      I thought he was british?

      He is. That's why someone commented on it. People are so afraid of saying 'black guy' that some moronic broadcaster called this British black kid 'African-American'. Stupid. I don't know any black people offended by the term 'black guy'. I've heard some say 'I'm not black'(meaning they aren't physically the color black), but then again, I've been called 'white guy' a million times, but I'm not exactly the color white either.
      I dunno. It's a huge deal in the media if someone says 'black guy' when it has to do with someone's success in a medium where there just haven't been many black participants, but it's never obsessed over when the term 'white' is used when a white guy has success in a medium where there haven't been many white participants - the only example I can think of is Eminem. Why must everyone in the media say 'African-American', when 'white guy' is perfectly fine?
      Hell, Lewis Hamilton is no more African than I am German.
      I dunno. I just don't get the drama.

      Formula One racing mixed with a historic location is a recipe guaranteed to pull in not just fans, but famous fans at that. We caught up with just a handful who were at Indianapolis to enjoy a thrilling US Grand Prix weekend…

      A Formula One virgin at Indy was R&B superstar and multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning producer and songwriter Pharrell Williams, who cruised between the paddock and the Paddock Club to get an in-depth taste of what Grand Prix racing is all about. “How did I first get to know about Formula One? I was dating some girl who used to date guys from F1. I got interested by the stories she told. Then this kid Lewis Hamilton comes along and turns this sport upside down by breaking a record every time he gets into his car, so I decided to get in contact with him - and that’s why I am here. And boy, this is quite something! I thought that I would be given a beer in a brown paper bag and a hot dog and be seated somewhere in a grandstand - I had no idea that I was going to face high gastronomy! The beef I was served was the best I have ever eaten - better than Kobe beef. In fact this cow must have been massaged with body lotion. And then the grid! Talking to Lewis minutes before the race starts - watching him get ready for his battle. And the race - adrenalin from a distance, thinking you are in the ca, hoping that you can make a difference by wishing that your favourite will win. Of course that’s foolish, but the excitement really gets you into this. This weekend really got me hooked.”

      glad to see he came away with a fine appreciation for seasoned coochie and beef....

      Report in the news this morning says he might be moving out of the UK to avoid the massive press interest.

      From what I understand, he still lives with his folks. Time to get a nice little modest flat... in Monaco.

      Someone was saying a black person would get upset if they were called black.
      I don't know any person who would be upset to be called black or a white person to be called white.

      I'll tell you something, his race only seems to be of interest in the US.
      Over here in the UK, they mentioned he was the first black guy in F1 at the start of the season, and then it's never been mentioned or brought up again. Perhaps we're more enlightened on this side of the pond!
      I couldn't give two hoots what his racial ancestry is, he's bloody brilliant! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      I read on the F1 site that Pharrell had heard about him and wanted to be friends, seems cool enough, It said he was really excited about seeing an F1 race for the first time. I bet he had good seats.
