From: A Nigerian Teenager Living In Virginia [Email him]
You are racist and ignorant and I'm sad that the American ideals of acceptance and tolerance don't apply to you.
And you are an uncheerful, hateful, and not a word of niceness or respect. And since when is English the official language of our (and the Native Americans) great country?

That's what happened with the emails from this young man. Googling his real name, which I have suppressed above because of his youth, I discover that he's Nigerian-American, may have actually been born in the US, goes to good schools in Virginia, and has an iPhone.
His thinking, such as it is, is 100 percent conventionally liberal. And that makes him, given 20 years or so, a possible 54th President. He'll be at least as qualified as Obama was.
