    The controversy is about a photo of Obama in 1973 posing with his mother, grandfather and sister Maya at the Honolulu airport believed arriving from Indonesia. The photo in question has been on Obama's facebook page but people observing the photo took notice of his mothers right hand touching Obama's ribcage. If you look at the hand, it's huge and black and doesn't align to her arm. The speculation swirling it is that she was photo shopped in the picture taking the place of who many say is the real father, Frank Marshall Davis, He was the good friend of Obama's grandfather and communist mentor of Barack Obama and is being speculated as the actual person that was originally standing next to Barack at the airport instead of the mother . Robert Nikolakakis, a professional graphic artist who examined the 1973 photo believes the image of Obama’s mother, Ann Dunham, was airbrushed into the scene to cover up an African-American man who was standing next to Obama. Look at the picture and tell us what you see.

    Link to Obama's facebook page----Obama's grandfather's hand in the picture (the man standing) is lighter than hers.

    It's funny that all the birthers claim that's the hand of a black person, since it isn't very clear.

    Somehow they know what's going on behind the people in the photo. :thup:

    I can just imagine all those freaks with their magnifying glasses, sweat dripping from their brow, bent on finding some incriminating detail. Poor idiots. Kinda sad really.

    Poor Arpaio and Trump are betting their careers on it. And, look at the huge money that has been poured into this desperate search for something that does not exist.

    Nice family photo though. Follow the link back to the other photos. We're very lucky to have this man in the WH.

    Hmmm Yes, it looks like a different photo at that point and her forearm is greyish in color as if it was messed with digitally. Also the shadow on the floor doesn't seem real when no other shadow is cast on the other subjects in photo.

    Well we know he tells alot of "stories" so........there ya go.

    More likely it is photoshopped.
