Whoever that woman is, if she is a political analyst, then she was just noting a simple fact.
If you are going to complain about someone saying mentioning colour, then you should also complain when someone says Obama is the first black president.
Such a polemicist.

It was the manner in which it was said. I said that I thought that was the objection. I didn't find the overall gist of her statement offensive. Also, as you know, I wasn't objecting to multi ethnicity.

Fox is always making these coded racial references. Bill is saying "traditional America" these days for "white America."
