Truest statement of the week II

If I'm lucky enough to have children, I won't tell them that Barack Obama was America’s first black president. As a black man who plans to eventually start a family with my white girlfriend, I'm going to tell them that Obama was the first man of color in the White House and that America’s 44th president was biracial.

--  Clinton Yates, "Barack Obama: Let’s not forget that he’s America’s first bi-racial president" (Washington Post).
