    clearly, centuries of slavery and then segregation has had an effect on the abilities of African-Americans..but has NOT effected their brethren born in Africa.

    could 500 years of slavery and segregation effect the genes of these people? doubt it. but it sure can effect their traditions, upbringing, etc etc.
    It didn't effect me all that adversely.

    Using slavery is a lame ass excuse.

    who are you referring to? Obama was Magna at Harvard, not summa. Obama could have been as low as 85 in a class of 550

    In the book The End of Blackness published by author Debra Dickerson, she warned against drawing favorable cultural implications from upwardly mobile black immigrants who are not the sons and daughters of American slavery and racial segregation. She used the political rise of President Barack Obama, who is the son of a Kenyan immigrant, a result of "Lumping us all together,"[152] Dickerson claimed it, "erases the significance of slavery and continuing racism while giving the appearance of progress." On the liberal website Salon Dickerson wrote, "African-American", in our political and social vocabulary, means those descended from West African slaves".

    African American - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    looks like I'm not alone in my view.
    It's a view, but it's not fact, not evidence. It's just others who share your viewpoint. When you make a statement that "NO African Americans are 100% black" I don't even know what that means... yet saying 100% of anything leaves you open to an obvious challenge since there are always exceptions.

    Second, you totally made that BS up and then ran to Wiki to find anything that would support it. And lastly... "On the liberal website Salon ..." That's your source? Wiki that references Salon. Ugh...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Anyone who doubts Obama's intelligence is just being silly, jealous, or pathetically partisan.

    And btw, Bush got into Yale as a legacy.....unlike Obama who had to earn & work his way in to Harvard.

    Bush got into Yale because

    1) he was a graduate of Andover and Andover sent most of its graduates to the Ivies, especially Yale

    2) He was a legacy, the son of a man who was top in his class, a war hero and the captain of the baseball team.

    Obama got into harvard law because he was black.

    Good thing for Libbos that plausible deniablity exists.
