Media barons ready to paint Obama blacker

What was the hottest news story this Father’s Day? It was Obama’s visit to a new church--after his fallout with preacher Michael Pfleger--and his comments on black fathers acting irresponsibly.
It is hard to miss the sinister angle of media exposure Obama received this father’s day. Is it not a strategy to project Obama as a 100% Afro-American man? To press upon the masses that Obama is a black man who goes to black churches and advises black men, and in making this point suggest that Obama’s scope is really narrow, that he cannot be trusted to become the leader of the whole nation, that his blackness precludes him from associating with other segments of the society.
Do you see it?
