It is a terrible place when you are disciminated against... This is going to sound racist but it is not intended to! I read a book in one of my history classes many years ago and basiclly said slaves that were "high yellow" (lighter skinned) would work inside and if you were darker then you would work outside. It would seem to me that there was some class distictions between black even back then.

Dear Ebony,

I do not have high hopes, given the way Ebony treats black non-liberals, that you will review my new book, "Dear Father, Dear Son: Two Lives, Eight Hours." It is, in the end, about the importance of fathers -- and the damage done to a child who grows up without one.

Why do I know you will ignore my book despite its examination of the most important issue facing "black America"? Your magazine treats black conservatives as if they were the enemy, that they bring nothing valid to the discussion.

Ebony magazine, a monthly staple of American black life...
