I'm going out on a limb, with only what you have written here and the demographics of high-end wine drinking in general, that there is a 1% chance you are black. Let me in and let me know if this was right.

"To you, she is black.  To the black community, it’s a bit more nuanced."

I find this incredibly offensive. First that now you're speaking for the black community. But more shocking is as a thinking person you don't know that a black person is black no matter what others may think? There's no nuance. Hopefully your friends, whose opinion you take highly, can overcome their separatism and vote for Biden and her instead of Trump and Pence.

This is a relevant Twitter thread: https://twitter.com/owasow/status/1293314215403384832

"multiracial candidates have advantage of building coalitions with voters from other groups, but they are disadvantaged when appealing to co-racials with strong racial identities."
