Adventures in One Drop Rule Land

Today's post is an illustration of what would happen if we applied the One Drop Rule to everything.

1)This is a red rose.

This is a white rose.

This is a red rose. You thought it was pink? Sorry. In One Drop Rule land this is a red rose.

2)This is a Labrador Retriever.

This is a German Shepherd.

This is a Labrador Retriever. Or is it a German Shepherd. I don't know which would be the equivalent of "black" but for the sake of this post we'll say the Lab is the negro and therefore this is a Lab. Never mind the differences. It's a Lab because the One Drop Rule says so.

3)This is a black cow.

This is a white cow.

This is a black cow. Never mind the white on it. It's a black cow.
