    What to call Obama?

    Since his dad is black and his mom is white, you can't call him black or white. So
    do we call him "blite" or "whack"?

    There is already a term, not sure why no one seems to be using it, as I hadn't heard that it had been dumped to the bin of now-racist decriptive terms.....

    And that term is "Bi-Racial". Obama is neither black, nor white, he is of mixed racial genetics. He is bi-racial, "of two races".

    How about...the only people concerned with racial labels obviously have some unresolved issues.

    Or maybe....American? I'll call myself a Italirussiagermanishutch.

    Geneologists have uncovered some Irish roots.

    So, it has to be O'Bama.

    No. Caucasian and Caucasian is still Caucasian.

    Now, if you were Dutch......West Indies and German, you might have point.

    Dutch/German is like myself, Scots/Irish. These are Nationalities, not Races.

    Well, he's not African-American unless he was born in Africa. John Kerry's wife is African-American.
