People of all races and especially white people love many things abou Blacks, and they take those things, trying to make them their own, while too many of us look at ourselves with disdain. From the lips, hips, dark skin and most recently the gift of the ASS white people are copying US and trying to claim natural BLACK FEATURES as their own. I believe that we as Black people need to change our minds about us and begin to embrace the things that are uniquely Black. We have to love those things, while loving ourselves. Black people in America are a special and wonderful blend of horrible oppression, faith, hope, creativity, spirituality and unresolved issues. No matter how bad things are, we still have what it takes to make it better. Haven’t we always? Yes, and I love that about us. For all the problems, the ups and downs of being part of the most challenged race on the planet, there is nothing more beautiful than walking, talking and dancing in the sun as Black people. We are the party and everyone wants to attend. It’s time for us to celebrate.
And another thing, blacks in AMERICA were the last of AFRICANS that got off the ship. Only around 469,000 of us made it to this place called AMERICA. MOST OF THE AFRICANS WERE DROPPED OFF IN haiti, DR, PR, mexico, and all these other latin countries. Blacks all over the world are beautiful people(well most of us). But for some reason OUR swag, OUR style, OUR history, OUR culture, OUR beauty here in america is the one that whites and others want to be like....i guess its the ingredients In the COLLARD GREENS AND CORNBREAD....LOL
