As a subscriber to the Record-Courier, I find the Aug,. 28 article by Darlene Superville of the Associated Press ("Obama: Martin Luther King is a personal hero") offensive, and think you should peruse articles written by reporters more carefully before printing them.
First, I refer to Ms. Superville's calling the president black. He is bi-racial. To refer to him as black is an insult to his mother and her family who raised him.
Second, unless he was born in Africa, which he is not, he is not African-American. He is an American of African descent.
