It isn't society that paints them as black, its themselves.....

Most mixed white/black people claim their black side.....It's more convenient in America today to be black....

That goes for the president as well....He wouldn't have won the presidency as a white man...

Key and Peele, the hosts of a new sketch comedy show, and who are both of mixed black/white heratige openly admit to this and poke fun at the fact in their new television show on a regular basis....

Here they are talking about 'adjusting their blackness' to intimidate white people....







As with most comedy, there is a sad truth behind the humor....Being black in America has become a convenience on so many levels....

Those dudes are hysterical! Gotta love it!

I lmao'd on the skit where it was supposed to be Obama taking his daughter out to learn to drive and was pulled over by the cops....the Officer said "I'm sorry Mr. President" and "Obama" said "no-no...treat me like anyone else, she needs to learn" and then he was slammed on the hood of the car and handcuffed....I freaking broke out laughing!

But as you said...behind the humor is a sad-sad truth...and it needs to go away....

My husband of Welsh, Irish and English ancestry after spending time in the sun will be just as brown, or browner than a good number of people who refer to themselves as "Black". When young had black hair and still very dark eyes. His regualr skin tone is also darker than mine and I am of Hispanic, Native American and Irish ancestry and I was born with blond hair. My husband laughs and says he must be descended from the Black Irish.

Race is most definately a social construct. We are all human, one race. We are many and varied and that is what makes us so interesting.

I personally did not and do not care if Obama is Black, White or Green, it is what the man has said and done that I have a problem with, to say the least.

As for his "Color", if you want to be more exact, it seems to me he is Coco Brown but by a true definition he is not "White" and he is not "Black" so if it will make some happy, I am all for labeling all mixed raced people anyway you like, for example in Obama's case, we can call him an Afro-Caucasian since his father was Black African and his Mother a White American. Happy?

Now, let's get this man out of the White House and by some way and means turn this county back on a path away from this Fascist-Socialism.

to me, it all boils down to American being against multiculturalism and all for 1 percent rule and black vs white like left vs right dem vs rep, all dichotomies.



"Here we go...America has yet to see a black President...the only thing about obama being black is his Dad getting his Mom pregnant...Than he left and so did she..leaving him to be raised by his white grandparents in Hawaii..LOL

He's actually only 1/4 black. His dad is 1/2 middle eastern (arab) and 1/2 black. His mother is 100% white. Which puts him at 1/4 black, 1/4 middle eastern, and 1/2 white. He's actually more white than anything else.

But he will always be considered black. Black genes are dominant, and white genes are recessive. That's why whenever you have the two races (white+black) mixing and producing offspring, the children will always be black, and there will never be any trace of white heritage from that moment on in any descendents. The black genes so to speak wipe out the white genes, because white genes are recessive and black are dominant.

Read his bio "Dreams from my Father" and you will discover that Obama still suffers from the same ID crisis that he wrote about in his book. Based on his words, relationships, affiliations etc. it is rather safe to say that he has fully embraced his Black heritage while distancing himself from his White heritage as far as possible. It is all apparent based on his writings, lectures and relationships.

Obama referred to his Grandmother as a "typical white person" in his book. Also in his own words "I ceased to advertise my mother’s race at the age of twelve or thirteen, when I began to suspect that by doing so I was ingratiating myself to whites." Dreams

Once again. "...never emulate white men and brown men whose fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my father’s image, the black man, son of Africa, that I’d packed all the attributes I sought in myself..." "Dreams..."

He said that about the man that abandoned him when he was 1 year old!! and yet called the grandparents that raised and nutured him "white folk". As a youngster Obama's mom passed him around like a cheap suit and I would venture to guess that he has harbored ill will deep in his mind ever since.

Anyway,,, It's all there in his book and in his past for those who care to read it and look deeper into it. Obama will never embrace his White side. Ever. Because it would not pay off politically!!!

Best Answer to this All Do to Appearance!!

Now Fact is During World War 2 There were Soldiers that were Mulatto Passing as White Looking ,
Blond Hair Blue Eyes Fair Skin and some did get Away Avoiding that Race Card. But some were Found out and were sent to another Field of Occupation mostly the Lesser MOS So Much fighting for your Country
Then there were was that Unit the Tuskegee Airman Escort that never lost a Bomber that is in the History Books , and that Black Solder ( a Cook ) that Put his Hand on the Anti Aircraft Gun at Pearl Harbor bring Down Japanese Planes Well he Should go the Congressional Metal Of Honor Right ?


