Misleading myth

Invariably, references to President Obama say he is our first black president when, in fact, the correct description is that he is our first biracial president. By using the latter adjective, the media would cease being inaccurate and perhaps dishonest in their remarks as to whom he really is.

The myth of allowing him to claim being black when, indeed, he is biracial only perpetuates the distorted representations he continues to make, enabling him to further mislead the public and the country.
