If you're anything like me then you think that you know a Black person when you see one and you know a white person when you see one right? But do you? Are you sure? Are you always sure? The truth is that Black people come in so many different shades of dark and light that it's not always as easy as trusting your eyesight. You can be easily identifiably Black by being dark with kinky hair and other features but you can also be blonde haired with blue eyes with straight hair like Laurin Crosson has.
Do you think that because you have the features of a white person that you will automatically enjoy white privilege? Watch what Lairin has to say about that.
Do you think that because you can pass for being white that that would automatically be what a person would choose to be? See what Laurin has to say about that.
Do white people always accept a person who is visibly white as their own? Ask Laurin.
Would the Black community embrace a person that looks white as one of their own or would they scrutinize and write a person like that as a fraud? See what Laurin's experiences have been.
This show will be a lesson about acceptance and identification. About learning that what you see isn't always what you get. About learning how and where to fit in and be comfortable despite being different.
This is about learning how to make it against the color complexion odds from a different perspective than we are used to hearing it from.
Most of all this show will be about what being Black or white means vs how it plays out in real life.
This show is sure to please.
