Rapper Drake, appeared in an interview recently and stated, “I identify as a black man”😳. Well, ain’t that some new ish. We have heard many people say that they may identify as another gender, but never a race.
Drake, hun you can’t IDENTIFY as a black man, because you are a BLACK MAN. That’s like me stating “I identify as a human”. Race and ethnicity are two different things. Your skin color defines your race, not the skin color of the people who brought you into this world.
Sure, other people may label you whatever they want. However, their opinion doesn’t define who YOU are. We have to stop allowing other people’s thoughts to hinder our own beliefs.
No one has the power to tell us who or what we are unless we give them that authority.
