Entry Description: Long after hangings, McCarthyism and civil rights; ethnic cleansings, genocides and
religious divides; people are still asking, "What are you?" – despite history’ s tale of the dark and deadly side of classification. America, the cultural melting pot, how can you have so much room for religious freedom, colored skin, different languages, cultures, foods and
still leave so much room for ignorance in these very areas? Must you demand that we fit into one
race box, when so many of us belong in two?
This photo essay contains the true stories of people who don’ t fit into one box.
