Power is the ability not just to tell the story of another person, but to make it the definitive story of that person. The Palestinian poet Mourid Barghouti writes that if you want to dispossess a people, the simplest way to do it is to tell their story, and to start with, "secondly." Start the story with the arrows of the Native Americans, and not with the arrival of the British, and you have and entirely different story.

Dominicanboy do you have nappy hair? This is like your third thread about gud hair lol
Unos nacieron para ser estrellas y otros para ser estrellados
LOL ..."nappy" hmmm idk I really dont know what that word means.I've been told I have "good hair/bad hair. " that boy with the curly hair" that boy with the fro" So idk.
But Hair is a BIG deal in the afro communities, but I have many females in my family and friends and I even see little girls 5 years old say derogatory things about their OWN hair. Why would I have to have a certain type of hair to make a post.
How many taino, light skin, guess my ethnicity, or african- american, or latino posts have people made? lol

Somalis use other words like Jareer (funny cuz there are MANY somalis with "jareer" hair), and they seem to be the only ones that throw "bantu" everywhere, they even call West Africans, bantu, Shaking My Damn Head! By children in the Nile Valley, what country are you referring too? Lets pretend you're talking about Sudan, "Abeed" or "Abid" means "slaves" in Arabic, i've never in my life witness a Sudanese call a west African or a Bantu, abeed, but i've read couple of stories where North Sudanese face a ton of racism in Arab Nations and they are called "Abid or Abeed" along with other sub-Saharans, so it would be very ironic if they actually did that.
Oromos people don't speak the same language, because they are not just one ethnicity, they are a mix of different ethnic, linguistic groups, culture and religion.
