56. This made me cry as I thought about the hell my nieces & nephews went through....
"For mixed people, blackness is not accepted as a fact of existence but something negotiable, a question of membership to which those whom are Truly Black may grant you access. This gives the game away of course, the reality of race as an invention, if one we have no choice but to live with."

We all know how mean children can be to those who they perceive as "different", but a grown ass, supposedly intelligent man like should know all this. Being biracial can be hell if you're not well equipped to deal with it. For folks like West, you're not black enough. For some whites, you're too black, and you spend a good deal of your life wondering where you fit in. I hope more people of import take on Dr. West, and make him feel the shame he obviously hasn't felt up to now.
