Tonight is the night of the President’s state of the Union Address, so here is a question for the ages.
If President Obama’s father is black and his mother is white then one half of his lineage can be traced back through black ancestors while the other half of his lineage can be traced back through an equal number of white ancestors so…Why is President Obama a black man? Isn’t he also a white man?
Unless of course “race” as we really define it, simply is about the color of one’s skin and goes absolutely no deeper than that. And what does color define other than appearance?
“I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
I do hope that day gets here someday soon. How about you?
