    One of my buddies that is Puerto Rican was telling me there is large number of PR's that are now embracing their African roots with fervor and pride. They even have a great label for it. La Diaspora

    It's so right to believe in Black pride, but so wrong to believe in White pride, sure.

    Yes, I know, because whites subjected blacks to centuries of slavery & whites subjected the native American Indians to near nothingness.
    It's gotta be tough being white; I tell ya.

    Nitty Scott is a Brooklyn rapper who's probably never been to the places she's singing about Asclepias

    For some reason I dont think it was that much of an issue in Brazil. They have one of the largest African populations on the planet. Mexico actually has colonies of Black people but for the longest no one was aware.

    Not sure how that makes her any less Puerto Rican and repping Africa?
