Both. Move on.
The question was, is Obama white or Black.

"Both" was the anwwer.

This creates some confusion on an intellectual basis.
If Obama is both white and black, please explain why virtually 100 percent of the black population voted for him. What was such a significant motivation for a race that the entirety of the race cast their vote for Obama?

Affirmative Actions are programs intended to affirm the civil rights and guarantees within the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S Constitution by taking positive action to protect them from, "the lingering effects of pervasive discrimination, enacted by White Southern State Legislators.
How old are you?
AA set policies at businesses where, initially, there were quotas they followed and the best person for a job wasn't necessarily the one hired because of AA.
I do believe it was unfair for awhile, but also that a more diverse business culture did result - which isn't a bad thing.

Well Affirmative Actions aren't laws.
Affirmative Actions is a set of policies or program that affirms your organization's compliance with the provisions of the 14th Amendment.
There is a general consensus that courts apply slightly less stringent scrutiny to affirmative action programs challenged under Title VII than to those challenged on equal protection grounds. But it remains true that judicial scrutiny under Title VII, though not as searching as judicial scrutiny under the Constitution's equal protection guarantee, is demanding nonetheless

Maybe you should spend time reading the Constitution before commenting on Supreme Court Decisions because is evident you have no idea of what you're taking about.
Besides, Felons have had the right to carry weapons in America longer than not. It's only been illegal for felons to have weapons since 1934.

Check past presidencies.

It will be the same throughout history.

Dufus, you still haven't answered the question. All it takes is to name a source of money.

Just look at you and see what the New Left rhetoric has created which abandoned the Old Left(FDR) in favor of this New Left rhetoric.

New Left

The New Left was a range of activists, educators, agitators and others in the 1960s and 1970s who focused their attention on marginal identities and, eventually, identity politics. They rejected involvement with the labor movement and Marxism's historical theory of class struggle. Abandoning the Marxist goals of educating the proletariat, the New Left turned to student activism as its reservoir of power.

In both the U.S. and Japan, the "New Left" was associated with the Hippie movement and college campus protest movements. The American New Left in particular opposed what it saw as the prevailing authority structures in society, which it termed "The Establishment", and those who rejected this authority became known as "anti-Establishment" .

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Left

Left-wing politics

In politics, left-wing describes an outlook or specific position that accepts or supports social equality, often in opposition to social hierarchy and social inequality. It usually involves a concern for those in society who are disadvantaged relative to others and an assumption that there are unjustified inequalities (which right-wing politics views as natural or traditional) that need to be reduced or abolished.

The political terms Left and Right were coined during the French Revolution (17891799), referring to the seating arrangement in the Estates General: those who sat on the left generally opposed the monarchy and supported the revolution, including the creation of a republic and secularization, while those on the right were supportive of the traditional institutions of the Old Regime. Use of the term "Left" became more prominent after the restoration of the French monarchy in 1815 when it was applied to the "Independents".

The term was later applied to a number of movements, especially republicanism during the French Revolution, socialism, communism, and anarchism. Beginning in the last half of the Twentieth Century, the phrase left-wing has been used to describe an ever widening family of movements, including the civil rights movement, anti-war movements, and environmental movements,[dubious discuss], and finally being extended to entire parties, including the Democratic Party in the United States and the Labour Party in the United Kingdom. In two party systems, the terms "left" and "right" are now sometimes used as labels for the two parties, with one party designated as the "left" and the other "right", even when neither party is "left-wing" in the original sense of being opposed to the ruling class.
