Itís official: Obama is black
MSNBC.com ^ | April 3, 2010 | Staff

Posted on 04/03/2010 6:40:21 AM PDT by fightinJAG

He may be the world's foremost mixed-race leader, but when it came to the official government head count, President Barack Obama gave only one answer to the question about his ethnic background: African-American.

The White House confirmed Friday that Obama did not check multiple boxes on his U.S. Census form, or choose the option that allows him to elaborate on his racial heritage. He ticked the box that says "Black, African Am., or Negro."

Exactly. Whether he’s black or not has nothing to do with anything. The problem is that he’s Red.

If a Caucasian who was born in South Africa and emigrates to the United States do they answer the question concerning race on their census form as “African-American?”

Fine by me... at least he hadn't created a little box and write in a description "Saint, Living Legend and/or God", then check it off.

The Census Bureau said that information on the form was kept confidential. If this is so, then why are they releasing this information?

All the more reason to be careful with what you give them on the forms.

There is no getting away from it. He has a white Mom so it does not matter how dark or light his skin is or if his hair is straight or curly - he is half Black and Half white. There is a $500 fine for falsifying information on the form.

The other side of this story is why is he ashamed of being half white?

Why would he not check “mixed”? His white mother and white grandparents raised him, not his black father. Why deny half your idenity and the genetics of the family who raised you?

I really don’t understand what this article is about or why MSNBC published it.

Before the election, Obama was portrayed as an inclusive person and a bridge between races.

Biracials, who were often ridiculed by blacks as "Zebras" and "Oreos", saw his biracial reality as a way to escape the racist ridicule.

In the end, however, Obama's self-chosen race is whatever brings him the most political benefit.

Bears repeating.

I just don't get why the LSM continues to bring up race when no one except Chris Matthews is interested in it.

He wouldn’t be where he is if had come out looking more white.

He’d be a good case for a psychiatrist. . Despite barely knowing them he apparently has clung to his African relatives for his identity, their grudges are his grudges. He hates the British because they tortured his grandfather and so it affects the foreign policy of the United States. He seems to hate whites - maybe because his mother shoved him aside to grandparents who perhaps saw him as their token black. A very screwed up person.

As Sarah said - the presidency of the US should not be a journey of personal discovery.

Historically it was always the MOTHER who determined a person’s race. Ishmael was born to an Egyptian, a slave, in the deep south, it was never who the father was, but a slave woman always gave birth to a slave. So, in the case of Barry, his race should be ‘white’. But, on another note, I’ve talked to scores of people who are checking false boxes, just to make the government controlled media have glitches. Last time the census takers came around, I told them I was Jewish!

I marked mine as “Other: Unknown”.

I really don’t know the names or races of all sixteen of my great-great-grandparents. According to the way these things are figured, if any of those sixteen people were a racial minority, I, too, am that racial minority.

Could one have been a Native American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Black or Hispanic? It is surely possible, maybe even probable.... So I have to pretty much presume that there is a good possibility that I am some racial minority or another.

Given the penalties for falsifying the document, I did the only thing any responsible person could have done, in the circumstances, and answered that I do no know.

There was no box to check for “Do not care”...

Read the article.

"The Census Bureau" did not realease that information.

"The White House" did.

To use a medical analogy, under medical privacy laws, your hospital cannot divulge one bit of your medical information without your written permission.

You, on the other hand, can publish your entire medical record on the Internet and have it read from here to Outer Mongolia if it floats your boat.

I know a bi-racial man who grew up with the white side of his family, just like Obama did. Just like Obama, he barely knew his father, but his mother and grandmother and other extended family cared for him, loved him, raised him and there was never any tension or question about race one way or the other. He did not view himself as “separate but equal” from his family because his skin color was different from theirs. Nor did such a thing ever occur to his family.

I’ve said for a while that in today’s society race is nothing but a SOCIAL CONSTRUCT. As Obama said in his bio, I believe, he consciously chose to take on the identity of a “black man,” and one of the reasons he went to Chicago was to learn how to be a “black man.”

Whatever.

His mother, née Dunham, was Irish. Somehow, I haven’t heard a lot of protest from my Irish friends over offense taken at this ethnic slight. At best, he’s a halfa$$ed president.

Which means that when you go to the doctor, there is yet one more form to sign, that gives them the right to do whatever the Hell they want to with your medical information. And don't even think about not signing that form. No tickee, no shirtee!

That the guvmint even asks its citizens to check a box indicating their race — what a hoax.

Why don’t they check a box: what race do you or others think you look like and which cultural identity accept as your own?
