Race in America - Obama's Census Form Choice

President Obama on his census form checked says: "Black, African Am., or Negro," the Associated Press reported.

A good article from the LA Times that discusses this issue:
Obama's census-form choice: 'Black' - The president keeps it simple, but his decision stirs discussion about identity among mixed-race Americans.

Should President Obama have checked White as well to show his mixed race heritage?

What would have the reaction been then?

The issue of mixed race in the US is complicated.
