What a dickhead. I'm reluctant to even go here, but the only way Ronnie might have had a point would be if Thomas had refused to go to the WH because Obama is a black man. Since that wasn't the case, I'm going with "Ronnie is a dickhead."
I know what you mean. I think it's clear that your last statement is correct.
But I always wondered this, and maybe someone could help me because I admit my ignorance. Obama has a black father and a white mother, but he's "black". Tiger Woods has a black father and an asian mother and he's "black". Zimmerman (of Trayvon Martin notoriety) has an Afro-Peruvian great grandfather, and is of mixed racial heritage, but some call him "white" and others call him "Hispanic". Adrian Gonzalez and David Ortiz are both Hispanic (or Latino....I don't know the difference between the two terms either) but clearly they have very different skin tone, etc.
PBS has a very interesting site on race here (http://www.pbs.org/r...000_00-Home.htm
). I think so often we want to use easily definable racial terms but race is a very complex thing.
Nonetheless, getting back to your point, Borges is indeed a jackass and really, why isn't his job on the line after a tweet like that?
