I keep seeing stories about Obama family members (half-brothers from Kenya I believe) and how he doesn't help them financially or otherwise. There's a story here from (Danger Will Robinson, Danger!) FoxNews.com http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/08/1...a-brother/ by Dinesh D'Souza that recounts how Obama's half brother, George, needed $1000 for medical bills and called Dinesh, who he only knew from working on his film, for the money.

What do you make of this? Why doesn't Obama help out his half-family? Even only if cynically, to avoid looking like an uncaring family member or hypocrite. Obama is financially very well off, worth somewhere around $10 million at this point. He stands to earn about $50 million in the next 20 years as a former President. He could help all these people and not even feel it financially. Why doesn't he?
Obama catches enough racist shit just for sharing a fraction of DNA with these people, could you imagine what people would say if a penny that he had been in the same room as made it into Kenya? Really? I'm not sure you thought this through very well.

I'm not a supporter of Obama, and he is a neo-liberal douche just like Bush before him and Romney, and the rest... but the vast majority of the mainstream political criticism against him has more to do with his genetics than his politics. I think that it is important to remember that when they say "Obama is a Socialist," what they really mean is that "Obama isn't white."
