Is there more than one Kind of Black?
Hello ya'll. I'm new to this so be kind:) Over the past 10 plus years I've been researching the difference between learned behavior and race. You see you were born Black, White, Hispanic, or Asian...but you learned to be African American, German/French American etc. There is a huge difference between learned behavior and inherited biology. Sadly, we are mixing the two up when trying to have a discussion about being Black in America. While conducting this research I found that there are at least 4 different kinds of learned Black Culture. That’s right…different kinds of Black folks: Group A- descendents of the American Slave and/or Jim Crowe systems. When most folks (to include the CNN special) says Black this is who they mean. This is the Jesse Jackson or Rev. Als, Ray-Ray in the hood. Group B- West Indies descendent of the American Slave system. These folks share a different history from the folks above. They have their own music, foods, language…”Ethnic-CULTURE”. Colin Powell, Louis Farrakan. Group C- Immigrants from African. This are folks like Barack Obama. Although we lump them in the Black bin…they don’t share the same pains of the Group A or B Blacks. This is not to say that they are not Brothers or sisters…they just have a third ethnic culture that is different from the first two. Group D- I don’t want to bore you so I’ll just call this group mixed and ask you to read the book if you want to learn more about the different groups or how we are mixing up the different groups when trying to talk about Blacks in America. http://www.lulu.com/content/3132461
