Black Americans bleach oooo, you clearly have no idea lipsrsealed even in Ghana they still use bleaching creams


Not saying Black Americans don't bleach period.... it's rare. What do they say about Lil Kim?....she is pretty and didn't have to do that to herself.... she lost popularity after bleaching and doing the plastic surgeries. In general... from what I observed with Black Americans.... they do not like when you try to change 'what God gave you'.... but only if you're Black.....they don't care a damn what others do to their bodies. You clearly have no idea.

The term African American is a fairly new identification of a race people previously known as Negros. In fact many Native Americans/Indians were also classified as Negro or Mulatto according to phenotype. Some Black/African American still identify themselves as Native American despite the advent of DNA ancestry due to the fact there were so many tribes not just one. Many were told of their Indian ancestry passed down from generation to generation yet DNA test doesn't reflect. What tribe are they testing for When there were many. Most believe originally tribes of America were of African descent. Later tribes arrived of Asian descent. There were many wars between tribes. Europeans allied themselves with willing tribes to kill or enslave their enemies. When the Africans arrived during the slave trade it was common for them to mix with Native Americans / Indians who were also enslaved. Then there are cases of rape of women slaves by Europeans producing mulatto children. There are many admixtures that continues on today. If one was to research paintings (not photographs as camera had not been invented) of Native Indians when Europeans first arrived they are depicted as dark skinned with short coiled hair. Many Black Americans identify as Hebrew or Israelites from the tribe of Judah, the Levant, or Nubia who fled into Africa to escape turmoil to later have been sought out and captured as slaves. Some believe the Igbos are a remnant of their tribe. Some practice Kemetic spiritualism. Others identify themselves as Moorish. Contrary to popular belief there were many free Blacks in America during slavery. Mixing between European and African Americans is on the increase thus producing lighter offspring. As always though Black people come in all shades of brown. I believe climate eg Africa's hot sunny climate adds to a darker hue.
