One Drop Rule? No Thanks! In our race obsessed country, I have recently noticed more and more discussions about that infamous One Drop Rule for whatever reason on the various blogs. Passing is still quite relevant evidently and some of the now obsolete terms that accompanied certain percentages of Negro blood. lol. I still say let people call themselves what they want to be called regardless of appearance. Back in the day, Hollywood’s famous Bennett sisters had no use for ‘one drop’ or anything that came with it. They successfully ignored their African roots.
