Rising


"Sir - I'm puzzled. If Barack Obama's mother was a white American (Ann Dunham) and his father a Kenyan (also known as Barack Obama), why is he persistently referred to as black (for example in John O'Sullivan's comment piece in Issue 865)? The Swahili have an apt term for what Obama actually is, namely 'nusu-nusu' (half-half). But to do my part in redressing the balance, henceforth I will be arguing around the dinner table that he is white." - letters to the editor
