No many would rather say "I'm not black, I'm hispanic/latino". There are a few that do have black pride. Fortunately, Brazil is one of those countries. Maybe the attitude will spread to the rest of Latin America."
I still cannot cease to be amazed at the dis-unity of peoples of African descent around the globe and the contempt that people of African descent have for one another and for who they REALLY are; at least considering that everywhere around the globe, WE ALL have and still are suffering from contempt from those not of African descent, discrimination, hatred, violence, and as stated, even slavery, to this day, in the year 2004.
I used to think that I would live to see the day that the Black race would stop bowing down before all other races on this planet (and since a majority of all of the peoples of African descent's problems worldwide continue because of this fact), long enough for us to move on to place of self-pride, independence of the approval and sanctions of all the world's peoples not of African descent, but I do not now believe that it will happen in my lifetime.
