They would be Brazilian nationality, Black race.

If they were born in America/American citizen, they're
nationality would b e American, race Black.  


Yes. My point exactly.

It seems like she's bragging about having white people in her family instead of just poor black slaves. How is that something to brag about...? Confused

This is what it all boils down to.
Mental slavery=white is right

hasnt people in our entire community been doing that for generations?  isnt that what the ls/ds debate is about?  isnt that why you have black people drooling over someone with light skin and light eyes?  its all about whiteness.

hmm I consider myself black but not African american being that my parents are from the Caribbean and I have duo citizenship, but for her to deny slavery in the Caribbean is ridiculous.

Exactly. One day my ex said some stupid ish like this. He use to brag about the fact that his moms family is native American descent. But he would always leave out his black ancestors on his fathers side. After a heated argument, and a black history 101 lesson... I broke up with him a shortly after. I couldnt stand anymore of his coonery

Does she mean she's not black, or that her ancestors arent African?

“And I think people forget, I’m an islander. I’m not African American. I don’t have like African American struggles. I just don’t. I don’t have the same history. "


Hmmph...after reading. Nope, she's not African American if she wasnt born in the US.
But black she is.

and @ the bolded...how long as she lived in the US? If its just since adulthood, then i can see how she doesn identify with US black history. Our histories are similar (slavery,e tc), but definitely not the same; rampant, daily, and institutionalised racism, etc. I understand that part of what she's saying.

I don’t have slavery in my family so and a lot of islanders don’t, so our mind state is different. "

LOL wha? Karrin must not have been in history class
