Debra Dickerson is a columnist for Salon.com and author.
Debra knows blackness. Most people think they know blackness, but Debra, Debra knows blackness. She even wrote a book, The End of Blackness, because she knows it so well, she even knows how it's going to end!
What is Blackness?Edit
Debra knows blackness when she sees it. Most people look as a person's skin color to see blackness, but not Debra. Debra can see blackness in the content of someone's character.
That's how much better at seeing blackness Debra is than everyone else.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would have to agree with Debra about what blackness is. In fact, he would probably have had to ask Debra's mother (or grandmother) to make sure he knew what blackness is, because, quite frankly, even he really didn't know what it is since he lived in the days when people said "colored" so, there's that.
What is Whiteness Then?Edit
Debra is such a brilliant scholar on blackness she doesn't know what whiteness is.
And, as everyone knows, Dr. Colbert doesn't see color, and is never really sure what color others see him as, until he is pulled over by the police or goes to the bank to get a loan.
And for the record, Dr. Colbert is against the end of blackness, despite not being able to see it.
Would Miss Dickerson Support A Black Man For President?Edit
Perhaps, but he would certainly have to be an African-American in order for her to support him for president as the first African-American and not an African-African-American, like Barack Hussein Obama, although, if Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton were to enslave him, he might gain enough slave-cred in order to be black enough for Miss Dickerson to recognize.
As it is, Obama is merely "nouveau black", which is as black as circumstances allow. But, that does not turn Miss Dickerson off Obama, she is very proud of her late-to-the-scene, adopted red-headed step brother.
