"Grey Like Me" by Ken Shade

I know it has been a while since I have written. Life has gotten complicated and tangled, but it is the usual to be expected; working overtime till all hours, the few minutes I do get I spend sleeping or escaping with my friends or my fiancée. Life has been good, but tiring and sometimes frustrating. This, however, is not why I am blogging.

Over at the Faulking Truth, writer Ken Shade has been putting up articles about a new reality TV show called "Black. White." If you are unaware of it, it is a show where a black family and a white family get together, living under one roof, and put on makeup to look like they are the other color. I was skeptical, but hopeful, when I heard about it. I'm not sure if I should be disappointed or pleased by what I have seen of it.

The show is up to episode five, and I will be watching it shortly. Ken is writing it as a white man who married into a black family, and is a widowed father of three children struggling to raise them in a racially inept world. He has written articles about the first four. His insights are astounding. I recommend reading them.
