Bob Marley once reflected:
I don’t have prejudice against myself. My father was white and my mother was black. Them call me half-caste or whatewer. Me don’t dip on nobady’s side. Me don’t dip on the black man’s side or the white man’s side. Me dip on God’s side, the one who create me and cause me to come from black and white.
