The nationwide statistics conceals the dramatic developments in Vienna, because German is hardly spoken in the primary schools of the federal capital. The district in Vienna where this is most blatantly visible is Margareten, where the proportion of immigrant children has risen to 89 % that is, 979 out of 6588 children have as their mother tongue something other than German. The districts Rudolf Fünfhaus and Ottakring have a proportion of 85%, Brigittenau 79% and Meidling at least 75%.
I wish that I could give each of them a get out of black card like a get out of jail card in Monopoly. They make it seem as though other blacks are the reason they are thought of as black. It doesn 8767 t really matter whether others blacks consider you as black, you must convince white folks that you are not black. Good luck! Can you imagine a red or pink or tangerine colored rose saying, 8775 I don 8767 t want you to see my color 8776 , I just want you to see a rose when you see me. A rainbow that says, I just want you to see the rainbow not the individual colors. Self hatred, still alive and well!
They don 8767 t state it like that. But they talk around it by not calling themselves by what they are labeled as, but buy breaking out of the box & picking how they want to be addressed. I have heard some Italians (regular joes, not celebs) get upset if you call them white or Caucasian. Plus the white race is not nearly as complex as the black race. Many whites don 8767 t want to even admit they have another race in the ancestry lol. My point is some are more specific on what they identified as, rather than saying 8775 I 8767 m Caucasian 8776
No, but you don 8767 t have black ones doing it either. These are nonblack people or mixed race people trying to ask the media / fans to stop being racist and ignoring their heritage just because their skin is brown. White people are also pretty easy to identify but when a person is half black or mixed it 8767 s not easy to tell. Also you can 8767 t tell where someone is born by looking at them. I feel like you didn 8767 t read any of the responses from these celebrities.
I have a problem with the term African-American. I know white people straight from Africa that are now American citizens. I consider them to be African American. My family 8767 s ancestors came from Africa like 65 generations ago. So I consider myself just American. You don 8767 t here white people say I 8767 m British American, Irish American, etc Hell it 8767 s not on any form you fill out. Only African American. The Majority of Americans that has lived in america for generations is not pure anything.
That might be true, but people from Jamaica and Haiti , for example, do not refer to themselves as African Jamaican or African/Haitian. Does not mean that they do not acknowledge their African Heritage. I think this is what some people are arguing against, not denying their African/blackness but have problems with being 8775 African/American as opposed to just being American like everyone else. I am a Jamaican woman and like most Jamaican (despite being mixed with other races) proudly acknowledge our African roots not to say there aren 8767 t a few who strain credibility to say they are other so it 8767 s everywhere. I think some people like being called African/American rather than just black because of the ingrained stereotype that goes with that word. So whatever!
This is what I dnt understand, there is African Diaspora presence all over the world there are Black Dominicans, Black Puerto Ricans, Black Asians and the list goes on. The only difference between them is their culture other than that they still originated in Africa. Now bc we have different cultures doesn 8767 t mean we can 8767 t connect with each other. I believe that another reason to keep us separated from one another when we all can learn from each other.
Because you 8767 ve never encountered something like this doesn 8767 t justify it not happening. You 8767 re talking to a victim here, so whether or not you believe it, is really unimportant to me. The type of mentality that you are displaying is that of a skeptic who, after being told someone was by their pastor, you would reply, 8775 I don 8767 t believe you. The pastor wouldn 8767 t do such a thing. 8776 Overall, it is what it is and I 8767 m not losing any sleep over it. I 8767 m simply expressing myself. In summary, I 8767 m quite proud of who I am, how I look and how much I 8767 ve accomplished in spite of how I was treated. Not sure where you are from, but wake up (or be honest). It 8767 s quite apparent that you don 8767 t look like me, otherwise you 8767 d definitely would be able to relate. Not to be rude, but I do not need your empathy. This is obviously something that you cannot relate with (or you don 8767 t want to confess to it). Either way, this conversation has become exhausted and it 8767 s meant for those who can truly relate, as oppose to a 8766 naysayer 8767 with nothing better to do.
8775 I think people forget, I’m an islander. I’m not African American. I don’t have like African American struggles. I just don’t. I don’t have the same history. So, and I’m not even tryna be facetious…There’s a serious mind state that comes with being Black in America and being a Black American. And the history that comes with that. And all things that are passed down from generation to generation…Shame. Shame sexually. Sexually shaming. Shame on the female gender. Shame just all kinds of shame. And abuse. And belittling and all those things that come from post-slavery. 8776
This is so ridiculous! Guess what African American people aren 8767 t the only black people in the world, in fact you guys are a tiny minority, black people exist outside of America and we have our own cultures and identities that we can hold onto. Jesus get over yourselves and if she doesn 8767 t consider herself African American because she 8767 s from St Thomas how is that controversial? She 8767 s not African American.
