If you were mugged by.....?

I'm asking this q be/c some people have an issue with saying Obama is Black. They prefer to say he is Bi Racial(which is a fact). If Obama was not a man of power, was a street thug & broke in your home.....How would you describe the man you saw in your home? Would you say he appeared to be a mid 40's biracial or mixed male or would you tell them a mid 40's black man? Be honest please & no need for harsh or derogatory comments just read what is asked & answer. Thank you!

  • However I HAVE been held up by a black man and the police don't CARE about the "biracial" they care about the COLOR of the skin. "Exactly what color was the skin" was EXACTLY what the police officer said to me.

  • I would describe him as a black male in his forties. That is why he isn't referred to as bi-racial b/c often it is about how a person looks and not what they actually are.

  • He doesn't look black to you? Are you kidding me? What the hell does he look to you? He sure doesn't look white. He couldn't even pull off the "white with a tan" thing!!

  • "I would say a lighter skinned black man with giant ears."

    LoL! That's funny to me. His ears are kinda goofy. But to answer the OP I guess I would call him a light skinned black male.
