...sigh* I love her..she said everything i feel and more....
your thoughts? repost? freepost? lol

BLACK AMERICA
I don't get to walk in White people's private spaces and say: "You know, I identify with you, therefore I AM you." 
White Women....and Black Women don't have the same type of hair. So this entire debate with Curly Nikki is ass-backwards typical USA camel sh*t. I posted the article in Ebony by Jamilah Lemieux because anybody with common sense and motherwit could see Jamilah was right. 
Me personally, I think this is going to get much worse for Black Americans. And I blame centuries of being raised on White people's 1 drop rule. This entire way of thinking goes back to that slave tenet....that there is no definition of Blackness. 
Yet everybody else is clearly defined. 
Whether it's casting a movie role or promoting "natural hair" beauty, the actual Blacks go on the bottom or in the back. It's the same sh*t. A Filipino woman in Oakland (who has 0 black blood) was chosen to represent Nubian Queens on a float in a parade. And on Hot 97 radio in NYC, a black man is calling white women, "White Nubian Queens." 
Are yall woke?
Most Black American people are just not ready to deconstruct this problem that has been brewing for centuries in USA. They cling to the notion that Blackness is simply a state of mind...anybody can access that mind-set and BE IT; represent it. You notice the AAs love to say: "Well she/he identifies with".....like that means sh*t. 
Of course...it never goes both ways. I don't get to be "Miss Japan" or "Miss Swedish-America" on a float. Hell no. 
And the more that "Faux Black" folks begin to have WHITE MOTHERS and Non-Black Mothers, this sh*t is going to get more and more contentious with all the power and representation going to ...guess who?
Meanwhile, Real Black folks who have 2 Black parents (or a black & a mixed parent) will be pushed to the back; eased to the bottom....told that they aren't the ones who define blackness....
THIS is why I'm the way I am. I don't adopt the AA plantation tradition. I firmly reject it. Because I can see clearly how it's destroying AAs and how it encourages them to breed out; to erase self. I can see how they keep changing the definition of "Black" to accommodate everybody but Black people. 
I can't go in White People's homes and announce "I identity with you, therefore I AM you".....hell no.
This is NO LONGER the Jim Crow era. And AAs need to begin the PAINFUL work of adjusting how they're going to identify themselves because quite frankly...the infiltration by OTHER MOTHERS and their children (who ride in 2 boats) is putting your black ass right where you were to begin with...the bottom. 
At some point...."Actual Blacks" have to define Blackness in ORGANIC terms and begin closing ranks to protect their representation and their power of their own group. I mean, seriously, how many White Presidents of the NAACP Chapters do you need in order to feel that you're inclusive and no-racist. 
"Oh but, Kola they jess as black as I am...and Bill Clinton was the first black President. Dey identify with us!"
To me, you just seem like a slave. The sh*t is pitiful.
Let these White women & their "Hair adventures" not displace our social struggle to be ourselves and to assert our blackness. Their blues ain't like ours. They don't go through sh*t compared to what we with The Helix (nappy African hair) go through. White women & Non-Black women are FREE as fresh air compared to us. And sisters or not, we need less White Supremacy...not more of it.

So you're not Black if you are biracial (one blk parent, one non-blk parent)

But if you have 1 biracial parent and 1 blk parent, you can claim Black?

What if you have 2 half-Black biracial parents, are you Black?

What if you have 2 Black parents and you look Biracial? Who's Black then?


Or is it only if you come out the womb of a non-Black woman that defines you as non-Black?

Someone explain to me how this math works

This really had nothing to do with the actual discussion going on regarding non-BLack women embracing the natural hair movement... but it was an interesting response regardless

Someone post the link to the Curly Nikki article please

her point is there is no solid foundation of blackness, which allows other races (white ppl) to infiltrate spaces which are supposed to be for us

it has everything to do with the discussion, just in a different way
