In 2000 Gore lost, and donations from working-class blacks were less than negligible. God thankfully didn't answer their prayers. But with the Obamas, it is different. The two things that endear them to blacks is Michelle Obama's black face and her impudent behavior – which many in the black community view as sticking it in the face of whites. If it were just a half-white Kenyan with Communist entrails, support for him would be at best tepid in the black community. It is worth noting that the questions surrounding his blackness are well-documented, and it wasn't a white essayist writing for a conservative newspaper (if such a thing exists); rather, it was a black essayist writing for the liberal Los Angeles Times who identified Obama as the "magic Negro."
I submit that it is the blackness of Michelle Obama that gives credibility to the "blackness" of Obama. This is one of the dirty little secrets white people remain ignorant of, because to accept what I am saying as fact would require them to also acknowledge the depth of contempt many blacks harbor toward them. And it is that contempt the Obamas manipulate to control what is said of them and the extent of media criticism they receive.
Michelle Obama is a world-class conductor of the race-mongers orchestra. And she conducts the symphony with the adroitness that even the most skilled race-monger can take lessons from. In 2000, Al Gore may have gotten little more than prayers and fried chicken, but in 2011-12, Obama – thanks to his wife has figured out how to get juice from that fruit.

The fundraiser email may have seemed like nothing more than an innocuous request, but what matters is whom it was sent to and the social perspective of same. For those who doubt my opinion, I encourage you to read some of the comments made on black blogs and news sites in reference to Michael Jordan announcing his engagement to his Cuban born fiancée. The vitriol communicated between readers on the referenced sites goes beyond the pale.
Over-the-top expensive vacations, fashions, and dinners – in the view of many blacks – is seen as showing whiteys what it's all about. It is viewed with applause and admiration because it is viewed through a racial paradigm. Do the math – $3 from even 75 percent of blacks adds up to a hefty amount of money. And since blacks, as Al Gore found out, are not inclined to give, $3 is an amount that those they're reaching out to can not only afford, but also gladly give.
Identifying it as "needful for voter registration" and "something to get people fired up about" is nothing more than code speak for "it's going to benefit the black man." You can call me wrong, but I bet I'm right.
