Who decides what and who is Black enough? What does Black mean? Black is a racial identifier, but some people use Black refer to the African American culture… what makes my Black different from yours, is it language? Some of us speak Spanish, some speak French, others Patois or Portuguese, among others. That is the beauty of the African diaspora.

-from What It Means To Be AfroDominicana (via diasporadash)

Who Are you? You don’t know! - Malcolm X

"Who are you? You don’t know! Don’t tell me Negroe (Latino), that’s nothing. What were you before the white man named you a Negroe (Latino)? And where were you? And what did you have? What was yours? What language did you speak then? What was your name? It couldn’t have been Smith or Jones, or Blunt Joe Powell (Rodriquez, Perez, Rios). That wasn’t your name. They don’t have those kind of names where you and I came from. No! What was your name? And why don’t you now know what your name was then? Where did it go? Where did you lose it? Who took it? And how did he take it? What tongue did you speak? How did the man take your tongue? Where is your history? How did the man wipe out your history? How did the man… What did the man do to make you as dumb, as you are right now?" - Malcolm X’
