Black People : Hypothetically

Hypothetically speaking, what if Barack Obama had married a white women? He is half white.
Which half of him is white? Feet, elbows, and legs?

Already been accused of being "not black enough." Do you think this would change your opinion of him?
Opinion in reference to what?

How do you think the news reporters would handle this situation?
These "news reporters" you speak of, are they white people or non-white people?

Would the black community be backing him so hard?
Where is this so-called black community? Can you point to it on a map? How do you know when you are in it? Ort above it? Or away from it? Or under it? Is this so-called black community anywhere there is a liquor store? Or a church? Or houses with bars on the windows? Is this so-called black community anywhere there are projects? Or gun stores? What are you talking about?

Black Community / Black America
by Calvin O. L. Henry
December 28, 1995
The Black Community is Black America. Members of Black America are citizens of the United States of America. Also they are citizens of the states, counties, cities and municipalities in which they reside. The Black Community is a concept that goes far beyond the color of one's skin. It is the experience of being Black in the United States. The Black Community is a society whose culture is waiting to be re-defined. This definition or concept is not designed to ignore other Blacks in the Americas, but to evolve the strength and power of Blacks as citizens of the United States of America. Too often Blacks in the United States function as if they are not citizens.

What Is Black Community?
By Terri J. Haynes November 28, 2012

A scholarly survey of how African Americans struggled for a community identity before the Civil War — and how it affects us today.

Depending on whom you ask, the question of what most defines the African American community varies. Some will point to strides made toward racial integration. Others will point to the establishment of our own culture, traditions, and institutions that distinguish us from other races. And depending on whom you engage in this debate, most will admit, there are significant cultural and class divisions among African Americans. Creating a sense of community among African Americans is challenging, but imagine attempting this when the prevalent identifier was slavery.

In his book A Nation Within A Nation: Organizing African American Communities Before the Civil War, scholar John Ernest offers an insightful view of how African Americans to establish their identities before the civil war. This is a unique view since most accounts of this time in history focus on how the Civil War changed our status and sense of community. Ernest presents a view of the oft-overlooked organizations that were pushing for the establishment of an African American community well before the Emancipation Proclamation.

Ernest, a professor of American literature at West Virginia University, presents a historical account of how five types of social organizations — the church, Masonic lodges, conventions, schools, and the media/press — got their start. He traces how each attempted to meet the unique needs of the African American community
