"Cain would be this nation's first African-American president"
If this is true, then the African-American article needs to be changed, because Obama does fit the definition given there. Or does the editor mean that Cain would be the nation's first real black president? (See here for one interpretation of the difference between African American and Black American.) --AaronT 20:42, 19 October 2011 (EDT)
- The truth is Obama is the first bi-racial president. I see your point if half black qualifies him as African-American and not Caucasian American. Cain would be the first president having both of his parents from African descent.--Jpatt 22:06, 19 October 2011 (EDT)
- And Cain's wife would be the second African American First Lady.--Jpatt 22:09, 19 October 2011 (EDT)
"Mutt or purebred?"
You didn't just compare a human being's ethnic/cultural/racial backgrounds to dog breeding, did you? "Pure" race is an idea that doesn't really have a lot of traction these days. ScottDG 22:27, 19 October 2011 (EDT)
- JPatt, did you really just use the words "Mutt" and "Purebred"? You sicken me. RexBanner 22:44, 19 October 2011 (EDT)
