Yeah but look what happened when Tiger Woods tried to make that point - he kept telling people that he wasn't black but that he was half black, half Thai. African Americans were mad at him for saying he wasn't black because like Obama they regard him as one of thir own. Thai Americans would only accept his mother being Thai but not him. There was quite a fuss about it in the news at the time,
I absolutely love America and the people there but I can't stand their outdated views on Race and specifically Mixed people.
