Not Trading This One In

This is a story that just keeps coming up and probably will keep popping up until the first Asian American president is elected.

Barack Obama made history as the first African-American president but in his first 100 days he has also shown himself to be America’s most Asian leader yet, community members say…

 “In a nutshell, he has done more in 100 days than the last administration has done in eight years,” said Representative Mike Honda, who heads the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus.

I will give them that, but still the man is black.  Let’s not do any racial recruitments because remember what happened last year when we had to disabuse someone else of their false sense of  racial inclusion?  Yeah, no repeats of that.

But it was pretty cool when he threw out his greeting to a South Korean student.

And, yeah, he might be able to speak a bit of Indonesian.

So, y’all need to fall back.  If you need to claim someone black we can let you have Chris Henry or William Jefferson, he’s been a racial nomad for a few months.

But if Obama should make any major faux pas, we’ll talk.
