    The most common rule used in the United States for defining a black person was the "one drop rule." A person with any known ancestor that was black was considered to be black. Given that most states prohibited "inter-racial" marriage until after WWII and that some, including Virginia, maintained such laws until several years after Obama's birth, the definition has a long legal history. In 1967, the Supreme Court finally ruled that anti-miscegenation laws were un-Constitutional, overturning Virginia's law which applied the one drop rule. I guess that's what happens when you allow a bunch on Liberals to be appointed to the court.

I guess mulatto is not considered acceptable, personally I like the word "zebra" but I'm sure that is not acceptable either, I'd be just as happy to hear him refered to as white as black. What would be great if they just refered to him as Barack or as Mr President, without reference to his color. Bud
    I saw a funny one yesterday. The Scottish government sent him congrats and invited him to come and visit his homeland. The article states that Obama is directly descended from a Scottish nobleman. I don't have time to hunt that article this morning but it is out there on the AP.

    Well, just for the sake of argument (and I'm out the door so I won't be here to participate ):

    There are 105 dogs starting the Open today. Can you tell me which ones are black and which ones are yellow???

    Unless you are a regular FT participant, I'll bet you can't.

    Too bad we can't view people like we do our dogs. THAT would be "keeping color out of it."

    AKC did a whole election candidate pole on Obama dogs and Biden dogs. In addition they also did an intro to possible McCain dogs...he does own a Yorkie apparently.

    Anyhow---I think they should get a rescue poodle...that is my 2cents worth. Here is the link if anyone is interested.

    It is far easier to spit on the work of others than it is to produce something better yourself.
