i got labeled hispanic by my co-workers just he other day, even though they KNEW my racial and ethnic background. And my boss told me pointblanktomyface that i wasn't black, but "mixed". I told her...'no i am black and just black" and she looked at me like i was insane and was denying my heritage...so you are wrong about that.
dear people try to speak Spanish to me ALL the time Latin men hit on me just as much as black men no biggie I tell them my heritages and if you are not actually Latino you will still be considered black!! People ask me "what are you" I tell them black and they say ok and what else ???? I tell them that too! Plenty of black Americans are technically "mixed" that's not a secret !!

black latinos can't even be latino according to AAs and white supremacists. The USA doesn't see culture. So what's your point again? Have they ever INSISTED on lumping you into another category though. That's the most bizzare reaction that i've gotten. My co-workers some of them insisted that i was hispanic...as in like from Mexico.

LOL, quit lying, ain't no African American checking for Dumbinicans, we disowned you're slow self hating tragic mulatto asses a long time ago. We ain't claiming you and ironically, it's always Dumbinicans who always got US in your mouths, nobody even mentioned Dumbinicans yet you had to go there.
Afam disassociate with West Africans and Haitians? Since when? Did you pull that out of your ass too? If there's any truth to that, it's the other way around, there's SOME Africans and Haitians who come here and believe they're better than US and distance themselves from others outside their ethnic group, but in general, we get along just fine.
And I find it funny that a DUMBINICAN is trying to accuse Afam of distancing ourselves from Africans or Haitians when Dumbinicans are notorious for distancing themselves from their own people - Blacks! You even discriminate against dark skinned Dumbinicans, claiming they're really Haitian, because they're an everyday reminder than you people are BLACK! Dumbinicans only associate with Afam or other blacks when it's to jack our style and claim black when it benefits you. Other than that, you people are busy trying to hide behind the 'Latino' card, pretending you're not black, and trying to fit in with the lighter Latinos who don't even claim you and view you as impostors.
Smfh. Pathetic.
If you're going to disagree with me whatever but don't drag ALL Dominicans down because that just shows your true ignorance. I'm an individual just like you are. And I'm speaking from experience. I've seen some AA (not all) talk real nasty about Africans or Haitians and you cannot tell me that what I've experienced is wrong because they're my own experiences.
Dominicans don't associate w/ AA or other black people? Not true. Come to NYC.

<quoted text>Honey you didn't accomplish anything with me on your posts to me,except in you egotistical mind. Like just because you believe in something,in this case,that only U.S.descendents of blacks slaves should be listed as AA,does not mean that everybody holds to that,as evident of some saying to the contrary right here on this thread. I just today,and last week asked some AA friends,who like yourself are descended of U.S. black slaves,and they answered that in their opinion,the term AA is appropriate for me,since I was born in U.S..
And lady,if I can call you a lady, just because you believe that something should be a certain way,you can't really shove your crap down anybody's throat,and especially not mine.
I was speaking to another poster about the limited choices that are presented on the ethnicity questionaires,because I damn well felt like posting about it,wasn't talking to you about it,so where to you get off,telling me to stop with the census topic? You really do need to chill.
I could be born in Ethiopia, it wouldn't make me one of them. you seem to not get the fact that you aren't AA but a west indian residing in the U.S., why YOU can't except that is beyond me...

Can you read,and comprehend what you read?.God how ignorant can some of you on here be? Didn't I say that first- I am just as content to call myself WI American as AA? Did you read that or not?.Next, didn't I write that many people and they are not even west indian like myself,butthey're African American, descendants of U.S. black slaves(like maybe you are) and these AA have told me when I asked their opinion,they said that to them they thought that African American seems appropriated to call me.
So conclusion is- some AA descends of U.S slaves,don't all agree with you.Just because you believe one thing,doesn't mean it is the Gospel.

is of the BLACK RACE! Ethnically, Johnny Depp is about as white as they come. In fact i think he has creole roots.

RACIALLY: In america i'm of the black race by the ODR...and so is Depp...but definition-wise...Depp is of the white race and I am mulatto because depp looks pure white and i look halfrican.

Can't use Johnny Depp as an example of a white looking person, who is black by the one drop rule,because Johnny Depp is not part black,he is part American Indian,by way of his mother,not part black.

Read a few biographies on the internet about his ethnicity,and none say that he is of black African descent,this one that you show here does. However he is not publicly considered black,if he was, then every link on his biography would have included black as part of his ethnicity,and most of them did not.So I think it is fair to say,that he is publicly known as a white guy.
It's not like along with his white guy features,he also has one black parent, like Jennifer Beals,or Lonette Mckee,who look white,but they have one black parent,in that case,he'd be known as a black,or biracial person and it would without fail be mentioned on all bio writeups on him. But his black ancestors was,what did the bio you showed state? like 9 generations back?,and only one black ancestor back then,at that? That makes him what,1/16th black,or not even,but more like 1/32th.?
