the only reason "redefinition of who's Black " is a problem is because Democrats think they have a right to expect all "people of color " to vote for them. which is a blatant racist assumption. What every American should do when they fill out a census questionnaire or any other survey, is to make every single racial category listed. then we would finally have a chance to get past this racial scourge that has plagued our country for so many years.
