adj.— «I asked the males in my class, “What’s the first thing you guys do when you’re together discussing a ‘freak’ or a ‘fox?’ You ask, “Hey, what she look like?…Oh, man! She’s real fine, man. She’s light-skinned,” at which the class got quiet and smiled. Then a young girl said, “He’s right…” while the rest of the students giggled, easing the embarrassment of being “moded.”» —“Community Essay Living Under ‘a Veil of Denial’ Bias” by Alfee Enciso Los Angeles Times Dec. 28, 1992.
