Re: Six black teens massacred in Rio

Wow! This sounds like the happenings in south Central on a hot summer day where gang bangers come to a neighborhood and shoot it up just cuz a rival gang member may live there....often they are mistaken and innocent children are KILLED as a result. This historic recipe of self-hate among dark-skinned Africans is worldwide under different guises. You can see it in Dakur, Congo, Sudan or you can see it in Chicago, Detriot, St. Louis and many others areas globally-anywhere slavery left its...

It's amazing how our African style has survived through the years around the world. Before the invasion of the Arabs when black women were forced to cover their heads with cloth headgear.....the hairstyles in this articles were part of tribual identity for many villages in Africa-in term of how you can tell what group an African was from based on the headwear of the females. You also see an array of this type of style in Egyptian wall paintings. It feels good to know that the invaders both...

Interesting article ..... But ... let's not forget that most of those "Afro-Latinos" won't call themselves "Black" and want nothing to do with our/their shared history as it relates to their African heritage!! Several of those Caribbean countries are trying to BLEACH any semblance of "our" heritage off of their skin. And Mexico (as a country) damn sure isn't going to pay any homage to their own "Black" citizens. There, like anywhere else, their "Black" population is considered as their...

Yeah...just like the Cayans. Now who they THINK they're fooling. They are as black as they come. But to here them tell it...they're from Nova scotia. Where in the hell is that? No fool your ancestors ran as fast as they could from the new world as slaves headed toward Canada...and then they started breeding with the Native Americans and the Europeans there. But they are STILL black. Even though they had passed on celebrating Black History month for years......but

I think that its common knowledge that if you look at the music, spirituality, dress, food, speech patterns and some words and color of most of the Americas that it is AFRICAN. But that's just what I think. Homage to our African Ancestors is paid DAILY, REGARDLESS of what white people tell us. Especially in Latin America.

This is sooooo sad stemming from the fact that at least 90% of slaves went to the Americas: Mexico, Central and South America. 5% stays with the Island slave hubs and the rest went to the New World...and there are those black scholars who say 99% went to those regents and only 1% went to the New World.
