(a)Traditional we all have been taught to look at people with straight hair, light skin or pinkish skin as synonymous with people who call themselves white.

(b)And we subconsciously have been trained to see people with dark, brown and some with light skin e.g (Ethiopians, Somali's,Tswana) and with Kinky to almost straight hair to be black.
Now if you want to determine who is white do you go to people looking like those in (a) to ask them are you white or do you go to (b) or do yu ask all of them.

If you ask all of them, persons in (a) and (b) does it mean that if a person in (b) says he is white even though he is of a darker hue, he therefore becomes white.

If persons in (b) can't be white, explain why and if he can, explain why.

If a person in (a) says he is not white, but racists/white supremacists classify him as white, do we treat him as white.

You could at least have squirrel sense about it. Do you know what a squirrel is?

A squirrel decides at a time and/or place of their own choosing, based on whatever history or other evidence they may have, whether a person will harm them...and then they act accordingly.

Non-white people have a piece of code that is counter-racist at its base that is called VGQ.

THE LOGIC is that you decide at a time and/or place of your own choosing, based on whatever history or other evidence you may have, whether a person will harm you...and then they act accordingly. Any white person you deem as able to practice racism (white supremacy) is a racist suspect.
