We all have a common chromosome from some "sista" in Africa about 100,000 years ago. Scientists say.

So, where are my food stamps and diversity perks?

Well, then it's settled. Obama is now proven to be officially and without any further doubt 100% black.
You forgot 100% ignorant, thinking that the American People are stupid enough to put up with his bullcrap lies! Ummm are we sure he wasn't a used car salesman at one point in his life??

Is there ANYTHING, I mean ANYTHING this President will not lie about.

Does he really think we're stupid enough to buy this crap?

I don't think so. He doesn't seem to get embarrassed about being caught in lies, either. He must think that's standard behaviour for all. He seems incapable of telling the truth. The strange thing is that Americans knew he was a liar from the start, yet were still willing to vote for the racist Muslim. It's typical of individuals like Obama to denigrate their white side and promote the other. He has from the start done this, beginning with his white Grandmother. He has never once taken the side of a white person in an incident but always comes to the suport of blacks. I fear voters will still be ignorant enought to reelect him in spite of this. We need a President who treats all races equally and who won't sell us out to the Muslims.

Thanks to belonging to Ancestry.com , I find after years of research, You can find 95% of Afro Americans have Whites in there family backgrould, and what is surprising about 90% of Whites can find
someone Black in their backgroud. My Great Great Grandfather was White, and I am very prould of that. Why can't we get over all this mess about what color you are. Bless those that admit their true background.

I like your way of thinking. It is sad that we can't all just see each other as fellow human beings and be proud of our races, not think one is superior to the other. I have always felt it would be very boring if we were always the same race, culture,and language. I think God must have felt it better to have variety instead of the same color, etc.
