“My image of Onyango, faint as it was, had always been of an autocratic man—a cruel man, perhaps. But I had also imagined him an independent man, a man of his people, opposed to white rule… What Granny had told us scrambled that image completely, causing ugly words to flash across my mind. Uncle Tom. Collaborator. House n***er.”

In one of the most remarkable passages in Barack Obama's "Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance," he uses the terms "collaborator," "Uncle Tom," and "House n***er" to describe someone he detests. That someone, it turns out, is his own grandfather! We have a striking phenomenon here: the first African American president using the N-word, and to refer to his own grandfather! Ordinarily this would be occasion for massive comment and analysis, but if there has been any, I am not aware of it.

So what could possibly cause the president to describe his own grandfather in this appalling way? The answer, it turns out, provides an important insight into Obama’s character. The president is not the healer and unifier that he said he was four years ago. Rather, he views people who disagree with him—including members of his own family—in terms of ideological kinship or betrayal. And by Obama’s standard, even his own grandfather is an ideological sellout deserving of insults and abuse.

I will help FFS out here....

Such cowardly lies from conservative fox news!!!

Cowardly cowardly cowardly

----------END FFS help----------

Like the saying goes what you see in public is just the tip of the iceberg. When B Hussein is chillin' in the hood with his boyz you can be sure that the language is quite different than at a WH press briefing.

Think about the expression that relates to "the one that yells the loudest". The libs do right so that just proves who the racists are.

This does demonstrate how easy it is to post a link!

No kidding sherlock. That is not SAYING it to another person. Nor is it proof he used the word elsewhere. He is talking about his grandfather, and using the term of the slave owners. It fits contextually, and Fox has no idea how he felt! Get real

Why are conservatives always such weaklings?

Why the desperation to validate your use of the word?

Yes, its in his book. Outside of this ONE use of the word in written text (WHICH SOMEBODY ELSE HAD TO FIND FOR YOU) what other instances are there. You calimed to have "hundreds of examples" in your google search, yet this is the ONLY one i could find.

Just hate if you want to hate, dont try to justify it with other people. Youre a conservative, hating is the foundation of your belief system!

Earlier this week, tea party activists and GOP lawmakers gathered near the Capitol to rail against an immigration reform bill passed by the Senate.

While the event was linked to a number of controversial figures, including an organizer who has argued for eugenics and called African-Americans a "retrograde species," that didn't deter Republicans like Rep. Steve King (Iowa) and Sens. Jeff Sessions (Ala.) and Ted Cruz (Texas) from showing up to join the chorus against a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants.

When Ken Crow -- a co-founder of the Tea Party Community -- stepped up to the microphone, however, George Zornick of The Nation said he was taken aback by the talk of "breeding" and racial purity that followed.
