Obama Ate Dog Meat, He Wrote in his Book (Audio)

Posted in People - Barack Obama by americatimes on April 19, 2012
In his 1995 book “Dreams from My Father”, Obama admitted that he ate dog meat fed to him by his Muslim stepfather Lolo Soetoro.

Source: Obama’s autobiography “Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance,” page 37.

Audio: Listen to Obama reading this passage from his book:

Read that page via Google Books:

“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy). Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”
