apartheid–just think of the power dynamics that exist worldwide and the conditions of the majority of the world’s people and it’s apparent. Where we disagree is your assessment of these people’s ‘power’, it’s illusory and transitory. And they are NOT superhuman, if cut they bleed just like you and I. And they could not remain in power and continue to subjugate people of color without or complicity and deferrence. WE KEEP THIS SH%T GOING & we can SHUT IT DOWN.

        • Spelling error..’without our complicity and deferrence.’

        • We always had the power to SHUT IT DOWN, but ignorant negro man are too d**n greedy and selfish to say “NO, I WONT BE A SELLOUT UNCLE TOM” AND “NO I WONT VOTE FOR A SELL OUT UNCLE TOM.”

          Guess what, when you dont sell out you GET RESPECT. I’ve done it many times in my work place.

          The republicans dont respect obama because he licked their boots and kissed their butts, and agreed to abandon black causes or even say the word black LOL, and now obama is MAD as h**l because he did all that and they still dont respect him LOL LOL He has no integrity. Why would they respect him???

          Michelle was his first and only black girlfriend, and he married her only for political reasons. That’s why he works so hard to play the perfect couple.

      • @Wizard G:

        Good points! This food is making Black people docile and defenseless. Don’t leave out the water, either. Dr. Francis Cress Welsing said in one of her lectures, that the water has chemi(kills) in it to make people homosexuals.

        I read that baby formula contains JET FUEL!!! This is why our babies and children are growing up with all of these dis-eases. When I came up only grown people had cancer, tb, diabetes. Now, our children are growing up with this man-made mess.

        Welsing said some of the animals in the water have turned to homosexuals. After I thought about it, I said this was perhaps the reason why BP purposefully spilled that oil in the ocean, so they could contaminate it with chemi(kills). In some parts of the world, they don’t even want their people eating anything that came from that oil spill.

        This is some serious stuff, not a conspiracy! What most people don’t OVERstand is that the MAJORITY of conspiracies are True! It’s a mind game, and negroids are so involved with xtianity, they don’t know how to THINK on their own. What the media puts out there is what they beLIEve.

        There are three forms of genocide: The Media, This racist Educational System, and Religion.

        I WILL NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THESE DEMONS…NEVER!!!

        • why dont you people know that, that CRACK IS MAKING YOU DEFENSELESS, DOCILE AND A SLAVE TO IT????

          Derrick you might be too young to know what black people were like before crack. But I remember and remember well. We had a few alcoholics here and there acting a fool, and now we have a HUGE percent of our population cracked up and acting a fool, poisoning themselves and dieing of strokes and heart disease and overdoses.

    • How about you stepping up too the plate and start the boycotting,the black liberation movement etc so that you can save black folks talk is cheap it’s putting your words into action that matters that’s what Boyce Watkins,and Cornel West and others do Yakk yakk yakk

  3. @ bro D ..They are all bought and paid for by the special interest and fatcat lobbyists that get their interest tended to before anyone else. Political pimps and nothing else resides in DC and in my home statehouse! ! They don’t give a d**n bout us. I’m listening to d**k durbin and Lindsey Graham argue about taxes and entitlement reform on ABC now. Pure bullshit! ! Hotep..

  4. We develop an economy within this economy and shop with one another create sussues (cooperative savings) or we are not gonna have any independence and always be at they Beck and call of the powers that be. Its up to us to save us! ! Hotep

    • @Imhotep. We don’t study those who enslaved our ancestors and decemated the Native American Population, but they always study us! They watch us,the discriminate and deny us, they kill us, they encarcerate us, the experiment on us to improve their health, and to find more ways to exterminate us, when they choose to, etc.
      There have been many times when “blacks” have built towns and created wealthy infrastructures within this ‘Eurocentric infrastructure’, but in most cases when “we” got too good and achieved too much, they sent out murderers and instigators to tear down what was built! Our greatest leaders, whom most of us would listen to, were quickly silenced by murder or whatever!
      You can look across the African diaspora and see what the “Anglo-elite” are capable of doing to nations, and understand that they do not like for us to reach levels too high, and they will pillage, burn, and murder to achieve a reduction in our positive activity, or that of anyone they wish to! Look what they do to most African nations and you’ll see that we are not much safer than those countries who’s people are made to turn on each other, and who are suggested to use rape as a weapon, and children as soldiers, etc. Exactly where do you think these kind of vile and vicious suggestions come from? Surely not the minds of people with melanin in their skin and love in their hearts! If Africans were as ruthless as our “Anglo-elite” ‘benefactors’ we would be the powerful ‘elite’ and they would be the conquered!

