|Subject: ||RE: Hall, Meb and Abdi to run 2013 Boston Marathon|
...to the other response about East Africans. There are numerous posts debating whether or not people feel that these guys are "American" enough.
I didn't say that Meb or Abdi aren't American. But "East African" is not a nationality but a geographic. Just because they moved somewhere else and they got a different passport doesn't mean they aren't "East African" anymore.
They are "East African American", if you will. ;)
