Long after hangings, McCarthyism and civil rights; ethnic cleansings, genocides and religious divides; years after Blacksploitation and ‘Roots,’ people are still asking each other, "What are you?" – despite history’s tale of the dark and deadly side of classification. America, the beautiful, cultural melting pot, how can you have so much room for religious freedom, colored hair, colored skin, speckled histories, different languages, traditions, cultures, foods and still leave so much room for ignorance in these very areas? Must you demand that we fit into only one (racial) box? This book contains the true stories of people who don’t fit into one box. They have spent their lives facing the burning question, “So, what are we, anyway?”… and when will these questions end? When will people begin to describe themselves as simply, human?
