Books on Monday: Bliss Broyard’s One Drop

Bliss Broyard’s One Drop: My Father’s Hidden Life – A Story of Race and Family Secrets, is a very easy read – deceptively easy. While you read it, wheels at the base of your brain will be turning, momentously. If you believe that the differences in character between “white” people and “black” people is as intellectually shallow and infertile as the differences posited by traditionalists between men and women, you will emerge from the reading, I expect, tremendously refreshed. If not, then perhaps you’ll have the feeling of “scales falling from the eyes.” Either way, One Drop is pure revelation. 

“Race” and the Broyard Muddle.
