Question for debate: Is Obama the first African-American president? I say he isn't. He is half black and half white. Here in Missouri, in which the Missouri Electoral College votes went for McCain, our grading scale is that anything under 60% is an F. Since Obama is fifty percent black, he fails to be African-American. By the way, if this topic is closed, I'll take that as an unconditional concedement that president Obama is not African-American.

It isn't about genetics, sir, it's about socialization.

This nation sees him as black, just as it sees everyone who is born to one white and one black parent as black.

Beyond that, the question serves no purpose.

And that's all I have to say, since this topic will assuredly be closed and you will be delivered a well-deserved strike.
