  1. Well historically speaking African slaves were part of Native Americans and according to those so-called black Israelites, Native Americans are black. Now I myself don’t know too much about this, but i do know that my grandmother does have native american ancestry. Now let me find out im native american as well and have a Zulu ancestor. I’ll be that savage though! Mmmhmm LOL

  2. I saw the snippet on IG and I was saddened, but I get it. I understand the mindset behind it though. Look at how they portray Africa. Every black person dreams of going to London or Paris, but no one wants to visit Cairo, Lagos, or Accra. They portray us with flies in our mouth and poverty and AIDS stricken with no hope. Who would want to visit that? Who would want to claim that land? Other people come to this country and you can engage with them and they will tell you they are proud of thier culture and nationality and homeland. Black people are not proud of being African. We are everything BUT.

    We claim everything but black, citing our different heritage and racial mix as if that makes us special when it is the black constant that makes us shine. If Flaka believes that he is NOT black, he is free to do so. But now that he has excommunicated himself from the family, he shouldn’t be able to make a dime off of black music, culture, and identity. He can’t say nigga He probably doesn’t even know about Blackfoot culture and customs. He is no different than that of a Rachel Dolezal.

      love this.

  3. I suppose. Whatever ‘flocks’ his boat. Chi, One minute the kids light-skinned African American, tomorrow they Blatinos..two weeks from now, they one third to the fifth power Cherokee divided by the sum of difference in Asia. 🙄 Let me go to ancestry and see what my history say…

      1. I do. Like I said, Zulu warrior and Iroquois or Cherokee or Mohawk or Tunica Biloxi or Seminole. Maybe Masai and Cherokee. Shit, I claim African warrior and Native American warrior.

      2. I love being brown/black so much. Not referring to just Black American but the skin. It’s really sad folks can get you to hate the skin you in…Your enemy can attack you with anything on the outside and never prevail but once you let them in your mind, you have already lost the greatest treasure of your land.

        Heres hoping for a brighter future.

  4. How ironic? Some people get upset when biracial people like Jussie Smollett or Obama choose to identify as Black.I wonder if they support this guy’s choice to say he is not Black.😒

    1. Yes, I do. If he says that he’s not black, then I will accept that. Thank you (to Mr. Flocka) and good-bye. You have requested a divorce from blackness and the divorce has been granted and the divorce is final and all purposes.

      The self-hate of African Americans is astounding and denying your Africanness is a part of self-hate.

      And, of course, people like Jussie Smolett and Barack Obama are not black. Such thinking that they are black is a consequence of the racist one-drop theory. And the one-drop theory is part of the white supremacy trifecta, which has been largely successful in crippling the black mind: 1. White/European Jesus (AKA White Jesus), 2. White/European standards of beauty and 3. White/European fostered and foisted/imposed “one-drop” theory. The one-drop theory is racist and must be rejected. Racism must be rejected in all it’s forms and permutations.

  5. I remember when I was doing my family tree on my mom’s side of the family. I found out her side of the family comes from the Lumbee Tribe out of NC. I’ve always want to explore my Native American side of my family but never did. I embrace all of who I am: African/Native American.

  6. Well, isn’t that just great!!!!!!! He isn’t Black any more. I hope he carries those results with him where ever he goes, just in case he’s attacked by his local branch of the KKK, or similar group, he can show them that clearly he isn’t Black!

  7. Black is/was a term created for those of us here in America as well as African- American for law purposes and to keep us in slavery(research the Black Laws, Black Law Codes). You had the “sellout” Boule members endorse the shit which is why most are confused on what to call us, Black, African American, negro. when you legally identify as “black/African-American” you are subject to those laws that are in place against us. which is why the killings go without hard punishment, systemic racism is just relegated to a few handouts for us, etc. Also check and research how and why Africans from the continent and other ethnicities can come here and check “Caucasian” on the application boxes and advance further and faster then Black/African American.

    We are and a lot of our ancestors are Native Americans/indigenous to this land and are entitled to it. The red and yellow “indians” that have become the standard pic of “native americans” are the result of Spanish and Asian mix when they invaded part of the Americas. True “Natives” are indeed deeply melanated people.

  8. you can always tell when these hip-hop artists have read a book or watched a documentary They come out acting like they know it all or want to give their opinion on a matter they REALLY shouldn’t. Lol
