this is off topic but i have always wondered what caused the breakdown between jews and blacks and their alliance. is it bc jews were able to assimilate?

He's white. 

i have a professor who looks like him.
he said he was black and we were like......errrrm?
ben def. could have passed that color line in the past
but meh.
he doesn't want to be identified even as biracial bc he thinks its disingenuous to the racial history of the US and embroils himself in black politics and issues that me as a fully colored individual will not do.
do you brother.
some of my line sisters are that fair. am i now supposed to discount their experiences bc of their skin despite being raised by at least one black parent and in a black community?

I just think it's...umm....odd....to have him represent our advancement when he looks like....that.

It's not odd to me that this man considers himself "Black"... not odd at all

Benjamin Jealous is no different than Obama in this regard. He is mixed, but identities as Black. He married a Black woman, and he has Black kids.

The only thing I feel "some type of way" about is the consistent need for NAACP to have light and damn near White leaders

WTH is up with that?
