I’m writing a short story and I have done a bit of research on the actual civil rights movement, but I don’t want for any part(s) of my short story to be offensive, or any of my information to be incorrect or bias.
Questions towards African Americans:
1) After the movement (approx 5 years after), did you feel as though you were losing a part of your identity (referring to you ":blackness": (don’t mean any offense by that term)), and becoming more ":white": when it came to traditions, communicating, etc.?
2) Although the movement had ended, was there still much racism targeted towards your racial group? Please give me an idea of the degree of it)
3) How would you feel if you and your spouse had given birth to an albino child? How do you think the child would have felt if they were born in approx. 1972?
1) What would the reaction have been if there was a black couple with a seemingly fully white child roaming the street in around 1972?
2) Do you feel as though there was pressure on African Americans to conform to the typical ":American": traditions and cultures, losing their own in the process?
Please give me as much information as you can apart from the ones asked as well. Thanks a kazillion.
Many black people actually willingly gave up their identities while seeking to fight discrimination. They began dressing like the white people, and abiding by ":white": standards of beauty – e.g. believing that smaller lips are more beautiful. Many actually became ashamed of their skin color and found the word ":black": to be offensive. That’s when the whitening products began to hit the market. They also began taking up the ":white": culture.
