Response to TreasonousBastard (Original post)

4. Something of nothing

Colorism and deep dive genetics are probably best not discussed at DU. That's an interior discussion amongst black Americans.

Take African American out of it - and insert Being Black In America.

How you EXPERIENCE America is what defines you.

I've only had ONE blatantly bigoted experience with a black woman - and that was in 1991. But you know what - it wasn't 'blatant'. Bernadette was a 23 year old woman from South Africa who had never been in close quarters with white people -

Let alone a black person whose mother was white. A week later my dad came up to visit me and she was like - Oh my GOD! I had no idea. (Racism or the RESULT of Apartheid? I say the result).

Kamala has experienced America as a black woman.

White folks (not you OP but in particular trump's spawn) don't get to all of a sudden strip the One Drop Rule when it suits them.

That is precisely what the little piece of shit attempted to do.

Birthers can fuck off and die.
