AFRO-AMERICAN/BI-RACIAL/MULIT-RACIAL WHATEVER. . Doesnt matter what Obama is but who he is. There are no more Afro-American that are full blood Africans thanks to the slave master who took the African slave woman whenever he wanted to and then took his daughters to bed that he had fathered by her. White people want to put labels on Afro- Americans and Afro-Americans are mixed with every race of people in this country, Irish, English, German, Jewish, Hispanic, and Native American, etc. My grand-children are muliti-racial, and they consider themselves all of the above and if there is no box to check they create one. Blacks are not hung up on what race they are, white people are and sometimes they cannot distinguish whether some are black or white. I am Native American raised by a black family and I am black through and through. My children are Native American and Puerto Rican (black) and they are black. Go figure. All aspects of our lives are black and we dont have an identify problem because what race we are dont determine who we are. When Afro-Americans have family gatherings, it looks like they are the United Nations. I dont even know another Native American and do not feel I need to know one to complete who I am. I have been told that my father is Irish and French. I dont know and I do not care. Afro-Americans are the best of all races because they are of all races.
