"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."_
How can I identify with my 'white' skin, with the people who have left Europe to kill and enslave? How much I wish I could say with pride: I am 'black'!
And that is WHO IS BLACK... ie... What determines a person being Black as apposed to being White, Red, Yellow ect...
A chance to be proud?
