The Boondocks by Aaron McGruder for November 06, 2013
Jazmine: Um, excuse me... Hi, I just moved in across the street. My name is Jazmine. What's yours? Huey: Huey. It's good to have more black people around. Jazmine: Um... Gee, um why... why would you think I was... um... black? Huey: Well first of all, Mariah, your afro is bigger than mine. Jazmine: I don't have an afro - my hair is just a little frizzy today. Huey: Angela Davis' hair was "a little frizzy." You have an afro. Jazmine: I do not!!! And who is Angela Davis??!!!

Love the Mariah Carey reference here. Jazmine needs to learn about revolutionary icons. You ARE Black alert!!

Now I understand why Huey always treats here the way he does…. First impressions you can never escape them

I can see Huey’s point, but until we stop defining each other by skin color – or hair style – the problems will remain. Of course, that wouldn’t make for much of a strip.

I have German ancestors, and a German name. Yet my skin is hispanic brown. I wonder if I can join a white supremacist movement?

sigh I know how Jazmine feels. I too have a white mother and black father and when I was growing up, I identified with the white side of my family (the side that lives in the States.) Black people want you to be black, white people want you to be white, Latinos think you know perfect Spanish because you “look” like you do.
Then I grew up and decided labels were stupid, and if you don’t like for who I am, then **** you. :)
