I'm Not African American...I'm Black
“I have never been offended by the use of ‘African American,’ but personally there a few reasons I don’t particularly like the term. I have used it in my writing when making efforts to be politically correct, or as an alternative reference to Black people. Yet I have always viewed it as just that: a politically correct alternative to Black. Never something I whole-heartedly embraced. I have checked it on applications, but never used it to self-identify in real-life. It has always felt forced, redundant, and quite frankly, inaccurate. Using the term ‘African American’ feels like using Kente cloth made in China trying desperately to authenticate myself. In theory I know where I’m from, but in actuality I wasn’t made there.”

Candomblé is an Afro-Brazilian religion practiced in Brasil by the Povo de Santo. This practice originated in the city of Salavador,Bahia,Brasil which was at one time the main commercial distribution of African Slaves to other parts of Brazil, and today holds the densest population of Afro-Brazilians in all of Brazil.

The rituals involve offerings and animal sacrifices, healing,dance/trance, and percussion. Candomblé draws inspiration from a variety of the people of the African Diaspora, but mainly features aspects of Yoruba Orisha veneration.

The Candomblé ritual (toque) has two parts: the preparation, attended only by priests and initiates, which may start a week in advance; and a festive public “mass” and banquet that starts in the late evening and ends around midnight.

In the first part, initiates and aides wash and iron the costumes for the ceremony, and decorate the house with paper flags and festoons, in the colors favored by the Orixas that are to be honored on that occasion. They also prepare food for the banquet. Some domestic animals are slaughtered; some parts reserved for sacrifice, the rest is prepared for the banquet. On the day of the ceremony, starting in the early morning, jogo de búzios are performed, and sacrifices are offered to the desired Orixás, and to the messenger spirit (Exú in Ketu).

In the public part of the ceremony, saint-children invoke and “incorporate” Orixás, falling into a trance-like state. After having fallen into trance, the priest-spirits perform dances symbolic of the Orixá’s attributes, while the babalorixá or father of saint (leading male priest) leads songs that celebrate the spirit’s deeds. The ceremony ends with a banquet.

Candomblé music, an essential part of the ritual, derives from African music and has had a strong influence in other popular (non-religious) Brazilian music styles. The word batuque, for instance, has entered the Brazilian vernacular as a synonym of “rhythmic percussion music”.

@specialforever
My father's side of the family is from Bahia Brazil and most of them still live there, there ancestor also have ties to western african, because that was the one of the first place if not the first place the slaves ships would drop of slaves for sale. Many black latinos call themselves "afro latino" So at the end of the day they are still "black" with their roots from africa.
As for west indian people for the ones i know they just call themselves...west indian lol .My mother is half st lucian and half "black" but she calls herself black so i mean it is what you preferred to be called.

"Racism is dead right? We have a Black president now so all ignorance and racist ideologies are dead and gone now RIGHT? Some ignorant son of a bitch thought it was cute to say that slavery was actually ‘beneficial’ to Blacks because apparently Blacks are too stupid and violent to take care of themselves. APPARENTLY, Blacks today need protection from themselves.

BULL SHIT.

I am black. I live in a neighborhood that is 80% black and you know what? Violence of any sort is so rare here that it would be splashed on the front page of the local newspaper if it occurred at all. I’m 20 and in college and working on becoming a healthcare professional so tell me…do I need anyone protecting me from myself???

No. I don’t. Good day.

Why is it that this racist BS still happens in America, but you never see shit like this happening in other countries where black people are. And why is race such a big deal in America still. I don't get it.

@trolos714 bruh trust me its happening we just dont see it all the time. Go to Rio or Paulo in brazil, dark skinned Brazilians are treated like spit, you would think it was 1960. Only in culture rich places in brazil will you find a sense of acceptance.

“No, I’m not an American. I’m one of the 22 million black people who are the victims of Americanism. One of the 22 million black people who are the victims of democracy, nothing but disguised hypocrisy. So, I’m not standing here speaking to you as an American, or a patriot, or a flag-saluter, or a flag-waver—no, not I. I’m speaking as a victim of this American system. And I see America through the eyes of the victim. I don’t see any American dream; I see an American nightmare.”
— Malcolm X, “The Ballot or the Bullet,” 1964

““Who taught you to hate the color of your skin?
Who taught you to hate the texture of your hair?

Who taught you to hate the shape of your nose and the shape of your lips?

Who taught you to hate yourself from the top of your head to the soles of your feet?

Who taught you to hate your own kind?

Who taught you to hate the race that you belong to so much so that you don’t want to be around each other?””
— Malcolm X, 1962

“…the Negro is a sort of seventh son, born with a veil, and gifted with second-sight in this American world, —a world which yields him no true self-consciousness, but only lets him see himself through the revelation of the other world. It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his twoness,—an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings, two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder.”
— Souls of Black Folk by W.E.B. DuBois
