    With much respect and gratitude for your post, the man is neither "random" or "black."  The "dude" to whom you refer  is born of a woman born in the U.S., therefore a citizen, and a citizen of Kenya but he is not even "Kenyan-American" to you.  I love you, but think for a minute.  I agree but don't pander.  He is not random but special.  The white people chose him, white people rose him, but the man IS NOT RANDOM.  YMMV.

      And was elected President in 2008.  As far as Presidential material goes, that is random.

      And he is most certainly black.

      And the fact that white people "chose" and "rose" him is kind of the point I'm trying to make.

      There is truth on all sides. The question is how much.
