9. You are correct, sir.
America is, when you look at it, a crazy kaleidoscope of cultures and peoples, going back to before the Europeans even got here.

In our day and age, Obama comes from too many parts of our national spectrum to be easily separated into a "them" that "we" should be afraid of. They've been trying pretty hard, but it can't stick, because he has family that is black and that is white, he grew up sometimes being fed thanks to food stamps but has also become well-off because the books he wrote sold so well, and he's known Kansas and the south side of Chicago, with a little time at Harvard Law.

So you're talking about America's composition, and you make a great point.
