Denying Blackness is so counterproductive

Most of these people are too slow to realize that if they embraced Blackness that they could flip their reality on it's side

I was in a Mexican bakery store buying some morning bread.. The old lady asked me what I was ... I responded "soy negra" (i'm black)... She was like no no mejia you are not black and we went back and forth ... Pinch
I always respond to latinos that I am black because I am andddddddd they get a little bit too comfortable and want to talk about "other blacks" around me and that is a no go..

Like I said, denying blackness depending on the reason can be justified.

In Cuba you know that you are black ...


not a lot cubans in these parks so i cant speak on it. 

i was in a black psych class in college and this girl who was puerto rican and dark skinned starting talking about why she was taking the class.  and a white guy interrupted her and said arent you black? and she said no.  she explained that she was from PR and he said yeah but youre black and she was like no.  so he asked her how does she look the way she does and she said well maybe one of her ancestors way, way, back may have been black.LOL this girl is dark skin

these are the types of stories i hear all the time. i have a friend from PR and it took me 11 years to get her to just say she's black...but still puerto ricanLOL

Even when it's "justified" it's still counterproductive

Let's say everyone who's ever been called Black just embraces it, or at least doesn't make a big deal of it... it would completely take the sting out of supposedly being an insult
