An African-American Muslim suit

Family Add comments

Maggie Williams was rummaging through Patti Solis Doyle’s desk, cleaning out the junk when she came across a photo of Barack Obama in Africa. She showed it to Icky and Mark, and they brought it to me.

A photo of Barack isn’t much news but in this particular photo he was touring Africa and got all dressed up in traditional African clothes with some kind of towel wrapped around his head. He looked positively black and Muslim at the same time. It was priceless photography. A true picture that tells a thousand words. Maybe more.

ObamaHmmmm. What to do? What to do?

Should I listen to Icky and Bill and make sure the photo gets leaked to the press so they can raise a stir about Obama’s Muslim roots and again publish the fact that he’s actually African-American whose middle name is Hussein and his father belonged to the same religion that attacked America on September 11?

Or, should I listen to Maggie and Mark, and ignore it altogether? After all, I’ve visited many countries and worn their traditional clothing, too.

For example, my relatives came from Europe so I wear pantsuits which were donated to me from designers and clothiers in France and Italy. I’m sure I have some relatives from there.

The point is, American voters need to know something about the roots of their presidential candidates, where they’re from, what kinds of clothing they wear when they’re away on vacation. That kind of thing.

On the other hand, publishing a photo of Barack Obama all gussied up in proper Muslim attire could be seen as baiting or inflammatory or negative campaigning.

I don’t know and there’s only one real way to find out.
