"Another excerpt involves her in the 1960's chastizing a journalist on calling her black. She says: "I am not black I am colored!". . .Was this behavior the result of her upbringing in St. louis?. . ."
Roxie, if I recall right, Josephine Baker was not black; she was mixed. Nothing was wrong with her.

There's something wrong with us, not her.
