What Carolina said.  I have heard the same sentiments from Trini's who have beenhere less than 10 years.  My boy says he tries to tell folks back home how it really is here but no one believes him.  They believe what they see on TV. He said life was easier before he got his papers.

You already know, so what did she do with her "papers"?Geek I'm glad she is happy with her choice to move home and I liked her article as well.  It reminded me of Derri. [Buju Banton]Who can afford to run will run, but what about those who can't? they will have to stay [/Buju Banton]

Silly girl!!! LOL

I thought is was very deep and I felt where she was coming from. Everyone gets mad at me when I say I hate being called African American because they assume that Africa is the part I'm worried aboutConfused

I remember the one where I completely lost my sh*t for the first time on BHM.  It was titled non-AA blacks or something.  I was heated as fck.

But I have to say that if you didn't know she was from someplace else and took that part completely out of the article.  She was saying something pretty sad that we all feel. 

The ONLY reason to disagree to be honest is because she's saying it and she's not "us".  But she is "us" and I choose to embrace her. 

Go figure.

personally...i wish "we" all could embrace each other and rebuke these ill gotten pre-conceived notions in the first place.  but oh no.  it seems one has to be literally slapped in the face with harsh reality and truth before getting it?  as if taking each others word for it isn't good enough...

She has a good mom, I bet she will be disappointed, well written article. Most immigrants feel like her though. "Buffalo soldier"

@TC BMH ate my post.

We are starting from a place of mistrust.  The author hit on that discussing how they trip over themselves for non-AAs trying to seem like we are over here lying about them.   And internal the damage that is already here makes us come out of the womb with "trust no-one" on our onesies.

I was shocked to see non-AAs at BHM acting brand new though.  I was like our ancestors came from the same place, we just got dropped off in different spots.  FOH.  Have a million transatlantic seats ma.
