Imitation of Life

Sarah Jane?
Sarah Jane, wait.
Wait. Now, now,
let me do it.

Now, put your coat on.
What do you want to do,
catch pneumonia?

I hope I do!
I hope I die!

Honey, nothing's hurt.
You shouldn't
have let them...

They didn't ask me.
Why should I tell them?

Because that's what you
are, and it's nothin'
to be ashamed of.

Why do you have to be
my mother? Why?

Why, you're
practically normal.

You two are soaking wet.
Get out of those things
and I'll make some tea.

I'll be fine.
You better get ready.
Mr. Steve's comin'.

Serve him right to wait.
He was due here
over an hour ago.

I just don't want
everybody having colds.
Cups and...

What's wrong?
Sarah Jane's been
passing at school,

pretending she's white.
But I am white!
I'm as white as Susie.

Oh, honey,
don't you see it doesn't
make any difference to us?

Because we all love you.
I'll take you back
to school myself.

I'm never going back
to that school!

Never as long as I live!
Sarah Jane!
Don't cry!

Annie, don't be upset.
Children are always pretending.

You know that.
No, it's a sin to be
ashamed of what you are.
