He's not America's first black president — he's America's first mixed-race president."

I don't suppose Freeman will ever wake up to the realization that race is an artificial construct. We're all mixed "race". It's as if we demarcated people based on height; "the 6 foot or better race", the "4 and under race".

By the standard of Elizabeth Warren’s deeming herself Native American, Obama is surely white as is Michelle Obama because of her long lost white ancestors.

I see it as an attempt to distance black people from the First Black President’s stench. You won’t get away with it Freeman, if that was your intent. You own it. We know it.

As far as I understand his “race”, Obama is even 25% black. His father was more than 50% Arabic.

I know the origin of this and it is false because it's conflating "arabic" in culture and/or language/religion with race. It would be like saying that since about 75% of Americans are "white" that black Americans must be about 75% white because they are Americans.

In Morgan Freeman’s reality it is probably the guy from 24.

AG Holder is obviously at least half white, if not more. But no touching him because he has some black in him. I seriously can't believe we are still such a racist nation, but I know who to blame.

Look at Rev. Wright next to Barry Obama. That dude is more "white" than "black."

But since he is from Arabian ancestry which is Caucasian he is more white than black in most regards.

Again, incorrect. An ethnic heritage that is "arabic" in culture/language/religion, doesn't necessarily have anything to do with race. I find it difficult to believe that so many people continue to miss the point. I can only guess it is from a desperate need for a polemic--weird, considering that there are so many other truly low hanging fruit available.

I think Morgan Freeman changed some after he caught flack for pulling a Woody Allen (2009) and also after playing Nelson Mandela in Invictus (2009). http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1057500/

Who knows who the real mother and sire of Barack Hussein Soetoro Malik Shabbaz Marshall Davis really is.

DNA tests are in order!

I would also like to add - just like Obama, his roots are not the same as black Americans. He is a descendant of West Indians who immigrated to the United States.

All of that talk of "racism" that he does is nothing more than him getting in on the race hustling business. He has the nerve to say that "America is scared to talk about race", when he, his parents, and grandparents benefited from being in this country, much more than if they had stayed in Barbados.

IMO, Sr. Is not his biological father.

My bet is that EmpERROR Zero’s birth certificate has “unknown” in place of his father’s name because his mother was the sandra fluke of her time.

Let’s give these poverty pimp, race hustlers, and predator producing welfare broodmares the reparations they so desire.....

Then deduct all those years of public schooling, public housing, welfare, social security, medicare/medicaid, food stamps, EITC, and all the other social handouts they have recieved over the years. Then force them to pay all those back taxes they owe.

They would be looking at a net loss of thousands of dollars.

Does that make Morgan Freeman half right?

It makes Morgan (Moron) Freeman a half wit.

It's true that Osama isn't entirely black in terms of genetics.But the only references *I've* ever heard him make to his white relatives is to claim that one of them was denied insurance coverage for her cancer (which has been proven to be a lie) and to refer to another one as "a typical white person".

Mr Freeman....how about Dr Condeleza Rice? Entirely black and entirely female.Is that good enough for ya? I'd wager the clothes on my back that she'd display competence that's 10,000 light years ahead of that of that half-white guy.

So what percentage makes you black, Morgan? I’d wager that you’re not %100 black either. I guess you just want to use grievance to get another black president elected.

Yeah, I’ve never been sure she was his mother. Where is the proof? I don’t think he looks part white. Everybody dead associated with him from that side of the family. Something seems vewy vewy fishy.

I’m left-handed and wear my watch on my right. I thought most people wore their watch on the opposite arm. Just sayin’”

That way, when I was writing, I could see the time while I wrote. That was way back in school though, I don’t do too much writing these days!”

Today I use my cell phone as a watch, but for most of my life wore my watch on my right hand for the same reason TurnTo cited. To say most people wear their watch on their opposite hand does not mean all people do so. Things like that are only possible indicators, not positive proof, of a problem with a photo.

If I were investigating the legitimacy of a photo and saw a left-handed man with a watch on the left hand, would I ask questions? Probably. But sometimes the questions have legitimate answers.

We've got so many good reasons based on President Obama’s politics to have problems with him that I don't see the need to have problems with things like whether he is really left-handed or not.

Frermann’s right, albeit for the wrong reason. Bill Clinton was the first Black President. The Blacks told us so.

Well, Obama’s biological father was from Africa, but he sure didn’t raise him. Obama was raised by whites and Indonesians in cities that were like 1% black (Honolulu and Jakarta).

But Freeman’s point, that Obama is half white biologically, is really silly coming from someone with so much white blood that he actually has freckles.

My guess is, in Spanish that would be either mulato or, if his (theoretical, I realize) "baby-daddy" was, say, 1/4 white, then he'd be more like cuarteron de mulato (our "quadroon"), also called in Spanish morisco and tresalvo.

Who cares? But geeze, just look at the guy. Other than his hair he has all the features of a caucasian with a lite tan. Hell, I've been darker when I used to surf and hang out in the Sun.

He's the racist because he has SOME black blood and talks about "his people". Uh, gee, what about his half or more white heritage and their people?

I can't believe our nation is being led by racists. Hell, even Bambi is half white. I am totally disgusted by these racists. They keep pushing this racist crap on me, I'm going to get really bigoted. Yes, I said that, but they will have earned it.