Christian England were also the first to abolish slavery,yet it still exists in coastal Africa as well as the middle east,they just don 8767 t use the term surprises me that a handful of former white Christians have converted to Islam and that is probably because they only identified as Christians and haven 8767 t read a chapter of the New Testament so i guess it isn 8767 t so people by and large convert to Islam because they are black and for no other reason,identity and nothing more.
Being a black woman of complete Caribbean descent, I understand completely what karrine was saying. The cultures are different. We don 8767 t deny being black, we deny your culture. Not because it 8767 s wrong or less than, but simply because it is not us. I lived between America and my respective home island for 66 years (spending half a year in both places). I have experienced the difference first hand. Yes, society sees me as AA however that 8767 s not who I am. My people came from across the Caribbean (even some from Great Britain whom I don 8767 t identify with due to cultural and physical differences) therefore that 8767 s what I know. I too get offended and correct those who call me African American, because even though it is a wonderful country, my identity is as a Caribbean gyal.
Of course someone who is 655% white is not going to claim they 8767 re not white, just like you won 8767 t find someone who is 655% black claiming they 8767 re not black (leaving aside maybe a few crazies in both categories). But among people who are a mixture of both, you often have some claiming they 8767 re white (or just 8775 not black 8776 ), and you have others, i would say a lot, who will say they 8767 re black and nothing more. Among many African-Americans, they consider whiteness bad, undesirable. And not just because white people have done bad things historically (and today), but because they believe blacks are superior to whites.
Wow that was amazing. Seriously, I 8767 m multi racial. People say I must and shall be black. I tell them but I 8767 m disregarding my mother, isn 8767 t that wrong? They reply, no, because your prodominetely black. I say,my mother is native american/spainard father black/Irish. im apparently still black in the views of society. I don 8767 t like to be called what I 8767 m not and pertaining to my mother it doesn 8767 t feel good to be told I can 8767 t represent the culture I grew up with. My father didn 8767 t raise me but I will never disregard him either so I say multiracial. Simple as that. I don 8767 t see the issue. Yes we have roots in Africa, but I also have roots in Europe. They are all important to me.
Yesterday a group of Al Qaeda terrorists assaulted a natural gas plant in Algeria and killed two foreigners while taking 96 other hostage. Today Algerian special forces staged a helicopter raid on the plant, killing a number of the hostages between six and 89, depending on whose figures you believe in the process of taking out the terrorists. Among the foreign hostages were American, British, French, and Japanese nationals.
None are really 8775 celebraties 8776 except maybe in their own minds. Ellen B is NOT a Muslim it states she explores many religions so she is just a nut job, no surprise there. The rest are black or middle eastern so big deal. Question though is just how serious are they in their faith as they certainly do not live muslim lifestyles. Jackson would NEVER have had a 8775 woredrobe malfuntion 8776 if she truley were muslim.
Just saying American to mean white displays the delusion that America somehow belongs to white people when the only true Americans are the Natives. People of black African descent have been in America just as long as white americans(so longer even). Black Americans can just be called black americans or just call everyone American until told otherwise(after all they are in the country and unless their accent distinguishes them as being from another country) why can 8767 t they be American?
Dumbest article I 8767 ve ever seen. 8766 Black celebrities who say they 8767 re not African American 8767 indeed. For starters most of these celebs are in fact mixed race or don 8767 t have that much 8766 black 8767 ancestry. The ones that are purely black are clearly making a point about being labelled by their race. Outrageously stupid stuff and no one will take this site seriously if this sort of nonsense is published.
This is my thing no other country presses their citizens ( or noncitizens) to identify the way that America does. Its gotten to the point where when other point it out, groups of people get angry with them. Saying your are noty African American doesn 8767 t mean you aren 8767 t black, it means you aren 8767 t African American. I KNOW I am black. I amd NOT African American. I am Hispanic. Outside of the Native Americans, no one in this country has the right to be just 8775 AMERICAN 8776 than black people. This country was built on the sweat equity of your ancestors. Why should you be a sub culture of America when your roots are the reason for this country 8767 s progress?
Way to take what most of these folks said about their race out of context MN..*eye roll*. Most of them were saying they didn 8767 t want to be pigeon-holed because of their race, or that they weren 8767 t 8775 African 8776 American which is some made up bullsh!t anyways. Black people in America are not a monolith and isn 8767 t kind of regressive to perpetuate the 8775 one drop 8776 rule in 7569?
