    Wow…

    This was comparable to a walk back in time.

    Did you see Granny’s Fair Isle sweater from the 80’s?

    Blue collar, Appalachia at its’ finest.

    On a brighter note:

    Not mine…I’m merely the messenger.

    Who is Barack Obama?… His past finally EXPOSED!

    From Daily Kos:

    Obama Helped Stranded Stranger 20 Years Ago
    by foxsucks81

    October 5, 2008

    The Norwegian newspaper VG has reported a truly amazing story about a newly-wed trying to get to Norway to be with her husband, and the stranger who helped pay an unexpected luggage surcharge. The blog“Leisha’s Random Thoughts” has translated the story.

    It was 1988, and Mary Andersen was at the Miami airport checking in for a long flight to Norway to be with her husband when the airline representative informed her that she wouldn’t be able to check her luggage without paying a 100 surcharge:

    When it was finally Mary’s turn, she got the message that would crush her bubbling feeling of happiness.
    -You’ll have to pay a 103 dollar surcharge if you want to bring both those suitcases to Norway, the man behind the counter said.
    Mary had no money. Her new husband had travelled ahead of her to Norway, and she had no one else to call.
    -I was completely desperate and tried to think which of my things I could manage without. But I had already made such a careful selection of my most prized possessions, says Mary.

    As tears streamed down her face, she heard a “gentle and friendly voice” behind her saying, “That’s okay, I’ll pay for her.”

    Mary turned around to see a tall man whom she had never seen before.
    -He had a gentle and kind voice that was still firm and decisive. The first thing I thought was, Who is this man?
    Although this happened 20 years ago, Mary still remembers the authority that radiated from the man.
    -He was nicely dressed, fashionably dressed with brown leather shoes, a cotton shirt open at the throat and khaki pants, says Mary.
    She was thrilled to be able to bring both her suitcases to Norway and assured the stranger that he would get his money back. The man wrote his name and address on a piece of paper that he gave to Mary. She thanked him repeatedly. When she finally walked off towards the security checkpoint, he waved goodbye to her.

    Who was the man?

    Barack Obama.

    Twenty years later, she is thrilled that the friendly stranger at the airport may be the next President and has voted for him already and donated 100 dollars to his campaign:

    -He was my knight in shining armor, says Mary, smiling.
    She paid the 103 dollars back to Obama the day after she arrived in Norway. At that time he had just finished his job as a poorly paid community worker* in Chicago, and had started his law studies at prestigious Harvard university.

    Mary even convinced her parents to vote for him:

    In the spring of 2006 Mary’s parents had heard that Obama was considering a run for president, but that he had still not decided. They chose to write a letter in which they told him that he would receive their votes. At the same time, they thanked Obama for helping their daughter 18 years earlier.

    And Obama replied:

    In a letter to Mary’s parents dated May 4th, 2006 and stamped ‘United States Senate, Washington DC’, Barack Obama writes**:
    ‘I want to thank you for the lovely things you wrote about me and for reminding me of what happened at Miami airport. I’m happy I could help back then, and I’m delighted to hear that your daughter is happy in Norway. Please send her my best wishes. Sincerely, Barack Obama, United States senator’.
    The parents sent the letter on to Mary.

    Mary says that when her friends and associates talk about the election, especially when race relations is the heated subject, she relates the story of the kind man who helped out a stranger-in-need over twenty years ago, years before he had even thought about running for high office.

    Truly a wonderful story, and something that needs to be passed along in the maelstorm of fear-and-smear politics we are being subjected to right now.

    I am not suprised by the ignorance coming out of these people faces. These are people who have never left their communities, or interacted with anyone other than their own race. How do I know? They are my mothers parents, sisters,brothers,and other narrowminded relatives that live in utter stupidity. I am sorry folks but it’s people like this that suck all the enegry out of me. For me it’s personal, I am no better than them when it comes to race, I love my mother dearly, she may be the only white person i will ever love. I hate white people with a passion, if all my mothers relatives died I would have a party each time and sing “ding dong the witch is dead”…Let me go to class before i lose it in the student center.

    @ Yea I Said It —

    So sorry to feel your pain.

    I feel honored that you chose us to share your intimate thoughts.

    However, seek inside yourself first and change may find its’ way.

    It’s so liberating when you see people as people and not colors.

    Thanks for your bravery.

  8. Rocksee said

    Get more tissues ready…

    This is why I believe people can and want change.

    This is why I believe we’re better than silly monikers that are traded through the inadequacies of time and ignorance.

    Enjoy with me…

    Keep faith that people will rise above their comfort levels and agree to respect one and other.

    That video was sure spooky and full of way backs. They are so stuck on stupid.

    P.S. I am planing to purchase an island dedicated to all our stupid racist Americans.

    wow…..ignorance isnt bliss. that is so stupid. why the hell are some white people so scared? hmmmm he was raised by white people jackasses. his momma is white. and if i hear them talk about his middle name on more damn time…..like he named himself. if they had a book in this small ass hick town, i wonder how many of them could actually read it.

