The current framework of race is very American influenced and retarded if u think about it. A lot of mixed people claiming black when they look like they have more European genes in them. Meanwhile brown and literally black skin people from Asia can never be black?

His father is of half Puerto Rican and half Ashkenazi Jewish descent (from Ukraine and Hungary), and is originally from Brooklyn, New York.[3][4][5] His mother emigrated from the Philippines to Hawaii as a child, and was of Filipino, and some Spanish, ancestry.

a collection of social media responses http://www.okayplayer.com/music/bruno-mars-cultural-appropriation-twitter-reaction.html

I feel like it’s great that he recognizes his influences. It’s great that he pays homage, but I personally don’t think that’s enough. I have an issue with Bruno being an unoriginal artist, he’s not a unique artist, he’s not a creative artist.

That is not the logic of bein black

 Black means struggle, black is negative, black exists only in the context of racist oppression. No one in black majority countries is black or identifies as black UNTIL they start facing racism and struggle because they are darker 

Black is a misnomer and we need to stop subscribing to it. Stop fighting for it. Stop fighting other people over it. Stop defendin it. We need to step away from black and all its nasty oppressive baggage

Yes 

But some people are still called black (at least in the Caribbean, your either black or brown) within colourism and it only represents the crap end of the stick or the struggle

But aside from that ive met jamaicans and nigerians who just dont identify as black first and foremost an that's cos they never grew up really where their skin colour was a political problem. Of course the affects of white supremacy impact them but its not the same impact it has on us who grow up as minorities knowing very well that we are black,
