Colin in Black and White

Colin, in Black and White “Colin in Black and White” is a series made in just six episodes. I watched the whole thing and really did enjoy it.

Passing

2021-10-31T13:33:15+00:00October 31st, 2021|

Passing, the Movie I heard about “passing” a long time ago. It’s when a light-skin toned Black person “passes” as White to assume the position in society of a member of the White population. It’s a phrase and persona from our time in history when slavery existed. It was a rough time. To pass as White meant to pass as free. I thought it was over when people tried to exist as Multiracial, not making them choose to be one race or another. Passing as white in the 21st-century is [...]
