Usually, I'd blow off Erin Aubrey Kaplan. But this op-ed may be a step up for her. --AJP
"But putting aside the question of whether Obama is in a position to do much of anything, can principles of assimilation and black unity coexist at the top? Can they coexist at all? The big unstated fear among many blacks, including West, is that Obama will turn out to be yet another disappointing black politician, one who readily articulates the needs of those at the bottom but doesn't ultimately address them. That's a crisis of another color."

"Paul Henry, a presenter on TVNZ's Breakfast show, made the comment on Monday when he was asking Prime Minister John Key who he was going to choose to replace outgoing governor-general, Sir Anand Satyanand - who was born and raised in NZ by Fijian Indian parents.
"'Is he even a New Zealander?' Henry asked Mr Key, who replied that every governor general since Sir Arthur Porritt, who was appointed in 1967, had been born in NZ."

"When and how geographic boundaries became so foundational in forming personal identities I am not entirely sure, but what I do know is that our current digital age is allowing for borders to crumble, as people in the world become more aware of each other. The fact that some Mongolians post right-wing propaganda videos on YouTube also means that some Mongolians have access via the Internet to a bigger picture, and, as a matter of course, to a greater perspective of the planet as a whole. This is one major difference between the context of the emerging pseudo-Nazism in Mongolia (as well as of other nations with burgeoning hyper-nationalist factions) and that of Nazi Germany. Now, collectively, we are more informed, and with enough concern for our fellow human beings, we may avoid repeating some of the deadly mistakes of the past."
