Obama was Chairman of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC) from 1995 to the end of 2001, and distributed more than $110 Million dollars to improve Chicago Public Schools. Listen to what Obama said about the person that submitted the CAC grant proposal, and also sat as an ex officio member of the CAC board, Bill Ayers
A large portion of the more than $110 Million went to ethnic and social programs like these:
$632,662 to Small Schools Workshop, started by Mike Klonsky and William Ayers, created to push their school reform agenda.
$413,000 to the South Shore African Village Collaborative for their "Celebrate African-American Holiday of Juneteenth" (celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation). Some African-Americans celebrate Juneteenth instead of the Fourth of July.
and many more...
Turned down to receive a grant:
The Chicago Algebra Project: goal to increase student achievement
The District 5 Math Initiative: goal to aid Hispanic students in the process of learning English, to further learn math and science.
and many more programs designed to advance student fundamentals.
Lately, we have seen Obama describe him as "one of the thousands of people I know", and then we are told that Obama didn't know who Ayers was. We have to believe that while going to Columbia College, and Harvard, he didn't hear about Ayers?

Then follow the dots from Alinsky, where Obama learned his Community Organization skills, to Acorn who Obama taught how to exploit these strong arm tactics, and started the downward spiral of our current economic crisis, and then Ayers, who Obama helped fund pet projects that will turn our schools into indoctrination centers like Hugo Chavez's (Ayers daughter consults to Hugo Chavez)
