    Except he was raised 100% white.

    It would seem to me, this makes him more white than black.

    Maybe the US government can start using the same method that Harvard uses.
    when You apply to Harvard Law or any other major law school (which I did fairly successfully) they ask your race

    there is a case of a famous black professor who was accepted at harvard I believe and not yale, he called Yale and when he told them he was black, they then sent him an acceptance letter (he still went to the other school and I might have the two law schools reversed)

    But how do you know the correct answer? Can't you just use the most advantageous answer?

    Can a white guy call himself black under these same circumstances?

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    What's to stop someone from choosing the most advantageous answer?
