    I think the fact that he is light skinned helped him a lot. But he identifies as a Black man. Probably because his Mom saw him as Black.

    He's half white. The good half of course.

    Geeeeeeezus...

    How about we just call him a white African? Or...not worry about the whole race thing altogether.

    It would seem to me, this makes him more white than black.
    I have posed the question to my congressman on what the criteria is for being considered black. The congreesman's aid called me at work but she really didn't have an answer and claimed that she could tell by looking at me whether I was black or not. Apparently there is no device that measures skin pigmentation to determine race. It surely must be determined by some other method.

    When in an English class my teacher told me that your race is the same as the race indicated on your mother's birth certificate. This method makes more sense to me than the non answer that states, "I can tell by looking at you." When race classification began there were no DNA test to determine who the father was. The race of the father is understandably a non-factor.

    Barrack Obama is white unless someone wants to give me a lesson on how we determine what someone's race is. The mother's birth certificate seems like the only universal method to use since race classification is so dad gum important.

    If Obama was considered white, he'd never been accepted into columbia or Harvard Law

    What method did Harvard use to determine race? Is there a skin pigmentation measuring device? Can a person claim to be any race that is advantageous to them?

    Maybe the US government can start using the same method that Harvard uses.
