Good news! All the problems of the world have apparently been solved, so The Washington Post can now focus on the stuff that really matters to the American people:

For some, that headline was decidedly provocative:

Note: WaPo’s Cillizza is not “on the right.”

Now, to be fair, Cillizza was only trying to draw attention to a recent Pew poll:

As Cillizza writes:

According to data in a fascinating new Pew Research Center study, a majority of Americans describe the President as “mixed race” while just more than a quarter (27 percent) call him “black.”

While whites and Hispanics are far more likely to describe Obama as “mixed race”, a strong majority of African Americans see him as black. And, black voters voted in historically large numbers for Obama. He won 93 percent of the African American vote in 2012 and 95 percent among that group in 2008. (John Kerry won 88 percent of the black vote in 2004; Al Gore won 90 percent in 2000.)

Just to be safe, Cillizza eventually decided to amend the headline to assuage the offended:

But what’s offensive about his piece isn’t that he’s questioning President Obama’s blackness (he isn’t); it’s that he thinks an asinine poll about race is more newsworthy than the Obama administration unraveling before our very eyes.

If we have to be subjected to B.S. polls, at least make them entertaining and/or relevant. Like this:
