To PanAfrica And All: I read the first page of dialogue in another thread here and I must say that I was very surprised that many latino blacks don't consider themselves black . My heart is hurt because beliefs like this will keep us from embracing each other as one...permanently. Do they not remember where they come from? Sammy's people are descendants of African slaves. Do he not know that? Do the others not know that really? How did they come to think like that?
