The ultra subjectivity of post modernism

Hey, if you wanna be black, that's okay even though your skin is white.  That ain't no such thing as race, says Abdul Jabbar.

The only thing that matters is that she's on the team.

The thing about race is that, scientifically, there is no such thing. As far back as 1950, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) released the conclusions of an international group of anthropologists, geneticists, sociologists, and psychologists that stated that the concept of race was not a scientific entity but a myth.

Oh, yeah.  If you are white and you are in the wrong place, you can always say that race is a myth.  That would have helped Reginald Denny in the LA Riots back in the nineties.  Yeah, right.  But what was a factor in the riots?  A video tape of a white officer beating a black guy.  Race was a just something in their imaginations, I suppose.

Oh, yeah.  If you and your spouse are white, then a baby is born black, there's no problem.  Nothing to see here.

True is false, and false is true.  Welcome to post modern America.

 Maybe it isn't subjective.  Maybe it is just flat out lying your ass off.  That's okay as long as it helps the team.
