1. OBAMA CONCLUDES "THAT'S JUST HOW WHITE FOLKS WILL DO YOU"
After listing a few examples of racism directed at him by whites, Obama concludes:
"That's just how white folks will do you. It wasn't merely the cruelty involved; I was learning that black people could be mean and then some.It was a particular brand of arrogance, an obtuseness in otherwise sane people that brought forth our bitter laughter. It was as if whites didn't know that they were being cruel in the first place. Or at least thought you deserving of their scorn." pg 80
2. OBAMA SAYS WHITE PEOPLE ARE AFRAID AND HAVE DEMONS
Barack Obama, referring to his reading of the book "Heart of Darkness:"
"...the book teaches me things," I said, "About white people, I mean. See, the book's not really about Africa. Or black people. It's about the man who wrote it. The European. The American. A particular way of looking at the world. If you can keep your distance its all there, in what's said and what's left unsaid."
"So I read the book to help me understand what makes white people so afraid. Their demons. The way ideas get twisted around. It helps me understand how people learn to hate." (emphasis added). Pg 103