      They study us, and they contol and manipulate our minds with all sorts of tools, including our beloved “God” beliefs, of which they infected our ancestors with, and they in turn passed it on to us!

      Haiti tried to build their country and the US “Anglo-elite” and their cohorts, and the French etc, made sure that they were kept poor, starving, and suffering! We should know who to blame for ours and the world’s misery, but alas, they have psychologically countered that with propaganda too! There is no end to this because those who contructed this madness are light-years ahead of us and as ruthless as ever!

      The only answer to the world’s woes is if somehow the world could end wealth accumulation by individuals and groups, so that all great wealth would be used to ‘heal the world’. But these vile psychopaths make sure that their wealth is never considered or touched! They would rather annihlate the world than to give up their great hoards of wealth because without wealth they would have no power to pay mindless humans of all ilk, to do their insane will!

      • WHAT!!!!
        None of your comments are based on factual information!

        What you feel or what you think is not the same as facts!

        If it’s not fact it has no value except to excite others who live in a world of fanciful bits of imagination and half truths!

        Information is knowledge and we are greatly lacking true knowledge because so much of the information we receive is tainted thus we remain know-nothings due to receiving erroneous information! Stop it!

        • What in his comments is a lie? Take the emotion & passion out of his delivery and tell me WHAT part of what he wrote is NOT TRUE? It’s unfortunate that so many people can have TRUTH staring them right in the face and b/c of fear choose to see around it, underneath it or choose to simply ignore it. This world is upside down & a$$backwards. Everything most of us believe to be true is a carefully constructed LIE where good is presented as evil or threatening; black is white; criminals presented as ‘justice seekers’ or law enforcement; sociopaths/psychopaths are deciding who/what is sane–how can anybody think that any good is going to come of this unless there is a seismic change? If there is a such thing as h**l, we are living in it now. And when you think about it that way, who ELSE but SATAN would be ruling?

    • Imhotep… Your reply has absolutely nothing to do with the article. However, your reply should be the subject of the discussion we should be having.
      Peace and respect

  5. We love Bill Clinton , i think it’s more about HOPE & how is out there doing battle on your behalf .

  6. bibbidy bobbidy boo

  7. theres a dark and tainted side to all who still cant believe
    that theres a black guy at the desk. EVERYONE BUT OBAMA
    IS SAFE FROM BEING A MIXED GENERATION.
    please need nothing to change you from your
    original image. no toothpaste, deoderant, water,food,
    clothes, money and shelter.and for some females. shaven kits.
    do worry yurself with color. without the basic necessities you would grow up a s**t smelling bad odor speakin adult running wild b**t naked through the city eating humans. is that what you prayed 4??

  8. Republicans Stop Sabotaging The American People

    The people have spoken: Obama 2012!

  9. The fact of the matter is that Barack Obama is who God intended him to be, so why speculate. To that matter, what if any of us were another race. We would not be who we are. I am proud to be ME.

