Just thinking outloud.......

I received a book today that I had won a couple of weeks ago, The American Journey of Barack Obama. I haven't read it all yet but I did spend several minutes looking through it and it's very interesting. My comment is this, and it's not something that just came to mind, I've thought it for some time - why all the hoopla about the first black president? Mr. Obama is half black and half white. The last time I checked half and half meant two EQUAL parts, right, so he's just as much white as he is black. Yes, he looks black and he's married to a black woman but he's still half white. And not that it makes any difference, but yes, I did vote for him and not because of his color.
