    1893-1955 An African American Civil Right leader. Aided by his fair skin, he made on-the-spot investigations of lynchings and race riots and conducted a vigorous, sustained drive for enactment of a federal antilynching law. In 1918, when he joined the NAACP staff, 67 persons, all but 4 of them blacks, were lynched. In the year of his death, 1955, there were only three recorded lynchings, and none had occurred in the five previous years. Lynchings had become a rarity and were soon to disappear from the American scene.

    He was a major player in the Harlem Renaissance and White’s writings include two fictionalized accounts of a Southern lynching: The Fire in the Flint (1924) and Rope and F***got: A Biography of Judge Lynch (1929). His autobiography, A Man Called White, was published in 1948.

    He reminds me of that Creole guy from the OJ documentary who looked white.

    That ain’t Heisenberg.

    I thought TS was doing that gay thing where you include middle names in thread title to be cute and original.

    PS. Walter Francis White is the whitest name I’ve ever seen in my life.

    He is regarded as African-American. Rachael Dolezal comes to mind.

    Sean King has many features that lend credence to his AA heritage. Walter F. White was blonde haired and blue eyed.

    Yet, still an African American. Both his parents were born into slavery.

    Off the record. I find that hard to believe. I know wikipedia says that but in his book he claims his parents were so white they were treated as white people until people servicing them found out their true race. I dunno. Not trying to be a hater but genetics just don't work like that.

    He technically was of mixed race (like almost all Americans), and his parents were relatively light skinned. There are always statistical outliers in genetics, too.

    These are all 100% DNA tested siblings with the same parents. Some people get more genetic material from certain areas of the gene pool. Just like you see siblings who vary a great deal in height sometimes.

    Oh yeah, not hating but....... hairstyles and facial hair that are stereotypical of a particular ethnic group can be persuasive.

    Excellent fucking research. I wish I could give you more than a like for your thoroughness.

    I'll be honest about Shaun King, I kind of feel bad for the guy. He has said he believes his mother had an affair with a black man, and people at his high school have said was beat up a few times. Was it for being black or being a white guy trying to "be black"? His whole family is sketchy, and seem reluctant to talk about his claims. I think he may actually be of mixed race, but who knows..... He gets shit from both black and white people, but that's more a result of his very outspoken, polarizing political views.

    Sounds like he had a challenging up bringing. I left communist Poland when I was 5 and didn't see my dad for 20 years. I never got beat up in school so I can't imagine his pain.

    That's rough. The importance of having a 'dad' in the household seems to be overlooked by a lot of people these days.

    I'm actually of mostly polish ancestry, always thought about taking a trip there.

    You need to. I moved back in 2016 for a year to teach English and fell in love with it again.

    He is so full of shit. I'm amazed he's allowed to get away with it while Rachel Delozeal got hung out to dry.
