Its just my opinion, I dont really feel like doing any philosophical in depth study into what im talking about ….ive been up to long, worked too hard, i have to wash my hair and I just want to coment on something that bothers me from time to time….
RACE/ETHNICITY—not interchangeable two words with different meanings
Yes I’ve taken AFR’s(have a minor to be exact) Ive even taken classes on socio-cultural learning so i know enough about race to have a dialogue on the matter in the least lol. But what seems to bother me is that people always feel the need to state their race referring to bi-racial, as if that puts you higher up on the totem pole than us one-racial people or the people that dont make it a point to tweet about it, or place it in their bios, or say it out loud.
Whats wrong with Black? In the old days if you had a ounce of black in you, that is what you where considered, a Black person. Nowadays people have a ounce, more like a droplet of white, mexican, indian, native american(black peoples favorite) and they just go overboard. Black people are one of the strongest group of people that I know, and for us to make it seem as though to be black is inadequate is not ok.
I see my sisters and I hope they gain their true sense of identity, that comes from within not based on the color of their skin.
I love being dark skin, number one reason, is that I am like wrinkle proof until like 60 lol maybe even later. IDK i think that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and I feel that we miss that sometimes!
