    wonder that she had never been proud of America in her adult life?  There are also several relatively disturbing quotes I've read from Senator Obama's first book, Dreams from My Father

    "...certain whites could be excluded from the general category of our distrust"

      "There were enough of us on campus to constitute a tribe, and when it came to hanging out many of us chose to function like a tribe, staying close together, traveling in packs," he wrote. "It remained necessary to prove which side you were on, to show your loyalty to the black masses, to strike out and name names."

      He added: "To avoid being mistaken for a sellout, I chose my friends carefully. The more politically active black students. The foreign students. The Chicanos. The Marxist professors and structural feminists."

      "I had grown accustomed, everywhere, to suspicions between the races."

      "There was something about him that made me wary," [he wrote regarding a potential employer] "A little too sure of himself, maybe. And white."
