NEGRO: Finding Identity - Rosa

"That idea of colorism what we’re really talking about is…anti-black prejudices that run rampant, I think within the Latino community but I also think within the African-American community, if we look at the history of race and ‘light-skinnedness’…Black to me is also a consciousness, it’s a politic, so people look at me and be like ‘why you calling yourself Black?’ well you have to understand what Black is, what does Black mean?, Black is not African-American, we’re talking about a global Black or African Diaspora, but it’s  important to also say that as a Latina, at some level i may have a privilege that other darker sisters don’t enjoy and we have to be mindful of that as well."

Self-identified, Black Puerto Rican activist, Rosa Clemente discusses her awakening to ethnicity and race and how education leads the path to liberation.

Please educate yourself about the Black Panthers,  The Brown Berets, and Yellow Peril. Learn more than standardized state educational institutions will teach you. Open your mind.

We shouldn’t leave out the American Indian Movement though.

One hospital reported treating two gunshot victims. It lines up with police reports that two protesters were shot, but we don’t know their identities or how well they’re doing. Without hospitals speaking up, all observers can do is listen to the police.

Because lying to your kids about sex helps nobody. Telling them that sex is “only between mommies and daddies” is a lie that leads to confused, hormone charged teenagers. Telling them that sex is “only something that happens when two people love each other very much” is a lie that causes hormone charged teenagers to confuse “love” with “lust,” or “obsession.” It leads to leaps of logic like, “If I have sex with them, we must be in love.” Or worse- “If I love them, I have to have sex with them.” And how many teenage tragedies are based on that misconception?
