Former President Barack Obama worked hard for the eight years he was in the White House to distance himself from his self-professed mentor, communist Frank Marshall Davis.
In Obama’s book, “Dreams From My Father,” he refers to his mentor as only “Frank.” In an audiobook version that was made at a later date, “Frank” was taken out completely.
Obama should know, anything can be recovered on the internet. Obama was on his book tour in 1995 at the Cambridge Public Library when the video was taken. He not only explains who “Frank” is, he talks about how his mentor “schooled” him about how much white people are racist.
Obama explains that the portion in his book about “me having a conversation with a close friend of my maternal grandfather, a close friend of gramps, a black man from Kansas, named Frank.” This was the same time a well-known poet moved to Hawaii and lived there, named Frank Marshall Davis.
Obama continued, “And so I have a discussion with him about the kinds of frustrations I’m having, and he sorts of schools me that I should get used to these frustrations.”
In his highly controversial material Obama describes how his view of the world as a teenager was. Obama said, “Any distinction between good and bad whites held negligible meaning,” basically saying all whites are racist.
Anyone who felt that his view of the world was wrong, or said he was just being “paranoid,” was the equivalent to them calling Obama the n-word.
Frank Marshall Davis was a former member of the Communist Party USA, who managed to accumulate a 600-page dossier of his activities from the FBI as well as place him on the bureau’s “security index,” which means he could have been arrested at any time.
Marshall’s poetry included one lovely passage where he called Jesus the n-word, as well.
