Just got finish watching the Documentary BLACK IN LATIN AMERICA by Henry Louis Gates Jr, the brother and Black Intellect from Harvard who found out that his Doctorate dont mean shit and he still a nigga to the white establishment; when he almost got his ass kicked and shoot to death by trying to enter his own home by the Police.
But the Documentary is real good touching on the descendants of slaves who are still facing hard times in Latin America, these hebrew men and women are facing racism and some a racial identity.
And there are some brother and sisters in mexico that have there own black community and consider themselves black, and what got me is that for every latin country including mexico that got their independence from Spain it was black african slaves at the forefront and when they free the latin countries from spain rule, they still face racism.
The series focus on Mexico, Cuba, Haiti and Dominican Republic, Peru and Brazil.
This series change my whole look on AFRO LATINO'S because there was a time (for the few that i met) i seen these brothers that look like me, have the same color of skin, same hair and black hebrew blood but they act like they was better than black and didnt even consider themselves black. So i was like FUCK THEM. Because if a Afro Latino was getting jumped by some other race you can bet you bottom dollar that a Black Man will come to their aide but if it was a black man getting jump the majority of the time they will stay out of it.
But this series showed that their are some brothers and sisters in Latin America that except and proud and love their blackness.
So if there is any AFRO LATINO AND BROTHERS please talk on this and tell your experience of being a Black Latino.
Here's some links if you havent seen the documentary.
