You are the best brother a sister could ask for, a loving and caring son, husband, and father. Robinson and his sister are so close that, without his seal of approval, the Obamas might not even have gotten married.

Robinson is also a gifted athlete with an Ivy League education whose resume would be impressive even if it weren't for his famous sister and brother-in-law.

Gene was the first to not only divorce his wife in favor of his boyfriend, but he and his wife went back to the church where they were married and did their own made up 'Divorce Liturgy' in which they solemnly released one another from their sacred vows.
