I received a note from a Mr. Mustin in California noting that I left out a "great" in front of the bloodline of Sen. Obama's father. My thanks for his sharp-eyed notice.
That led to a rewrite of the paragraph to make the concept easier to communicate. It now reads:
"Mr. Obama is 50% Caucasian, that from his mother. What those who want Mr. Obama to write history by becoming "America's first African-American president" ignore is that his father was ethnically Arabic, with only 1 relative ethnically African Negro - a maternal great-grandparent (Sen. Obama's great-great grandparent, thus the 6.25% ethnic contribution to the senator's ethnic composition.).
"That means that Mr. Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother's side. He is 43.75% Arabic, and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side.
"Put another way, his father could honestly claim African-American ethnic classification. He was the last generation able to do so.
"Sen. Obama could honestly say, "My father was African-American." Racist presumptions led an Ivy League admissions committee, and lazy "newspapers of record" factcheckers, to presume that if his father is African-American, then Sen. Obama must be African-American also.
"But it doesn't work that way. Racist presumptions coupled with sloppy vetting don't turn a lie into the truth.
"Sen. Obama is one generation too far removed from the ethnic African Negro input to make the same claim as his father, Harvard's Admission's stamp of approval notwithstanding.
"As you can see for yourself, Sen. Obama's African-American ethnic claim, when properly researched and documented, is a lie."
My thanks to you for helping proof this critically important research. The post that follows contains this corrected information.