  11. beach chick said

    All I can do is SMDH at that!!!

    I have no words…and that doesn’t happen to often!

  12. Yea I Said It said

    @ Rocksee thank you. I see it and try to get past it. It’s my fault for lookin at the ignorance. I loved the youtube you shared, all I can say is WOW! that was beautiful.

    @ 1coolazzchic, you are soooo right, he did not name himself, they don’t care who raised him all they see is the hate from the words that came out of Palins mouth. It was the green light they needed to allow their hate to raise to the surface and think means a free for all. As much as McCain would like to believe he is above racist and hateful tactics he is’nt he allows Palin to use comment met to insite by any means necessary in my book. Notice they called him a terrorist and thats all from her words. All the fear mongering backfired and McCain may have tried to backpedal, just a tad to late. These people don’t need much to bring their true feelins to the forefront, they just needed a leader to get it started. Sara Palin….. Just my Opinion!

  13. 1coolazzchic said

    they use that word terrorist so loosely when it comes to him. that’s a very strong and dangerous word in the times we live in. hmm didnt palin support and dare i say lead alaska in tryin to become seperate from america….every time she says “joe six pack” she aint talkin bout us. she talkin bout her people in the trailer park named bubba, who have no job, a car of bricks in the front “yard”, calling their wives “mama” and scratching themselves while watching bill oreily, (if they have cable.) she aint talkin to us and she aint tryin to talk to us. that shows u that we arent important. *pumpin my brakes* lemme stop before i get pissed. and the white chick across the street is gettin on my nerves. this post done put her in danger and she dont even know it

    @ Yea I Said It, I truly admire you for not being a follower of what the “norm” is…Thank you for being able to think and reason for yourself. I hope sincerely that you find happiness and peace in your life. And all of us don’t live inside that stupid little box (RACISM)… THANKS

  15. w2m said

    Wow is all I can say.

  16. Yea I Said It said

    LAMO @ 1coolazzchic,

    @ Ucanb2, Thank you, since I have calm down please allow me to back up and say I truly do not hate all white people. It would not be fair to people that have nothing to do with my family. I thank all of you who read with an open mind even if i veer off course,all you have to say is pull up if I go there again. Not a good look when i calm down.

    @ Yea —

    Coming to a place where you can honest about who you are is cool…

    I like that about ‘cha!

  18. Smurfette said

    @ Rocksee, thanx for the post! Inspiring!

    @ Yea I Said It,

    I know that u have dealt with racism and it causes you to hate some white ppl! I have dealt wit it too, and being raised by my dad, who is also a black man from the south didn’t help! Im not sayin he didn’t raise me right, but not ALL whites are racist! I never knew this, being a black from GA. But when I lived in CA and then New England, I can honestly say I changed my racist views. Most of the people who have reached out to help me these past couple of years are white. Most of the ppl I work wit and talk to are white. I thinkk there are bad ppl in all races. But I have learned if I give everyone a chance no matter what they look like, I will get to know and like ppl of ALL races! I used to be a racist, and say white ppl this an white ppl that. Then I realized that was wrong. And I raise my daughter to treat everyone equal. We don’t use racist words in my house. I tell my daughter its okay to befriend anyone no matter if they are black, white, latino. She is being raised we don’t stereotype ppl and we don’t lump all ppl in one race together! We don’t make fun of small ppl and differently abled ppl or gay people. I teach her we are all special and everyone deserves a chance to be your friend. Just wanted to leave my thoughts!

    Where is our guy Jan these days?

    I was counting on him to give unique perspectives as we approach the home stretch.

    If you’re out there Jan I miss your brain…

    Bring it on!!

  20. Yea I Said It said

    @ Smurf, you are right on all fronts. My parents also tried and still try to teach my silbings and I the worth of people are not defined by their color, but their actions. he harbors no ill will towards them. Its when you are children of mixed race couples and growing up is when you hear all the racist comments. I have two brothers who carry a chip on their shoulder, with one living in Europe now looking for himself. I have three sisters, with one, very attractive and low self esteem, one who does not know what race she fits in with. One sister and myself takin everything said to and making it a case for murder. In the black community we are so accepted and no one ask us how come our hair and eyes are different. We started out going to school in Hoffman Estate, a far northwest suburb, with our school being 95% white,you can imagine the stares and comments we got, without fully understanding at first where it was coming from we fought alot. When we transfered and went to a 95% black highschool on the south side of Chicago we though we died and went to heaven. Our experience alone with my mothers family left us feeling a whole lot of ways, none of it good. School is my outlet alone with laughter from comments on this site. I have friends but sometimes you just want to talk to people that don’t know you and can give you a different point of view…… I can’t say Thank you enough to those of you that bring a different though and outlook.
