09:32 AM ET 09.14 | One day in mid-August, while Kris Humphries was having lunch in Malibu, Calif., with his business manager, Josh Ketroser, a fan walked up to one of the newest members of the Celtics and mistook him for Clippers star power forward Blake Griffin. Humphries relayed the story to Griffin the next time he saw him at the L.A. Clippers' practice facility. As it turns out, the confusion happens quite a bit for both players. "I came in the gym and I was like, 'Blake, someone thought I was you,' " Humphries told ESPN.com. "And he's like, 'Yeah, yeah, the same thing happens to me all the time.' It's just funny because sometimes someone will come up to me and be like, 'Blake, blah blah blah.' And I'm like, 'I'm not him.' And they think I'm being a d--- because of it. I feel bad. I'm like, 'I hope this person doesn't think it was actually Blake and I'm not trying to talk to him.' But I don't think we look alike at all. I mean, we're about the same size, the same build."

Good point and I "NEVER" could figure that one out!!!! Obama has a white mother and a black dad. Why isn't he considered the first "biracial" President???

And to bring it closer to home..er sports, Tiger Woods is considered to be 'black' even though he is probably 50% Asian. He has a mixture of other ethnicities so he is actually multi-racial.

EEA, good point, but we have to many prejudice people in the U.S, that just don't like certain races.!!! Hopefully one day, that will change!! I have a brother-in-law in his late 70s and he is one of the most prejudice persons I have ever seen. :-)
