For a clue on how American racial identity is evolving, it may be less
useful to look to clues like complexion, and more to the performance of
identity. The performance here — flinging around the N-word, with
the befoulment of urination — holds an answer. One potent way of being
American, no matter where you or your parents are from, is enacting
anti-blackness. And traditionally, acting out anti-blackness has meant
acting white.
