In her copyrighted 1985 thesis for her B.A. degree in Sociology, "Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community," Obama wrote about her social relationship to Whites on campus.
"Regardless of the circumstances underwhich I interact with Whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be Black first and a student second.
"These experiences have made it apparent to me that the path I have chosen to follow by attending Princeton will likely lead to my further integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant."
People's perceptions can change over time due to their circumstances. I would like to ask her how she feels now.
