Just say you want to know your roots pre America, you bringing up DR And PR like they aint in the same boat as you. If you want to know your roots take a DNA test and research the nation/ethnic group you have the largest % of.

I talk to my white friends they know if they are Irish, German, Scottish etc..

I talk to my Asian friends they know if they are Chinese, Japanese, Korean, etc...

I talk to my Latino friends they know if they are Mexican, Puerto Rican, Dominican, etc...

All I know is that I am black. This may not be the case for ALL black people but the majority of African Americans like myself just have to identify as black tired.gif

9 times out of 10 your a mix of a bunch of african ethinic groups, same goes for the dominican friend of yours who you think knows their roots. Lol folks gotta understand pretty much everyone in the western hempishere is a mix of something.

Yea I understand that we most likely are a mix of a bunch of african ethnic groups at this point, but what groups would that be? I don't know. I've seen the heated debates about Dominicans on here and whether or not they are considered black, but at least they know they are Dominican. I have no idea where my roots trace back to.

 

It's not your fault you don't know your roots, blame good ol' Imperialism Slavery and Willie Lynch. It's the same for me, my people was dropped in Jamaica during slavery and that's all I know roots wise. As long as you respect and understand that your true nationality is African you are good bruh.

There is a HC thread for those interested in the films.

I dont think its fair to discredit and disregard what blacks in america have done though. Orobably ties into a lack of knowledge of self.

I would never say discredit accomplishments since being forced to come here. We built this country on our backs, unfortunately our ancestors were never given the credit so it weird for us to fight for that 40 acres and a mule when we are distracted by a bunch of BS.

Has anyone in here tried one of those DNA ancestry tests that Oprah was promoting a few years back?
