“Unfortunately this doesn’t hold up as true....”
My responses were based on what was stated the Instruction Manual. A Foreign Born population chart has nothing to do with the subject at hand. Are you now claiming that Barack Obama Sr. was not born in Kenya? His race was listed as African on the document and those instructions said,”If the racial entry is “C,” “Col.,” “Black,” “Brown,” or “A.A.,” “Afro-American,” and the birthplace is the United States, consider the parents race as Negro. If birthplace of parent is not in the United States, code as other nonwhite.” Now you can argue to your hearts content, but, I didn’t write the manual, nor did I code the document. I’d say that coding the entry African as 9 other nonwhite was close enough for government work. It really would not matter that much in the end, one way or the other.
You’re not understanding. I’m syaing I don’t believe that instruction manual is authentic because it’s asking for race to be classified according to the birthplace of the individual, which does NOT jibe with the way the census classified races. I’m saying that Barack Sr. should have been coded as Negro because the Federal classification of race recognized persons as Negroes even when they were NOT born in the United States.
