“Most people understand that if you are not caring for your family, then you are probably not the kind of person who is going to be caring for other people.” — Barack Obama, October 23, 2008
Granny Dunham, the rock in Barack Obama’s life was buried today, Obama couldn’t make the funeral. Granny Dunham has served her purpose during the campaign, as the ever important “rock of the family” yet “typical white person” in now President-elect Barack Obama’s life. After a silent, but both respected and disrespected foil in Obama’s campaign, she died election day. Obama made barely the slightest mention of her passing. Today he even skips her funeral.
Reread the first paragraph.
