Despite my recently re-found radical feminism, I have spent the last 20 years writing/researching/teaching in African American studies.
So allusions often pop out at me:
Obama: These people are a part of me. And they are a part of America, this country that I love.
Hughes (Theme for English B): You are white---
yet a part of me, as I am a part of you.
Sometimes perhaps you don't want to be a part of me.
Nor do I often want to be a part of you.
But we are, that's true!
On the other hand...
Obama: Instead, they expressed a profoundly distorted view of this country - a view that sees white racism as endemic...
Uh, that's a distorted view?
That said, it's a good speech overall.