    • @Janice. There is no such thing as separate races when it comes to humans. We are all one race! The people who have filled the populace with the idea of people being of different race, are the same people who have been pillaging the world for centuries, and who have infected the minds of all they conquer with “God” beliefs.
      Imagine what your African culture whould be had the Anglos not stolen your ancestors from your country! What kind of languages, what kind of traditions passed down from individual African nations and tribes?
      All of that is gone and all we are left with are ficticious beliefs, and fractured “American-Slave” traditions, etc.
      If we were to track our African heritage, it would not lead us to a belief in ‘Jesus Christ’ or the ‘Holy Bible’.. Those infections were perpetrated on everyone by the ‘conquering hoards’ who continue to do so to this day! They are fortunate in that humans tend to help them, once they have been brainwashed they try desperately to brainwash others! Many of the Native Americans here were murdered specifically because they wouldn’t accept such “Christian” beliefs! Now they continue to suffer! Even those who did take on these ‘Eurocentric’ beliefs! We continue to suffer too, but many of us are oblivious to many things, because our minds have been thoroughly tampered with for centuries! It’s insane that humans believe the concoctions of “the ruling class”, but it is obvious that most believe the majority of the propaganda and various garbage the “filthy rich” and totally ‘psychopathic’ ruling class dispenses! It’s no wonder we are all running around helter skelter!
      We are one earthly family, one race, but we are made divided and crazy by those who would rule us and the world!
      Meanwhile those “rulers” continue to pillage, rape, destroy, and commit genocide all over the world while still teaching to believe in God,Jesus Christ, and the bible! Why can’t people see their own insanity? If they believe these things they are open to believe almost anything, and believe they do!

      • Should we believe in perhaps that Loving, “cut their heads
        off Mohammed”

        Comments like yours do a lot to keep so many of us in such a state. Unable to cope, thinking everyone is against us, all the problems we face are the fault of someone else, never our own doing.

        It’s someone else’s fault we didn’t get an education at the free schools, or speak proper English so we can’t even get a job as a customer service rep. . It’s someone else’s fault grown men wear there pants below there b**t, it’s someone else’s fault that we drink up all of that liquor and do all the drugs.

        You should be building up those we can save. Let people believe, when the end time comes it may be you that was insane!

        • Onesilverbac, you are simply regurgitating things you have either heard others say in the media, in your environment or in your isolated church–you know the one where people talk to themselves and rarely go outside and talk with the people or help make a difference.

          The fact is that policy plays a significant role in determining a person’s life journey. That does not mean a person cannot work hard to change the outcome, however. But personal responsibility without policy reform and enactment is often a failure. For example, a person lives in a metropolis. This person has been looking for work for a year. The person has electrical skills and experience in construction. It turns out, there are three openings the person could fill, today. There is a problem, however: The jobs are located in the suburbs, about a 40 minute drive one way. The person does not own a car, and public transportation does not travel that far or on that route.

          The scenario is real and people go through this, daily. There is an opportunity to create policy that encourages job creation in the inner city and public transportation that travels to suburban areas where many times the jobs are located. If fact, many black find it difficult to find adequate routes to get around the city to employment, education and healthcare needs.

          Schools that cannot compete because they lack the basic resources: room space, updated and often enough books, adequate technology, qualified and caring teachers (because we pay them so poorly). Yes, policy is a big part of the problem and personal irresponsibility alone is not going to overcome the issues.

          By the way, whites are the biggest drug users in American and the they commit the majority of crime–and it is not because they out number other groups. They are the typical criminals. The media feeds you an imagine of poor black and brown people and you go with it without question. Yes, we need to take responsibility, but we need to hold Obama and other politicians accountable, as well.

  10. Enough of the what ifs and focus on what really is. What really is is that a bi-racial child of an African father and a white mother was raised in a racist,civil rights era of black pride and justice in America by white maternal grandparents. White people want any and everyone to believe that their God is on their side. In the Civil War, white red-neck rebels really believed that slavery and injustice was alright because it was in the Bible, forget the seeking deliverance part. Jim Crow and KKK were preached from the pulpit to the pews and these white folks sought amens. God guided black men during a time of outright racial unrest and injustice in Malcolm X and Martin Luther King. It was destined for a black President to be and with so much emphasis placed on America being a Judeo-Christian society it really tickles me that these American adages “all men are created equal”, liberty and justice for all,and others, one gets the impression that America is for the white man, their God is not the God of the Bible and all other races of people that the white man has killed. enslaved or intered has no right to the Presidency. Then the we the people for the people and by the people made it possible.

