Where do we legally or socially stand on the one drop of blood colors the person?


We call Obama the Black President, but being half black, and half white parent wise how did we make that determination. Or does skin color trump DNA. The one drop of blood was the standard in the South, but is that still true now, and it is true for the entire country? How do we really know how many drops of each he has? And remember it is the government that wants to now your gender, race, color etc.

    Why should the government need this information?

    So far they haven't used it for any benefit to the country?

    with all the mixes in people today there is no point having people Pick which box to check. Is it going 2b used to discriminate 1 ovr another

    Interesting answer to this question. And that is why, I think the government is discriminatory when it requires gender, race, and ethnicity for their check boxes.
