(Jan. 15, 2010)  — On Jan. 12 the Pew Research Center released the results of a telephone survey loaded with questions about how black Americans see themselves.  One of the questions concerned how they see Barack Hussein Obama, and it appears most blacks do not see Obama’s lily-white mother at all.

So far as the preponderance of available evidence indicates, Barack Obama is actually mulatto, which my Funk & Wagnalls Standard Desk Dictionary defines in its first definition as: “A person having one white and one Negro parent.”  The white parent does not count, though, in the minds of most black Americans, according to the the findings of Pew  Research Center’s poll.

Question 63 in the Pew Center survey asked, “Do you mostly think of Obama as a black person or mostly as a person of mixed race?”  That is a pretty stark, simple choice.  Here is the Pew Center’s account of their findings:

Racially speaking, who is Barack Obama?

It depends on whom you ask. Offered a choice, most blacks (55%) say Obama is black, while about a third (34%) say he is mixed race. Among whites, the pattern is reversed. Most (53%) say he is mixed race, while just a quarter (24%) say he is black. Hispanics are even more inclined than whites to see him as mixed race; 61% do so.

For the propaganda purposes of the political left, Obama’s racial identity has been sufficiently black to use the club of “racism” to beat down many challenges to Obama’s eligibility for the presidency.   And Obama is routinely described as African-American, although he is actually Kenyan-American, which is very different from the traditional meaning of African-American in American political discourse.

The fact is that Barack Obama is not eligible to be president, not because of his race, but because he is not a natural born citizen of the United States, and his continued tenure in office is a shame and disgrace to our nation.
