Bill deBlasio became America’s Mayor when he won 79% of the vote in the New York Mayoral race. His family is evidence of a new America reflecting the now open acceptance of interracial relationships and their celebration of the union and the children.
The effect has been more tolerance and understanding among the races. Though bi-racial people have existed in America since the founding of the nation,they have always been considered as black. In America what existed was the one drop rule which states that anyone it a drop of non white blood is considered black. It is a proven fact that Thomas Jefferson the 3rd US President is known as the founding father of the African American community.
it is widely believed that the litmus test for whether a person is racist or not is whether they will allow their child to marry outside the race, particularly their sons. Senator & former Republican candidate John McCain’s son Jack McCain who married Renee Swift a black woman in a lavish wedding in California. Our guess is that Jack and Rene both graduates of the prestigious US military academy West Point will seek higher office Renee McCain may be the US Second African American First Lady. We all remember how in the 2000 Presidential campaign McCain was leading in Republican primary when a rumor spread across South Carolina that John McCain had a black daughter, this rumor had the intended effect of him losing the state to the then Texas governor Bush.

The Speaker of the US House of Representatives in the 112th Congress Republican John Boehner known as Obama’s nemesis. Boehner’s eldest daughter Lindsay married Dominc Lakhan who is Jamaican born. Boehner is well-known for his tanned complexion which he claims he was born with. Some say it was a foreshadowing because he knew in the future he would have a grandchild with a tan.

Mitt Romney the former Republican Presidential candidate is a grandfather to adopted grandson Kieran( which means dark one) James Romneythis is significant because their foundational beliefs as Mormons used to believe that black people are the children of Cain and cursed beyond redemption. This policy in the last 30 years. Undoubtedly this adoption will alter their perceptions and hopefully make them more empathetic to the experiences of those who are black in America.
