“But as long as we in the West place on color the value that we do, we make it impossible for the great unwashed to consolidate themselves according to any other principle. Color is not a human or a personal reality; it is a political reality.”
Baldwin muss be a dunce. In White Societies, it is all about color, he can't wish it away. This Nigerian lady was telling me about her sister(i met dem all), she referred to her as the black one. That is not racist.
With people like you around, we will never be rid of the color distinction. Baldwin's recognition and presenting the issue for what it is makes him a genius. Your words on this forum have convinced us that you're more of a dunce than Baldwin could ever be.
