    Obama's mum was WHITE, and his father BLACK,
    he shares 50/50 genes.
    Therefore he cannot be called the first ' black president' in any way that he can be called the first ' white president'.
    Therefore, i declare he is the 44th white president of the USA.
    Why do you not accept he is mixed race, and neither white nor black?
    is it because white society thinks he is watered down
    my argument has very strong premise.
    HE IS BOTH BLACK AND WHITE, AND IN EQUAL PROPORTION AS WELL GENETICALLY, THEREFORE, YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO CALL HIM BLACK, NOR WHITE. HE IS THE FIRST MIXED RACE, OF BLACK AND WHITE PARENTAGE.

    He's the first Muslim president though. Well according to a large proportion of thick Americans anyway.

    And this clear fact has been eluding you for the the first 2 years of Obama's presidency? My thoughts and condolences are with your parents for conceiving such a fool.

    By the logic you just used he isn't the 44th white president either. :facepalm2:
    And using caps does not strengthen your argument, just in case you thought it did.

    I didn't think it was a very strong argument until I saw that you had capitalised the entire last sentence, then naturally I realised that you do indeed have a very strong argument.

    Wasn't there a thread on this already today?

    Anyway, you're wrong. If he isn't the first black president, then he isn't the 44th white president either.
