So Obvious

If he wins, will Obama will be the first black president?  Think about it for a moment.  His mother was white and his father was black.  So wouldn’t it be just as accurate to say that he’s white?  Someone pointed this out to me recently.  I was shocked by the obviousness of it.

I’m not advancing any kind of racist argument that he’s “not black enough” or “not white enough”.    I’m suggesting that being ‘white’ is NOT a default status, which if you fall short of to any degree, you’ll lose.  

Although, maybe Obama is clearly black in the sense that he is a ‘visible minority’.  In that sense, he’s not white.  I guess being white means not being a visible minority.
