I know JG, I got the twice as good speeches, but with a clear disclaimer.

I think it's harmful if a black person is deluded into believing that assimilating makes them better or superior to other blacks 

I also think it's healthy to retain afrocentricity/black cultural identity and not assimilate completely... a lot of the inferiority complexes we suffer from comes from assimilating into white culture while at the same time being excluded from white culture

i mean, hell, a nationwide shortage of mangoes would make white folks view us in a negative light. we're to blame for every damn thing. 

i don't care what they think and i never get too comfy with them to get bamboozled.

I think cultural assimilation and acculturation are essentially the same

If not, that's how I meant it

Unless you're talking about assimilating through miscegenation?   Wow, a deeper topic, my mercy touchy but so relevant. Hard to address without strong afrocentricity in place first
