Obama's Asian Sister
No, not Sista. Actually, Barack (I know him as Barry) has an maternal Asian half-sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng. As we know Barack's mother remarried to a Indonesian man in 1966 and thus had a sister who Barack grew up with in Hawaii. Not sure why the Asian sister fact has not gotten a lot of press but Maya has an interview in Issue #57 of the latest Giant Robot magazine (Pop Culture with an Asian flavor) with the Barack cover (portrait done by my brah, David Choe). Anyways she is a high school teacher in Hawaii and comments on life with Obama. I never knew she existed. Support Brown Power! Check it out!
