Overheard in the Halls, Part 1

23 Jul 2009

Overheard in the halls of Monroe Community College:

“She is the blackest white girl — I mean, the whitest black girl that I ever saw.”

Three questions immediately come to mind:

1. What does it mean to be a “black” white person?
2. What does it mean to be a “white” black person?
3. Why did this person get confused?
