Usually by considering them just another Black.

You nailed it. Obama would just be another N-word. When Tiger Woods owned golf, he was Cablinasian. When his series of sleazy dalliances was revealed, he was just another black athlete again.

I could see him getting whupped by the cops, "But I'm half white! I'm biracial! Can't you hit me half as hard as you'd hit a real Negro?"

Do forms now days have a check box for multiracial?

Last time I filled a form it asked if white, black, latino, asian or other.

Maybe a mixed race just checks what they think they look like, okay?

Obama 's looks appear to be the black race, to me, I doubt if he'd check white.

Maybe he should have checked white, so everyone could blame more on him.
How? What does that mean, anyway?

Why doesn't President Obama acknowledge that he's half-white or multiracial?

Last time I checked he was busy running a country.

Besides, he probably knew way before you brought it up.

A person can think themselves whatever they want,doesn't make it true.
Race is more of a sociocultural category than a biological category. Seems as though you missed that part.

I'd suggest that you educate yourself by starting here:
