An unauthorized biography of Barack Obama is nearing completion which promises to reveal quite a bit of hidden history about the former president that remained beyond public scrutiny for years.
The biographer argues that much of it would have ended Obama’s bid for the White House in 2008 had the information been discovered then.
Among the revelations is an unpublished manuscript from his college years in which Obama argues that America is a ‘racist society’ with a ‘racist ideology’.
Hmm, no surprise there.
Here’s more from Breitbart…
Garrow, who spent a total of eight years working on the biography, told the Jamie Weinstein Show that if any of those revelations he discovered surfaced during Obama’s presidential run in 2008, the former president’s candidacy would have been derailed.
The historian said Obama wrote hundreds of pages for a proposed book along with his friend Robert Fischer in the early 1990s when the two were still in law school, but the manuscript was never published.
“Racism against African Americans continues to exist throughout American society, an admittedly racist culture,” Obama and Fischer wrote, according to Garrow. “Precisely because America is a racist society we cannot realistically expect white America to make special concessions toward blacks over the long haul. The greatest testimony to the force of racist ideology in American culture is that it infects not only the mind of whites, but the minds of blacks as well.”
Garrow said Obama reportedly wrote 140 pages on race in that manuscript, giving an insight into his thoughts as he left law school and was about to enter public life in Illinois.
He claimed that if Republican researchers got a hold of Obama’s manuscript during the campaign, it would have impacted him negatively in the campaign.
Garrow said people would be “profoundly astonished” at how much of Obama’s life has not yet been made public but added that it was not necessarily in a negative context.
He also questioned the accuracy of parts of Obama’s memoir Dreams From My Father, which was published in 2004.
