In Response To: Mother Henriette Delille ()

Another example of the one drop rule perniciously in action -- Homer Plessy was another.
He also was of 1/8 African and 7/8 European ancestry -- enough indeed for both of them, in their life times to be "colored"; but both very light reflecting their predominently European ancestry ---- can't we celebrate both?
