Black Iraqis make Obama a model

January 25, 2009

“Now we, the dark-skinned people, feel even closer to the American people now because Obama is one of us,” says the leader of the Movement of Free Iraqis, the Basra-based organization of Iraqis of African descent, whose ancestors were brought to Iraq as slaves 2,500 years ago. He says there are more than 2 million Black Iraqis. They are running a slate of candidates in the Jan. 31 election.
