Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well the USA isn't post racial, so obviously race matters, and there is a lot of sensitivity to people adopting/coopting political/racial positions.

That being said, I note that her case is being treated quite differently than many whites who identify as black. for instance, there's Shuggie Otis (wrote the song hand-jive). He says he's black, but he doesn't at all hide the fact that his parents are white.

Maybe that's the difference?
