Let's be specific... this article is making his race a topic of discussion. It suggests interracial relationships are not as binding as those between folks of the same race. I reject this racist ideology and will remind the readers that many of you and Dakota are the result of an interracial relationship and are no worse in our course of life for that consummation. How his interracial component affected his demeanor, personality and upbringing can not be measured and so it can not be considered relevantly positive or negative to those factors in his life. We as human beings are capable of establishing deep and meaningful relationships with one another without factoring racial likeness. To suggest otherwise is utter bigotry.
