Why I can never be 'black'

Why I can never be 'Black'

I, as a person of 'color' (which I prefere over the term black, for at least color is  more broad, implies  broader things about a individual)...

That aside I can never be 'black' cause that term 'black' is a social construct, a colonial construct, and basically describes one as being very generic, with very basic generic functuality in society, and I refuse to be defined in that mannter...but that's just one reason..

I mean what is 'black?'...

1. a color?
2. a political order or mindset?
3. a attitude about self and life and others?

And to me that's the problem with choosing to define ones self as a 'void'...(one sec)

When defined as a void, any one can fill that void with anything they want...https://twylightzone.boards.net/thread/75/black-void-tribe-nation-identity?page=1

And I refuse to be defined as something that others can fill up with their own meaning.

Not only that, but some I've encounterd who do embrace that 'black' mentality or view of self or selves, aren't the nicest people, and tend to be very hostile on the inside, hostile at self, hostile at those who remind them of 'self' and so forth, thus the heavy use of the term 'n-gga' by those into that 'black mentality.

How is that a healthy view of 'self' or others that remind you, one, of self to refer to each other as a spin off word of derogatory term?...how is that a healthy mindset?...it's not, I've been around enough people like that to know when that term comes out of their mind, they're basically 'lost'...and their view of self is simply what society has told them view of self is, whether their own community or broader society.

I look forward to elaborating on this more, tried communicating same idea to some on a social site, and you can imagine how that went.

Show me anyone who defines self as a void or 'black', show me such a person who is happy with self, not hostile and happy with those around them...you'll be hard pressed to find such a person.

This will be continued as time allow...just got in, time to relax.

Why some refuse to be defined by the color of a crayon

If you're alive, you'll understand this, if a programmed human bot, you will not.
