i kind of feel some type of way about generations of Blacks who were born in the US, being called African American or Black American...i mean, why cant you just be American? --why do i get the feeling that whites see American=white?


@the red, they do. But then there's the argument that only Native Americans are true americans...




I guess the same would hold true for the Tainos here....but whitey done murdered all of them off. F*ckers
.


...IA with the  poster who said the same goes for the entire western hemisphere

The thing is, you do. You just dont share the same experiences.

Not really. . Until I went to college, I never ate with them, talked to them, lived in the same community as them. It has been that way for generations. We were not walking the same walk with a different perspective. They made our lives a living hell, but they do the same all over the world to this day.

Samone, when I lived in another country they spoke nothing of it. I finished off elementary school there and there was more than enough time to mention Harriet Tubman. Maybe it was my school/ neighborhood but they didn't even mention history. By 4th grade here, my teacher made sure we knew our history/world history. *MY experience*

I posted this response at least 30 mins ago smh
