InVijay Chokalingam, the brother of Indian-American entertainer Mindy Kalingtold CNN that he had pretended to be black years before in order to take advantage of affirmative action to be admitted into medical school. Her attempt at passing was in order to gain the support of the black community.

Passing by book

Recommends it for: those facing their own ambiguities Recommended to Jaidee by: a lovely friend 5 "astute, biting, theatrical" stars!! Just imagine what Irene must be feeling. Irene recalls Clare's difficult childhood and cunning temperament, but is most preoccupied with a recent meeting between Clare and herself that had taken place two years before, in Chicago.

New York, NY: Norton. The gathering is interrupted by Jack, who accuses Clare of being a "damned dirty nigger! For example, during Irene's attempt to pass to become an elite white woman at Drayton hotel, she makes a clear distinction between herself and working-class individuals by showing her desire to be separated from the "sweating masses".

And the fact that racial division is what has trapped her and Clare in this awful situation in the first place? Those who were able to pass as white often engaged in tactical passing or passing as white in order to get a job, go to school, or to travel.

She also denied various claims made by her daughter about her life, including having lived in Africa when young, although the parents did live there for a time after Dolezal had left home.

This left them both bereft, vulnerable, mistrusting and every move was not only for survival but to usurp the other for a bigger piece of the societal pie. Yet Irene's discomfort intensified--and took on a new form--when it occured to her that Brian and Clare could be carrying on an affair. Two years later, Irene realizes she is not the only one who is susceptible to Clare's charms.

Two families, one black and one white, shared a home in the San Fernando Valley for the majority of the show. Upon being commissioned in the United States Navyhis racial identity is revealed. Some fictional exploration coalesced around the figure of the "tragic mulatta", a woman whose future is compromised by her being mixed race and able to pass for white.

2. That's Irene's dilemma in this book. She thinks about all the ways she could get rid of the other woman, Clare—including telling Clare's white, racist husband that she is actually a black woman passing as white. And all because she thinks Clare might be having an affair with her husband. Eek.
