Osama Bin-Laden is a White Man

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Osama Bin-Laden is a white man. Yes, I know he has a ruddy brown complexion and is darker than many black people, but according to none other than the United States Government, he is a white man.

We can even do a color test between Barack Obama and Bin-Laden to see who has darker pigmentation, but that doesn’t matter, it’s Bin-Laden who is classified as being melanin-challenged.

How is this possible? How can Bin-Laden be a white man, you ask? He is from Saudi Arabia, which is in the Middle East, and what we consider the Middle East is really, for the most part in Western Asia. This makes him Asian and Arab and brown. Ah, but he is the wrong kind of Asian, and the wrong kind of brown, and since Arabs (like Indians and Pakistanis) are biologically Caucasian, he’s now a white guy.

But wait, our color-blind, let a man be judged by his character rather than the color of his skin government has a different idea. This is pulled directly off the United States Government Census website:

White. A person having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. It includes people who indicate their race as “White” or report entries such as Irish, German, Italian, Lebanese, Near Easterner, Arab, or Polish.

Right, a Swedish-American has many of the same traits as, let’s say a Libyan.

Wait…that means Colonel Moammar Khadafy is also a white guy! Conan O’Brien, Bin-Laden and Khadafy – all white guys!

The more we classify and separate each other, the farther we grow apart. The more we mention race and ethnicity it doesn’t heal, it separates. I am refusing to answer the “Race” section on next year’s census. I am an American, I don’t need a hyphen.
