What box should Gov. Nikki Haley check when it comes to her race?
The South Carolina Democratic Party tried Thursday to make Haley out as a liar for checking "white" as her race on her 2001 Lexington County voter registration application.
But the application had no specific option for "Indian." Her options were "white, black/African-American, Asian, Hispanic, Native American or other."
The governor stayed silent on the matter, although her allies accused the Democrats of the lowest-grade politics: race-baiting.
As I recall from the movie, Gahdhi was considered "colored" in South Africa. As I recall from some social science course I took, East Indians are of the "caucasoid" group.
Then again, I'm not really interested in what color someone's skin is. Without trying to sound too melodramatic, I'm more interested in the color of someone's soul.
