Default First black president?

repoast?

how would Obama qualify as the first black president if he is 50% white? Seems he is equally white as he is black.

or am I just silly?

You're silly.

It's obvious that he's like a chameleon: He is whatever color is convenient at the time.

If he gets to be president, he will be the first black president, but, if someone is trying to prove a point that black people have not reached equality, they will call out the fact that he's not really black, but white.

I was just wondering what other people thought. I've been listening to NPR lately and the stuff I hear on it about Obama (rather, what the people that back him say) is sometimes comedy gold.

in good time he will be pissed on by the blacks should he be elected. every black i have talked with likes obama because he is a brotha and promised free money in everyones pocket. if obama would be elected he would be the first prez of bling. if he does not help the freeloading minorities that he is 1/2 part of they will turn on him. if he does help the freeloading minorities that he is 1/2 part of the honkies will call him prejudice and racist. it is a leadership designed of fail.

That's your problem. It's the equivalent of listening to rush limbough, but for lefties.

Yes and no, it can be very informative, as was the interview with Iran's president I listened to on the way into work. I try to listen / read what I can and try to make an honest effort to base my opinions.

In Obama's defence traditionally anyone who has a significant percentage of "non white" heritige has bee nconsidered "non white".

On this basis I think it's acceptable for him to call himself "black".

so, if a white child is raised by blacks, he can call himself black?
