In Response To: Anatole Broyard by Henry Louis Gates ()
I am doing some research on a story and found this article on the net. I was not familiar with the film nor person as I am from Europe. I am astonished by the assumptions and opinions. Does race matters - as long as we make it so. More and more I come to realise that in the end race does not matter. When people talk about a certain walk and more it is actually the mind which needs to put people in small cubicles and they are being racist. But in the end aren't we all racist? Or do we have to accept and not judge other people's choices. The choice was his to make only. Did he break with his sister because of her color or did he just didn't feel a connection with her. Or did he wanted to be judged for who he was...as a man not as someone part of a racial group Did he ever say...I am white. I certainly didn't get that impression.
Is it not time to think outside of the little box?
