@AP who cares if he/she was mixed race? Why include that detail?—

Why, indeed? Media outlets pushed out the Associated Press report and all focused on “mixed-race” in their headlines.
Disgusted Twitter users call them out.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the loved ones of Essie Mae Washington-Williams. A person. Whose life should not be qualified with “mixed-race” upon her passing.
Shame on you, AP.
