American First

Here’s an interesting read in which CNN discusses Obama being bi-racial and the ensuing dynamics in being identified as a black presidential candidate.

Reading this article made me think about how I’ve often struggled with my racial identity, having a white mother from Vermont and a black father from South Carolina. Even though I do identify more with being black, I also always stay true to the idea, originally taught to me by my father, that I’m American first.
