Of course he is. The man has pure African blood flowing through his veins. He doesn't have blond hair or blue or green eyes. Furthermore, race is more of a social construct than biological anyway.

The biased Liberal media would love to brainwash the public into thinking he's all Black though.

Obama is not our first Black president as some people claim.
Wow...now I've heard it all. LMAO....Really sad how some folks are just SWIMMING in denial. Obama is Black...deal with it. And don't blame me for feeling this way.....your (White) ancestors made it so.

The point is that for hundreds of years it's been standard that if a person was "tainted" with Black blood, they were Black. I have no problem with that distinction. I am proud to be Black.

Last time I check American wasn't a race, so your question is unanswerable.

Now, I have a question for you....how would you feel if millions of Blacks started to identify as multiracial? Because of the vile, perverted ways of slavemasters, you'd be hard pressed to find a non-immigrant Black in America without a White person in their family lineage.

Obama is just as much White as he is Black there by making him our first bi-racial president.

You've heard of bi-sexuals well he is bi-racial.

Is it my fault a black man knocked up his white trash mother & ran? She has an illegitiment daughter by another man too either half Hawaiian or Indonesian making her Obama's half sister. The tramp got around didn't she?

Why is she white trash? Because she dared have a "Black" baby?

BTW, the little biracial slavery children of white mothers could have REALLY used this sudden inclusion about 300 years ago...instead they were killed.

Wouldn't bother me in the least...it would at least be factual.
