And Halle Berry ran as the 1st black actress to win an Oscar, even though she's mixed and her black father abandoned her white mother leaving her to raise her alone.

Yes, and that bothers me about her.  It seems like most interracial people consider themselves black if they have any black in their blood.  Halle Berry and Barrack Obama are hardly the only two who did this.
I worked with a girl who was mixed black and white...and her appearance was white.  But she still considered herself black because her father was black.

I don't get it...but it's how they see themselves and how they want the world to acknowledge them.

I think its leftover from the days of segregation and slavery - where if you were 1/16 black, you were all black.

Obama was burned in effigy back in 2007



Protesters burn effigies of Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois and President Bush in Lahore, Pakistan, on Aug. 5, 2007.

I'll give the 'Arab Street' 3 months before they start burning Obama effigies.

Jan. 13, Obama's picture burned in Iran and his photo run over by vehicles.

For this very reason, peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity and freedom of worship here." -- Patrick Henry, 1765
