I'm with MST. Mr. Crowther's comments on Obama's race are extremely problematic and pretty off-putting. They signal a reductive understanding of race at best. "Obama is a mild-mannered white attorney with a slight genetic handicap." Irony? Not really seeing it in this context. In this article, Crowther is clearly stating that Obama is not culturally black. But why/how does Crowther get to make this call? Problematic! This is such an enormously problematic position.
