Bill Ayers to Anne Leary as reported 6 October 2009: “I wrote Dreams From My Father. I said,
oh, so you admit it. He said–Michelle asked me to“... So the question remains: is Barack Obama
a fraud? Is his myth-making creation and only major accomplishment, a product of Bill Ayers’
imagination (or his own)? Is our President Barack Obama’s biography written by an unrepentant
domestic terrorist? As for our President, the verdict is still out. But Barack Obama called Bill
Ayers friend and colleague for years. That in itself makes a damning statement.




I, Doug Turner, have read Dreams from My Father and what I have chosen to share with you
will require more than one article on this site. This, the first article, will provide an introduction to
what is in his book, a basic chronology of life events, and brief quotes about suspicions that the
book was written by William Ayers, not Obama. A future article will cite numerous quotes,
including page number, from his book. Some of these quotes contain very raw language and I
will try to reveal the meaning without having to spell out the vulgar words. Other quotes paint a
picture of a very racist Obama who places whites in a category of people who hate blacks.




Part 1




Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance is a memoir alleged to have been
written by President of the United States Barack Obama. It was first published in 1995 after
Obama was elected the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, but before
his political career began. The book was re-released in 2004 following Obama's keynote
address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention (DNC); the 2004 edition includes a new
introduction (by Obama?), then a Senator-elect, as well as his DNC keynote
address.                                                 




The alleged autobiographical narrative tells the story of the life of Obama up to his entry in
Harvard Law School. He was born Aug. 4, 1961 (in Honolulu, Hawaii?), to Barack Obama, Sr. of
Kenya, and Ann Dunham of Wichita, Kansas, both students at that time at the East-West Center
of the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Obama's parents separated when he was two years old
and divorced in 1964. Obama formed an image of his absent father from stories told by his
mother and her parents. He saw his father only one more time, in 1971, when Obama Sr. came
to Hawaii for a month's visit. The elder Obama died in a car accident in 1982.

After her divorce, Ann Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an East-West Center student from
Indonesia. The family moved to Jakarta. When Obama was ten, he returned to Hawaii under the
care of his grandparents (and later his mother) for the better educational opportunities available
there. He was enrolled in the fifth grade at Punahou School, a private college-preparatory
school. Obama was one of three Black students among the majority Asian-American population
at that school, and he first became conscious of racism and what it means to be an
African-American.




Obama attended Punahou School from the 5th grade until his graduation in 1979. Obama
writes: "For my grandparents, my admission into Punahou Academy heralded the start of
something grand, an elevation in the family status that they took great pains to let everyone
know." There he also met Ray (Keith Kakugawa), who introduced him to the African American
community.




Upon finishing high school, Obama moved to Los Angeles, where he enrolled at Occidental
College, where he describes living a "party" lifestyle of drug and alcohol use. After two years at
Occidental, he transferred to Columbia College at Columbia University, in Manhattan, New York
City, where he majored in political science. Upon graduation, he worked for a year in business.
He then moved to Chicago, working for a non-profit doing community organizing in the Altgeld
Gardens housing project on the city's South Side. Obama recounts the difficulty of the
experience, as his program faced resistance from entrenched community leaders and apathy on
the part of the established bureaucracy. It was during his time spent here that Obama joined
Chicagoan Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ.




Before attending Harvard Law School, Obama decided to visit relatives in Kenya. He uses part
of his experience there as the setting for the book's final, emotional scene. As well as relating
the story of Obama's life, the book includes a good deal of reflection on his own personal
experiences with race and race relations in the United States.




Stay tuned for Doug Turner's Part 2 article on this subject.
