Reply to "Who is Black????"

Faheem:
"There has always been a perceived benefit for not identifying oneself as Black. While there is no question who is White there always seem to be a question who is Black. Do not be fooled by those who wish not to be classified as a Black man or woman. Who would want to be identified with a people with a history like the one we have in America. The refusal to be identified as a Black man or woman from America as stated earlier has infected the minds of Black men and Women from other parts of the earth."


Faheem....

First: Putting aside all of your rhetoric and discourse.... You haven't answered IndependentMan's original question...

And that is WHO IS BLACK... ie... What determines a person being Black as apposed to being White, Red, Yellow ect...

Second: Now a days it is BENEFICIAL for a Black individual to "classify" or call themselves "Black"... This is where that racial ODR, brought about by those nasty White folks, becomes an advantage for Black folks... ie. Affirmative Action, Minority Set Asides, Quotas ect...

Soooooo... It is more advantageous, in the U.S., to be labeled "Black" than to deny being Black...

Those that choose to think on their own, act on their own, be themselves, earn it themselves, become Their Own Man... have an Independent attitude, and hate being pigeon holed (forced) into a category... They are usually called "Uncle Toms"...

My 2 pennies worth...
