Troy Nicholas Tucker's insight:

I look at her and I see an incredibly well made woman who's "Race" is "Human". How about you? By measure of the "one drop" rule she would be considered "Black". I don't think so.....

I equate the "slave mentality" in America with excess smoking, drinking or drug abuse. Everyone knows the causes, reasons, affects, consequences, history, proponents and critics. And yet, we just KEEP DOING IT!

Troy Nicholas Tucker's insight:

And here we see again how the "slave mentality" is still so ingrained in our society that we don't even know how to begin having a real discussion about how to change it. I haven't seen this movie yet, but from what I've heard, it sounds like a mashup of all of the same tired cliches, beliefs and attitudes about the history and relationships between "Blacks" and "whites" in this country, created by a man who I do actually respect for the MASTERY of the craft itself.

The "Slave Mentality" is alive and well in America!

The "Slave Mentality" is alive and well in America! | Bi-racial classifications and stereotypes in America | Scoop.it
Troy Nicholas Tucker's insight:

This graphic has been attributed to the conservative party, you know, the one's who don't have a "racist" bone in their bodies!

But I say that Barack Obama himself is just as much to blame because of his validation of the "one drop rule" by portraying himself as a Black man.

In a country where "race" should no longer be an issue, we have a President that refuses to acknowledge that his "White" mother clearly repudiates his claim to "Blackness". And yet because of continuing prejudism, racism, stupidity and extreme apathy, the "one drop" rule, a foundational pillar for the fictional institution of "Race" is upheld. 

No wonder these images continue......

The 'Loving vs. Virginia' case (the 'Loving' case) was the historic 1967 case that led to the U.S. Supreme Court declaring that "all of the 'anti-miscegenation' laws found throughout the entire United States -- AS WELL AS the racist-'One-Drop Rule',
upon which many of these laws were based --- were in fact UN-Constitutional!

So why do we still cling to this nonsense?
