AMERICANS: You can call me Bob

Regarding what to call people who are sometimes described as black or African American (TNT, 2-4):

My ancestors came from Norway, Sweden, Germany, Ireland and England, but people call me Bob. Barack Obama’s relatives came from Kenya, Ireland and probably also places like Germany, the Netherlands and Tanzania. People should call him President Obama.

I am proud that we have multi-colored Americans whose ancestors came from all over the world.
