Linux Now this is one to ponder. This year, the Nobel Peace Prize went to Barack Obama, president of the United States. The prize has been given to both politicians and non-politicians alike, and Keith Lofstrom thinks its time to hand over the Peace Prize to a non-politician once more: Linus Torvalds.

I did feel that real Afro-Americans have multiple generations of residency in the states ! And descend from the people who were unfortunately taken as slaves long long ago.

But - upon studying the below link, I think I'm half way to change my mind :

http://genealogy.about.com/od/aframertrees/p/barack_obama.htm

After reading that I guess I can agree he might be called of African-American descent. But his mother was "White" / Caucasian ! So, he is really as much white as "black", but now this is way offtopic ...... :-P Sorry. And Afro-Americans have Afros !!! :-P
