Many have asked why I consider myself a Negro and not a black man like most everyone else who is of my skin tone. The answer is pretty simple. The word/term Negro is derived from the race Negroid, which is one of the only 3 true races known to man. There are The Negroid Race, The Mongoloid Race and The Caucasoid Race. All other genetic make ups of “heritage/cultures” come from these 3 true races.
Many people confuse a race with a culture or a heritage, which is unfortunate since that means many people have no clue where they originated from and are using the caucasian slave masters mentality to define themselves.
I refuse to do that. Make that mistake.
Mongoloids, from where all Asian communities seem to have stemmed. There were the Negroids; from whom the peoples from Africa and other dark skinned communities stemmed and there where the people of the Caucasus mountains; the Caucasians/Caucasoid, from whom the white peoples stemmed.
Slave masters called us Africans, then niggers, then Coloreds, then Afro Americans followed by African Americans and finally Black. I am a Negro, from the race Negroid, and that is how I label/define myself.
