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.
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 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.
