The words black and white are usually adjectives, not nouns, but people use them all the time to describe people of African and European descent. The first time I saw a person that was white in skin tone was during the draft of the ’60s. I was placed in a large room where young men from all over the country were sent to be inducted into the armed services. There were men there from Vermont and Maine and I tell you when their clothes came off this black man from Alabama almost died. So, help me they were white.
But white is more attitude then race. Too often, someone that feels where they were born and who they were born to makes them better than others that were not born to the same set of circumstances is white. On the other hand, too often a person that feels he or she is in a constant state of protest against the system we call the government is black.
I leave it to you: You can be black or African-American or you can be white or European, but there is a question for the people of Detroit. Have you been through enough hardship and trouble trying to keep the political gains of blacks in the ’60s to say I don’t care who is mayor if we get things working again?
