    I remember the Cons here during the GOP primaries who were insistent that Hermann Cain was "blacker" than Obama. Which he is, I guess, but who cares? Of course they're the same ones who would NEVER play the race card....
    If you didn't know his parentage, which is true of most black people you see, you would say he was black, right? Why make the distinction?

    Probably. Apparently it's important to this radio host to put people in boxes and talk about Obama's racial background....

    For those who don't know, his father was Black and his mother was White.

    On the way home from Starbucks I was listening to conservative talk show host Michael Berry; he said President Obama was half white, do you agree?

    OMG. I saw the thread title and assumed it was about his political philosophy, leadership, intellect, etc.

    In America anybody even partially black is considered black. However, if you're only partially anything other than black you're not considered white, Asian, Oriental, Polynesian, etc. except maybe Hispanic, only half or partically (fill-in-the-blank). Why this is, I don't know. I'm not sure if its a complement or racist; probably both depending on who you ask but it is what it is. As such, I say Obama is black. Like 99.999% of Black Americans he also has white ancestry but if he weren't POTUS nobody would mention it. He's the same race as Colin Powell, Eric Holder, Professor Henry Louis Gates, Louis Farrakhan, Malcom X, Tiger Woods, Halle Berry, Bryant and Greg Gumbel, Mayor Cory Booker, Ambassador Andrew Young, Condoleeza Rice, Mariah Carey, Prince, Beyonce, Susan Rice, Solodad O'Brien, Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, Will and Jada Smith, Alicia Keys....

    And that's being generous.

    I would describe him as Saul Alinsky given power.

    Why indeed? I'd say why ask the question? Bit of race baiting perhaps? I notice you didn't list Asian - he could be Asian for all I know or care.

    That's my experience.
