Obama was a tolerant roommate. Siddiqi’s mother, who had never been around a black man, came to visit, and she was rude; Obama was nothing but polite. Siddiqi himself could be intemperate — he called Obama an Uncle Tom, but Obama “was really patient. I’m surprised he suffered me.”
Finally, their relationship started to fray. “I was partying all the time. I was disrupting his studies,” Siddiqi said. Obama moved out.
