black americans are a multi-racial group that took on the name "black" in the 70's a form of affirmation.
it does not mean that black americans have not mixed with white people in past generations.
the question should not be, "why do blacks consider obama black" but "why don't whites consider him white" or even more important "when will racial categories cease to exist."

@sarasa,
people in the united states would be just as surprised at lebanon's obsession with knowing and categorizing people by their religion.
Good post, Frau!

Terrence Howard is a pretty rotten person.

His own brother pulled him off of her. (The brother had followed Terrence to her house.)

When Chris Brown beat up Rihanna last year, Howard publicly dismissed domestic abuse as normal.

EDIT: I missed the post where Mandatory discovered this through the powers of google. But I'll leave the post here, because I want people to know what a POS this guy is.

I never liked Terrence Howard. Even before I knew about the assault situation, I always thought he looked like he would knock you into another dimension, if you made him angry. I know there is no such thing as the "look" of an abuser, but honestly, I was not surprised when the charges were brought against him.

There's just something about him...
