Wait. So you mean we created our own culture. That was made out of nothing. Because our original culture was stolen from us. We ended up making up something so great that it caused a cultural phenomenal, that now non-Aframs wish they had something a part of it or feel they need to “assimilate” to it. I know about Americanization, but you still haven’t acknowledged how African-American culture is stigmatized (globally and you each have slurs for us) and that even other black people exploit it because they use us as a gateway to white acceptance. That’s anti-black. And it’s never about white people. It’s about us. They say, “We don’t want to be treated like freaks.” Okay. Sorry. I’m still want to know what systematic harm that has on you. You mean colorism, Afrophobia, and anti-blackness? Then say that. But don’t pretend African-Americans are the “standard of blackness” because white people decided to validate it through everyone but the originators.
