Who are you? Are you Black or not enough?

How do you define yourself, if you have a little drop?

I found this story very interesting. You might too.


BTW, Maria' sister is Soledad O'Brien. There's the Irish connection.

In reply to Casper

I agree with some of what that prof wrote.

Mixed Brazilians, some mixed Caribbean and South Americans don’t consider themselves black at home but want to take advantage of the system in the US

Good article, many of the opinions I agree with, the label ' Black ' have different meanings in different places, many Afro mixed Latin Americans and some Afro mixed Caribbeans become offended if they are labelled as Black, because Black in some places the label 'Black' refers to social status and class. American Blacks of late are sometimes resentful of Blacks from different places out of America because they feel that they cannot truly relate to the Black American experience.
