One thought on “Black Americans who look like other races

  1. Thank you! Just watching the OJ doc and when Danny Bakewell started talking about being black I was like ‘this fool is kidding himself.’ I mean, maybe he looked blacker at one point, but his lived experience can’t the same as the average black person.
