have to be such a whiner?

I liked this take down of Obama’s emotion filled memoir:

Barack Obama complains throughout his book Dreams From My Father
about the slights, insults, and injustices he suffered. Not that there
is anything dramatic. There were those two white friends who came to an
all-black party and kept “smiling a lot” because they were
uncomfortable. When they told him after “I can see how it must be tough
for you and at sometimes being the only black guys and all.” This
offends Obama, who writes, “A part of me wanted to punch him
right there.” Obama complains about “white man’s rules,” and how unjust
things are, but can’t really offer any difficulty or act of outright
bigotry that happened to him. “People were satisfied so long as you
were courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves.” Alas, the harsh
light of oppression.
