When is someone "black enough"

Apparently Obama isn't America's first black President, that honour still lies somewhere in the future since no less a person than civil rights leader the Reverend Jesse Jackson has pointed out Obama "isn't black enough"

To make matter worse there is speculation that he should really be called O'bama and there is a touch of the Irish in there somewhere on the white side of his family!

Never mind, everyone knows that before Daniel Craig was given the role there was a serious search for a black actor to play James Bond, Beyonce is being tipped to become the first black Wonder Woman in the Marvel Comics remake and the BBC are reportedly considering whether the next Dr.Who will also be black. The person I feel sorry for in all this is my son and heir, Edward. As a white, heterosexual, middle class male he has absolutely nothing going for him. At least his sister is a woman so she does have that one thing going for her. I of course am the ultimate PC hate figure, white, late 40's, heterosexual, grammar school educated, property owning, male. However at least I'm not a member of that institutionally racist organisation, the Labour Party!
