as with many other things, Black people have taken something that was used as a means of exculsion and turned it on its head.

White folks enforced the one drop rule as a way to ensure discourage miscegenation, it kept Black people or even half blacks from owning property, voting, ect. and also ensured that half Blacks would have no claim to freedom.

But now that white people are seeing their birth rate decline along with there percentage of the population suddenly they see the one drop rule as a problem.

Is it because what started out as something that was meant to exclude Black people from society is now being used as something inclusive by Blacks. The evidence of Black people's inculsiveness is evident in the saying that Bill Clinton is Black (despite the fact that he probably has zero drops of Black blood and his administration put more Black people in jail than any other in History)
Update: goose- you went way out on limb there without even knowing where I live. You are wrong as hell. There is nothing but interracial couple where I live.
