    So you are what you look like period.
    Obama is a black guy.

    That's my story and I am sticking to it.

    That's what he looks like to you but his mother was White and his father was Black.He's half and half.

    I'm conflicted about this. On the one hand there's a long history of racism trying to find a trap door to science with all the theories about race not being more than skin deep. Since race is really a superficial, meaningless categories with which we group each other, why can't someone identify with a particular group of people?

    On the other hand, people who have white privilege could easily exploit pretending to be something they are not, such as diversity programs. Can a white person truly be a person of color without experiencing the systemic racism America is fraught with? That's the question.

    You can modify your body but you can't change what you were born as. You can try to mimic the look with lots of drugs and surgery.

    Irrelevant, he looks like a black man to anyone. I am half and half as well.

    Seems like about a year ago everyone and his brother was saying race was a man-made construct with no objective reality, and no one should care about it or think it means anything ever.



    Something change? Did I miss a memo?

    Well... I do have a B.S. degree in physics.... and almost done with my Masters... I think I know something of science. I know enough science to know that a female brain and a male brain are anatomically different, and function differently.... and female body is anatomically different and functionally different.

    In fact.... there is less difference between people of the same race than there is between genders... if anything it's the less drastic change.

    So you are saying what this man feels is not in his brain?

    Appeal to authority fallacy.

    What this man feels is in his brain, sure, that doesn't prove that how he expresses what he feels in his brain is perfectly accurate.

    Differences in gender; male, female, and intersex, have basis in science. Differences in race; black, white, asian, these do not have such a basis in science.