  14. I think you all failed to respond to the question , ‘what if Obama were white?’ He would be hailed “An American Hero” because he rescued us from the brink of a depression,saved GM which allowed many workers in the auto industry to “live the American dream”, Obama also killed Osama Bin Laden, ended the war in Iraq and continued to remain dignified by racists who questioned his citizenship and loyalty not only to this country, but to the First Lady, Michelle Obama,his girls, his mother-in-law,and his cabinet. That is part of the reason he was re-elected so quickly. America needs and wants a “quality human being” to lead them. If he were white,there would be so many accolades related to his accomplishments, it would become exaustive!
    I am a black woman who loves the “First Family”. It gives me satisfaction the White House occupants are users of a “do rag” and a “hot comb” as this is a testament to how far we have come as a people. Let’s start at the local and state levels to bring about equity and real inclusion in America. When we become a STRONG” voice the President and Federal Gov’t will take our concerns seriously. Perhaps, we need to form, non-violent protests to re-gain entry in the American Dream, where ALL have at least parity, otherwise we as a people will be shoved under the rug and newly immigrants will (sop up the gravy) We need to become very vocal, again and give our President to make a commitment to stand up for us as well. We do not know when America will elect another black president, therefore we need to show the world again that we are a beautiful, talented and strong people. San Diego, CA

    • @MaryAnn. You should read ‘Behold A Pale Horse’. It was written by a “white” ex-Naval intelligence officer, ex-secret society member. At the beginning of the book he wrote that he was divulging these secrets because he wanted to do something for his children or daughter. He also said that he would probably be murdered for divulging secrets in his book. He was attacked by Sheriffs, etc., and murdered at his home during the first administration of GW Bush!
      If you take the initiative to seek the book and read at least half you might see the way the country really is, who is in charge and what their agenda is. If you begin to do research into more information concerning the “elite” and the machinations surrounding them. You might not be able to handle so much truth. Some people are not handling the things they find out too well. Even soldiers are committing suicide at alarming rates, but that’s only a fraction of what is happening to us. Read any of Randall Robinsons books and you might be more enlightened! But I would submit that most people would rather just live in ignorance than know what reality is really like. Good luck!

  15. Obama’s color is of no concern to me. His actions and promises of future action disgust me and would disgust me if he were green. The race card is played as a tool of censorship, to silence dissent. When people wise up to that fact liberals will lose their most powerful weapon.

  16. Your questions are all rhetorical of course. If Obama were completely white, no one would ever have heard of him. He has no qualifications for elected office. His sole accomplishment in life was declaring as “black” and being able to read–badly–a teleprompter. Deciding to and declaring himself “black” was really the only real “work” he ever did. And you still complain 24/7 about racism. What more do you want?

    • Sounds like hype to me. The use of the mind takes a lot of energy and is work. Bringing concepts into reality takes the application of foresight and wisdom. That takes being influenced by The Creator Himself. But the direct proportion of the resultant blessing or the curse is at a level reflective of the obedience or the sin of the general population. The real question is “Does God support oppression in the guise of Aryan Supremacy.” If you will oppress your fellow man, who is made in the image of God then you, by the expressed content of your character would do the same thing to God and his children. Now what loving father would let that program go forward? Vengeance is just over the horizon and it will be set in motion by The Almighty Himself. There is no Divine Nature in oppression. But there is a lot of demonic activity.

        Preach!!..exactly. I always think it crazed that a MAN would actually think he can BEST the CREATOR who created everything!! Like you have to be a dullard to think that. It’s simple, what goes around comes around. There is NO way that sociopathic criminals in power are going to be able to keep what they have acquired thru theft, brutality, murder, exploitation, slavery and manipulation. There will be comeuppance. And it will be as pervasive and unstoppable as has been their bloodthirst.

        • These demonic caucasoid devils are destroying planet Mother Earth. Now, they are up in space messing with the Creators universe. Believe me, they are not just flying around the globe for the fun of it. These demons are trying to find a place on Mars, the Moon, and other livable planets, once they destroy the world.

          Star Wars is coming because Japan has entered the ‘space race’. Remember, people thought Orlsen Wells was crazy, but his books came to past. These demonic devils only know one thing…WAR and CONTROL!!!

          Read the article: China and the US: space race or miscommunication?

          These demonic devils are already selling tickets to Mars, and these caucasoids are buying them because they know these cracker mad scientists are going to blow up the world.

          They already are melting the world down as I type!

