In Nigeria we will say he is Half cast. Half kenyan and Half White American

In America he will be called African American.

He is American in every way, He never grew up with his kenyan father so he has American values and as such he aint African, Wonder why the celebration in Africa, as far as even declaring holidays becos of him, men, we need help in this continent.

Obama is African American. He is half Kenyan, half American.

I could call him akata but then he is not a real akata because he is African

Dude, if he wasn't American, he wouldn't be the president elect.

Question: is he white American, black America, or Mulatto?

Now that an akata has been elected the president of the most popular superpower in the world, not by affirmative action but by merit, can Nigerians now conduct a free and fair election to elect a Nigerian (not a Martian, not an akata, not an oyibo, not a Chinese, not an Indian) as president? Bros, no be beans!

All dis Naija pipo wey too dey make noise - "we are the best", "we are better than AAs", yadayadayada - solve una problem una no gree, na to dey yab anoda pipo una sabi do. Abeg make we hear word bo.

@post

why should their be a distinction,because he has been elected as a president?? pls lets move on from all these obama african or american,as far as i am concerned obama is just another outstanding african american male who has broken a barrier same as i think of oprah winfrey and the african american inventors e.t.c only an individual or a group of people with sel esteem issues will see the need for obama to identify with their group as a pick me up,as far as i am concerned africans will still be hard working,resilient,go getters e.t.c with or without obama being african or being the president, especially as obama being president will not make any dramatic change that y'all are expecting, for instance

theres no chance in hell that obama will make the agricultural rebate more fair or abolish it as what it is evil

Now that Obama is more popular than Coke, I don't see those ethnic bigots, who relish denigrating African-Americans, calling him Akata!

As far as those loons are concerned an Akata cannot be a high-achiever; maybe being the US president isn't a major accomplishment!

obama is american with a kenyan father. the fact he was raised for the most part by his mother's side means he has little connection to his kenyan roots.

I agree with @enroe on the part of Obama being "half-cast". Obama is, by race, half-African, half-American for the reasons given by @enroe. However, technically, by citizenship, he is an American. But at heart, he is African.
