So who defines what it is to be black in America? Who defines what the black experience is and is this experience monolithic? If I am black but don’t have the prevailing agreed upon experience of oppression, does it mean I’m not really black?
Or does it mean THERE ARE MANY black experiences in this country. And I’ve said before, one day a segment of black folks who sympathize with my experience but who are presently not openly vocal about it are going to start speaking up.
JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE BLACK AND I AM TOO DON’T MAKE YOUR EXPERIENCE MINE! We ain’t all the same nor do we have the same perspective or opportunities.
