“Who is Black?” with Soledad O’Brien

It seems that anybody who can get a few mixed race people together who look white, black and in between and get them to talk on camera then voila you have a show on CNN about what it means to be black in America or just look not black.

Many of the anecdotes rang true especially for my kids, my sister and my cousin and often for myself. Especially people, usually black people, asking you what are you over and over again.  This is due in part because in their minds you don’t look black and they are not really ready to accept you as black.

This also happened in a big way to my sister who has a different mother but same biological father.  More later
