The Color of Water by James McBride:
James, who is biracial, asks the ultimate question on pg. 92: "Am I black or white?"
His mother, Ruth, who is white and Jewish: "You're a human being. Educate yourself or you'll be a nobody."

Humanity has no color, and the message Ruth sent to her young son was that if you behave with dignity and poise, you will be respected.
