Black is Ambiguous
Black is ambiguous. Because knowledge of our culture was stripped. The definition of our culture is blurred. Black is an unkown that outsiders can only guess what the true meaning is. Black has many meanings; it could mean hard working & determined, lazy & unmotivated. One thing it should be is self explanatory. Hopefully it remains ambiguous so that it may be self defined by individuals. Since individuals are part of the whole, the construsction of Black-American culture should start with persons defining themselves. Houses are built by a collection of inseperable bricks and each brick is baked into a solid building unit. Let the individuals define themselves by the grace of god, then once their eyes are cleared they can help their brothers clear theirs. Then the foundation is laid but we remain ambiguous since being red, being yellow, being brown are all being black.
