The problem with your lineup, Ted, is that in the melting pot of the
United States, people who had certain physical attributes could be
trapped and brought back into slavery and sexual subordination; those
who could pass--did. Hence white males; and hence women and black
people and people of color--there were very few John Griffins who sought
to pass in the other direction. Try it, you won't like it. And yet we do
not ask you to step down, we are just stepping up next to you.
