When I was a child in the 1930s, there was still the vaudeville and white men would frequently color their face black in order to play t he role of a happy-go-lucky black man since it was proverbial that black folk loved to dance and be happy, even when they were in slavery. It was definitely OK to put on the black face if one wanted to portray the good lives of black folk. We now have the case of Rachel Dolezal who works for the NAACP who has been claiming for years that she was a black person. Unfortunately, mom and dad say she is a natural born, 100% white gal. So, examine her right to be black:
1. She definitely is a “person of color.” I do believe that white is a color.
2. She has the right on her census report to declare herself whoever she is.
3. She does present a happy face, that fits vaudeville presentation of blacks.
4. She enjoys being black. After all, all have a “black mood” at one point or another.
Frankly, who gives a damn as to how people portray themselves! Oh, when Rachel is walking the street please carry a sign that indicates she is a black woman in case she wants to get herself shot by some angry cop!

NOBODY ASKED ME BUT
I suspect that Fox News had to do some twisting to prove that black kids at a pool party were a threat to cops.
In Texas, the first response to anything is to wave a gun.
I was raised in the slums of New York where only a few crazy guys carried a gun.
No one ever caught Al Capone with a weapon on him!
We are the only free nation in the world which is free about who can carry guns.
Do you ever wonder how we came to become this nation of weapons?
I did fire many weapons while in the army, but since that time have never gotten near one again.
