Here's my problem, as I see it there's only one "black credential"... being a man, woman, or child of African decent living under the yolk of white supremacy. Period.

No. All activities that I engage in are Black, because I am a Black man.
If all activities are white until large portions of Black folks participate, how many does it take? One thousand? One million? All of them? Define for me please, exactly when something becomes Black.
Black is what we are, not what we do. Any attempts to assign race to an activity is just buying into the propaganda of white supremacy by allowing white society to define what we are by what we do. We can all come up with a laundry list of things that Black folks should or should not be doing, but doing or not doing those things has nothing, and I do mean zero, effect on their "blackness".
In this life, all a Black man or woman absolutely has to do is stay Black and die. Everything else is negotiable.
