Please, show us where Obama has touted his being of mixed race. Obama took a stand and chose a side on the racial issue. Obama thinks of himself as a Black leader and not an American of mixed race. This is one of the things that irks me the most about Obama. He could have really united our country racially. Instead, Obama chose to take sides and divide us more on racial lines then I have seen since before Martin Luther King started to bring us all together.
