Schneider: A nod to the past, as the future takes the stage

    So now BO grew up in the segregated south. I thought he lived a short while in Kansas and then in Hawaii. Someone know what he's talking about?

    Wasn't he raised for awhile in Indonesia, in that muslim school where he said he didn't practice Islam. He is a mix like how Rev.Lowery explained it, a little white, black, brown,yellow. Maybe he is a universal president. A president of all races, all colors, and all religion. Wow, he can go to Iran and get saluted.
