15. her thesis is pretty silly
If, to be "black" in America you have to be the descendant of slaves, wouldn't that mean that in order to be "white" you'd have to be the descendant of American slaveowners? That anyone who is the descendant of immigrants who came to this country after the Emancipation Proclamation has a different "culture" and "experience" than "white" Americans, just as she claims that because Obama's father immigrated here after slavery had ended, Obama has a different "culture" and "experience" from "black" Americans?

Kinda goofy.
