I’m a White Guy?

One Dr. Drew gave me the worst day of my life. Another Dr. Drew might be giving me one of the best.

In a piece published yesterday at americanthinker.com, Dr. John C. Drew, an award-winning political scientist debunked the thought that our President is a black dude.

Said Dr. Drew:

TIME has just published pictures from Barack Obama’s prom night in 1979. For me, these photos are more evidence of something I have thought for a long time — young Obama seemed like a white guy.

Drew goes on to say that when he was in college, Obama was smart, hung out with white people and wasn’t angry–behavior obviously and only restricted to white people.
Here is the damning photo:

Drew wants to make sure that readers understand the weight of this image:

This ruse needs to end. The young Obama I knew was nothing like the young black people I knew at Occidental College. He did not come from an underprivileged background. He did not have any of the hostility to white people that I sometimes saw among blacks at Occidental College. All the reports we have so far indicate that young Obama was dating white women, hanging out with his white roommate — Phil Boerner — at Columbia, and generally living a white lifestyle.

Here, I’ve spent all this time getting my hair as bone straight as possible, learning to tolerate corsets, running away from rap and trying to keep my credit score up when all I really needed to do was not be poor, have 3 white friends and go on a school-sponsored trip with them. Hell, I did that in kindergarten when our teachers somewhat unwisely took us to an historical cemetery to discover what scarlet fever could do to a family.
Have I really been wasting that much time and energy? Does it really take nothing more than one white ex to be white yourself? What’s your favorite part of the “white lifestyle?” Let us know in the comments!
PS: I really don’t mind the corsets.


  1. My favorite part of the “white lifestyle” has to be having close white friends and speaking like “a white kid” (aka not slang). Things apparently only white people are allowed to have.

  2. I add to that, also taking part to an Erasmus (studying abroad for a semester or two in another European university). Once again I was the only black (outside) in all my classes and all the parties.

    1. Quite the opposite! I’m jealous!! Check out the blog, it’s all about my adventures in whiteness.

      I’ve never dated a black guy, I go to a ton of Renaissance Faires, I grew up in a subdivision called “Breckenridge,” and I only recently learned who Miles Davis and Yeezy are. I’ve even voted Republican. And I still get questions about The Help and Tyler Perry movies. When will people stop seeing me as just some weird black chick and finally see me for the whitey I am on the inside?
