America is not a white country or a black country: it is a mulatto nation. Both African and European. That is part of its strength and beauty, something Americans should be proud of no matter what their skin colour.
When Miguel Covarrubias, the Mexican illustrator, came to America in the 1920s he mixed freely with blacks and whites. He did not see America the way the white people did, as England-only-bigger. He saw it as a marriage between an old white Europe and a young black Africa. An Afro-European country, a sort of English-speaking Brazil.
He saw Mexico in the same light: it was the marriage between the white Spaniards and the brown Aztecs. Art in Mexico did not flower till people understood that and took pride in it. Before then they denied their brownness and tried to be as white as Spain. It did not work. Besides, the world already had a Spain. It needed a Mexico.
The same is true with America. What makes it something new and wonderful is its mix of black and white.
Believe me, I know that America is divided, that it is one country with two parallel worlds, one black, one white. The one you see on television is the white one. The black one shows through every now and then. No, not as Snoop Dogg or Flavor Flav, who are paid to entertain white people. I mean like Rodney King, Katrina, Reverend Wright and even Michelle Obama. That parallel world.
The division between blacks and whites could easily last for a thousand years. It has already lasted a third of that. But if you step back and look at American history you can see that the division, the racism, has been getting weaker and weaker in the long run. Both blacks and whites think of themselves as Americans and they both believe, somewhere in their souls, that all men are created equal. So in spite of whatever setbacks come along, the divisions will come down in the long run. It is just a matter of time. Maybe another hundred years. (Of course, keep in mind when I am writing this - just after Barack Obama won the Democratic primaries.)
Over the past 50 years blacks and whites have become more and more like each other through mutual assimilation. In time there will be no difference at all. They will no longer live in parallel worlds of black and white, but in a common mulatto world that will be known as America. No matter what their skin colour is. That is the direction America is headed in.
I know that might seem unsettling to some, maybe even unnatural somehow. That is because we live in a period of American history where skin colour still matters and racism is still strong. It draws a big dark line right down the middle of the country. A line that hopefully someday will be gone.
