Do you know HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS!!!!
I’m glad this descriptor was created much longer and was not the brainchild of the racism/victim ambulance chaser….although it lends to more questions about who has done research, who has claimed credit for such research and what the underlying agendas are…..
Now…perhaps some of our native home-grown population will see its validity and understand its significance. Other non-AA blacks also understand the need to claim their heritage (i.e. Jamaican, Nigerian, etc).
WE ARE AMERICAN!!!
And note to media…STOP lumping every black person as African American. We are distinct, unique and built this country — whose benefits everyone else fully enjoys. Other people are studying us and our histories in their continuing quest for dominance.
WE need to be on firm ground about who we are as women, as people and as part of society at large.
