Things you should know about the black Culture

Black culture is something incredible, despite what people think the future is bright for the race of African Americans. If you think about how quickly we have emerged, you would see that the possibilities of a complete and seemingly integrated society are not far away. Instead of thinking about all the negative aspects, all cultures have to look at blacks and see a race of people who 50 years ago had no civil rights, not to mention that our first 400 years or so in the western world was used in chains. Just think for a moment. Black culture in America was established and continued for almost half a millennium in slavery. We have only been free from slavery for only 140 years. Imagine if we had been free while we were slaves. However, our incredible progress is overshadowed by the fact that we have the most significant number of inmates in prison and other negative things like that. What's funny is that I hear mostly blacks spew out these statistics. As blacks, we must not only embrace our roots but also embrace our incredible progress.

Some people will define the black race as a ghetto, a hood, or a gang. Black Culture takes pride in who you are and where you come from. Nothing of the "ghetto" knows. Black culture has made such progress. It went from shackles to business. Black race is stepping out and owning their own business and making a name for themselves. 

You can see that black culture is a group of people with happiness and honesty. It is a culture in the United States with a good personality, qualities, good vibes, right speech, and simply amazing in life.

Culture is a starting point, not destiny. 

We are born black And no; I don't like it when you say "You are like whites to me" or "I don't see you black." I don't like it because you have to justify yourself. I am black and proud of it. This is my culture, and I know that culture defines our roots and creates a comforting home for us. Understanding who we are, knowing our culture and respecting blacks is important.

That said, belonging to a particular ethnic group is one thing, what you do as a person is different. You don't have to be a particular color to be a good person. You just have to be a good person, and that's it. 

Black culture is multicultural.

Both history and the new generation influence black culture in the present. Bringing ancestral traditions and cultures while adapting new ideas defines the black culture we see now. It is almost impossible to determine what authentic black is. 

"Black culture" is not defined by black people every time

"Black culture" is used most of the time as a promotional idea and has been carried out by white people. This question is not worth it, but it is worth thinking about. That someone who has no idea of ​​your story tells you about your ethnicity is something that will always be incomprehensible. Rappers molded to appeal to masses, roles of the black race written by some nonblack person who has never given a thought about who we are as people;

There is black culture, and there is "black culture." 

Black culture is, without quotes, an amalgam of multifaceted cultural contributions from many subcultures. Coming from different parts of Africa, the African Americans we know today have witnessed a smooth transition and amalgam of their subculture.

On the other hand, the so-called "black culture" is a lifestyle reference point established by specialists in marketing, fashion studios, and music, which is just an idea made from some assumptions about how to make money.

Most of the black races came from Africans brought directly from Africa to America and became slaves. Future slaves were initially captured in African wars or incursions and transported in the slave trade of the Atlantic.

African Americans descend from various ethnic groups, mainly from ethnic groups living in West and Central Africa, including the Sahel. A smaller number of African Americans descend from ethnic groups living in East and Southeast Africa. The largest ethnic groups to which African slaves belonged included Hausa, Bakongo, Igbo, Mandé, Wolof, Akan, Fon, Yoruba, and Makua, among others. Although these different groups varied in customs, religious theology and language, what they had in common was a way of life different from that of Europeans. Initially, most of the future slaves came from these villages and communities, but when they were first sent to America and enslaved, these different peoples had imposed European norms and beliefs, forcing them to eliminate themselves with tribal differences and forge a new history and culture that was a creolization of its common past, present, and European culture.
