Indian or black?
The story put me in mind of this quote which I ran across on Classical Values the other day:
There are a lot of ordinary people running around who aren't white, they aren't black, they aren't Hispanic, or Asian, or anything, because they're of indeterminate racial mixes. They don't like the pressure to be members of racial groups, as they just want to be themselves. I think Barack Obama -- whether he wants to or not -- appeals to people who want to be allowed to just forget about their race.
This is the genuinely American attitude, it seems to me.
