Also... hear me out ...LOL
 
It's hard to come to another country and have someone tell you WHAT you are...You are born Columbian , raised Columbian and come to the US and now you are black y nada mas ... there is nothing wrong with being black but what about their Columbian identity.... that is alot of Afro Latinos struggle imo and some are just straight coons too...

When a Hispanic says their not black it's different from when an African says they are not black.

Hispanics deny there African heritage, Africans deny being AA. There is a difference.

Don't take it personal

I am speaking in regards to countries where that label is used (of the Diaspora mainly)

There are many countries where plenty people of African descent do not identify with the label "Black" and I still find it counterproductive (and not in an American way)

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


You're speaking with an AA biased mindset. I didn't identify as black when growing up. Not because of anything negative, but because that term was not used around me when growing up. You don't understand so I won't try to expect you to.

Not surprised as this is a problem throughout Latin America but compared to those messed up Dominicans, afro-Brazilians are like Eldgridge Cleaver, lol.

I really wanna check out the DR soon cuz I hear this a lot, folks as dark as Akon talking about "I no black papi"

pretty much... 

someone was trying to explain to my friend while i was there that it had something to do with the Haitians...but the explanation was so long and drawn out I just started to gaze at the scenery.

And I wasn't talking about coming to America and being called "Black"


I'm talking about being called Black (or your country's version of that word) IN your own country

I know, I was speaking in general. Many people feel that these are same thing.
