aka: How to Tell the Southerners in the Room from the Yankees -
One of the women at work objects to Obama being called the First Black President. 'He's not black! He's mixed! And he was raised by white people!' She keeps insisting. Which is true, he's biracial, and he was raised by his white family, not that the second makes him white, but whatever. (She, by the by, is a Yankee)
I, politically correct genius that I am, say, 'Well, can he pass?' - and this is where you know where everyone was raised. The Southerners just say, 'No.' The Yankees (mostly) go 'Pass what?'
