    How come we pick and choose who is black and who isn't?

    Obama is a biracial man, but we claim him as a black man.

    Black people claimed Tiger Woods, until he married a white woman.

    These are just examples

    We seem to do this a lot. If you deny it you're lying.

    Why do we do it? Is there a Black club somewhere where you are admitted and then your membership is revoked without notice?

    In my Opinion "BLACK" is a State of Mind / Consciousness let alone a Self Identity...

    Therefore membership in this "BLACK" club can only be obtained by the individual who identifies her/him self as Black or has a BLACK ( original ) state of mind / consciousness..

    Peace.. Peace..

    Some people will dispute that and say, Obama is not black because his mama is white.

    Obama said he was african american(to him and others that included bi/multiracials) so...yeah back americans claimed him
    they claimed tiger until he said he was cablanesian(sp?) and distanced himself from black folks even his own black family

    black people will claim anyone...a misfit that doesn't quite fit in any category, a non-black w/ one speck of otherness, anybody w/ a nice tan or non-black folks who pretend to like us
    but the minute you start acting crazy lol like associating w/ more whites than blacks or acting like a human chameleon...it's over!

    and from what I've seen they don't claim the mixed race individuals but we do and then ostracize them later on for something crazy...

    We do it because we so divided and yet to find ourselves who we are
    we will claim aim and shoot down whom ever don't fit in to our/their likings
    other folkz only claim within themselves , and yes it's part of our confusion
    mix-up or mental state of mind .

    I think a blackman is seen differently in more ways then one
