There is a young black man who is attempting to learn for sure who his father is, but the man he has long believed to be his father continues to ignore him. He is attempting to obtain the man's DNA so he can find out for sure. He has gone so far as to ask the President of the United States, Barack Obama, for help because the father is a politician President Obama is acquainted with. The father claims to favor racial equality on the political level, but apparently not at the personal level.
The alleged father wouldn't be the first white 20th Century
politician to have fathered a black child. Former Sen. Strom
Thurmond fathered a black child, but Thurmond accepted the
responsibility of being a father. Thurmond kept in touch with
his daughter and financed her college education. Although
Thurmond had fought racial integration at the political level, he
had no trouble having a personal relationship with a black daughter.
And now for what commentator Paul Harvey would have called the "Rest
of the Story". The young man's name is Danney Lee
Williams-Clinton and the man he believes to be his father is Bill
Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States.
