Just too funny!! Reminds me of Theresa Heinz Kerry, the other white African American.

Poor guy most likely said it innocently and honestly, too. Just didn’t know about the race Gestapo keeping an eye out for people like him.

I see a lot of headlines here at FR but that might be one of the funniest.

When the left doesn’t like your thinking they don’t celebrate diversity, they try to bully you into silence.

Does that mean blacks aren’t American?

On the other side of the coin I recently heard a black Nigerian who has never left Africa be referred to as “African-American”. When it comes to the nonsense of PC and conventional wisdom it’s better to laugh than cry.

Reminds me of the young black school girl who gave a speech about "Malcolm the Tenth".... Ask any of these racist morons to take an educated guess at what percentage of the population of South Africa is "African-American" and get ready to explode in laughter.

Free health care is a fundamental right. Then there's free love, free choice, free association, free press. But... not... free thought or expression...

He blew it. If he/she were a transsexual, this would be a slam dunk case.

He is more African-American than 99% of American blacks (how many were born and raised in Africa?)

This is malignant Political Correctness run amok. I hope when the flesh eating lawyers are done, he owns the med school.

You can bet hate crimes won’t apply to him no matter how many times his tires are slashed.

So does he. He’s been bald a long time. Phil Spector has a huge collection of wigs (though I doubt he’ll be getting to carry them to prison).

When hyphenated labels started popping up like weeds, I knew then that it was a stupid, pointless exercise. I guess some people just can’t be happy with being an “American”.

Take a genetics class in any USA medical school.

You will be instructed that the mitochondrial DNA of every American can be traced to Africa.

during a class cultural exercise

That's what a medical school gets for conducting a cultural exercise.

I read a newspaper article which described a British subject, a resident of Jamaica, as an “African American”. I also have in my possession a hardbound book, written by a college professor and published by a University press, which contains the sentence : “He [Richard Wright, the famous author] felt pride when he learned that the ancient Egyptians were African American”. Just mull over that sentence for awhile...
