Black and White?

I wonder what Barack Obama's mother would have thought about the current mini-flap over Saturday Night Live's use of an actor who is not black to portray her son? Mind you, I don't think she should have cared. Rather, I pose the question in response to reactions like this (Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune): "Call me crazy, but shouldn't 'Saturday Night Live's' fictional Sen. Barack Obama be played by an African-American? I find 'SNL's' choice inexplicable."
