In a new book, Professor Michael Eric Dyson explains how he described Barack Obama’s attitude toward African-American identity during the 2008 election. "[W]hat I’ve noticed is that he’s proud of his race, but that doesn’t capture the range of his identity. He’s rooted in, but not restricted by, his blackness." A new book, "Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness?", examines that concept, and the complicated identity of the 40 million African-Americans in the U.S. today.
The book’s author, Touré, fiction writer, music critic, and correspondent for MSNBC, defines "post-blackness" and gives examples of it in modern America.
Claims-based identity provides a common way for applications to acquire identity information from users inside their organization, in other organizations, and on the Internet. Identity information is contained in a security token, often simply called a token. A token contains one or more claims about the user. Think of it as metadata about the user that stays with them throughout their session.
