    I think they do it because it adds to the hype. Saying he is the first black candidate has more zing than the first "biracial" candidate.
    **** Obama and **** you too.

    According to the laws of Biological science and the laws of the United States Barack isn't black but arabic. First Arabic President doesn't have the same ring to it though.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

    Hence my usage of the word "phoney." ;)
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    I've often wondered the same thing. I saw an interview with Halle Berry years ago where she said she considered herself black because the black community embraced her. She was raised by her white mother. I think her black dad left them but I'm not positive. It just seemed like a slap in the face to her mom though.

    I guess when she talks about the black community that embraced her, that does not include her black father that abandoned her. Man, her and Barack have a lot in common. Except appearance.

    I would say that a lot of whites and Hispanics who actually know blacks don't really consider Obama "black" either. His upbringing and life certainly don't reflect the average experience of working class or middle class blacks in this country. Even Obama fails to find himself sufficiently black and he goes on and on about this in those dreadful books.

    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
