”, Lynn comes down with a case of the biracial blues.

The episode, which originally aired in February 2008, might well have been a reference to the 2008 presidential contest and conversations regarding the racial identity of candidate Barrack Obama. With her music career in full swing, Lynn has landed a record deal with Dirty Girl Records.
