Just like i tell people, my own son considers himself a black man with a white mother. And that's just what he'll tell anyone who asks.

I don't know why people take such issue with this. It's just how it is.

Utterly ridiculous. Dreams From My Father was published years before he decided to run for president; he mentioned being bi-racial when he made the keynote speech at the Democratic Convention in 2000. Of course, those of us in Illinois knew that about him long ago. Do you expect him to bring it up daily...like it is on C-D? The man has more pressing issues, but the one about bin Laden attacking us again is gone. He could be fuschia for all I care!

Thats what my father and his father's father thought also. Apparently either you don't know much about American history or you are completely in the denial. As long as racism exist, there will always be multiple Americas

What do you want the man to do?

He has shown photos of his white mother, and grandparents, he has not kept it a secret that his mother was white!

Why do you folks keep up this race of the President mess!

Give it a rest!
