Barack Makes Grandma Proud

77. Well, Fifi, everyone of those mentioned say they are black!!!! They don't own up to the white half of their parentage because some idiot told them it's more cool to be black. People can't help what color they are, I say it's cool to be proud of all that you are, not just one half. I don't care if Obama is pink, purple or green, I'm not voting for him and I'm sure not going republican, they've ruined our country with the rest of the world in the past 8 years. It's time for a woman to take over and fix this mess bush/cheney has caused.

STUPID PERIOD,. If it wasn't for BOTH their parents they wouldn't be here PERIOD (mixed folks, I mean). Both your sides make you. I respect both my sides equally. He is bi-racial, regardless. I don't care how people see him. But, in fact, shouldn't be judged based on race I will say. But, he still is mixed and I think he should embrace his both side,

Hey grandma's cookies, your comments further plants the notion that you are evil. When I say that Racists are evil, it was not in reference to your thoughts on Islam, but on your comments & ideology. Your stubborness further lets me know that OUR future's outlook is dismal at best. Just admit that your evil, and maybe we can all get some closure on the situation.

Oh, and make sure if you get pulled from your car by a mass of violent rioters and/or gang-raped, you declare "but I voted for Obama!!" I'm sure they will take that into consideration before beating you to a bloody pulp or worse.

Okay lets put this to rest. The reason Holly and Barak and some others who are of mixed race calls themselves black are because that is the race they were forced to identify with. When you look black, you are placed into that category that was white mainstreamed. For those who don't know what white mainstreamed when it comes down to race, it is known if you have 1/16th of black blood in you, you are considered black. Each of these people mention glorifies both of their races--Holly talks about her mother and her mother supports Holly as often as she can. Barak talks about his upbringing and being raised by his white side. Alicia Keys mother is always by her side. These mothers and family understands how society is quick to catergorize their child as black just because they had darker skin than their pale counterparts. Get real people, it isn't the mixed people who are trying to just be one sided, it is this racist world. Just look at you all comments on TMZ-look at TMZ propaganda against Barak. He isn't Muslim, so get over it.

She looks wonderful for her age! I'm also glad he's doing so well. This guy has a lot going for him AND he's not one of the Washington "good ole boys" like Hillary is. It's great to see a candidate who not only is book smart, but has the common sense to go along with it!

Your tears are misplaced. They should be reserved for the people who are ONLY voting for him because he IS dark.

They are the true racists.
