I admire Ms. Lena Horne. It was very insulting, painful, and degrading for fair-skinned Blacks to "pass" for white. At the same time, during
those disturbing times, Black people were going
in black-faced "performances".

Lena Horne had talent but she played the race-card like a compulsive gambler to suit her spoiled needs.Rest in peace Lena you need it.
