Can a black person marry outside their race, but keep their blackness?
For example will they still go to that black church, eat black food, go to black clubs, vist family members with other half, kiss their teeth when vex lol, hang with their black friends, wear their normal clothes, speak the same dialect, etc etc........?
when I said blackness Im referring to black mannerisms not colour.
Blackstar you really should state the exact who's of your comments. I have a suspicion your shying away from the undesired responses and that these really are your genuine opinions.
To add, on occasions where 'those' men have stereotyped me as the 'white man black woman' there English is top perfect also.
Conclusion - black men are a troubled people + (antidote) fellow black women to appease, uphold their broken egos = Makes *blackstar happy.
As for what Chris Rock said; I'd say that Niggers are Black people too....
Moving forward, the 21st century hasn't changed that much. Perceptions of identity still remain the same. I've had people, both black and white assume I'm the type to prefer white women because, and I'll quote "you don't act black" I've been told this point blank.
I'll end this here as I've already wrote my opinion on this subject previously but had to reply to @june_4real's great post.
In Africa they teach the Queens English and the majority of African's converse this way. I can't witness this for Caribbeans im afraid but please do share your experiences. Even growing up my parents would use an exceptionally high level of English to correct my mistakes and to lecture me. They would never say for instance "stop being silly" they would always refer to biblical parables or fables, so i grew up with a broader or (upper middle class vocabulary). Even when i visit Africa and i converse with the younger children they seem so wise simple because their vocabulary is unrestricted. Where im from in Africa our tongue is very sharp, and we enunciate very well and we are renowned as a people for it.
To return, i must add that black does by no means translate as uneducated, and when our community makes such idiotic statements we are reducing ourselves. I have been around white people more so than the average black person (again i accept i might be making an assumption here) and i can vouch that black people generally speak better English than whites.
Whilst i am here let me just state that although whites may be the latter in society they are the latter also in working and under classes. In laymen terms there are many more average white men and women as their are the rich, and the average white does not speak the queens English. Rest assured, i will be the first to vouch even that most thugs, hood rats whatever you wanna call them speak better English that the majority of whites. Again alot of my witnessing is favorable to the Black African community so i would like to hear more accounts from my Carribbeans bro's and sisters.
I hate to exhaust you all but whilst i am here may i also add that a lot of black men have shied away from approaching me in the past because they consider me to be a coconut. In addition, whenever i have further investigated this they also express that i 'look the type to like white men'??? Oh an its usually because of the way i speak. *overly exaggerated sigh*
What is that about?
My experience is that parents of Indian/Pakistani heritage are generally hostile to their kids dating 'Africans', as well as the other way around......where it happens the Asian partner often keeps their other half hidden from their family because of the aggro it will cause.....
Tho of course there are plenty of 'Asian' folks in the Caribbean in places like T & T and Guyana, so it might be more commonplace there.....
