I've noticed several people in the posts regarding the race and heritage of Obama saying things to the effect of, "he uses his black swagger" and "when he needs the black vote he's all streets" and "when he needs the white vote he uses his white presence and flaunts his white family to his white supporters." What is the difference? If you are an intelligent and articulate person that is who you are b/c of how you were raised and whether or not you decided to take advantage of the education that you were offered and visa versa is true. So why do people make it seem as if you can "act white" or "act black." You can only act as the man or woman you are meant to be.

MrsTGray, I hope that wasn't directed at me b/c I personally don't believe that you can "act white" or "act black" and if you read my entire post you would see that I believe that one can only be the man or the woman that he/she truly is. What I want to know is how the people who do see the supposed "difference" in his actions come to the conclusion that he is portraying one race or another?