          Peace

    • Buck, Bush had no qualifications other than playing the race, wealth, and relationship card. He was an alcoholic who did not get a real job until he became governor. How many people can do basically nothing until they are in their 40s and become governor? So let us be honest: Obama was as qualified as Bush and that was enough.

      Oh, and talk about barely being able to read? Are you older enough to remember Bush’s speeches? Everyone cringed when he approached a camera or microphone. So when you mentioned Obama’s bad reading, you lost your opportunity to be taken seriously.

  17. America is still in denial.Captives and captors alike are still suffering from the post traumatic syndrome of slavery.Every place you go to fill an application one of the questions is your race.Some people only voted against president Obama, not for the issues.Neither Mitt Romney of anyone in his family ever served in the US army.Haiti is the poorest country in the hemisphere because they are still annoyed that a band of African captive slaves beat Napolion’s so called modern European army and chased it out of Haiti. If President Obama were European so much obstacles would not be put in his way.If you put slavery on the ballot you would be surprises how much “YES” you would get.Until they stop pushing this no name for it act that build America under the rug there will be no peace.Haiti became independent in 1804 and America did not recognize it until 1862.This is only a very small part of the true history of European racism.

    • I voted against the slavery and tyranny of socialism, and for the inalienable rights of The Constitution. Haiti has nothing to do with it.
      No discussion of the issues can occur until the race card is burned and it’s ashes buried.

      • To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. It is harvest time. The seeds that have been sown are bearing fruit. The race card has the sweet taste of the wine of oppression. The oppressors got drunk with it and the oppressed took notes. Final exams are here. Did they pass?

  19. What if! He is a white man look at what he has left behind him. And black people hadn’t seen anything yet. To answer the question Black people would still be complaining as usually.

  20. If Barack Obama was white, his eloquent speaking and two autobiographies would have well served him as a motivational speaker, perhaps a low level politician, maybe a congressman after proving himself at lower levels to be effective. He would never have been elected a U.S. Senator, nor President. President Clinton was correct about the fairy tale story – but this is turning into a nightmare.

  21. Wait a minute – that’s double standard. Have you questioned if Herman Cain is black? Have you questioned if Allen West is Black? Have you questioned the Blacksphere guy is black? Do you know these Black people have denounced being African-Americans and called us Black people names such as brain-washed, BIT suckers, not as smart as them etc.? You have never heard President Obama use such derogatory words. We should look at broad picture of what President Obama has done to us Blacks and in fact to poor people of all races and creed. First is the Affordable Care Act. Presidents after presidents had envisioned to have ACA. But they would not dare. In fact none would dared put forward in Congress – except maybe Clinton with help from Hillary. Carter, Clinton and Bush were dumbfounded that President Obama succeeded to have ACA passed. If you have money or don’t you can go and have doctor see you. Don’t forget President Obama has opened door for poor Blacks, poor Whites and other poor minority access to professional training and even higher education. You better be hearing in Black women and men are now going to 2 year colleges and universities. President Obama has opened door for everybody to improve their lives. All we have to do is push ourselves and our kids to excel. Those pants should be pulled up to avoid seen as if we are hooligans. Did you hear when Romney said: “if you want to start business – go and borrow money from your parents? If your parents don’t have money – that’s too bad.” But President Obama has created fund for business to retool and those who want to start new business to borrow money from fund. We Blacks should not be afraid of starting business. I have one although struggling. Romney would have closed door. Now President Obama is fighting to reduce payroll tax for us poor and middle class people. Romney and GOP groups are sad that their friends millionaires will have their tax increase. I have said before if you believe you are smart, care that President Obama succeeds; care that you can help Black community, please send your resume to him. If you doubt your resume or application will be lost take to NAAP CEO Jealous of Rev. Al Sharpton. These will take your name and resume directly to President Obama. Please calm down and take action before 2016.

    • And what about the NDAA? Where he, and he alone can decide you are a ‘terrorist’ and can be indefinitely detained without a trial, judge, jury, proof, no way for you to protest or seek re-dress..what about the overthrow of how many sovereign nations, including Libya. What about AFricom and it’s ‘re-colonization’ of the african continent? What about this fool demanding that S. African prez keep former Haitian prez Aristide ‘hostage’ in S. Africa and not allow him back in this hemisphere? Can you imagine if Dumbya had of done that? What about all of these drone bombings in nations, which is just a precursor for what’s coming to a hood near you in the future. Don’t think it won’t. I could go on, but people who want to see the truth will and people who are simply satisfied with the ‘illusion’ of indirect power b/c a black family lives in the wh, will continue to delude themselves and make excuses.

