Yesterday morning an area black man was accused of failing to act sufficiently black. “You are not acting black,” said his accuser, a fellow black man. “You are acting in a way which is different from and contrary to the way a black person acts,” he added, “leading me to question if in some way you are not actually a black person at all, but rather some sort of non-back person who only appears to be black in the most superficial of ways.”
