Funny, but I can relate. It happens to me here in China. Well, I wouldn’t say it’s 100% because I’m a black American, or simply American. However, I’m sure race plays a factor. Wondering if my Caucasian American expat friends received the same praise through the years, as it is indeed fair to say that out of the few black Americans who has run for president in the past, only ONE has won. So I reckon that’s why the praise is to the extreme at times. Though this is comedy, there’s some reality to it for sure.
