Whoop de doo……………

Our esteemed President filled out his census form and checked “black, African American or Negro.”  Apparently some older black people may still refer to themselves as Negro.

He also could have checked “white” since he is part white, but I guess he has seemed to forgotten that about himself.

Or, he could have checked “other” and then handwritten in what he is.

It has always bothered me that he refuses to identify with his whiteness.
