I just found this online and found it very interesting, it’s food for thought.
Based on this collection of photos, then this much must be true:
It’s possible to be of African ancestry and not be Black, and conversely it’s possible to be Black and not be of African ancestry, and thereby it cannot be appropriate to categorize an individual as being “Black” solely based on their skin tone.
It’s a lot to try to wrap your mind around, but I wonder how other people feel about this subject?
whyyyyyy does this blog keep turning questions about Blackness Black thought and Black identity into open forum questions for ALL ppl to participate in???? when do we get to discuss as a whole of tumblr who is and isn’t Asian, who is and isn’t Latino?? why do you guys keep doing this shit with Black people specifically?????
Wait but all these people are Black lol. While they are also from whatever country and culture and ethnicity they are still black. Further why do you think you can dictate that? Black humans are the first humans people of all locations and ethnicities can be Black. Really wtf is this shit? Did you know black people aren’t just those culture less Americans and don’t stick to rid annoying black label?!???
