I guess being colored doesn't make me not like
The same things other folks like who are other races
African Americans during this time period were taught to believe that their skin color made them not fully “human”
Langston ingrains a bit of this psyche into the person in question, who upon a moment of self reflection- realizes that skin color doesn’t factor into personal tastes.