  23. The real question should be what if President Obama was not half white. Would he have been chosen by the kingmakers to run for President. Interesting is the fact he is half white did not show through in his complexion simply because his father’s gene pool was stronger. His children have the same strength of genetic make up because his wife evidences a strong gene pool. Usually half white Black Americans have lighter to nearly caucasian/albinism skin, eye and hair color because many Black Americans have so called white folks in the family tree – the close family tree! At the end of the day if half white Black Americans inter-marry with so called caucasians the produce lighter skin offspring and can also produce dark skinned – the dominant gene is the Black. Caucasian is a mutation/a degree of albinism. Science has established this. The real issue is does being half withe or half chinese affect the mindset – influence the psychological- the wants and desires – in anyway.

  24. This article is pointless. Just because he has a wide nose and his skin is a bit darker, doesn’t mean he is black. Obama is half white, and half black, therfore he is neither. The whole issue with those other politicians has to do with the fact that his FATHER is black. God, the is worked full stupid people….!

    • John, you must be white because you do not have to know a d**n thing about race and how it is lived in America. Obama can choose to define himself anyway he desires; however, American will define him based on his skin color. And to many Americans, he is black. Period.

      But white privilege means you do not need to bother yourself with those facts. As you said, the world is full of stupid people.

  25. *the world is

  26. President Obama should not be held responsible for many of the problems that affect Black America. The crumbling of the Black family fueled in the main by an out of wedlock birth rate of 70% is appalling. Coupled this with a high school drop-out rate and you have part of the answer. The responsibilities are ours. Individually and collectively we must do better.

    • Black people keep spreading the 70% of Black children being born out of wedlock appauling lie. Their is nothing new about the out of wedlock babies in the Black community. What is new is the “method” that our government is now using to do its counting.

      Educated Blacks are having “fewer” children, while the uneducated Blacks are doing the same that they always did. Nothing is new about their out of wedlock babies.

      Read Tim Wise’s book “Color Blind.” Then, help to get Black people to stop spreading this nonsense about 70% out of wedlock, as though this is some new phenomenon.

      • “their” should be “there.”

      • What these caucasoids don’t tell us is that MORE caucasoid females have babies out of wedlock, and ABORT their babies, more than Black women!!! This is why the percentage is so high with our women because the majority of Black women don’t want to ‘kill’ their newborns.

        Although the figures are inflated by the government, it is around really around 48% to be exact. I know Black women, who work for planned parenthood, therefore, these are FACTS!!! What the lying azz government don’t tell us, is that they are using stats for a certain age group of Black women, who have babies. These white teen females are having MORE babies out of wedlock, than Black teens, but they abort them, which leaves the stats for Black women to look higher.

        Caucasoid females once aborted their babies with ‘back alley’ doctors, and went overseas to abort their babies because they had the money…this was during the ’60′s when abortions were illegal. These white gals would have babies by Black ball players, and would abort them because they didn’t want to raise a Black child, plus their rich cuacasoid parents wanted them to continue going to school.

        The media NEVER runs down this Truth. They always make US look like criminals when they are the ORIGINAL criminals and ‘back door abortionist’.

        I saw tom wise in person years ago, and white students walked out on him because they couldn’t stand to see one of their own, talk about them, especially when it was the Truth.

        Peace

        • Giving the percentage of children born out of wedlock is useless and misleading without given the narrative to make sense of it all. Babara is correct: More educated women are choosing not to marry before having a child. The numbers are inflated when this information is left out.

          We see the numbers but not the analyses. Raw numbers without a narrative is useless and intentionally misleading. Blacks should be careful not to do the dirty work of certain groups who want to paint black people in a negative light by presenting lies packaged as empirical research.

  27. His name would not be Barack Obama if he was white. And I doubt that Michele Robinson would be married to him. He may have been a republican if he was white. We would not give one bit a hoot about him. And I am not just saying black people.

