Orly Taitz: Obama's Long-Form Birth Certificate Should Say 'Negro' Not 'African'
TPMMuckraker ^ | 4/27/2011 | Ryan J. Reilly

"In those years ... when they wrote race, they were writing 'Negro' not 'African'," Taitz says. "In those days nobody wrote African as a race, it just wasn't one of the options. It sounds like it would be written today, in the age of political correctness, and not in 1961 when they wrote white or Asian or 'Negro'."

If he was born in the U.S. (which he was), then yes, he is.

The 14th Amendment says: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

Emphasis mine. It seems pretty unambiguous. Anyway, isn't the point of this country that it doesn't matter who your parents are? All men created equal, etc. etc.

“Both Trump’s parents were citizens before Trump was born.”

I don’t buy this excuse, they need to be NATURAL BORN citizens, just to make sure.

Trump needs to be a natural born citizen to be President. (which he is)

His parents need only be ‘citizens’. (which they are)

Don’t know if Buchanan’s father or Hoover’s mother ever became a citizens, but Jackson was born in the colonies and was a youth when we became an independent country.

This is asinine. If Obama forged this he would have had experts on hand to make it accurate for a 1961 BC. They would not have done something as stupid as writing “african” in the box if they were forging it.

The only difference I can see would be that Barry’s supposed dad REALLY was African. So comparing any other black baby born in Hawaii in 1961 with Barry would be like comparing apples to fruit cocktail. Now if you can find another AFRICAN who’s certificate says NEGRO...

Of course not! That would be ridiculous! It should read “Pacific Islander” as race.

Obama isn’t a Negro, African, Black or Colored. He is a Mulatto or Mixed race

“His parents need only be ‘citizens’. (which they are)”

sez who? You become a citizen by being married to one for 3 years and reciting an oath. In light of Obama theories, that’s hardly enough. Come clean Donald

It will be interesting to see, if Jindal ever runs for President or wins the Nom, if similar arguments will exist, only flipped.

Would they put “Ireland” as race?

I don’t think so.

But Ireland is to Europe like Kenya is to Africa, so if you were born in Ireland, your birthplace would be Europe, if, Obama was born in Kenya, but his birthplace is shown as Africa. Just saying............

Amazing. Taize is pushing the same "African" objection two years after it has been debunked.

FYI, parents are allowed to classify their race however they want on a birth certificate. If they don't like any of the categories listed, they can check "other" and fill in the blank. Obama's father, being an African nationalist, obviously preferred to classify himself as "African" rather than as "Negro."

But in 1960, everyone from the President on down said Negro.

There was a comedian during the Johnson administration making a living doing impressions of the president.

One of his funniest one liners was, "Just when I learned to say neeegurow(negro) they went and changed it to Black."

Thats like saying Norwegian instead of Caucasian. It really is strange.

People need to start educating themselves and stop spewing stuff you hear on tv..

It would be like describing Obama’s race as American, not Negro or Black
