21. This assumes that the "black experience" is limited to a very narrow stereotype assumed by some

whites who havenít bothered to actually know more than a handful of people of color. We donít all come from the south. We didnít all grow up victims of segregation.

In my own family, I am a fifth generation college graduate Ė some of my ancestors attend a college as far back as the mid-1800s - at two of my ancestors were white officers in the Revolution. We have numerous family members from the islands and my aunt is married to an Indian-American and their children identify as just as black as we are. I have more white relatives that I can count and their children also identified as just as black as those of us who have two African-American parents.

And my experience and background or not the least bit unusual in the black community.
