Smear-mail quotes alleged passages from Obama’s books

A series of smear-mails are now circulating that attempt to make readers believe that Barack Obama is a secret Muslim and anti-American. This one includes alleged quotes from both of Obama’s books – Dreams from My Father and The Audacity of Hope.

The Smear:

From Dreams of My Father: ‘I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of 12 or 13, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites.’

From Dreams of My Father :
‘I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mother’s race.’
