Looking at his face he appears to have significant American Indian and Whitey in his ancestry. Definitely not pure Afro-American if there is such a thing.

He's just as African-American as Obama is :rolleyes:

Looking at him you've determined this?

Well by golly, that means fuck all

And?

You read his Wiki entry. So?

He had been a slave, and become an abolitionist.

What's your point?

When I look at pictures of Douglass I see dignity, strength, and cool hair.

Silly O/P....

However, let me highly recommend Douglass' auto-biography...Its a fascinating synopsis of what life was like for a slave, and how a very bright young slave managed to break through.

I believe he said in his autobiography that his father was white...but the important thing is that it was a brilliantly written book...and ought to be read by every American.

He could have been a Jew in blackface

He only pretended to be black so he could pick up white chicks
