Anything but Black –
Documentary series explores the complexities of racism and colourism in Central and South America!
“Who do you think you’re kidding – you ARE Black”, “You aren’t really Black”, “You’re mixed race / half caste / mestizo / mulato”, “Actually you’re white”. Reminds me of the “UnAfrican” conversation, an essentialist notion of blackness where people are arbitrary excluded and included. Like the boundaries created by recolonisation in the form of religion as it meets with gender, sexual orientation, class, race, war on terror, nationhood and the MARKET.
