When people tell you that you are something your whole entire life, you start to believe it. Hence, why Obama calls himself black.

@oz, you have no actual argument or rebuttal. You just keep responding with statements that don't address my actual point. Mixed people come all types of shades and colors, but the ones who come out with Obama's and Haley Berry's skin tone are considered to be black by 99% of Americans. Now I don't agree with this, but that's just the way it is.

Literally anyone on Earth could be Hispanic, since it is not a racial distinction but an ethnic/national/cultural one.

Black people voting for Obama just because he is black. Oh and according to people in Harlem, Obama's VP was Sarah Palin.
And Alexandra Pelosi's documentary "Right America: Feeling Wronged" shows conservative Republican Tea Partiers making even dumber statements than the ones on this video. So black Democrats have no lock on that stupidity.

The guy moves here, and all of a sudden he's the authority on black people, race relations, and to boot, becomes a hardcore southern Rebel!

I mean really...it gets no better than that.

You all mean to tell me that as long as I have been debating this person, I just thought they were a stupid mofo. Now I find out they sound so stupid because they really don't know what the hell they are talking about in reality!!

So a foreign mofo is now the "decider" for all things black..LOL!!

I can't be too surprised though, if you look at their treatment of aboriginals, it's the same game played by a different name.

@recon/desert, I told you! Read my post! I refuse to respond to murdock Jr. He is completly clueless! The sad thing about it is that he refuses to believe that he just does not know what he is talking about
