Last night on CNN, Larry King was talking to radio host Tavis Smiley and journalist Bob Woodward about President Obama and issues of race. “Black is in,” concluded King. From their exchange:

KING: Bob, my — in that regard, my younger son Cannon, he is eight. And he now says that he would like to be black. I’m not kidding. He said there’s a lot of advantages. Black is in. Is this a turning of the tide?

WOODWARD: Well, maybe.
