Are you black or mixed raced?
My mom is Black, and my dad was half Native American half German.
I consider myself Black though. Why? Because Black people are the only group that accept me with open arms. When whites or even Native Americans see you, you’re always Black to them, just another nigga, a mutt. They never see themselves in you, they never even half ass accept you as one of your own unless you put down your Black side and talk bad about them.
I don’t get that from Black people. Most Blacks accept me, and consider me one of their own. Some don’t, but I don’t give a shit about them lol. I go through the struggles, trials and tribulations as a Black man, and Black people are the only people who fully understand me and the only people I can relate to in regards to being a person of color. Its very hard for whites to understand my day at work and how one of my managers were being a racist asshole, under the guise of trying to in force a company policy. I love my German and Native America heritage, but they do nothing for me, and I don’t relate to them. I especially don’t consider myself that close to whites culturally or socially because I don’t share any of their privilege.
So to answer your question. I am Black. Always have been, always will be.
P.S. Most Blacks are mixed race anyway because slave masters couldn’t stop raping them.
