Authentically Black

Rupert Murdoch opined the other day that he was looking forward to a “real” black president in the White House, implying that the current occupant, Barack Obama, was not. Obviously, shame on him. However, we black americans do culture shaming every day, saying that someone is not “black enough” or in my case, as a former host on WBAI radio, I was told that my programming selections were “too white”. To paraphrase Malcolm X, as long as you are south of the Canadian border, you are authentically black!
