And also the stereotypes that come with being Asian in Brazil. Imma hit him up soon.


I'd love to hear more. Not familiar with this topic.

I agree, but I know some black people who would disagree. Especially if they saw his son, they'd say a black man couldnt make a white baby like that LOL

its crazy but ive but living in jersey ive had to just come to terms with it accept they are not meant to know about their background.   but it makes me wonder what they teach them in there countries and families about slavery and race because ive come across way too many dark skinned latinos who have no idea they are of african decent and just think their skin color and hair is just something that sometimes happens to hispanicsStern Smile  and im not even going to mention the number of hispanics that believe their country of origin is their race.  its like an entire race of people just agreed never to talk about who they were and deleted themselves out of history.

They know their history and that they are black....It's just the stigma of being black what they want to run away from.
 
In Cuba you know that you are black ...
