One Drop Black

One of my closest friends in college who was African-American often told me about the one drop rule, though he did not use those exact words.

hmph. hadn’t heard this one but that’s annoying. i had an argument with someone whose African-American friend told her how great America is because the top golfer (i.e. Tiger Woods) is black and the top rapper (at the time Eminem) is white. i corrected her and said TW was half asian. it got kind of ugly. someone had to step in.

and what “exact words” did your friend from college use?

Good thing someone stepped in. 🙂

I don’t remember his “exact words” but I am sure they were nice ones. 🙂
