bill clinton — everyone knows that!
I am so sick of this hyphenated “African-American” crap!!!
They left out the hyphen!
Let’s see now. We can eliminate Gerald Ford because he was never actually ELECTED President.
Particularly since Obama isn’t one, in the true meaning of the phrase. He’s a mixed race child of a white American teenager and a foreign African graduate student.
The term actually refers to people of all or part African descent born in this country to persons of African descent, most of whom are descended from Africans brought here a long time ago as slaves.
Obama’s just riding in on their coat-tails. In fact, foreigh born Africans are even excluded from the definition.
They should have had Warren G. Harding as the third choice.
Then any answer would have been arguably correct.
Abraham Lincoln should be on that list, if I recall correctly he was Melungeon on his mom’s side (Melungeon is a term used to refer to any of a number of multi-racial groups in the Appalachians, typically composed of African, Indian, White and sometimes Latin American mixture).
There’s a reason he looked like a deformed chimney brush, and that chimney-brush has a lot more claim to being African-American than the half-Kenyan - at least some of his ancestors were slaves.
barry is only half black if we are to believe his heritage. he’s not even the first full african american.
well, the only one with both US and African citizenship would be 0bama due to his father never being a US citizen and conveying that citizenship to his offspring at birth. this is known as ‘British by descent’ and is available to all first-gen
oh, sorry.... to factual?
Everyone knows Bill Clinton was the first Black President. His kindred think a guy should be able to have a BJ from a white girl every once in a while...
“Common core” challenges our children to peer into a problem, to discover correlating factors which may make our answer different.
Thus, under the antiquated “tradition” way of learning we might base on our answer on DNA, which would point to Obama. But with “common core” we learn that if we consider the question might define “African-American” as one with a penchant for portly white women, then of course the correct answer would be Bill Clinton.
Wow! Common Core has some real tough questions!!
This one must be for the first graders test, as
