Grandmother of Barack Obama diesEdit

RE: Editing Comments:Grandmother of Barack Obama dies at 86 (comment) From Wikinews, the free news source you can write!

"It is with great sadness that we announce that our grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, has died peacefully after a battle with cancer," Obama said in a joint statement with his half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng."

We must be strong, because You did a great job, PRESIDENT OBAMA !



Everyone congratulates You to be democratically elected as Your grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, would like to and see that something happen in America.

In March 1983, one of humanity's most famous spokesmen, Pope John Paul II, came to our country - 'Haîti' - and loudly proclaimed what each and every one of us had been whispering:

"Something must change here !"

Today, more than ever, a lot of people of The United States of America stand up, longing for something and working to make something happen.

"Go thou America ahead and show us thy true countenance in a positive light.' Today more than ever, it is up to everyone to play his or her part in order to let thee regain thy mark of excellence !"

With this letter, I am communicating with You, SIR, and with the whole people of The United States of America.

You offer this country what it takes to be a 'Wonderfull Land.' Yes, let us say 'with a great people living and working together.'

Go thou, America, go ahead, following in the footsteps of one of thy sons who is now becoming one of thy statesmen.

With this in mind, to whom else could I entrust this letter sent to his Holiness Pope John Paul II when he set foot on Haitian soil for the first time, as well as its acknowledgment by the Vatican?

That letter to Pope John Paul II is intended to draw attention to the problem posed by anti-Black discrimination and its negative repercussions on the advancement of scientific progress in the West, and more precisely in the realm of Optics.

In the Western world, according to Newton's widely accepted theory, white is considered to be the synthesis of all colors. Actually, the opposite is true. White constitutes the analysis or 'visible' decoding of light or color, whereas black is its synthesis or 'invisible' composition.

In other words, darkness or blackness and, we might add, "Black Holes'" - a scientific misnomer designating invisible stars or 'Black Suns' - are a source of energy and light. Scientifically, Industrially and Economically speaking, what an asset !

That basic raw material of light energy culminates, in its most radiant form, in the neutralization of all the colors of the spectrum in the form of usually called "white light."

Therefore "absolute blackness", the absorption of all the colors, is a divisible component of light. Needless to say, Newton's theory gives only a partial interpretation of the notion of light, by excluding black. Our contribution aims at demonstrating that the black color is not only an integral part of the color process, but its true synthesis. Light is therefore shown to be a divisible whole comprising an intensity or color scale in which black is the invisible or 'absorbed' form of the energy in question.

Allow me, SIR, in order to support my statement concerning Black Holes and radiation, to pose a question asked by Hubert Reeves, Doctor of nuclear astrophysics and Scientific Consultant to NASA:

"What would have become of the Sun, if it were plunged into a high temperature radiance like the one that existed at the beginning of the Universe? [our translation]"

"Instead of emitting light, it would absorb it and, in the end, it would be completely reabsorbed into the cosmic fluid."

The cosmic fluid is what, due to an "optical mistake", is called "darkness" or the "blackness of Space". We are talking about the electromagnetic flux, that immeasurable ocean in which the planets and stars are bathed, like the sea which links all the continents together. Darkness is thus "The Sea of Space."

"What would have happened if, instead of an ordinary star like the "White Sun", a Black Hole or "Black Sun" were injected into that primordial radiation?"

"According to Einsteinian Physics, a Black Hole is a place where gravity is so formidably intense that nothing can escape it, not even visible light. Such a hole should suck in and absorb radiation and increase its own mass: E=MC2, always."

"But after Einstein came Bohr, Heisenberg, and Quantum Physic. From then on, nothing was the same as before."

"The Einsteinian version of the Black Hole is equivalent to a statement that the matter inside the Black Hole is definitely there to stay, in that volume of space. Let us quote Hubert Reeves: "Such an absolute statement is thus contrary to the "Quantum spirit", affirming that nothing is definitely localized in one place. There is always a probability of escape. If the enclosing wall is too high, a tunnel will be dug; if the prisoners are patient, they will escape. One has only to wait." [our translation]

"According to that principle, Black Holes "evaporate". Matter constantly escapes as radiation. Black Holes "shine!" Their surfaces behave like those of any body heated to a certain temperature and that radiation endlessly feeds that marvelous "Cosmic Fluid" which, wrongly and in bad faith, people keep calling "Darkness."

Nigra sum "sed" formosa!

Yes, but should we not say instead, I am black "and" comely?

Darkness, which is both source and vehicle of light, does not have to defend itself for being the beautiful and infinitely discreet raw material of the Universe. Darkness is the "Mother of the Universe."

Also, beautiful and discreet art thou, Haiti. Discreet, yes, but never outshone! Just like the Black Virgin who inspires and sheds her love on thee from the hilltop and even beyond Cité Soleil (Sun City).

Our purpose was to offer a more constructive approach aiming at correcting the abusive traditional, so-called scientific, theories of Optics.

It’s like to say that in the exceptional circumstances in which we live today - in the point of view of FINANCE and ENERGY - no exploration in the mid or long term, by the american expertise , of an additional source of energy, at the same time safe and economically profitable, should not be ruled out.

That is why, we wrote to that authentic witness to the signs of this age, His Holiness Pope John Paul II, the prophet of the new era.

Congratulations to You, Sir, and congratulations to the PEOPLE of The United States Of America - for having made it possible for this day of November to come - to mark the beginning of a "New Era of Hope !"

It's a bit sad that it takes the death of someone close to one of the candidates for them to behave in a civil manner towards eachother. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:09, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Barack's GrandmotherEdit

This story is sad and my prayers go out to him. Thank God that he is not showing it while still in the Presidental race. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:37, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

President- elect Obama, you are truely an inspiration to all of us. You are the bridge to peace and sovereignty. Thank you for the extraordinary service that lies ahead of you and may all the luck and happiness follow your path. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:47, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

The Interview?Edit

Several months passed between Obama's nomination and his being voted in as President. I know that his maternal grandmother, Madelyn Dunham was suffering from cancer during those months, dying just 2 days before Obama's election.

What seem curious to me is as follows. If I had cancer or not, unless I was at deaths door and my grandson, whom I raised, was nominated not just for president, but for the first black president, I would welcome any interviews concerning my thoughts and or feeling about his nomination. I would be nearly bursting with pride.

Over the past 6+ years, I have asked several people if they had heard any interviews with Madelyn Dunham, Obama's grandmother from the time of his nomination until she died, several months later. Everyone who I asked said no. They had never heard her interviewed.

News people were in my brothers hospital room 3 days before his cancer death. I have heard news people interviewing the parents and or family of children just before or just after the child's death. When something news worthy happens, news people are always minutes away, with microphone in hand.

If Madelyn Dunham was interviewed after the nomination of her grandson, I would like to read it, or hear it. If she wasn't interviewed, why not? Just Curious. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 2601:d:b80:2ce:156:8c27:b98b:9610 (talkcontribs) 05:12, 10 April 2015
