Race Reframed

"I no white," announces Charlie as he watches Little Bear.

"No? What colour are you?" asks Betty

"I Charlie colour," says Charlie.

(To explore the paradigm shift behind this vignette, I highly recommend Learning To Be White by Thandeka, or Black Skin White Masks by Frantz Fanon if you want to be old school--but still visionary--about it.)
