I am from a family of mixed cultures but I am a black man in America. I started learning about black culture at home from a Afro Caribbean perspective. We are part of the hue man race all colors. My outlook has always been global as taught by my parents. But America can be a culture shock to those that don’t know it’s history. It is important to know your history, to know your history is to know yourself. If you are not aware of self you are perpetually in the dark and fumbling around. We live in the culture of shock which is America.
