Obama served in the Illinois state senate with author Hendon. Asides in the book's narrative include the time the two nearly came to blows - a side of the aggressor Obama the public has yet to see.
Being a white guy who grew up in an all-white town, I find the African-American Hendon's account of being stopped by Illinois law enforcement who noted two black men with one white woman (the wife of one) in a car in the year 2008 a sobering reminder of just how remarkable Obama's success really is. Hence the title, BLACK ENOUGH/WHITE ENOUGH, as it asks if Barack Obama is black enough to stand up for all people and white enough to still get elected.
