If a white-skinned person has black ancestors, can he be considered black?

If so, then can a black-skinned person who has white ancestors be considered white?

    No,

    By that logic all of us humans would

    be seen as "black" since our ancestors came

    from africa which is where humanity started.

    Every human on the planet has black ancestors but today this is undistinguished as color and deeds have taken us all far from where we once came.

    Black is the beginning of creation and out of our blood comes ALL nations.

    .

    If the person look conventional white or nearly white in appearance, he or she would usually be considered just white, but

    if he or she accept and acknowledge having few black ancestors, some people may consider him or her either mixed race

    or black. If the person look somely mixed with lesser amount of nonwhite race, he or she would specifically be considered

    mostly white mixed. A dark skinned black person with few white ancestors would generally be considered only black race.

    Only according to people who believe in the "one-drop-rule" bullcrap.

    If a blonde has blackhaired ancestry, can (s)he be considered blackhaired?

    If someone with bloodtype A has ancestors with bloodtype B, can you give him/her a bloodtransfusion with type B?

    Obama is as genetically 'white' as he is 'black' but he is considered the first 'black' President. 

    It seems that whatever other people think you are most makes you whatever that is. 

    I find the entire thing to be stupid.

    No, you idiot.

    .

    By that logic people could claim whatever race they are.
