WND's Mercer: Blacks Don't Have Appealing Values
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In her Jan. 23 WorldNetDaily column, Ilana Mercer argues that the qualities that make Barack Obama so appealing have nothing to do with the black part of his heritage:

Ironically, Barack the boy was raised by his white maternal grandparents; his Kenyan father abandoned him.

The qualities Americans appeared to find universally appealing in the ambitious, affable Obama – his confidence and calm, and his commitment to community and kin, education and excellence – these came from Kansas, not Kenya.

Mercer also insists that "the election of Barack Obama is proof positive of how fair-minded Americans are, not how far honky has come," adding, "For the first time in a long time, the black community has put forward a candidate of caliber, a candidate the American people were only too willing to consider for the highest office in the land."
