they can’t say they don’t know who we are; seems as though they want to be “melaninated” Moors. I think I spelled that right lol!
@iame bey Exactly!
It used to make me livid, but not as much anymore after doing some research related to Moorish origin and associated influences. I tend to view such instances being less about racial animus and more about cultural and ethnic misappropriation perhaps under the guise of blanket commemoration. So-called whites actually do know more than garden variety “black” people who are stuck on RWS when they actually should focus on becoming Moorish American nationals.
My guess is this photo was taken during a Mummers Parade of some sort.