  28. Boyce, how well did you book on George Bush sell? Also, why are you talking about “Our” love for the President, when you know it doesn’t include you, Cornell West, and some other thunderhead n****s?

  29. ACTOR JAMIE FOXX AT SOUL TRAIN MUSIC AWARDS: ‘GIVE AN HONOR TO…OUR LORD & SAVIOR BARACK OBAMA’

    This is all over the net, I went to the Blaze.com and read some of the comments from Black and Whites.

    You might check it out and see why people pay little attention to us, and are beginning to despise us.

    Black people you had better get it together quickly.

    check it out, don’t make excuses for Foxx, ask why you didn’t take a stand when he said it.

  30. Barack is a white man.

  31. Man has a white mother. Raised with whites. Genetically some black but culturally white. So question is what if he was a black man? Culture or environment trumps genes.

  32. DR Boyce, I am getting fed up with you RACE BAITING. Find some REAL black news to report! Stop always wailing about racism! DO something! what have YOU done for the black community?!

  33. I`m not even American, but i have learned to love and respect your country, what I have seen during all these years is that “Blacks” don`t grasp all the privileges and opportunities that this great country gives you, most of the so call “Blacks” only know to “Cry Wolf” I`m not the one to stand here and say that I have the answers to all the problems that “Blacks” have in America, but I really think that if you try hard enough you can succeed. Now talking about “Barack Obama” you don`t even start to understand his importance to the “Black World” he is, of or more important to “US” that he is to “Black America”, he shows the White establishment in our countries that a Black Man can be intelligent, eloquent and smart, because if you believe that you have it hard just think of the rest of the “Black World” that don`t have a voice in the Politics of our nation, are under the poverty line and only can survive in that atmosphere by “Bribbing” or outsmarting the White Establishment, you are blessed by having a Statesman Like Barack Obama, if we had some one close to having the atributes that this man show; we`ll be better off in this part of the world. “Just remember that you have Blacks in almost every country in this globe and all of them are worst off than the so call Blacks in America.

    • If you have been in America for a short time and was taught in your native country that America is the land of milk and honey and blacks do not take advantage of it, then you do not have anything to add to the discussion that is meaningful. I have had conversations with Africans from different countries and they believe the white media creation of black people: We are all lazy, don’t want to learn, are violent. and so forth.

      The ones who believe these lies do not have the ability to hear facts to counter those lies. They are a lost cause. I do not know your nationality, but you do not know what you are talking about.

  34. Dr. Watkins, one thing I know for sure is that if Barack Obama was a white man, he wouldn’t be getting all this petty bullcrap from you, West, Smiley and other negros (mostly male).

  35. What if Boyce was white? He certainly would have been fired a long time ago from Syracuse university, because of incompetence. But the university is afraid that if they fire him, he’d scream racism, and sue them. Boyce, is an ignorant, jealous a*s wannabe, that want to be recognized as a Black leader, and called upon for advice by the news media, and the white house, but it will never happen. He will sell his own mama, to achieve his goals, just like he sold out President Obama, to the tea party republicans. This guy, is the scum of the earth. Remember when he asked “What if Obama, looked like Wesley Snipes”? He insinuated that looking like Wesley Snipes, was somehow demeaning, because of his strong black features. Boyce, has just as much white blood in him, than President Obama, but at least Obama, is a real Black man, married to a beautiful Black woman.

  36. Boyce, get over it. In spite of you and your side kicks, President Obama was re-elected. Try listening to Eric Waltree because you might learn something. You come across as a bitter, sorry a*s ‘n***a’ along with Yvette, Cornel and West. We don’t need leading Blacks aka Judas Goats but Black leaders who have something more than hate filled rants.

  37. Well I must say that all of you have some valid points about this issue. In black culture your pigmentation dictated who or what your character is about(light/dark skin). It is sad that this issue still goes on til this day. I am darker than my brother and caught the most h**l because of it but overcame the “brown paper bag” syndrome and went to be successful. Pres. Obama is a black man in a white world trying get all of us a fair deal and has a hard time trying to get fairness for us. He cannot be focused on our issues and even if he could, congress would stop him anyway.
