I do not see the relevance of this really. As we like to say "One drop...black wi black", for not only is "black" genetically dominant, but is the ESSENCE of life. Was Bob Marley AFRIKAN? Of course! Was Adam Clayton Powell an AFRIKAN? Of course! How many Afrikans throughout the diaspora have some type of "mixture" running through their veins? It becomes ridiculous and confusing to start measuring the amount of "blackness" one has.
If you are of Afrikan Descent...YOU ARE AN AFRIKAN. Plain and simple.
My father is a light-skinned Afrikan/Moor, with mixture himself. My mother is Keltic european. And? BLACK MI BLACK! Whether I could "pass" or not, I am an AFRIKAN of mixed heritage.
I suppose it depends on the person. Some like to stride the fence...one foot here and one foot there. Personally, I cannot walk straight with my feet planted here and there. I walk straight because my 2 feet are planted at the ROOT, not to mention my mindset, worldview, works and loyalties.
It is the "Willy Lynch" syndrome that has us DIVIDED (and conquered) by these measurements. It is APARTHEID in nature...this one is "black" while this one is "colored"...bla bla bla
A man/woman without the knowledge of his past is as a tree without roots.
This ROOTSwoman knows hers. Simple.
