It is painful for me to watch Obama in the political arena fight a disadvantaged fight. Why is it a disadvantaged fight? First, he is considered to be half black and half white. Some black people consider him too white, while some white people consider him too black. How do you combat that? Some black feminists don't trust him because they see him as a previous bad relationship. He was raised without a father, but had a white mother. Some black men see him as having a soft appearance -- a school boy, a nerdy person.
He is in the ring with a white woman who was taught to fight with no holds barred. He can't fight her as he would another man. He was taught to respect women, especially white women. He was taught to fight fair and don't hit below the belt. He was also taught to attend church, be faithful and that the pastor is right. With this set of circumstances, how would you advise him?