Because of that Race Card


A 1993 study commissioned by the Army investigated racial discrimination in the awarding of medals.[4] At the time, no Medals of Honor had been awarded to black soldiers who served in World War II. After an exhaustive review of files, the study recommended that several black Distinguished Service Cross recipients be upgraded to the Medal of Honor. On January 13, 1997, President Bill Clinton awarded the Medal to seven African American World War II veterans; of these, only Vernon Baker was still alive.


List of African-American Medal of Honor recipients

The cook who fought back

I can Imagine what those Officers(Brass) from ( WW2 ) would of Said Now as there is a Mulatto in the White House well seeing the Majority of his Life was Raised by White Grand Parents Well he has to have some of that Royal Illuminati Bloodline to fit in the Gene Pool on his Mothers Side Right for the Masonic Illuminati

Barack Obama (descendant of Edward I of England and William the Lion of Scotland) (?)

Hell I Look White Pass as White Fit In as White but im Still have that 1/3 Native American In me

I know I'll get flamed for this, but...white is considered the "pure race", because it was technically the first to become what is considered nowadays to be "civilized".

To be fair, this is not my opinion. To me, it makes no difference. You can learn just as much from a backwoods hick as you can from a multimillion dollar manager at Chase Bank.

However, this is the rationalization you will find clearly written in our history. Black man was uneducated, white man was educated. Therefore, black was considered dog, and white was considered lord and master. This has continued on until anyone partially black was "impure", and thus considered plainly black. Anyone who was purely white was considered...well, white.

The logic is repulsive, but solid.
Diversity ftw...

Nice nazi pic dude...that says all we need to know...you actually don't have to speak to clarify what side of the coin you are going to fall on...so you are really that racist...you really think skin color marks capacity of input?
I apologize if you think I am "judging" you but I think you have made your position clear in this thread and multiple others...you are a supremacist and you are seeking justification...which you will never ever find.

Most intellectual people have came to terms that aside from theology...there is no difference in people...if we really were biologically different...well....we couldn't breed....wake up loser dipsh*t!...we can...and do...and the right wing paranoia is only going to fire the inter-racial engine even more...people hate your hate...isn't that funny?

Is that so? Sounds weird since its being suggested/worded so vaguely. Fishy!

Everything points to his father being 100% Kenyan African who happens to be Muslim. (And Americans suspect all muslims of automatically being Arab, mideastern, among other things)

Please clarify what "mideast" "arab" geographic area his dad is half and from where (maternal, paternal grand? or what)

What's more intriguing to me is the FACT that Obama's Father is/was Muslim family and his mother is of Jewish family.

(That perhaps deserves another thread, ie, why Barrack Hussain Obama is muslim and does muslim prayers in White House even though his mom is Jewish, why doesn't he do Torah/Yehudi/Jew prayers in the White House... would that wreak of Zionism in the White House? Rothschilds would not have that).

Through his MOM, does OBAMA have some blue blood??

How come Obama is a BLACK MAN cuz he's 1/2 Black, but not White even though hes 1/2 White?,


If you can ask that question in all seriousness you are a complete and utter idiot.
Would you call someone of mixed race and white skin a black person just because he or she is partly of black origin or would you simply refer to the actual skin tone of said person ?


people of mixed race can be either black , white or anything in between. It is a crazy idea i know but have you tried using your eyes ?


This has to be the most retarded question i have ever seen posted on here.

That does wrap it up in America, you are either Black or White.



If you're mixed, you're BLACK in the American eye, figures.

Likewise even if Obama is half Jew, Americans would frown on a "black" Jew.

Again, even though he's half white, half black, half muslim, half jew.

And yet you prefer everyone to refer to obama as a white man or, at the very least avoid calling him a black man. Denying that we have a black president.

How ironic.

Neither does the Democrat Party care about him. He is useful as long as he can rope people of color into believing their bogus socialist agenda. Sorry to say that, but really Obama is just Marxist to me.

LOL see this is a really simple example of how ingrained racism is in this culture. You said Obama was raised with priviledge as if all blacks are poor and raised in ghettos and nobody found issue or pointed this out. So if he were mixed but grew up the you idealize blacks growing up....that would make him 'blacker?' Because the genetics would still be the same.

You are looking for something to argue about. The point is that the Media portrayed Obama as the champion of the oppressed black man and brown man and Hispanic and female and any other minority that could be oppressed by ''whitey''.

The Media wanted an anti-white candidate to do their anti-American bidding.

It doesn't matter. All humans originally had dark skin. He is considered "black" by the public because he has dark skin. In reality race is stupid way to classify people.
