Thanks to Barack Obama, America is finally facing the long-standing reality that it
is a multi-racial country. Not only that there are many people of
different races, ethnicities, tribes and religions in the population. But
that there is an increasing number in the population of people who are
themselves of mixed background. It is already impossible to get an
accurate count on the census or accurate evidence on college
applications. So God bless America.

A few days ago I posted a Spine alluding to an article in the New York
Times Magazine
by which dealt with the subject.

In today's Times there another incisive piece, this one by Mireya Navarro,
dwelling on the predicaments and possibilities of being, like
increasing millions of other America, being multi-racial. This is, I am
sure, a happy reality.
