What's Up With The White House Not Responding To Black College Invite Query?

There are 11 comments on the eurthisnthat.com story from Jun 1, 2009, titled What's Up With The White House Not Responding To Black College Invite Query?. In it, eurthisnthat.com reports that:

Seasoned journalist DeWayne Wickham posed the question to the White House, “Did the President get any invitations to speak at any HBCU’s?” and the White House acted as though that information was on some sort of gag order.

The President spoke at the Naval Academy, Notre Dame and Arizona State University.

April Ryan a white house correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks said that Howard University asked him, but the date conflicted with Notre Dame’s. Which would mean Notre Dame asked first right?

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said he didn’t know what schools asked or didn’t ask. So, now what?

Obama hates haznigs, I've told you this. Class trumps race and you aren't in his class.

Obama may have a black wife but that is as far as his blackness goes. He was raised by a white mother and later by a older white grandma and grandpa. So think about it. He has the mindset and allegiances to the white people first and foremost. He has lead a pretty much Ivy League existence. So it makes perfect sense that he accepted the invitations to the Ivy league colleges and dissed the black college.

What does his mother and grandparents have to do with his choice to visit Notre Dame? I don't this had anything to with his decision.

Because he has the mindset of a white man and makes decisions as one. He is not black orientated because of his white upbringing.

Yes, Obama will reveal his Muslim background soon, to compliment his African race. Obama does not identify with American blacks. He sees himself as better than the American black.
You said he didn't see himself as black, not "American black"...

Maybe because he knows politicatlly. Black Americans would get their panties in a bunch if he didn't speak at HBCU's.

If he did, I'm sure Rush, and Hannity would have spent weeks calling him the Black Peoples President.

Obama has the next 11 years to speak at a HBCU. Are you an Obama supporter?
