A Clarification from Mr. Harding.

One of my unpaid staff has recently pointed out a number of Internet rumors to the effect that one of my ancestors was a person of color. I am at a loss to understand why this should be considered a mark of dishonor in any way, and had the rumormongers bothered to ask me, I should have been glad to divulge my entire genealogy. Most of my immediate ancestors were various shades from pale pinkish through brown, but my maternal grandmother was bright orange. I am proud to be her grandson, and I desire that this covert campaign of whispers should cease immediately and give way to a sincere appreciation of the grand and inspiring diversity of the American people.
