No.
I am a Vietman veteran, dufus.
Now, back to the issue you continually run away from like a dog escaping from Michael Vick's house:
You seem to be very ignorant of who lives in the United States, and how the demographics were differentiated by votes.
My great grandmother was the daughter of former slaves on a sugar cane plantation in Louisiana.
Her husband was a Spanish man who was the grandson of a Bayou Goula Native American woman.
That was from my maternal grandmother.
My maternal grandfather was the grandson of a jewish woman.
So, how about you tell me what I am.
Now, back to the question you are trying intensely to not answer:
Is Obama white, or black?
Yeah yeah yeah... Next you'll try to convince us that Yo DADDY is from Kenya! ROFLMAO

If you want to know what Obama's race is why don't you email him as get it from the horses mouth?

If I'm so racist (yes, I am white), then why would I vote for any number of African-American people, or Cuban?
At this point, with the knowledge I have to date, I would vote for:
Ben Carson, Condoleeza Rice, Herman Cain (all of whom are more "pure" African-American than Obama) and Marco Rubio? There are others I can't think of at the moment, but their color has absolutely nothing to do with why I would vote for them.
I don't care if a politician is purple, if I agree with their vision for our country, I will vote for them and campaign for them, as I have every other candidate with whom I agree politically.
I find it is usually the one who cries "racism" who is the racist. That seems to be the case here with your racist remarks.
You didn't have to point out the fact that you are white. We already summized as much. Let me say this. White people, you all need to stop trying to compare us to you all. Here's why.

1. We do not share the same ideas as you do.
2. We do not SEE things the same way you do.
3. We do not AGREE with the way to do things.
4. We do not Feel the same way you do about life or death

So just because YOU like a say...Condi Rice and you Say you would vote for her... We "African Americans" (a) do not believe you and (2) even if you would, WE WOULD NOT! I don't expect you to attempt to understand our reasons. It would be asking too much of a racist in denial. Clarence Carter, Condi Rice, Herman Cain, all have been brain washed and caught up in the senseless B.S. of white America which is why THEY would never be elected president if they had to depend on the Black Vote. Don't sell those wolf tickets to the Wolf Whisperer darling. We KNOW why you "Say" you'd vote for them. But Action speaks louder than words. All any of those three would have to do is support Obama (Actually Condi did as did Colin Powell) AND I wouldn't be surprised if Herman Cain cast his vote for Obama (truth be told) and YOU racist would throw them under the bus in a new york minute.

Obviously, virtually 100 percent of the black population cares.
So, out of curiosity, is Obama white or black?
Over 80% of African Americans voted for Clinton, who was referred to as "the first black president."

So is Clinton black?

And why do you redundantly ask the same question?

I know most of you SURMISED that I am white - I thought I'd point it out to support my statements.
I am a moderate conservative (which I have stated many times). I vote for any person who most closely aligns with my beliefs and vision for our country. We do have that right and obligation. However, because our president is one-half black, racism has become the deflection when we attempt to discuss issues and prefer other viewpoints than his.
Just because I would vote for Condi Rice or certain others, doesn't mean you have to agree with me. I don't expect you to -- you are a liberal and we, by nature, disagree on what we believe is best for our country. But to believe blacks have been brainwashed simply because they disagree with you, is to belittle yourself.
Each of us has a brain. Brains are similar. Our bodies function similarly. Calling me a liar is just as racist as the rest of your remarks. You call me a liar because you don't believe I would vote for a minority. You don't know me. Of course I vote regardless of color. We all should.
It's obvious you ONLY vote based on color. I'm sorry you have denied your brain the ability to look at all viewpoints, rather than just castigating those with whom you've been told you disagree. Obama and the mainstream media are telling you how to think -- and you're letting them.
I understand you have a different culture, and I embrace diversity. I appreciate differing viewpoints and do sometimes change my mind when I'm given an intelligent alternative. Just because my culture is different than yours, doesn't mean I don't have valid viewpoints. If you think that I can't have a valid viewpoint because my culture is different, then you are most definitely a racist.
I have voted in every election since I have been able to vote. I have voted for many persons of color simply because I believe in their vision for my community, my city, my country. I have voted across party lines, too, many times.
Pretend you are blind, and just listen. I'm guessing that won't change your mind, but you might be able to at least consider a different viewpoint even if you determine you still don't agree with it. I would appreciate the fact that you listened. Everyone hears, not not everyone listens. They are very different things.

Some similarities....
Barry Soetoro, half Kenyan mulatto that ended up in Chicago as a Marxist communist?

You think an idiot can manage a business the size of which Herman Cain manages. You are an idiot.

Alan West.... American patriot. Of course, an idiot according to your logic. Who would be an American patriot when the goddam president was an enemy of the United States during the Cold War, and just recently ordered all military units to disregard their default orders of responding to an attack on the embassy in Libya while he watched Al Qaeda kill Americans on the live video feed?
Then, the goddam president lies for two weeks trying to cover up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States.

Who would choose to be a patriot when even the goddam president is helping the enemy?
Alan West, that's who.

Here's the comparison again, for your reference when you give us your argument why these comparisons aren't accurate:

Hitler:
Political genius.
Social radical.
Consumed with racial hatred.
Sought revenge for a lost war.

Democrats:
Political genius.
Social radical.
Consumed with racial hatred.
Seek revenge for losing the Cold War.

So, where are the inaccuracies?
