You are incorrect again. Obama's father comes from east Africa - Kenya to be exact. I read that his family belong to the Lao tribe.
Hillary's campaign was wrong to send around photos of him in Somalian dress. Somalia is a different east African country. He visited Somalia, but no one in his family is Somalian.
Are you familiar with the supermodel Iman?? She is from supermodel and happens to married to David Bowie.
Most of the worlds black models come from Somalia and they look very different than kenyans.
Do you consider the model Iman to be some radical Muslim??? No, because she is not.
The only Arab Africans are Eritrean's. They are very beautiful people as well. They have very European features. They share a history with ancient Greece and the roman empire.
North Africa is countries like Tunisia.
The point is wearing Somalian dress, doesn't make you Muslim.. It only makes him someone who was visiting a country and learning about different cultures.
My experience living in Europe has given me opportunity to meet many people from all over the world.
I tell you this also.. Somalians and Kenyans don't like each other at all,they have a rivalry going on.
I am happy Mr. Obama won - I like the guy for who he is, not his father's country.
