Barack Hussein – this is the exact name given Obama by his parents. More precisely, that was the name of his father: Kenyan student who came to Hawaii for studying. Obama’s father was born in a small Kenyan village of Alego. He came to study in Hawaii because there, for foreigners, especially students from Africa, everything was easier: warmer and no racism.
Barack’s mother, Ann Dunham, is from a small town in Kansas. The parents met while studying at the University of Hawaii in Manole.
Obama’s parents divorced when Barack Obama Jr. was two years old. His father went to Harvard to get a Ph.D., and then returned home to Kenya.
When his father, Barack Hussein Obama Sr. returned to Kenya, his mother remarried. Again, it was the foreigner – Indonesian student Lolo Soetoro, whom she moved to Jakarta with.
In 1982, when Obama was 21, his own father died in a car accident. Obama lost his unknown father.
Normal children do not really like to be deprived of a father, and Barack Jr. had a dream. This dream he describes in his book “Dreams inherited from the father”.
