  1. You are right, it seems a strange assumption to make about a person’s race unless it is referred to specifically. I remember reading “Stranger in a Strange Land” and “Time Enough for Love” when I was a teenager back in the late 1970s. Then I sort of sidetracked into Vonnegut. Maybe it is time for another visit?

  2. Rob:

    The only other hint would be the fact that the main character’s sister is in the Army and belongs to a Unit called the “Amazons”. Truth be told the real Amazon’s were Black”… in the almost 50 years the book has been around not many people picked up on this issue and if I had not read it in the bio… I would not have made the connection. And if millions of book sales later people miss this point… does it matter?
