what difference does it make? people constantly acknowledging race in this manner is part of what keeps racism alive. if Hollywood, the media, and people would stop obsessing over something that doesn't mean crap, maybe, just maybe there would be just a little less hate.
First, thanks for responding. No, it does not matter in the least to me. Unfortunately, people are taught by the media and it keeps racism alive. And until America in particular is willing to have a serious conversation about racism it can never end.
America says "if you have 'a drop' of negro blood" you are considered negro! What? Then ALL are negro! This is historical, but America still goes by that rule! If you "look" as though you are from African descent, you are labeled! No - "if the mother is free so is the child" is not the "rule" of America! Obama knew this and that is why he classified himself as African-American.
