According to the New York Times President Obama declared himself African American on his census form. No explanation accompanied the article but I am curious to read the online responses to this. It seems as though people (the very people who want the choice to self identify) have a huge problem with his choice. So much so, that many REFUSE to simply call him Black. So I’m sure a few people are (or will be) stewing over this reaffirmation of his identity.
