This question demonstrates the sheer madness that is the multi-racial state. Real nations shouldn't and don't have to deal with this.
WorkingTitle, could you tell me how tall you are?
Is it just the angle or are the buttons positioned differently on WorkingTitle's suit in comparison to Opoika's at the top of the page? They both look very nice. I'm getting something of a Dior vibe from WorkingTitle's. It would be interesting to know when we're looking at deviations from the house style, even if it's just a minor thing such as length. Both of the above jackets look normal length, rather than the shorter look which Jason often does.

As for the question, I believe that we're talking about aggregates here, or averages, when it comes to what constitutes 'acting White' and 'acting Black'.

Ezra Klein said this: ''Obama's finest speeches do not excite. They do not inform. They don't even really inspire. They elevate. They enmesh you in a grander moment, as if history has stopped flowing passively by, and, just for an instant, contracted around you, made you aware of its presence, and your role in it. He is not the Word made flesh, but the triumph of word over flesh, over color, over despair.'' This is REALLY creepy stuff.

Let them have their racially exclusive meetings. Just don't let them hear about yours.
Those unlined ties have a sort of slightly uneven appearance. Is this a feature of unlined ties and considered a desirable quality?
