Consider a mulatto kid, bounced all around various family members and countrys, more than likely hit with the "Who's your daddy?" accusation, (maybe even "Who's your mama?").
THAT particular brand of identity crisis is (imo) what drove the kid to become articulate (Books have always been the gateway to/for the imagination and dreams)
So it is natural zero would be a nutless literate.
He's not Kenyen, African, Indonesian and certainly not American
He has no culture, no history of continuity and ...
They're untouchable, but I'd like a dna match to those kids.
I guess it would be easy enough to get a sample, I doubt anyone is policing his garbage when he goes out for a hamburger. If they are, he is more afraid than we thought.
