    I am obviously being sarcastic.

    The girl is black... in my opinion the title is inappropriate. It should say Blackness cannot be a state of mind based on her looks. Everything about that girl with the exception of her deformity (hair coloring & skin coloring) looks like a black person.

    The article tells the girls story,but in no text does the girls state that her "blackness" is a "state of mind", she obviously knows her albinism condition and such but since she does not have melanin I can tell you she still has the immediate black parents,so the point to me is either to shed light on the condition or to contradict omowalejablis thread on "blackness is a state of mind".

    I am glad someone on this thread has the ability to interpret sarcasm and irony; literary devices most should learn about in middle school. The average Destee'er should at least have that here... from what I see most do.

    But anyway, yes, my thread is intended to do both, but to particularly contradict the notion that blackness is a state of mind as you have stated.

    To be frank, I don't see either why that article was titled as it was or why this thread was started. The girl was an albino...with two Black parents, so it is clear that she is Black. Albinism represents an atypical genetic condition....it is not an argument for or against the mentality of blackness.

    Sister Karmashines ... i almost take offense to the above.

    There is no average Destee'er ... and there is nothing least about any of us.

    The "from what i see most do" ... was a nice save ... this time.

    Funny... I consider most here to be college-educated because the writings and what people are talking about reveal that. It is typical for people who are not concerned with academics to simply not be as prolific as many here. This is my exact thought which I cannot apologize for.
