I am not a biologist, or much of a scientist of anykind. However, I find today today's election interesting with so much being put upon the historicness of this election. I recognize that Sarah Palin would be the first female VP, if elected. But, to make so much of Barack Obama being the first African American to become president is, to say the least interesting.
Obama was birthed by a young white girl, in a white family, whose father happened to be Kenyan. It seems to me our thinkiing is somewhat skewed. Barack Obama, having a mostly white ancestry, with the characteristics of his African American father, is as much a white man as he is a black man.
Does a little "black" blood make a white person black? Are we overplaying the race card in our mixture of races? What do you think?
