CELEBRITY FRIDAY: 25 Years Ago, NYT Noted "First Black Elected To Head Harvard's Law Review"

25 years ago today the New YorkTimes ran an article about Barack Obama, the first African-American elected to head Harvard's Law Review. Interestingly, in the very first paragraph they mention he was born in Hawaii and the races of his father and mother.

Obama is neither black nor African American. He's not black because he's mixed, mulatto or biracial. He's as much white as he is black. And he's not African American because African Americans are the descendants or Africans enslaved and brought to America and he's not that.
