One of my roomates from back in college is black. He was raised in the hood, but was constantly made fun of for "acting white." He got a basketball scholarship to Kent, and his father worked his ass off to pay the rest of the tuition. He got into DU on a basketball scholarship. His fiance is white. Now he's a big shot financial accountant in Toronto.
I did get pissed off at him once when I brought home KFC and he ate all of it before I had a chance to get any - in a purely racist, stereotypical sort of way, that was the "blackest" thing I ever saw him do. But he's got a pretty good life now, and it's mostly from "acting white" (as per Mr. Parker).
I always told him he kinda reminded me of Tiger Woods:
