    I'm interested in this article but I had trouble retrieving it.

    One of my kids goes to one of those kind of schools...and he just told me like, last week that he was frustrated because he says that there are only a very, very small handful of African Americans that go to these colleges. he says that everytime he goes to a social event, like a party or something, all of the other guys are waving their country flags like Jamaica, and Haiti and etc. and he says he wants to have a flag for his culture, and I asked him what about the Kwaanza flag? he says he still wants another one, and then i told him because he looks like a Jamaican just wave that flag...I donno know? Thanks for posting this. I will try again to get it, I think the article is in Black Enterprise.

    Not sure what your sons problem is, As you say the other kids are waving their countries flag, not their cultures flag can't he do the same. When I wave a Dominican Flag I am showing that I am proud of my country, not my culture. They are seperate

    When I wave the Kwaanza flag, I am showing that I am proud of my country and my culture, so I'm not sure what your problem is, because you obviously don't seem to understand a different persepective based upon your own beliefs. Jamaica is a country and it is based upon a culture(s), and this would be the case for Haiti as well. smh.

    The difference was and is coming here from someplace else and not via passed generations who had to cope and deal in the midst of slavery then segregated everything...That's why some of us honor the likes of Paul Robeson, who rose above and beyond it anyway! FYI...
