You Are What You Is

Quite the unbelievable story this: man discovers he’s black at age 26:

When the baby born to two white parents came out black, the secret became a lie. Throughout his childhood, David Myers was told that his skin color was a disease called melanism. He was lucky, his mother said, because the skin discoloration was all over his body, instead of just splotches of brown like most people had.

    This is a very sad tale of deceit and dysfunction.

    I know it’s true because that USED to be my
    middle name (deceit/dysfunction).

    Now my middle name is ennui. That’s MISTER ennui to you.
