Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant since 2011, is now African American. In fact, if you so desire, he’s a brother.

I should’t have been so surprised, as we live in a world that allows, accepts, and in my case, embraces and loves those who decide to change the gender to which they were assigned at birth.
But changing your race or ethnicity? In my lifetime, only Michael Jackson has managed to pull that off, changing from black to werewolf to Prince to Puerto Rican before finally morphing into full-fledged blanco over the course of about 10 years.
