Race is not just the complexion one has on the outside. In other words, it is not the skin color only. It is also a spiritual sentiment (feeling) on the inside of a person.

Many people call themselves "black"; or they may look black, but they are not black at all.

What makes it distasteful is that they try very hard to behave as black people; and I personally detest that kind of what I call, "a deceitful attitude".

The image of a black person should be that of Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, Bill Cosby, Oprah Winfrey, Gil Noble, James Earl Jones, President and Michelle Obama, Halle Berry; and many, many more. 

It (image) is surely not that of Jay Z or Beyonce.

What can be seen as "race pretense" has been going on a lot in America today. 

To be a true African-American is something that is felt on the innermost part of a black person; in his or her heart.

P.S. The reason for this hub is that Jay-Z has appeared in the news lately, about his new album, marriage, etc. He, however, represents only himself and nobody else.
