Look at this story in the Washington Post. You always brace yourself when the Washington Post comes out with its monthly token story on one African-American. This story is like: a black man who does not want to be black. Look at the crux of this article: "For his entire life, Mason had been determined to not be defined by race." How can you not be defined by race when everybody around you defines you by race? How can you not be defined by race in a deeply racist society?
