Pamela Merritt Challenges the "Blackness" Police

Blogger Pamela Merritt challenges perceptions (from other Blacks) about what "Black" is supposed to mean. Love her response. Idiots like the ones she is addressing annoy the hell out of me. Worst than flies at a good barbecue.

Can we just flush the term and concept of "Blackness" down the toilet once and for all? Blacks aren't a monolith, and as such, there can be no one term to describe them.

This is why I am annoyed when someone tries to put me into a box, especially a racial one.


Hear an interview with Pamela Merritt from NPR.
