In 2015 what does the term 'black', to describe others mean?
'Black' means what now?
That one is not 'pure white?'
Or does it mean anyone having physical features attributed to African continent population?
The term 'black' to describe people is very generic, and outside of political categorization has very litter accurate meaning in describing anything.
Most people today define self based on values, lack of, not color or genetic make up.
As one who is, has been, was raised around many...I can honestly say 'black' is not a accurate way to describe people anymore or way to lump so many individuals together who have nothing at all in common accept coincidental DNA past.
Not sure why society loves lumping all people defined as 'black' in one pot all the time.
By doing so, it robs so many of their personal, individual identities...which others seem to have the right to enjoy.
Not sure why a millionaire successful 'black' must be lumped into same bucket as welfare mother who's all thugged out.
Maybe Mohammad Ali says it best over 40 years ago, so keen back then.
Now look, as if bright males like him were destroyed, drugs pumped into communities, and now people on the streets behave and talk like void social zombies without any identity accept self destructive crime culture..

Odd how most 'Pro black' types are actually lighter skinned or mixed...like Mohammad Ali above, or Malcom X, who was considered 'Red', or Ice T, very very light skinned rapper who rapped about pro black stuff.
Seems most who are 'pro black' tend to be of a lighter skin tone, and darker types just seem mean, bitter, and uninterested in anything positive related to 'black'.
seems the loudest proponents of 'black power' or 'black liberation' actually seem to be those of very light or mixed skin tone.
Yet those of very dark African skin tone seem to be very indifferent to any kind of 'black unity' type of movement, and instead always seem to walk around bitter at everyone, the world, and especially those of lighter skin tone than them.
There has to be a phycology behind this, maybe one we'll explore and try to figure out in a later post.
