For one, I NEVER USE THE TERM HISPANIC. Secondly, I am a Pan African that wants to see ALL Black AFRICANS empowered regardless of their place of birth, language, or religion.
And yes, I live in Spanish Harlem with folks that look like these people
Do you not consider these men Black African?
Of course, I do. The real question is do THEY consider themselves Black African?
How many Black Americans consider themselves African?
I know, but unfortunately a great many of our brothers and sisters don't see themselves as African at all. I've known Black friends and relatives who have vehemently denied being African when I remind them of their heritage when they talk bad about Africans. "I'm not an African, I'm an America. I was born and raised here in America." "I don't know none of them motherfuckers over there in Africa. I don't know nobody in a damn hut." Stuff like that.
African-Americans like us are the minority in my real life experiences. Most African-Americans from all that I've seen and read are almost throughly Westernized.
