Barack Obama is born from white mother (Kansas) and black father (Kenyan). So he isn't whole white nor whole black. Yet, he's touted by the media as being black. How is half-black and half-white = whole black? They don't even say the word half. He would be defined as a mulatto (a person of mixed white and black ancestry, esp. a person with one white and one black parent). Yet the media wants everyone to believe he just like the blacks in America. How so? He is lighter than that demography. He is interracial. So when i hear first black president, is that really deceiving because they are basically saying he's full black, not a drop of white blood. He would be the first President to be interracial, half-black, half-white, mulatto, to have a white and black parent. At least the African-American usage is correct. He is part Kenyan and part Kansan. But i do cannot see him as the first black president since he's half. Maybe the first half black president or the first half white president or maybe the different ignore the other half president.
