everybody claiming black? how is that possible when we're 10% of the population. that's a gross overstatement.
no... blacks claiming them.
you claim those who accept the label or who put the label on themselves.
according to BHM even if someone says they're black and considers themselves black, BHM still wouldn't accept them.
like Ben Justice who rejects the entire label of biracial and says he think it is a pretty term used to erase the history of black americans.
tbh bhm is the only place this is an issue bc irl biracials, light brights, high yellas, redbones include themselves in the spectrum of black.
skin tone is not the sole measure of blackness.
i know people who are technically biracial--both parents biracial--but they just say they and they're parents are black.
black is inclusive, white is exclusive
fighting that fact aint gonna help black folk
considering many civil rights leaders have had some white white in them
