Quoted text from Barack Obama's book

From Audacity of Hope: "I will stand with the Muslims should the political
winds shift in an ugly direction."

From Dreams of My Father: "I never emulate white men and brown men whose
fates didn't speak to my own. It was into my father's image, the black man,
son of Africa, that I'd packed all the attributes I sought in myself, the
attributes of Martin and Malcolm, Dubois and Mandela."

From Dreams of My Father: "I ceased to advertise my mother's race at the
age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating
myself to whites."

From Dreams of My Father: "I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother's race."

From Dreams of My Father: "There was something about him that made me wary,
a little too sure of himself, maybe. And white."

From Dreams of My Father: "It remained necessary to prove which side you
were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name
names."


I wouldn't recommend purchasing his books, but checking them out from the
public library and verifying the quotes (you can also google the text to verify) .| This is a dangerous individual
who has not been truthful, evidently with very much he has uttered in
public.

After further research. I have determined that these quotes are totally taken out of context.
