Black Or White?

This election year has brought up an old question:

If a man who is half black is a black man, does that mean that a man who is half white is a white man?


Just wondered!

I believe there is a way to determine this.

If the man's grandmother is a typical white person then he is a black man. Otherwise, he is a white man.

At least that's how I understand it. Of course I'm not sure if I'm a typical white person so I don't know if I'm entitled to an opinion.

The man is whatever he claims at the moment of opportunity.

Daisy,
Does that mean that he could be a typical white person even though he's only half white?

You guys are really starting to confuse me now but here's another question: If a black rhinoceros mates with a white rhinoceros, what color is the offspring?

Is the maternal grandmother a typical white rhinoceros?

It matters little if one is half-white or half-black, as long as they are true blue.

A black rhino and white rhino?? White is recessive so in all likelihood you get black.

Now if you cross a conservative rhino with a liberal rhino what do you get? I'm thinking they can't interbreed. Hubby thinks a mule.
