I was shocked when LeVar said that he thought Roberta was white based on her mom. I had it the other way around. I pictured a "white trash" dancer mom for Twyla, and a serious black church mom for Roberta. I suspect this is because I'm white, and immediately identified with the character Twyla since she seemed to be the primary. It wasn't until listening to LeVar's commentary that I considered another interpretation. Fascinating!
