This is really a question of semantics that in the end, distracts from the fact that for the first time in our history, a minority has a good shot at being the next President. Who cares if he’s “Black” or an African African American. People should vote for or against Obama based on whether or not they think he can lead our country. Can he do the job? Can he lead our country? Those are the questions we need to be asking, not is he Black or Brown or Mauve.
