Why do we call 'em black, why they dont call 'em white. In case you haven't noticed a 'black' person has 2 black parents and a 'white person' has 2 white parents a mixed raced person has 1 of each. so why is it so easy for lots of you to totally disregard the white parent like they don't exist. why not disregard the black parent. Why cant we call Obama black and be confortable to call Hamilton white or other way round.
