This one will get me in trouble, surely, but I don’t back down from tough questions on the basis of faux pas. And, I’m always willing to be wrong; I’m learning.
I write this after a bout of research into the antebellum south; Jim Crowe; and, more specifically, the one drop rule.
I never finished high school, or attended university, so I can be misguided in my understanding of things. If anyone asks me to remove this post, I will comply immediately; (I care about your feelings) although, I do not believe we can traverse, if we don’t converse.
One drop rule, huh
I must be racist
Because I’m bound to define you
When we should define ourselves
Individuals of our own merits
