I think besides my grandfather we are all just African American.
 
There havent been any interracial marriages or kids in my family.
 
What about intercultural? It doesn't have to be about race. And what was your grandfather?
Everybody has just married/had children with other African-Americans.
 
My grandfather is Cape Verdean descent from Portugal...I think that may be considered black? I am honestly not sure because I don't know if he considers himself black...I don't think his parents considered themselves black...
 
I can't tell you how he considers himself but he could very likely have african in him. Cape Verde is an island of the coast of Africa and it was very busy in the slave trade.
 
 
And see, you are absolutely right that he has african in him. So I have always considered him black. But like you said, I can't tell him how he considers himself.  I wish he would talk about it more because this is interesting stuff Star
 
My dad use to tell me stories about him growing up in the Cape Verdean/portuguese community with his grandparents. So everything he knows about his culture comes from his grandparents. My grandfather isn't to open about it.

Mothers side is African American. My grandfather had free papers from his father locked in a chest. My grandmother showed it to us when we were all in our teens. My aunt has it now. My grandmother (rip) was black and Cheyenne Indian. She never really mentioned anything about how she grew up or anything. She was and has always been a complete mystery.

 
It has been said that the land they have is the same land my great grandfather lived on when he was a slave. Don't know how true that is though.
 
My pappy side is Puerto Rican and Black. I just claim black, don't have time for all that other technical sh*t.
 
Siblings all murried black folks sans exoticalness

India - mum
Jamaica - me
Ireland (paternal grandmother)

Indians (and some Irish) were sent to Jamaica as indentured servants and slaves (Irish and Germans were slaves in Jamaica) after the abolition of African slavery, so my family is of direct descent of that migration. My family is from Uttar Pradesh province, India and some are from Calcutta/Kolkata, India

...and if you DIDN'T know, INDIANS actually introduced marijuana to Jamaica. Smoking of the herb was used in ritualistic meditations in India for thousands of years before the servants were shipped to Jamaica. Come in like ganja farming it inna mi blood LOL. So while we mainly see the Rastafarian faith engaging in the smoking of the chalice and sensimilla, its roots (no pun intended) are actually from India.
