Nation's first black President quietly admits that he only celebrates half of Black History Month



(Dissociated Press) In a rare personal interview, President Obama confided to this reporter his mixed feelings about Black History Month.

The President spoke in the Oval Office for what turned out to be a surprisingly candid and reflective discussion of his feelings about our nation's annual month-long celebration of African-American history.

(DP) Sir, as our nation's first black president, you've taken an active role in speeches and ceremonies that the beginning of Black History Month. But many commentators have noticed that during the second half of the month you seem less involved. How would you respond to that"
"I kinda' thought people might have noticed it. I had hoped they wouldn't."
The President looked pained.
I respect Black History Month and all, but I'm sort of 50-50 about it. Honestly, after two weeks into February my heart really isn't in it anymore."
He as silent for a minute, and continued.
"For the first half of the month, I was really inspired. I went to ceremonies, spoke at colleges, read Fredrick Douglas' speeches and a bio of Oprah in the evenings."
The President paused, as if to consider how much he should tell. His eyes glistened.
"But by the second half of the month, it just doesn't seem relevant to me any more. I'm sorry about the way it sounds. I'm just not into it. Yesterday, Michelle wanted the whole family to dress up like Marcus Garvey. I told her I had some Executive Orders to sign. I didn't really, but my head's just not in it after the first two weeks."
So what then does the President do during the last two weeks?
"Honestly, I just like to sit around on the Oval Office couch for the second half of the month. Last night  I put on a sleeveless tee-shirt and a John Deere cap and snuck out with a couple of Secret Service guys to Walmart, grabbed a six-pack, and we came back and watched WWF and Jerry Springer re-runs. It just felt right to me."

  2. The 2/1/14 episode of Saturday Night Live had a very funny spoof on Black History Month: "28 Reasons."

  3. A white conservative male making fun of black history month and our half-black president. How original. Don't worry, It's OK because you have lots of black friends.

  4. Here's an antidote to the KW's Obamagasm--a video was that created by Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist Mark Fiore: "United States of Surveillance" (2:30).

    And even more fun from DroneF├╝hrer Barry: "United States Drops To 46th in Press Freedoms Under Barack Obama."

    1. So pointing out Egnor's mocking racism is an “Obamagasm”? You're wrong to think that support for Obama is the only reason someone could have a problem with Egnor's racism.

  6. I;m Canadian but insist there should be no black history month.
    There should never be a attention to a particular people in a nation if it means not the original and true people of the nation.
    If there is to be segregated history attention then only Yankee or southern peoples are worthy.
    there is no black history. its just people who are citizens being given special segregated attention.
    A native people should never allow this. They are not worthy of collective attention. Further its used to make hostile accusations against True americans and other identities in America.
    If these comments are true from Obama THEN he's telling me he wants to identity with true American men and not Africans.
    he is not a true American man if he's a African. Beer or not.

    In reality he was selected, ran, and voted for BECAUSE he was african.
    \All these motivations disqualifying him to be president in reality. A breaking of a social contract with these African immigrants with their hosts.
    Obama is not and never will be a AMERICAN president. He is a ethnic citizen who was quota-ed into President. A movie not a real history.
    I have no great problems with him except the issue of identity (though i'm conservative).
    He is as worse as many other bad presidents because he ran and was voted for because he was not AMERICAN.
    Too late OBAMA to try to say who have a heritage with true Americans or America. you are a foreigner. As a cAnadian i am more american then you.
    down with all non american segregated identity things like black history month.
    They must identity with american history. Patriots and conservatives missed a good begining point in all this Obama for first african president stuff.
    No too foreigners claiming anything in yoiur home and native land.
    no more immigrants and roll back if within the law.
    Obama is not Yankee, Southern, Protestant white, Catholic,non white or anything that is main street USA. He is a African. A sign of the times.
    Seems that way from Canada.
