Please explain why you find my actions objectionable.

I have seen how "black American" women are treated and I do not wish to be on the receiving end of such malice and hatred.

I will have to PM it to you, as it's not really fair to state it in the thread if it turns out I'm wrong. I don't think I'm wrong though.

And actually it was four screen names by one OP. This one (if I'm right) would be the fifth. Th1tguy was not one of them.

Another sad and pathetic little girl who is mad at the world because everyone sees her for what she really is.
Stay miserable, my friend.

I think you're a troll but just in case you're not, you will never be Ghanaian American unless that's where your ancestors are from. You will always be an African/Black American whether you like it or not. I don't think there's any shame in that at all. Just be yourself.

If I do take a DNA test and discover my Ghanaian ancestry, I will continue to state that I'm Ghanaian American (as well as the other admixtures that are included). I do not like the label "black" because it's absolutely meaningless and doesn't state anything about one's true culture/ethnic origin (or color for that matter) because I've yet to meet a truly "black" person.

Lastly, the construct of "black" is primarily derived from an artificial/false "culture" that is largely based on victimhood and pathology. Again, I choose NOT to identify as such. You may believe there is no shame in adhering to such a destructive label, but I certainly see the shame and defeat of a people who have allowed other's to define their norms and values.

NO THANK YOU!

Call yourself whatever you want to darling. Really it's nobody's business what your family heritage is anyway unless you want them to know.

If Michael Jackson, Samy Sosa, Lil Kim, Vanessa Williams, etc can bleach themselves and Rachel Dolezal and Sean (forget his last name) can get tans and claim to be mixed race when they have two white parents, you can change your nationality. You might want to learn up on Ghana and visit there if you are so determined to do this.

Well you guys on this forum say all sorts of terrible things about African Americans. Saying those things have consequences and clearly some African Americans do what they have to do escape from them.

Whether bleaching one's skin (Michael, Vanessa, Lil Kim) or changing one's nationality (the OP) people do what they have to do to protect themselves.

The OP could be trolling but she could be SERIOUS.

Yeah, but OP chose to only blame Black Men for her insecurity and failures. I guess we are the easy target, huh?
That's really pathetic.
