You are not African American by birth right nor birth rite. You merely choose to be a thing chosen specifically for you.
It will not benefit you nor your progeny culturally, economically, spiritually,socially or politically. To the world you are a character in a non-fiction novel as a fiction.
Anyone not willing to admit that America is the first dry land lifted out of the water,land of the first civilization,land of the first people,land of the first pyramids are illiterate or they have an agenda. Either way anyone steering you mentally from the path of cultural connections to N.America and physically enticing you to a path of abandonment is indeed an enemy to you.
