Everyone I just wanted to make a quick point here. First of all I am of the mixed race. (Black and white) So is Obama. Every Obama article that I have read so far says something about Obama being black. Obama is also of the MIXED RACE. His mother was Caucasian and his father African American. I take it offensive when someone calls me black or white because I am neither, and the same goes for Obama. I find it quite annoying when I read something on the internet about Obama being black. You might think I am reacting but are pink and red considered the same color?
So as a final thought ask yourself this:

Whether you are white, black, red, green, smart, or dumb wouldn’t it bother you if people kept calling you something your not?

It bothers me how people tend to mix the race of black people and mix people together.
