Well I read a Discussion, and some claimed that Obama is not Black just were choosen to be for Political Reasons and that he is a Mullato. "O-Ton: A Black Person doesnt come out from a White womb". Here is my take on it Well technically Obama is Half White/Half Black mixed. He has lighter Skin Tone and more European like Features then pure SSA. to Europeans he looks black, to proper SSA he looks exotic. But within the Context of African Culture in the USA, he is black. Race is a self Designation in the USA and I think if Obama sees himself as Black it is ok to see him as such. Well to most White People he looks just black, in deep SSA he would be seen as exotic but not by Africans in USA (who are mixed with White to varying degrees). He fits just fine.
