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.
D@MNIt...good point. LOL
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
Or, was “influenced” ($$$) to make the change...during Opossum’s several vacations to Hawaii.
From Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream Speech," delivered 28 August 1963:
But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we've come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.
Which “African” was BHO Sr according to the COLB ?
What that “cut and pasted crap” says to me is that in 1961, the states that comprise the United States of America, including the state of Hawaii, used those race classifications for birth certificates. Thus, there would be no way that Hawaii, or any other state in the union, would have used “African” as a classification, since that classification did not exist.
Am I missing something here?
Theory: The noise was ratcheted up on this issue BECAUSE the truth will come out very soon and Obama wanted as much confusion as possible.
How did the New York Times refer to blacks in 1961?? Negroes? African?? hmmmm
Hawaii probably has precious few examples of birth certificates from that era that needed negro, black or African.
By the way save that pdf document to your hard drive because the link will probably be wiped out any time now.
reminds me of the wrong font memo rather-gate case.
I went through colored/negro/afro-American to African American. In the 60s we went from Negro to black, as in black power and black panthers, but no afro or African. Also, racial designation was Negro. Which should be on a birth certificate.
Perhaps someone can explain if this was the case in Hawaii.
No one was called African unless they were born in Africa.
You are missing the point. The USG sets the reporting parameters and defines how the data is reported so they can compile it nationally. I would assume that Hawaii would adhere to those standards. Today, it may be African, which is why I posited that the recently issued COLBs [secondary documents] use the term African.
You may be speaking of me as I have held that position for a number of months here at FR.
But, after seeing a 1963 HI LF/BC, I recognize that the there is no place to enter the race of the child, only the parents.
I’m beginning to wonder of Stanley refused to give the father’s name thereby only her race would be on the LF/BC. That would mean official documentation going forward for little Barry would have him classified as caucasian (by default?).
All of his official records through-out his pre-age-of-majority life would say he was white.
No cred in the urban street, if true.
did you get that from O’Reilly’s Factor staff? Crack researchers they are
The ministry of truth is hard at work on the revisions.
Be aware that offering up altered documents as public evidence is felony fraud.
