RGIII,Tiger,Obama are the main examples they use as not being "black" enough.
i am told constantly by other African Americans that i am not "black" because i'm not as stereotypical as they are.
that's one of the issues with seeing things in terms of race instead of in terms of being a person.
Exactly and I get the exact thing. They said that I wasn't black or I am a fake. COme on don't judge.

Of course I am a white guy but that wasn't the point and this was when I was into EPMD, Slick Rick, 3rd Bass (now those were some brothers!) and NWA. They were all judging me and ****.
