Why Do I Feel So White and Blue?

Althea Gibson is a black hero because she was the first black chick to win the US Open, and she had to quit playing tennis because she lived in Harlem and didn't have much money and had to find a job.

I got invited to play flag football this Saturday for a team who is short one guy, but i had to decline because I have to work.

Yet even in this day in age, I cannot be considered an African-American hero. And why? Because of the color of my skin.
