VITAL STATISTICS OF THE UNITED STATES 1961 at
says on page 231 under the section "Race and color" the following:
"Births in the United States in 1961 are classified for vital statistics into white, Negro, American Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Aleut, Eskimo, Hawaiian and Part-Hawaiian (combined), and "other nonwhite."
"The category "white" includes, in addition to persons reported as "white," those reported as Mexican or Puerto Rican. With one exception, a reported mixture of Negro with any other race is included in the Negro group; other mixed parentage is classified according to the race of the nonwhite parent and mixtures of nonwhite races to the race of the father. The exception refers to a mixture of Hawaiian and any other race, which is classified as Part-Hawaiian. In most tables a less detailed classification of "white" and "nonwhite" is used."
Obama's "Certification of Live Birth" shows father's race as "African". That word was not used in 1961 to describe race.
You can draw your own conclusion.
What race is African? Is it different than European, Russian, South American, or North American?
Good pick up. I have always wondered about that. I assumed that Hawaii may have just become politically correct and started issuing fairly recently COLBs that changed Negro to African. Could that be the explanation? Worth asking the state of Hawaii.
Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.
I still want to see a photo-reproduction of the original long form birth certificate with the hospital named and delivering doctor's signature.
There may be some Dutch African decendants surprised by this....
That is because we haven’t seen a Birth Certificate. Just a Certification, which may or may not match the actual Birth Certificate. We really don’t even know if Barack Obama is his original name.
I was listening to Hugh Hewitt yesterday and he called all birthers nuts, on the level of 9/11 truthers. He then proceeded to take only callers that agreed with him, and pronounced that this will be the last time he talks about the birth certificate idiocy, period.
Wonder if he will eventually eat those words.
Unfortunately, our Govt Controled Media is not good at finding and reporting facts. They find opinions and guess’s make better stories.
But don't let that little fact get in the way of insanity.
There is more circumstantial evidence Obamah is not a naturalized citizen than there is saying his is.
“Obama” translated to English means Liar!
For a 1961 document- that term is a dead tipoff it is fake
the race term was “negro”
This also shows whoever dummied this document up was
a) not very smart
b) probably too young to remember when “negro” was a race, not an insult
c) too politically correct to use the term “negro”
Yikes! I’ve been kind of skeptical about the entire thing, but this is reminding me a lot of Dan Rather’s memos.
