Default Re: can you identify

I had a student who, on one of those 'identify your race' forms, described herself as black. After I got to know her better I asked her why because she looked white to me. Her dad was black.

I guess I have always assumed that if you have any black...you are black or embrace it, per Obama. But of course, as you point out, this was not always so.

Remember that hideous film, Imitation of Life? Lana Turner was such a horrible actress.
