Many Slavic women look like that, especially those from southeastern Europe. They're plain white.

I personally think the story of the white man who fell in love with a black woman and convinced her he was black is the best. How does one live a life as a white man and black man at the same time, have kids and everything?
 
I think a movie should be made out of it.

i have 1 more question tho

if the sole criterion for embracing literal version of ODR in 21th century is because white people, code word for god, wishes it to be so, then why arent you postulating segregation and miscegenation laws
seems to me most white folk even today would have no problem passing them

IDK the answer bu the truth of the matter is that race as a social construct falls apart under close scrutiny. Are those people posted black or white? Is Jaime Oliver black because 6 generations ago one of his great great grandfathers came from Sudan?
This one drop rule seems to me the biggest pile of crap ever, designed to increase the number of slaves without the cost of importation from Africa.

Malwina,
cuz posting that would just perpetuate the already problematic issue of ODR with other problems like segregation and miscegenation laws that stems from a long line of racism.

Lets disregard ODR but instead of being empowered some blacks since the damage still exists will swing far right to gravitate/emulate/prefer  things/people light and bright as if not only is ODR demeaning so is the one drop itself.   Folks fall victim cuz its bred through generations (ex: LS is in/DS is out) and/or its glorified/emphasized in the media.

I'm not saying all blacks fall in either/or I'm just saying it exists.  Personally, my thing is black blood is ancient, strong and associated with kings and queens.  ODR is positive - but it should not define an individual unless he/she chooses it to.

So we're just discussing the issue in this thread from different angles - folks who passed, folks who could pass, whites who lived as blacks, etc.

@ the blue bolded who da hell does that?! LOL LOL

lambkin, I see your point.  I guess the question is do you believe that folks who may have 1/4 black but look and live as a white person should be acceptable to blacks and whites?  As you say the ODR is "the biggest pile of crap ever".   I just want to be sure that I understand your take on it.
