I discovered this post from the following site:
http://www.raceandhistory.com/cgi-bin/forum/webbbs_config.pl/noframes/read/1460

According to this poster:

"I purely understand and back your defense against these under educated and mislead Negroes. I am melanesian myself ,which is certainly Asian not Negro, and it seems I have this issue with them as well. Negrito in itself and Negroid in itself certainly doesn't mean Negro. Negrito typically is applied to the philipinoes in the Philipines and Negroid just descibe the nonblack races that have certain negro feature."

{*sigh*]It's comments like this that increase my interest in the black people of the east & pacific. Even the people that look the MOST like africans/AAs clearly make efforts to avoid association with us. You know, they can deny us all they want, but they can't escape the fact that like in our world:

*the dominant ethnic/racial group has treat(ed) them w/ the same systematic racial abuse,

*they value the community as family,

*they believe their ppl have existed since the beggining of time,

*their cultures are/have been deliberatly misrepresented through racial propaganda (if culture is acknowledged at all),

*and that they refer to themselves as "black".

If blacks are to unite this means ALL BLACKS.

Negrito literally means in Spanish "little black(person)".

We also have to be careful with our own racism towards others. You would be surprised with the number of Indian and Bangladeshi people who move here trying to identify with Black people (during the British occupation, they were treated as black and some even called themselves so, particularly South Indian/Bangladeshi). They refuse to date/associate with white people and all of their girlfriends/wives are either Indian or Black.

Of course, this isn't the MAJORITY of the people who feel like this, but more those who notice the similarity of their skin color to our own. (And who don't try so hard to fit into white society).

Or maybe this is just what I've experienced here in Atlanta.

My own best friend from my college days was a Japanese guy who only dated Asian, Black, and Hispanic females. He hated white people. But he said that I was the only black girl in the South who didn't treat him with racism (he was from California).

BUT, too many other people (the majority) fall into this crap that tells us ALL that whiter is righter.

" Aren't our own people handsome enough? ".

I can respect asians who embrace themselves like Mr. Maidin and your japanese friend.

oh,Forgot, the average melanesian man stands at 5'0" tall, the woman, 4'10".and they DO look like africans. So I guess when colonial powers called them "Negritos", they MEANT IT. :-)

However we all know if one of them ever immigrated to the U.S., they'd be just another negro in the eyes of whites.

This is from Marsha Stewart's excellent website, Stewart Synopsis. Her essays are so dead on about how white supremacy has divide people of color as well as destroying African people for the purpose of maintaining their dominance.
