    1. Which tells us a lot about Sharpton. Honesty isn't his long suit.

    2. Maybe she isn't a crazy as we think.

    There's some history involved in that. If a black person passes as white, their parent will deny any relation to them for the sake of their child's life. There was probably some expectation from Sharpton that her parents will do the same.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    What? Where does this idea that "If a black person passes as white, their parent will deny any relation to them for the sake of their child's life"?

    Wow, maybe we've been had. Makes me wonder if this whole thing wasn't orchestrated.

    She's right down Sharpton's alley. He knows frauds being one himself.

    Nope. American black. Both her parents were black as well.

    There's a long history of American blacks doing everything they can to be a "white" in appearance as possible. She's the product of that.

    Your claim does not seem likely to have been uniformly true, or even true most of the time. You'll need a link to address that.
