He chose to take her to see a play by August Wilson.
An interesting choice.
Here's an interesting question whose answer reveals why:
OF THESE THREE MEN, WHO DOESN'T BELONG?
THE ANSWER IS CLARENCE THOMAS - AND IT'S NOT BECAUSE HE'S AN ORIGINALIST OR A JUDGE OR A CONSERVATIVE AND THE OTHER TWO JERKS ARE NOT.
IT'S BECAUSE THOMAS IS AN AUTHENTIC AFRICAN AMERICAN AND THE OTHER TWO ARE NOT; THEY ARE HALF-WHITE AND HALF-BLACK.
- OBAMA IS A KENYAN-AMERICAN WHO GREW UP OVERSEAS AND IN A BI-RACIAL/MULTI-RACIAL ENVIRONMENT WITH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN EXPERIENCE OR THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT.
- AUGUST WILSON WAS ALSO HALF-BLACK AND HALF-WHITE - THOUGH MUCH MORE CONNECTED TO AFRICAN-AMERICAN EXPERIENCE; HIS MOTHER WAS AFRICAN-AMERICAN - (NOT AFRICAN, LIKE OBAMA'S FATHER!); WIKI:
Wilson was born Frederick August Kittel, Jr. in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the fourth of six children to German immigrant baker, Frederick August Kittel, Sr. and Daisy Wilson, an African American cleaning woman, from North Carolina.
... August Kittel changed his name to August Wilson to honor his mother after his father's death in 1965.
THOMAS'S LIFE STORY IS MUCH MORE AMAZING AND COMPELLING AND MUCH MORE ILLUSTRATIVE OF THE ENORMOUS HURDLES BLACKS WERE FORCED TO OVERCOME IN THE USA - MUCH MUCH MORE SO THAN EITHER OBAMA'S OR WILSON'S.
COMPARED TO THOMAS, OBAMA AND WILSON ARE PHONIES.
AND THEY BELONG TOGETHER.
