In the book Black Like Me by John Howard Griffin, Griffin observed racism firsthand. But he can never fully experience being a Negro, he only changed his skin for 6 weeks. These are point from the book that prove this.
In the book Griffin was a white man who wanted to change his skin color to experience racism and see what a Negro goes through. He tries to get a decent paying job as a negro.
