Obama as an NPR commenter in 1994

Now this is interesting! Obama, when he was a civil rights lawyer, did an NPR commenter piece lambasting the racism of Murray's The Bell Curve, and encouraged development by blacks within black communities.

Listen to it here.

Who'd have thought in 1994 that Obama would turn out to be more famous than any of the variety of folks that aired their piece on "All Things Considered?" Not bad for a Hawaiian kid with a weird name that wanted to be an artist on Spider-Man and Conan the Barbarian.

Thank God he chose to go into politics. Imagine if he had become an artists for Marvel. I'm already mad at them for One More Day. Imagine having to be mad at Obama for being the artists on it. he seems like too nice a guy to have that fate thrust upon him.
