50% Caucasian
43.75% Arab African
6.75 % African
Only way he is "African American" is if you are invoking the Jim Crow laws which stated that one drop of African blood made you 100% African, which is nonsense.
Do the math.

I do not tolerate all this babble about black, white, and mutiracial, as long as a red-haired, freckled, tall Protestant Irishman is equal to a black-haired, "olive" skinned, short southern Italian, in the eyes and quotas of the so-called "diversity" establishment.

I can think of absolutely no color-related barrier faced by Obama in his entire life. I can think of no reason why a descendent of slave should consider him as one of them.

Admittedly, he showed that you don't have to be lily white. But there are a lot of Jews, Italians, Polish, and Irish in this country, and I don't see them up there, either (except for the one Irish who was shot).

But that's all right. Once one gets into the habit of ignoring the presidents, it's easy to ignore another one.

So if a black guy wants to consider himself white, call himself white, move to and do community service in Whitebread, Oklahoma, and marry a white woman and have white babies, he's white, right?

Pretty sad blacks claim to fame (Obamas father) was just another deadbeat black father. Obama was raised by whites, and it shows in his intelligence and morals.
To me... Obama is WAY different than the average black hip hop wanna be american i see on the streets. And thats why i have no problems supporting him.
Your right, he isn't your average hip hopper. He is reminiscent of those that flock to the country and embarrass Americans, you know, like the Africans, the most academically successful immigrants. Oh yeah and Asians.

He might be Black in skin tone but he was raised and educated by Whites leaving him with a world view that is decidedly not Black. He is the epitome of the oreo that White America can respect. He is the antithesis of Jesse Jackson and thank God Fitzgerald pulled the plug on Jackson Jr's attempt at buying credibility.

Do the math.
Where the hell did you get Arab from? Obama is 1/2 black Kenyan, 1/2 white Irish. That makes him biracial. He is the first president to have a large amount of black/African blood. So that explanation make him the first non white president, because of the racist one drop rule, the racist whites created themselves. If you won't to try to use the ODR, then you can say at least 1/3rd of whites have some black ancestries. How do you like them apples.

Ask an immigrant from Africa or Haiti what they think of African Americans and you'll be surprised. Most Black immigrants are embarrassed by them and their behavior

Anyone can get a degree (or create a web site), it's something else to be successful
Do some Internet research on African African-American IQ and get back to me. While you're at it, take a look at African-American crime statistics.
So what is your IQ? Since you can sit on a forum and dictate to others what success is or what is intelligence, why not humor us with your tales of personal success and your extraordinary IQ?

I can't wait to hear this....

but it's true and your reply shows your ignorance

African born blacks residing in western countries, as a group may possess IQs that are between 5 points and a full standard deviation (15 IQ points) above that of whites living in these countries (see, Gottfredson, 1998; Ostrowsky, 1999; Richardson, 2002; Cross, 1994; Williams, 2005)

– This is especially true for those living in the United States and in the UK. One may also expect to find, according to much of the corroborative literature that relates IQ with education, approximately twice the number of African born immigrants with IQs in the 115 range, than among the general white American population (Gottfredson, 1998; Ostrowsky, 1999; Williams, 2005), and “more” than twice the number of African immigrants in the 125 IQ range (Gottfredson, 1998; The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, 1999-2000).
