Issues of race is alive and well in the 21st century. Just when we thought it was safe from the birthers, more mess arises. A fool named Gordon Warren Epperly said Obama can't be president because he is bi-racial. And he's so serious about this, he has filed a lawsuit!
The Grio has the silly story:
His lawsuit states:Child please, this fool is so wrong on the 14th amendment and he's in Alaska. Alaska, where there are plenty of mixed race people. I hope somebody is watching this Gordon Warren Epperly person. He seems to be completely off his rocker.
Barack Hussein Obama II, a.k.a. Barack Hussein Obama, a.ka. Barack H. Obama has the race status of being a "mulatto." Barack Obama's father (Barack Hussein Obama I) was a full blood Negro being born Nyang'oma Kogelo, Nyanza Province, Kenya and raised in the Colony of Kenya. Barack Obama's mother (Stanley Ann Dunham) was a white Caucasian woman being born in Wichita, Kansas on November 29, 1942 and raised in the state of Washington and in the state of Hawaii.The petition concludes:
As stated above, for an Individual to be a candidate for the office of president of the United States, the candidate must meet the qualifications set forth in the United States Constitution and one of those qualifications is that the Candidate shall be a "natural born citizen" of the United States. As Barack Hussein Obama II is of the "mulatto" race, his status of citizenship is founded upon the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Before the [purported] ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the race of "Negro" or "mulatto" had no standing to be citizens of the United States under the United States Constitution.
