What is Black? A Reflection on Race

What is black enough in a complex race?

Where many of our ancestors were stripped of their origin, identity and beliefs.

What is black enough with division within, definitions of blackness defined by those who fail to see the systemic design of self destruction?

Is blackness a way of speaking? Is it a way of looking? Is it where you live? Is it where your allegiance lies ?

We must stop and ask our self by what are we designed? Is being friends with other races against the rules? Is serving all people a strike against blackness ?

We are a people of various layers that are sometimes incongruent with expectations. We must strive to be welcoming to each other, no matter where we land.

Because this is deeper than just drawing a line in the sand.
