Bi-racial comedian Bill Posley grew up happily identifying as both black and white. But at age 10, he learned that the world does, indeed, judge a book by its color. Despite being half white, he’s labeled 100% black. Does a young comedian have to get rid of his whiteness in order to be the color he’s “supposed” to be? Hear Posley weigh in on the modern-day conversation about race from a unique and humorous perspective.
