Perhaps it's because one of the gentlemen I'm going to comment on (Harry Belafonte) has West Indian roots, as are some of mine; growing up, Calypso and Afro-Cuban music were integral to my cultural development. Perhaps it's because the other gentleman I'm going to comment on (Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan), Belafonte and I are all members of that mysterious "lost race" of "light skinned" Black people to whom the superficially-focused frequently refer, but which has yet to be rediscovered on the Dark Continent.
Once again, it's only because of our mendacious and seditious media that Belafonte's recent comments (calling our president "the greatest terrorist in the world" and speaking of our nation as though it was an apartheid state before supporters of socialist Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez) and Black Entertainment Television's (BET) honoring Farrakhan as their 2005 "Person of the Year" receive the level of coverage they do.

Communist Harry Belafonte SHOULD BE drop-kicked to Cuba.

"...(Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan), Belafonte and I are all members of that mysterious "lost race" of "light skinned"...
..........determined by how many white grandfathers one has as to whether Farrakhan or Belafonte or any others are mulatto, half-breed, octoroon, quadroon.
I don't think there is any mystery about it as now there are many mixed marriages. The appellation of "light skinned" is a way of showing or gaining importance for these men.

Louis Farrakhan said he was "Jesus Christ" so I choose to completely ignore him. I did not read the article.

[...] determined by how many white grandfathers one has as to whether Farrakhan or Belafonte or any others are mulatto, half-breed, octoroon, quadroon [...]
or in Harry's and Louis' cases, maroon and poltroon.
