I watch once a man struggled hard to describe and intruder. The police asked him several questions. yes, the man is tall, the man has bushy hair, wide face, skinny looking etc. The most important part of the man was his colour. The was black. The victim was a white person trying to be politically correct and was too afraid to use the term blackman. I never could understand why you cannot use the most memorable part of a persons physical appearance to describe the person.
I am a black man. I call my wife a white woman sometimes because she is white. she has referred to me as a black man thousands of times because I am a black man. We are married for 27 years.
