> [Python] from_pandas reads 'str' type as binary Arrow data with Python 2

> Using Python 2, converting Pandas with 'str' data to Arrow results in Arrow 
> data of binary type, even if the user supplies type information.  conversion 
> of 'unicode' type works to create Arrow data of string types.  For example
> {code}
> In [25]: pa.Array.from_pandas(pd.Series(['a'])).type
> Out[25]: DataType(binary)
> In [26]: pa.Array.from_pandas(pd.Series(['a']), type=pa.string()).type
> Out[26]: DataType(binary)
> In [27]: pa.Array.from_pandas(pd.Series([u'a'])).type
> Out[27]: DataType(string)
> {code}
