The media keeps indicating that Obama is an african american. Why can't they be accurate and indicate he is of mixed race with african and caucasian parents. Is this some kind of new genetics where caucasian parents produce caucasian offspring, african parents produce african offspring, but caucasian and african parents also produce african offspring. Presumably this means that the offspring of martian and caucasian parents is a martian! Maybe our next president will be a martian!

    Why can't a legit birth certificate be shown? Why was his personal info sealed after the election?

    The term African-American(AA) does NOT mean Black !!!!!

    A person can be BOTH Mixed-Race and yet full AA
    -- because the AAs are an ETHNIC group (much like
    the Swedish, the Irish, etc.) and are NOT a RACE group.

    The reason President Obama is NOT an AA is NOT because he is
    Mixed-Race (as, a lot of people born to two (2) AA parents are also
    Mixed-Race as well) -- but rather, it is because President Obama
    is NOT "a descendant of the survivors of the chattel slavery system
    found on the continental United States during the antebellum period"
    (which is what the ACTUAL definition of 'African-American' truly is).

    The following links may be of some help to you in trying to understand
    the DIFFERENCE between the terms 'African-American' and 'Black'.

    He shows no respect for his white side that I have ever heard from him.
    It is as he can't come together with himself and hates that he is white as well

    I've heard one media outlet say that he is the first mixed-race to hold office, but I've only heard that once.
    You would think that in day of political correctness there would be more focus on mixed race people. It's like you can't call yourself white if you're mixed race but you can call yourself black.
    Weird.

    he is bi-racial. That's a fact-not that there's anything wrong with that.

    maybe - but this is not the change I can follow -
    but , think if he had down played his " blackness" what do you think the reaction of the black voters would have been

    It certainly worked they were like yo man he is one of us therefore, he must be good. Little did they know his salary during his community organizer days was made over getting the poor and uneducated to believe him and do what he said. Not too far from what happend in this election besides he bought so many votes he could not lose no matter what he believed or said he would do.
