AND his middle name is Hussein!

Location: Green line near Columbia Heights

Crazy man: You better believe that a black man just rocked your world! And his name is Barack Obama! And he stole the White House from right under your white nose!

Kid in GW shirt: Sir, I voted for Barack Obama.

Crazy man: Yeah, well, I bet you didn't know he was black!

Kid in GW shirt: I bet you didn't know he was half-white.

Hahahaha...I love it! People seem to forget that he isn't 100% Black.

Unfortunately, few people are 100% black. Unless, they've come directly from Africa, there is a very high probability that there is some white in the ancestry of most blacks in America. Circumstances of which, as I said, are unfortunate.

Perhaps I missed something, but what makes it so "unfortunate" that there are few Americans that are 100% black? In a society that screams diversity from the moutaintops, it seems this would be something we should value.

To say that mixing races with black/African is less fortunate or less desirable, you're also saying that to be black is best.

I think the person was referring to the circumstances of the "mixing" not the mixing itself
