    As the "distinguished white ancestor" is the prerequisite for the President's and this child's intelligence and success. Perhaps i read that wrong, I don't know.

      My understanding is that both our President and James M. McCoy III had distinguished black and white ancestors.

      St. Augustine is one of the most, if not the most, intelligent and successful people among our civilization and, like Obama and McCoy, had black skin.  Remember hearing Descartes described as the father of modern philosophy with his: "I think, therefore I am?"  Augustine's trinity of human personality predates that by many centuries.
