Best Albino

É capa do Village Voice esta semana, numa reportagem óptima. Victor Varnado é um albino negro comediante. Pérolas como as que se seguem podem ser encontradas aqui.

"I am a black albino, though, ladies. You know what I'm talking about: All the benefits of being black without the disappointed looks from your parents," he continues.

"Race and racism is so arbitrary," he says. "Sometimes people see me and they think I'm 'acting black.' Once, I was in a secondhand clothing store with one of my friends and commenting on the fashion, joking: 'I need baggy pants and long T-shirts—what rappers might wear.' And this white woman came up to me and said: 'I really find what you're saying offensive.' And then I said, 'I'm black,' and she was like, 'OK. It's fine.' Then she walked away."
