What do you mean by passing?

Reginald Culpepper
LOL.... Passing as white.
She was on stage performing before white audiences when blacks weren't allowed to watch her shows.

hmmm, not sure. I don't think she ever tried to pass as white ... at least not during these years. she would probably pass more like Hispanic-looking if anything.

EDUCATE! EDUCATE! EDUCATE!....

ok... I have read about the Legendary Ms. Horne...

MANY apologizes for my assumption that she passed... It is written she REFUSED to play any parts that were demeaning of her proud racial identity...

"I"WOULD LIKE TO USE THIS BLOG TO HELP US TO( 'MAYBE")NERVE AGAIN EVENTHINGKTHAT THE LATE, GREATLENA HORN 'TRIED TO PASS"...

BECAUSE IT IS AN INSULT TO HER TAKING HER LIFE IN HER HANDS BY ALL THE TIME FOR DEMANING 'EQUALITY FOR US AS THE HIGHEST PAID ENTERTAINERS IN THE WORLD TO BE ABLE TO SLEEP AND EAT IN THE SAME EXCULSIVE PLACES WE PERFORM IN...

1. WHEN ASKED WHY SHE MARRIED A WHITE MAN...HER WORDS
WERE, "BECAUSE HE CAN TAKE ME PLACES AS A 'BLACK PERSON I CAN NOT GO"

2. LH WAS ONCE SUED FOR THROWING HER HOT SOUP IN A WOMAN'S FACE...SHE WAS SITTING , EATING WITH SOME WHITE WOMNE...ONE WOMAN BEGAN TO TALK DOWN IN HER (TO LH) WORST (FOR HER,HER BEST) WAY TO DO IT...THAT IS BEFORE LH ANNOUNED SHE IS BLACK BY WAY OF HOT SOUP IN FACE...

SHE WAS NOT ONLY BLACK BUT ONE OF THE BLACKS WHO DON'T ACCEPT,'HER KIND' WHO BELIEVE SHE HAS BEEN ACCEPTED AS BEING TO GOOD TO BE CONSIDERED BLACK...

AND, I WOULDLIKE TO ADD THIS THAT I SAW HAPPEN ON OPRAH ONCE...THIS WHITEWOMAN WHO WHEN OPRAH WAS ALLOWING MIKES TO BE PASSED TO THEGUEST IN THE AUDANCE...THI WHITE WOMAN GOT SO CARRIED AWAY WITH DEMEANING BLACKS MALES AND FEMALES UNTIL OPRAH HAD TO INTERUPT HER BY SAYIG,"LADY I AM B-L-A-C-K!!!"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(NUP/ SMILE)
