Face-to-Face with Young Marxist Obama: Remembering My Days as an
Anti-Apartheid Student Activist
By John Drew, Posted by Newssleuth
Flipping through some old photos, I found this picture of me graduating from Occidental College on June 9, 1979. I’m wearing a red arm band. My parents were probably angry at me for doing this because it spoiled the graduation photo. Nevertheless, this photo has now come in handy as significant evidence that I was doing my part to protest Occidental College’s investments in South Africa. Moreover, it is part of the trail of documents that allows me to make the case that I was, indeed, a radical student who founded the anti-apartheid group which young President Obama spoke for a year and a half later on the Occidental College campus.<http://www.discover thenetworks. org/individualPr ofile.asp? indid=1511>
The fellow handing me my diploma was Occidental College president Richard C.
Gilman. I’m sure he didn’t care for me and I believed he was an evil guy.
