The creator of the “Boondocks” comic strip Aaron McGruder, is really stepping out there saying, President Obama is not black. Infact on the night before President Barack Obama’s inauguration, McGruder says he was, “cautiously pessimistic” about the future: “I don’t think you’re going to see any dramatic change from Barack Obama. I’m hoping he proves me completely wrong.” Perhaps more shocking, however, was McGruder’s assertion that Obama is not black because he is not a descendant of a slave.”The person who is one of us in the White House is Michelle Obama and her momma,” McGruder said.
So McGruder sent a letter to the E&P staff stating his words were miscontrued:
“The claim that I asserted our new President was not Black is categorically false.I have seen an endless stream of Black pundits on TV pontificating about the significance of President Obama’s election – many of them making reference to the 3/5th’s clause in the constitution regarding slaves. The point I was making is that this is not an accurate comparison.
“Barack is the son of an immigrant, not the descendant of slaves. It’s like comparing a half-Japanese man to the oppressed Chinese who built the American railroads. Yes, they are both Asian, but it is not an honest or accurate comparison. We all share the common experiences of being Black in America today – we do not all share a common history. A history that in part makes us who we are – and in some cases (as with the psychological damage that still lingers from slavery) holds us back.
