I see myself as Afrikan, not black, colored, nor nigger. My father (Baba) always told me that "we are from a culture, not a color. There is no such place as Black land or nigger land, so why call yourself that. People are from cultures, not colors." Nor do I call myself American. I say, "Afrikan living in America." Can someone tell me why I still get so much negativity from our own people who refuse to accept their own roots?
